A big part of having a healthy sex life is having a healthy body—if you feel strong and flexible, it will help in the bedroom. If you feel stressed out, weak, and lethargic, however, it will show.

Working out specifically to improve your sex life might sound odd, but it goes far beyond merely pumping your biceps or showing off your abs. First, the right workout program will boost your testosterone production to keep your libido high and potentially counteract the natural decrease in T levels as you age. Second, exercise can skyrocket your cardio and energy levels, allowing you to last longer during sex. And if you have the flexibility of a cinderblock, the correct workout plan will help loosen your muscles and unlock different positions. Your partner will thank you.

The Better-Sex Workout

Full disclosure: This workout isn't about doing a ton of deadlifts and setting a new personal record on your bench press—it's about improving your total-body strength, stamina, flexibility, and movement. That's why the routine blends dynamic strength exercises with helpful stretches and "show off" moves for more confidence in the bedroom.
