SEXERCISE – how many calories do you torch while doing “the deed”?
On average, a 150-lb person burns 72 calories from the moment the physical act of intercourse ensues until the grand finale. Add 15 minutes of foreplay and you will zap another 25 calories. If spending quality time amongst grunting muscle heads and cold steel is a daunting task, take your sexcapades to the next level and add to your traditional workout.
Changing positions throughout intercourse can effectively build muscle and burn calories at the same time. Standing, “crouching tiger”, “the long shot” and a host of other positions featured in the Blazing Hot Sex Positions Guide can take the place of monotonous exercises and still target your muscle groups. Spend a few minutes in the “the deep G” position to firm your inner thighs and gain some strength in your core stabilization framework.
If you really want to trade the gym for the more mattress mambo time, consider the latest products on the market to really rev up the burn. A “sexercise” ball, which is much like the large stability balls, can increase your calorie burn and force you to engage a whole other set of muscle groups!
