How To Become A Sexual Athlete in 5 Steps
Since reaching my 40s, I have done the typical male thing of believing I can do everything I did ten years ago. Although I had enough beers to take out a brewery and eaten a whole country of chicken during that time doesn’t count…
At least in my head.
The reality is that the mirror and last summers family reunion basketball game where I learned my vertical is now horizontal has shot my ego in the foot. I was not the same but I was doing the same workout routines I learned when I was 20 at University of MD.
That had to change and from research I learned that that how you should workout depends on what goals you want to attain. A swimmers workout is nowhere near a bodybuilders workout. A sexual performance athletes workout is very different too.
Sexual Performance Athlete
Although most people don’t think of it this way, sex is an athletic event. While you can enjoy yourself without being athletic at all, it is obviously not going to be as fun. There may not be an Olympic Medal for it but losing in the bedroom every night is the agony of defeat.
A sexual performance athlete is much like any other athlete in that they exercise, eat and study their sport for specific results. You won’t see Tiger Woods shooting 500 free throws a day (maybe he should now…but that’s a different story).
For the sport of sex, training should done for:
- Sexual Stamina
- Testosterone Production
Flexibility is number one on the list both because it is the most overlooked aspect of sex but the most important. Kung Fu masters focus on flexibility because it is the key to speed. The further you can stretch gives you a wider range of motion for your muscles to move rapidly.
During sex you may want to be able to thrust quickly and without flexibility you won’t be able to get to the speed you want. Even worse you could tighten up, get muscle spasms or plain get worn out.
You could also find yourself in a great new position that feels incredible. Without flexibility you won’t be able to stay in that position for long without feeling uncomfortable. Having sex releases a ton of pain killing chemicals but that won’t make up for lack of flexibility.
2. Sexual Stamina
How long you can last deals with both controlling your ejaculation, keeping your erection and not gassing out. There are techniques you can use for the first two but not falling out after 6 minutes of intense sex is a workout issue.
Sex is an aerobic activity for the most part. You can be in one position for a long time, then switch to another for a short time and then go into another. Having flexibility allows you to get in those positions but stamina says what you can do in those positions and for how long.
Since sex can speed up or slow down depending on how it feels, you have to have the wind to keep up over a long period of time.
Unless you are into using equipment or props, for the most part you are just dealing with body weight…yours and hers. You don’t want to be on top supporting yourself with your arms and your chest locks up.
The strength you need for sex isn’t the same as say a football player. Most sports have explosive movements followed by a period of rest. Sex is continuous motion going from one position to the next.
Your strength and stamina work together to allow you to have sex comfortably in a variety of positions. Of course your strength and stamina really counts most when it comes to your…
Your core is the band of muscles that starts from the top of your stomach all the way down to your thighs. If you have noticed that you are starting to lean forward when you walk or stand then your core is weak.
One of the reasons why women are extremely turned on by a 6 pack of abs is because it is a sign that the core is strong. It is also an indication that the penis can rise above 45 degrees which means it can rub her g-spot the right way. (Ok…most women may not know why they like a 6 pack but those are the results of it).
Since your penis sits right in the middle of your core, it is the area of the body that controls your sexual performance. If your core is not strong then you lose thrusting capabilities and stamina.
5. Testosterone Production
Just like a bodybuilder’s workout focuses on size, a sexual athletes workout has to focus on testosterone production. Without testosterone your erection strength and stamina gets weaker.
There are certain types of exercise that helps and hurts testosterone production and you need to know them when you train. Marathon runners and long distance bicyclist are known to have low testosterone issues because humans are not designed to go that far that fast.
On the other hand, certain types of weight lifting routines tend to help produce more testosterone than others.
The best workout routine for sexual performance is what I call Stallion Training. This workout is for a true work horse. It combines strength condition weightlifting with relatively short periods of high intensity workouts.
Most guys are used to the football or bodybuilding weightlifting routine where you do 6 to 10 repetitions in a set. For sexual performance it actually limits you unless you are doing it all the time like a professional athlete.
I recommend doing much higher reps with a lighter weight. Doing 25 reps in a set better fits the movements of sex and increases your testosterone at a higher level than lower reps. This is because you will actually develop more lactic acid which is a precursor to testosterone.
The weight you want to workout with depends on when you find the burn (lactic acid buildup). The first set might feel easy but the second set will have a good burn around the 20th rep. By the 4th set you will probably have to slow down or stop before you get to your goal.
The great thing about this routine is that you will not feel sore after you finished. Here is a workout routine sample.
Four sets of 25 reps for:
Overhead Dumbbell Press
Seated Leg Curl Machine
Seated Cable Row
Lat Pull Down
At the end of this routine you will feel great and tired. Obviously there are a wide variety of exercises to choose from but the point is to do more reps for every set. You can increase the weights, reps or sets as you advance.
These workouts allow you to boost your stamina without sacrificing testosterone. Too much aerobic activity lowers testosterone so you want to make it count.
I use Shawn T’s T25 (you may have seen the infomercials). I like it because it only takes 25 minutes, you get a good sweat, it increases your stamina, it focuses on your core and you don’t feel sore afterwards.
I used to do the Insanity workouts…but it was insane. I will say though that it got me into such great shape that during sex I could pound away as hard and as long as I wanted without getting winded at all. My girlfriend absolutely loved it. Me too.
Being a sexual athlete requires that you get the right types of stretching, weight lifting and high intensity workouts in. It also means you should keep studying sex to improve your physical abilities and techniques.
While you will impress the hell out of your woman, you will be more impressed with yourself. Get to it!
