wall and email inbox with creative, MSP-worthy articles. Recently, a friend passed along this article on exercises for better sex. Although this is a pretty common topic in popular magazines, the article took a different spin than what I’m used to seeing.

Usually articles like this mention exercises to strengthen your PC muscles, such as kegels. Or else they report on unusually fit individuals, such as a recent study that found enhanced clitoral blood flow among female athletes. This one, however, focused more on exercising the muscles that you may not normally associate with sex, such as your quads and hip flexers, your glutes and thighs, and abs. They also mention that it’s important to be limber, in order to try varying positions comfortably. So, if you want some sexy motivation to get to the gym, check out the article!

    That was an interesting read, thanks! I was a little surprised to see that the article didn’t mention upper body strength, though; unless someone gravitates toward the bottom half of missionary position 24/7, it’s important to have strong chest, forearm, and triceps muscles in order to help support and brace one’s weight. Many yoga positions, from plank to downward dog, are good for working those muscle groups, or you could just make sure to include some push-ups in your routine.

    So I guess maintaining benefits everyone. This is something we cheerleaders & dancers have known all along, especially the flexibility part;) I think push ups are so important for the development of upper body strength & it is a core exercise.
