These sexercise tips for men can leave you with bulging biceps, a solid stomach and toned thighs.
Sex can greatly complement your training by specifically targeting your core, cardiovascular fitness and some of the largest muscles in your body.
“Change positions every few minutes to ensure that you vary the stimulation and to target different muscle groups.”
So next time you need to hit the gym, try one – or all – of these moves instead…
What it works: “As the woman thrusts upwards, this works her glutes and hamstrings,” explains Decford Hutchins, one half of personal training duo ‘TeamDyle’, who train at LA Fitness in West India Quay, Canary Wharf.“The man is bearing the woman’s weight, so his core needs to be engaged, while his chest and triceps need to work hard to stay in the position for a considerable amount of time.”
What you need to do: The woman should be underneath the man, who is on his hands and knees. The woman wraps her arms around the man, lifting her body off the floor, with both feet planted on the floor, either side of the man’s. Kcals burnt in 30 mins: Him 135; her 97
What it works: “The man needs to be strong in the bicep department and have substantial quad and core strength,” says Kyle Maslen, the other half of TeamDyle.
“The woman will work her biceps as she keeps her arms wrapped around the man’s neck, and she will need to engage her core to maintain her position.
”What you need to do: The guy stands while the woman wraps her legs around his hips and her arms around his neck. The man supports the woman by holding her bottom.

The Wheelbarrow Race
What you need to do:
The man stands behind the woman, lifting up her lower body by the front of her thighs, while the woman plants her hands on the floor.
What it works: “The man works his biceps as he holds her thighs in a fixed position,” Hutchins says. “He will also use his quads and glutes due to the weight-bearing pelvic-thrust motion.
The woman will use her core to stay in position and will work her chest and triceps as she supports her upper body.”

The Reverse Cowgirl
What you need to do:
The man lies down and the woman straddles him, facing his feet. She can stay upright, but leaning back maximizes her workout.
What it works: “Although the man appears to be in a relaxed position, he can still work his muscles with thrusting and glute contraction,” Maslen says. “The woman is definitely doing most of the work, though. If she leans back she will need to use her core and triceps to keep her stable, while also contracting her glutes.”
Sex Really Does You Good!
Sex can keep you fit, and it can help you shed extra weight. Having sex is similar to a High-Intensity Interval Workout (HIIT). An interval workout is where you exercise at an intense level for a certain amount of time, followed up by a less intense period, then back to intense again. Well, what does that sound like to you? Sex!!
Studies show that interval training for just 15 minutes a few times a week can produce better results than someone running an hour on a treadmill. This type of workout burns more fat than jogging. Not only that, it helps speed up your metabolism! The best part is that you only need your partner, and no gym membership is required.
How many calories can you burn having sex? You can burn at least 80-300 calories depending on how long and intense your time is with you man. A well-timed quickie can help get rid of those love handles.
In addition, sex helps you relieve stress, and studies show it has helped relieve depression. It also boosts the immune system, helping you avoid nasty colds and other sicknesses. Sex can improve PMS symptoms (hallelujah), arthritis pain, and headaches.
Being too tired for sex is probably the number one excuse (besides having a headache) that a woman gives when she doesn’t want to have sex. You may want to stop using that one too. Research shows that oxytocin which is released when you have an orgasm helps you to sleep better. Sleep not only helps you prepare for the next day, it also helps you get to a healthy weight.
You can sleep better, get fit, and increase your metabolism in just 20 minutes of sexercise.
