That sex is a great form of exercise is a given. But, adding some moves to your sexy arsenal or tweaking some of those well-polished ones will mean that though deriving pleasure is the main aim, you will also be toning and sculpting specific areas of your body while doing so. Sweating it out to a fitter body could never be more fun now, could it? Here are some moves to help you rock the bed and your bod.
Up against the wall: Why not? It’s hot, passionate and as we now know, helps build and tone your muscles too. All the energy spent in holding on to each other works on your core muscles as well helps tone your leg and arm muscles. Did we mention that it also helps build stamina? The walls of your house are going to look all bright to you now!
Squat and ride: Squats and pleasure don’t normally fit in the same sentence. But, stay with us here. Tweak the woman-on-top position so that while your man lies flat on his back, you can squat and use your hands and legs to help you ride him. Now that’s one pleasurable full-body workout neither will say no to. Do go slow, though. You do not want to wake up to cramps in your back.
Missionary rules: Altering the missionary ever so slightly will not just turn it from boring to spicy, but also help you tone your rear and abs. Now that we’ve got you thinking about the missionary in an entirely different light, here’s what you got to do. Prop your legs onto his shoulder, and squeeze the butt muscles while you are at it. Your abs are worked on with maximum effect, and you get toned legs in return too.
Arch away: This one is for the slightly more limber crowd. Straddle your man while he is seated, throw your head back and hold on to his ankles or feet. Not only does this position find a place of honour in the pleasurable moves list, it will work on your glutes, quads and core muscles. Did we hear you say win-win already?
Run with scissors: This position will properly work your hip flexors. Lie on your side and get your partner to do the same, so that he’s spooning you. If you’re on your left side and he’s on his right, raise your right leg in the air at a 30-40 degree angle, instead of placing it on his torso. Hold it there for as long as you can, while he thrusts. This position works similar to how a plank exercise works, as well as as a bicep curl because you’re not moving your muscle.
