Ladies, we exercise (if we do) for a variety of reasons. We want to feel good. We love the thrill of achievement, the competitive edge, and the fact it can make us seem like a good old fashioned rock star.

But let’s be honest. We also do it because we want to look great… IN THE BUFF.

You know what I’m talking about.

But exercise can also be done to improve your sex life! 


Continuing in my series: Fit for Sex, I’d like to talk about (and demonstrate) the benefits of a traditional Pilates move called Open Leg Rocker (Rolling Like a Ball or Closed Leg Rocker for beginners), and how it can get you in better shape for a better sex life.

FULL DISCLOSURE: I’m not an exercise kinesiologist or scientist who’s studied how the body reacts during sex as a result of doing these exercises. I’m just offering demonstrations of exercises I’ve found that can be beneficial, based on research I’ve done on my own (I’m a big proponent for people doing their own research and being their own best wellness advocates).


So here we go:

Open Leg Rocker, improves your core strengthincreases inner thigh flexibilityimproves balance and it’s an amazing hamstring and inner thigh lengthener. It also enables you to have incredible control in your core region. Additionally the massage of the spine that takes place stimulates the body and opens the receptors for greater stimulation during sex! For these reasons, it can be excellent for improving your sex life. Think about it: Strong core, great balance, stimulated receptors and increased flexibility… HELLO! You will open up a world of possibilities for your sex life! And ladies, this little exercise will prepare you to be able to do those KEGEL or Pelvic Floor exercises more effectively.

Watch my quick video demonstration and then get to it ladies!
