Confidence is not only important when it comes to our job and careers-it is something that influences every aspect of our lives. Being confident in ourselves is an important aspect to a healthy sex life that many men overlook because they are too focused elsewhere.
It doesn’t matter if you look good, are wearing the most expensive suit and generally look the part if you don’t have the confidence to go along with it. Looks will get you to the door, but your confidence is what gets you through it. Luckily for those of us who could use a little more confidence, there is plenty that we can do to boost it.
How to Overcome a Lack of Libido
Before you worry about performing well during sex, you actually have to get there first. Many men have the problem of a lack of desire to even do the deed, and it isn’t too much of a surprise to find out that these men also underperform. This lack of a sex drive usually has to do with a low production of testosterone within the individual.
The best way to increase your libido is to take supplements to improve it, and to exercise regularly. Let’s be honest here, many of us eat a horrible diet and aren’t giving our body everything that it needs. The body needs certain amino acids such as l-arginine along with other nutrients to produce testosterone, which we can provide to our bodies through supplementation.
Exercising regularly is another way to help boost libido also, as it has shown to help improve testosterone production in the body. You don’t have to devote hours of your day to get these benefits either-as they can be gained through as little as 30 minutes of exercise a day, for only a few times a week.
Getting in shape is going to help you with your endurance during sex in general, as push-ups, pull-ups, planks and other bodyweight exercises closely mimic the positions we are in during sex.
What Can You Do to Combat Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction is another issue many men face, especially as they age. This condition can really destroy a man’s confidence as it can cause an inability to maintain or even get an erection. The key with erectile dysfunction is knowing what the cause is, and erectile dysfunction can be a signal for health problems as a whole.
The ability to get an erection has all to do with our blood vessels and blood flow, which of course is determined by the heart and cardiovascular system. Not being able to get an erection more than likely means that your blood vessels in general are in bad shape, which is of course something you want to avoid.
Cardiovascular exercise is the best way to improve blood flow and oxygen transport to the cells and tissues within the body. Again, like with the weight training for testosterone production, you don’t have to spend hours of your day devoted to exercise.
This is especially the case for cardiovascular exercise, as many people associate it with marathons, and other long distance events. You don’t need to spend all that time to reap the benefits if you know how to do so.
The key here is to get your heart rate elevated to about 80% of its max, and then to keep it there throughout exercise. This will give you the cardiovascular benefits without the need for long distance exercise. This can even be done with weights to get the cardiovascular benefits while building up more muscle mass simultaneously.
Soreness After Sex?
Nothing can be more embarrassing that not being able to hold a position during sex, and then being sore afterwards. If you can’t make it through sex without feeling sore it should be a huge indicator that you are out of shape, and that you should do something about it.
Yoga classes are a great way to both improve your flexibility while at the same time improving your endurance. Doing yoga for sex is going to help you stay in those positions for a longer period of time, allowing you to stay there for as long as she wants instead of your back.
