March 20, at 8: This week, I decided to go around to random women in the student union and ask what is the most common myth they heard about sex and your body. Twelve of them told me that they had heard that sex makes you burn calories.
You can burn hundreds of calories during sex and the longer you and your partner do it, the more you burn. Sex is also good for your body because it allows you to tone your muscles. There are numerous sexual positions that allow you to tone your abs, thighs, and butt. Below I have included my top five favorites. Both Cowgirl and Reverse Cowgirl are effective in working your abs, arms, and butt. While riding your partner, squeeze your core and butt.
For a triceps workout, do Reverse Cowgirl and extend your arms backward to hold your body up. Standing Standing is a position that requires the strength of both you and your partner. If you have both of your legs wrapped around him, you work your core, upper legs, and arms as you use balance to hold yourself up. I prefer standing, because it is a position that will not only improve your physical strength, but your stamina as well.
Bridge This is a great position to tone your entire body. With your back on the floor, push your arms and feet off the ground to raise your body. If you have good balance, you can wrap your legs around him, but if not, keep your feet planted on the floor. This position works your arms, lower abs, quads, calves, and glutes because you have to hold your body up the entire time your partner is thrusting.
Missionary People always make this sound like a boring sexual position. However, it has one of the biggest effects on your butt and abdomen. Missionary is also good for stretching and toning your inner thighs because you have your legs extended and open for a long period of time.
If you want to enhance your missionary experience, stretch more frequently before you and your partner have sex. If your partner can extend your leg above his shoulder, it will allow for deeper penetration and work more of your butt and thigh muscles. Doggy-Style If you have not tried this position, it should be next on your to-do list. For this position, you get on all fours, and your partner thrusts into you from behind.
It works your core by forcing you to stabilize yourself. For a full arm and shoulder workout, hold yourself up completely like you would do during a push-up. Doggy-Style also works your glutes and abs.
