Exercise isn’t just about toning up and slimming down. Yes, it’s great for your health and achieving a sexy body, but exercising can also help make sex more enjoyable.
Why? It’s important to remember that chest, back, core and leg strength are the key areas that tend to make all the difference when it comes to boosting your performance…and the below exercises target all those muscles that sex tends to make use of the most.
If you have any questions about how to perform these moves, ask a trainer.
This exercise is key for both women and men. If you can’t do push-ups traditionally, that is, with your legs straight, as opposed to on your knees, don’t worry, just do what you can, allowing your body to strengthen and progress over time. You can also try push-ups against the wall. The most important thing is to make sure to keep your back straight, squeeze your butt and suck in those abs. Oh yes…and breathe!
Otherwise known as a hip raise, this move helps strengthen your core and your pelvis. To perform this more, lie on the floor, arms at your sides, knees bent, and heels on the floor. Lift your hips off the floor until your knees, hips, and shoulders form a strong, straight line. Then lower your hips, without letting them touch the ground.
These will not only help strengthen your thigh muscles, but they can also helps strengthen your vaginal walls. Stand with your feet wider than shoulder-width apart, toes pointed out and hands on your hips. Slowly bend your knees (never letting your knees go past your ankles), then press up through your heels to stand.
In additional to knocking out pushups, additional pushing and pulling exercises are recommended as well, such as rows, flys, and lateral raises.
This exercise will keep your back, legs and torso strong. Choose your weight, start in a neutral bent-over position, and raise your body to lift the weight. This is an easy exercise to get right and wrong, so ask for help if you need it to prevent injury.
This can be performed with or without weights. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Push your hips back as you bend your knees (as if you’re trying to sit back and into a chair). Again, if you need help making sure you’re doing this move correctly, ask a trainer.

7. They said u lost a step, wasn't explosive as once was, the best days was in the real view, questioned your drive, your leadership, your commitment, you don't have killer instinct, going back home is the worst mistake in your career, he got the coach fired, players traded, won't work between him and Kyrie, Him and Kev won't work, love your teammates to much, there's no way he can deliver a championship in his hometown, etc etc etc.... But guess what THATS NONE OF MY BUSINESS #StriveForGreatness #ThisOneIsForTheLand #PutSomeRespeckOnMyName Hahahaha!!! Yes sir
