If you are reluctant to commit to an exercise regimen, consider this: in addition to delivering various amazing health benefits, exercise can also improve your sex life. Here’s how.
The biggest boost exercise can give your sex life is to reduce the risk of suffering erectile dysfunction. Exercise that works in opening up the arteries for the benefit of the heart also increases the flow of blood to the penis. Studies have shown that men over the age of 50 who are physically active are less likely to be impotent than those who are inactive. Those who exercise enjoy better erections, with the most active men seeing the most benefits.
Yet even the more moderate exercise levels such as a brisk 30 minute walk on most days of the week will reduce the risk of ED. Other studies have also found that many men who suffer from ED may even have a reversal of symptoms once they get fit. Men who exercise regularly are also more likely than couch potatoes to enjoy a healthy body weight. This is a key benefit seeing as being overweight is yet another risk factor for ED.
Men who are physically active may also suffer fewer symptoms relating to an enlarged prostate, which is a common condition known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BHP). Men who suffer from BHP have to often urinate frequently, or have a weak stream. Moreover, men suffering from severe symptoms of BHP may also have low libido, have problems keeping their erection and enjoy sex less.
