Getting the Best Workout From Your Sexual Experiences
You may have heard the factoid that sex can burn more than 170 calories per hour. While that’s an added benefit for some, others may want to ramp-up their activity to use up as many calories as they can all while enjoying the company and talents of their lover. By changing around your usual sex positions, you may be able to up the rate at which your body burns off calories. Here are a few positions to try that not only give you a decent work out, but can also tone and tighten certain parts of your body.
Missionary – While the most traditional position for making love generally puts the woman flat on her back, there are a few changes that you can make to work out key muscle groups. While your lover is thrusting into you, you can position yourself so that it is easier for them to access. By lifting and holding your hips of the bed, you work on your core and butt muscles. Want to up that exercise level? While your lover is pounding into you, match their actions by thrusting back into them. The main factor with this position is NOT to use your lower back muscles. Not only is it not as effective as using your core and butt muscles, you may actually throw your back out doing so!
Cowgirl and Reverse Cowgirl – This is another position that’ll work on your ass and core muscles. When riding on top, press your thighs into the sides of your lover. This will get those inner-leg muscles working overtime. If you’re looking for a hardcore workout in this position, rather than supporting your weight on the fronts of your legs, get up onto your feet and squat. Use your arms to balance yourself against your lover so that you don’t fall over while he’s penetrating you.
Bridge – Looking for a sexual work out that will get those arms and abs in shape? Try the bridge position for sex! For those who aren’t as familiar with this lover’s stance, you may recall the position from your PE days at school. The bridge position is when the woman faces upward, and uses her arms and legs to push her body off the ground – so that she resembles a bridge. Taking this position into the bedroom requires some training. You want to make sure that you can hold yourself up while your lover is pounding into you. What it takes is some major strength in your biceps, triceps, glutes, abs, as well as all the major muscle groups in your legs. The great part is that when the lover is on their knees, the penis or dildo lines right up with the bridged-woman’s vagina.
Lean-To – For those who can’t handle the Bridge, try the Lean-To. Start by laying on your back. With your feet planted downward, push your hips into the sky and keep them there while your lover enters you. Some women find an additional challenge is to wrap their legs around their over’s hips and hold themselves up using that at support. Expect a huge work out for your ab muscles!
