Working out has so many health benefits. In addition to improving circulation, aiding in stress reduction, promoting more restful sleep and enhancing longevity, regular physical exercise can also pay off in your private moments as well.
So here are 5 key exercises that will benefit you and your partner equally.
Planks can increase your endurance, strengthen your back, prevent lower back injury, strengthen your arms and improve your stamina.
Planks are like Push-ups, but there is no actual push-up involved. Rather you balance on your knees and the tips of your toes while keeping your body parallel to the floor for as long as possible.
If you are dread growing older and losing your continence, Kegels are the exercise you should prioritise. Kegel repetitions increase pelvic muscle strength, coordination, continence and performance in other critical areas as well.
Squats focus on a muscle group that often gets ignored unless you have to walk up or down a flight of stairs. But squats are fabulous for boosting circulation all through the lower body and the abdominal/pelvic region.
What squats do to your lower body, push-ups can do for your upper body. Your arms may be so used to typing on a keyboard or turning a steering wheel that they have forgotten how strong they are.
Doing push-ups will remind them and you of how great it feels to have a strong powerful body.
Flexibility is always an asset for performance in any area of life. Butterfly is such an exercise which will offer flexibility in the abdominal and pelvic area.
Just lay with your back on the floor and legs outstretched. Then bring your heels together and let your knees fall gently outward. Hold for as long as is comfortable and repeat daily to build flexibility.
