There are many kinds of different workouts to do to improve some aspects of our body and health. They are classified in two major groups regarding the benefits they grant us and our objective of fitness.
On the one hand, there are workout routines which are aimed to build muscle mass and gain weight. On the other hand, there are other workout routines designed to burn calories, strengthen our heart, increase our lung capacity or stimulate our circulatory system. The objectives of these workouts will be achieved through daily cardiovascular exercise in most cases.
Cardiovascular exercise is also known as aerobic exercise and it has many benefits for our health. Doing 20 minutes of exercise per day is enough to keep healthy and you will start burning calories right after the first minutes of non-stop intense cardio exercise. There are many examples of cardiovascular exercise you can do at a gym or by your own like walking, dancing, biking, jogging and many others.
Going jogging, biking or whatever cardiovascular exercise is perfectly healthy, but there is one which is as healthy and funnier to practice than the rest we have already mentioned. Can you guess what cardio exercise we are referring to? We will give you a clue: it is not a sport exactly. Still nothing? Well, let us introduce you to the funniest cardio exercise: sex!
Having sex is simply the perfect exercise, it has many advantages over the others. One of those advantages is that you keep healthy at the same time you are having fun. In addition, you don’t have to go to a certain place like a gym to practice it, on the contrary the rightest place to have sex is obviously your home or your partner’s. In case you decide to have it in couple, sex will be a great way of strengthening your relationship and getting to know each other better.
Do you know how many calories do you burn during 20 minutes of sex? You can burn up to 500 calories. However, the time of sex isn’t the only factor determining the calories you burn. There are other factors which determine it like the position or even the foreplay. Only a couple of minutes of kissing and caressing your partner can make you burn 50 calories approximately. Foreplay is kind of a warm up that will also help you to reach more intense orgasms.
So, jogging will make you feel healthier, but sex will help you to be happier! What cardio exercise would you choose?
