If sex simply doesn’t last as long as you and your partner would like, you aren’t alone. The fact is that almost 50% of men finish in two minutes or less. Fortunately, there are exercises to help you last longer in bed, whether you are struggling with premature ejaculation or just lose control. So, how can I be so sure these exercises work? Well, I’m not ashamed to admit that finishing before my partner even got started is a problem that I have dealt with in the past.
Lasting Longer In Bed – What Will Work For You?
When looking for ways to improve how long I lasted in bed, I stumbled upon quite a few exercises…some seemed legit and some were nothing short of ridiculous. After a long period of trying various exercises in different combinations, I finally hit upon a set of exercises that actually work.
So before you go buying products like desensitizing creams or even viagra for treating premature ejaculation issues, try some more natural exercises. Here’s everything you need to know about the different exercises you can do that will not only lengthen how long you last in bed but will also enhance both you and your partner’s level of sexual satisfaction.
A strong upper body is crucial for a more exciting and longer lasting time when engaging in any positions where you’ll be on top. Keeping the balls of your feet flat on the floor and your hands slightly beyond the width of your shoulders, lower yourself until your chest almost touches the ground. Then, slowly raise yourself back into the starting position.
Three sets of 15-20 push-ups, four times a week was all I needed to put an end to my shaking arms and cracking joints, which I realized was part of the reason I didn’t last very long in bed.
Regardless of what you may have heard, kegels aren’t just for women. They are especially effective for men struggling with premature ejaculation. Plus, I noticed stronger and firmer erections after doing them for several weeks. Best of all, they are simple and no one knows you are doing them. Just contract your PC (pubococcygeus) muscle (the one you can use to stop the flow of urine midstream). Squeeze and hold the muscle for 5 seconds, then relax.
For the best results, do at least one set of 10 Kegels, three times a day. For even better results, do them more often.
Planks help you develop resistance that enhances your duration, while also working to strengthen your core muscles. Just get down on all fours, just like the position you get into to do push-ups. Now, use your forearms to support all your weight, while making sure to keep your back as straight as possible.
Instead of focusing on the number of sets you do, the goal is to hold the position as long as you can.
Crunches help create strong abdominal muscles, which not only can help you last longer, but also can create amazing sensations during sex that both you and your partner will appreciate. Lie down on your back and bend your knees. Cross your hands over the front of your chest and lift your body.
Make an effort to do three sets of 15, at least four times a week for the maximum results.
5. Breathing Exercises
Breathing exercises help you stay relaxed and keep your level of arousal under control. Plus, focusing on your breathing works to distract you from the sexual, physical stimuli your body is feeling. From your diaphragm, take semi-deep breaths that last anywhere from 3 to 6 seconds. Then, every 30 to 60 seconds, hold your breath for 3 to 6 seconds. The concentration it takes to do these breathing exercises will definitely help you improve how long you last in bed.
If you are not currently satisfied with how long you last in bed and/ or your overall sexual performance, do yourself a favor and incorporate the exercises above into your daily routine. You’ll be sure to reap the rewards in the bedroom.
