Exercise is good for the circulatory system. It keeps blood flowing smoothly throughout the body.
Exercise does more than improve erections, however. Staying fit keeps a man’s weight under control, may increase his testosterone levels, and boosts his confidence.
It can also reduce depression and anxiety. These factors can affect erections as well as other aspects of s*xual health.
In this article, based on facts and findings from healthline, here are exercises that can help prevent erectile dysfunction.
1. Kegel exercises for ED
The pelvic floor muscles are muscles inside your pelvic region that play roles in controlling and using the structures inside—your bladder, p*nis, and anus. Pelvic floor muscle exercises, or Kegel exercises, help strengthen these muscles.
Pelvic muscles also put pressure on blood vessels in the genital, assisting blood flow and helping to maintain erections.
2. Aerobic exercise
Other than strengthening the pelvic floor, the most effective workout is aerobic. Aerobic exercise of moderate-to-vigorous intensity can help improve function and reduce other conditions that can contribute to erectile dysfunction such as high blood pressure and excess weight. Examples of aerobic exercises are walking, swimming, jogging, and cycling.
3. Pilates exercises
Practicing regular pilates exercises is also a great way to fight erectile dysfunction. Here are some pilates exercises you should try: knee fall out, supine foot raise, and pelvic curl.
Resistance training (which includes weightlifting) has also been shown to help improve cardiovascular health. And as we’ve mentioned, cardiovascular health is intrinsically linked to erectile health.
When resistance training was combined with aerobic exercise in a series of trials, men who responded positively to the physical exercise regimen experienced a 15% improvement in erectile function.
