This means spending time on different aspects of your fitness training. You can't just spend 30 minutes on the elliptical and expect to be in sex shape. You have to combine stretching, weight training, and cardio. "Exercise improves various aspects of fitness such as stamina, flexibility, and strength," Kinkel says. "These components can also help increase the quality of your sex life by adding variety, movement, and the ability to last longer.”
When you work out more, your body wants more sex
As many a gym-goer will tell you, working out can really put you in the mood for a hot and sweaty sex session. It is science! When you work out, your body releases endorphins: those beautiful hormones that make you feel euphoric. The "runner’s high" is no myth.
Unsurprisingly, these endorphins are also released during sex. Your body recognizes that both exercise and sex make it feel fantastic and wants to continue those feelings of pleasure. "Because this feeling of a euphoric 'high' can transcend each activity, a hard workout can elicit the desire to extend this influx of endorphins," Kinkel says. "Intense exercise helps bolster testosterone levels as well, which will be elevated following a workout, increasing the desire for post-lift sex."
