If you like to keep track of your daily steps and find ways to incorporate extra exercise into everyday activities, then this news might make your day. There are sex positions that give you a workout, so you can get fit while you get laid. It’s basically the best version of multitasking.
Although you may not log the same cardio benefits as swimming a mile, for instance, these positions can help you work on some strength training and toning. They won’t replace your regular workout (unless you and your partner are exceptionally active) but they can supplement your normal exercise routines. After all, what’s the point of all that weight lifting if you can’t put those strong muscles to good use?
Functional fitness, or training that helps your body prepare for real-life situations, is a big trend in the workout realm, as explained on WebMD. And working out during sex may be the best way to prep those crucial muscles that help you and your SO during the main event. It’s one form of training that will only get better in time.
Pleasing your partner, working your core, and — let’s be honest — showing off at the same time can really amp up your sex life. It’s a great way to strengthen your relationship and make fitness a very enjoyable aspect of your everyday life. Basically? There is no downside. Although you may never look at plank position the same way again.
