Researchers suggest that every man will suffer from erectile dysfunction, or ED, at some point in their lives. Embarrassing and frustrating are just a few emotions that begin to describe the psychological toll it can cause.
There are plenty of options to choose from when deciding your course of action when combatting ED, ranging from natural supplements to enhancement pills, but exercise is one of the most commonly recommend natural solutions. Here are three exercises that can improve ED:
1. Cardio Exercises
ED can be caused by poor blood flow to the penis. High cholesterol, obesity and diabetes all can cause poor blood flow. Just taking a short run can help reduce the chance of encountering any of these.
Running, biking or the elliptical are just a few ways you can get your cardio exercise. It’s important to take small steps before you run. Get yourself into a regular routine before pushing it to the max. However you choose to workout, the important thing is to increase your heart rate for prolonged periods of time.
2. Pelvic Exercises
The “Kegel” exercise is something women have been using for years. Well, fellas, it’s not just for the ladies anymore.
Some doctors say that this exercise will improve your control of ejaculation. While urinating, stop your stream several times. This will affect the muscles on the pelvic floor. Hold for five seconds then relax. Try to repeat this 10 to 20 times, 2 to 3 times a day.
3. Balance Exercises
The key to improving one’s balance is a good core. This is also very important in bed. Many variations of the push up and side lunges are great ways to increase balance.
Yoga is also a great for balance. Additional benefits to yoga include stress reduction and better mental health.
Exercises like these can go a long way to help your struggle with ED. They will also greatly benefit many other areas in your life.
