Do you have a busy lifestyle and hate hitting the gym? What if there was a way to make your fitness routine that little bit more fun? Having sex can burn as many calories as a 30-minute jog. And you won’t even need to lace up your trainers.Research has shown that women burn around 90 calories during sex, but of course to see real results, it’s all about how much effort you put in. Stuart recommends that you should spend around an hour beneath the sheets, so if you’re used to a five-minute fix, you’ll need to slowly build up your stamina. A steamy hour-long sex session will work your cardio and your core, so you’ll be getting fitter, boosting your strength and toning up your core muscles all at the same time. Changing positions several times during intercourse is like interval training – it’s a great cardiovascular workout. But sex isn’t just about a physical release, it has a positive effect on virtually every part of us. Sex releases endorphins to make us feel light-hearted, levels of the hormone oxytocin rise by about 500% – making us feel relaxed, it boosts the immune system and it can make you look younger too. But the best part is that it really connects you to your partner. ‘feeling loved and accepted and attractive is central to our happiness.’So what are you waiting for? Want to shape up between the sheets? These are the moves you need to work into your bedtime routine… Here are my favourite sexercise positions – make sure you try them all to ensure you burn maximum calories!1. Get on top: There are different positions that benefit the woman and those that are better for the man. For example, the missionary sex position is a fantastic workout for men, but it is not challenging for women. For that reason, make sure to take it in turns to go on top to ensure that both partners are working hard.2. Women try the cowgirl position: The lower part of the woman’s legs are braced on the bed or floor which will activate her bum and core muscles. As long as your man can last this can be a great cardio workout that is also great for mobilising the pelvis and spine.3. The Squat: The name says it all. This is a good way to use your thighs, bum and core muscles to build up a sweat. To get the man involved more why not occasionally hook arms underneath your man’s legs and get him to pick you up in the standing position. This will up your heart rate, work up a sweat and the deep penetration will also maximise pleasure.4. Doggy style: If anyone has ever watched American Psycho, you’ll remember the steamy scene involving this position. For the woman, pelvic floor and core muscles can be easier activated. For the man this position will tighten up the abs, raise the heart rate and increase back mobility.Photo Credit: Getty
