01 May 5 Exercises Scientifically Proven to Boost Libido
The right exercise program can completely change your life for the better. It can help you lose weight, get stronger, enjoy better health and be the best version of yourself. However, exercise can do even more for you. In fact, there has been a great deal of research on exercise and how it is scientifically proven to help boost libido.
Take a look at five different exercises you can add to your routine that will not only help you get healthier but will help you enjoy a boost in your sexual health and libido.
- Yoga- There are so many great benefits of yoga, and improved sexual performance may be one of them. In fact, research has found that regular yoga practice can help with premature ejaculation in men and help improve sexual function in women. This includes desire, arousal, orgasms, and lubrication.
- Strength Training- Using resistance bands or weights to increase muscle can boost libido more than cardio exercises alone can. This may have to do with the fact that strength training is a better stress reliever than cardio.
- Kegels- Kegel exercises are designed to help strengthen the pelvic floor muscles—but studies also show they can help boost libido in both men and women. For women, they can improve orgasm, for men, it can help delay ejaculation.
- Swimming- Swimming regularly, just three times a day for 30 minutes, can help with sex drive and can improve endurance during intercourse. It can also result in healthy weight loss, which is known to improve sexual endurance as well.
- Walking- Daily walks of just 30 minutes can go a long way for your health—and your sex drive. Studies have found just 30 minutes of regular walking can actually decrease the risk of erectile dysfunction in men. It can also help with healthy weight reduction as well which can boost sexual drive and endurance.
Overall, research such as one study published in Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise has found that one-time, acute exercise sessions are more likely to boost sexual arousal. Meanwhile, chronic training endurance training, such as marathon training, is correlated with lower libido in men.
