How Exercise Can Improve Your Love Life

The next time you’re contemplating whether you really want to the gym, a new study on the benefits of exercise has found that making the effort may improve your sex life. As reported by CNN Health, exercise offers both physiological and psychological boosts for better sex.

It’s pretty well established that exercise boosts levels of potent brain chemicals like serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine, which may help buffer some of the effects of stress, as well as put you in a frame of mind that in the long run could contribute to sexual health. This includes exercise of all kinds, including general activities via walking, gardening and simply moving about.

Exercise also helps you feel happier, as well as make you make you look and feel younger in a number of ways. It can help you to be more flexible, sleep better and lower your risk of chronic disease.

The good news is it doesn't take much exercise to reap the benefits, provided you're willing to work hard. Just 12 minutes a week, or four minutes a day for three days was all it took to improve fitness levels in overweight, inactive middle-aged men. If you’re pressed for time, high-intensity interval training (HIIT) is something you may want to try, no matter your age or fitness level.

That's one of the great things about HIIT — you can tweak it to your needs. You can still get benefits from working out at a slightly lower intensity; you simply increase the time you work out to make up for it. You'll still be working out very intensely, so your total workout will still be short, relatively speaking. I typically recommend an HIIT session of 20 minutes.
