Why your Fitness, endurance and sex stamina are connected?
Hi, I am Elijah, a fitness trainer, endurance athlete, runner, cyclist, and an addict to everything that requires longer stamina and energy.
I’ve trained with some of the best athletes and endurance trainers and continuously seek out ways and techniques to improve stamina.
Interestingly, during my quest of more stamina, I observed some of the techniques that I applied for my sports performance stamina also helped with my stamina in bedroom.
This made me curious and I longed for more of these techniques. This blog of mine gives out tips on how you can improve your overall stamina and fitness and last longer in bed. Below is a quick primer on what really works:-
1). Hormones and Endocrine health:
If you know anything about hormones, you might be knowing that they are definitely in connect with your overall health, energy and stamina. The stress hormone cortisol, motivation hormone dopamine, testosterone, human growth hormone, prolactin are all related to your energy levels and their entire dynamics is far too complex to explain in a single post. But, I’ll put a detailed post in the future explaining all their roles and how they can impact on how long do you last in bed?
Not only are these hormones related to energy and sex stamina, for example testosterone’s role in sports is well documented, they are also related to each other and there is a natural balance of these hormones in their body. If something goes off, your balance might be off and there are consequences on your sexual performance.
For now, you can take this message:-
The easiest way to get the balance of hormones right, in favor of longer lasting sexual stamina, you need herbal hormone manipulators.
These supplements contain compounds that optimize the balance of hormones in your favor if lasting longer in bed is your goal. For example, they contain Withania somnifera, Asparagus Adscendens etc, which work to reduce stress and anxiety thereby increasing serotonin in your brain, which is a crucial hormone that plays a role in ejaculation process.
Unfortunately, Dapoxetine has some side effects and is not easily available, that’s why I like its natural, herbal alternative Prosolution Plus that does the same job.
When optimizing your hormones, another thing to take care of is dopamine-serotonin balance.
Do you know what sex and world cup have in common? Or for that matter, what orgasms, good foods, watching sports and drugs have in common? If you don’t know the answer already – it’s dopamine!
Dopamine stays behind our motivation for…well…everything. This ancient old mechanism is the nature’s way to lead us towards procreation, feeding and all the activities that keep us alive and healthy – it manipulates the brain into finding the necessary survival activities pleasant, so you would keep repeating them.
Whenever you do something that you find pleasant or that your body finds pleasant, your brain releases dopamine.
Besides, having a high dopamine is good for sex as it will not only enhance your pleasure and sexual motivation but it will also help you pleasure your partner which ultimately is a goal in trying to last longer in bed.
Dopamine is also connected to amount of blood flow into the penis, erection hardness and quality, and penis size.
Clinically depressed people, when given dopamine enhancing substances(Mucuna Pruriens) see their sex lives improve not just significantly but miraculously.
But here is a catch, too much dopamine will cause anxiety thereby decreasing the positive effects of serotonin.
That’s why, you don’t just need a dopamine enhancer but a dopamine-serotonin balance modulator .
Other powerful herbal substances that are of importance are the likes of Longfolia, Curculigo orchioides , Tribulus, and Nitric oxide enhancers.
Meditation is a very popular technique and very effective when it comes to lasting longer during sexual intercourse. Meditation itself helps keep the mind and soul relaxed and focused. Meditation promotes a more focused and controlled mind which can actually help in bed.
This helps with the man controlling himself during sex to control ejaculation. People who practice meditation can gain benefits from it not only to last longer in bed, to help them remain more focused in their daily activities such as working, being with family, in sports and competitions and to promote overall happiness.
3). Control Arousal Levels:
Controlling arousal levels may sound like a challenge, but by breathing deep, and maintaining a constant breathing pace, as well as keeping the mind clear (a combination of meditation) will help with preventing premature ejaculation and lasting much longer. Keep the body relaxed and the breathe at a smooth constant pace, sexual pleasure increases. Learn more about breathing techniques.
Self-confidence is very important when it comes to performing in bed. If there is a lack of confidence the body will be tense and quick to ejaculate and get the job over and done with.
It is important to have full confidence while in bed, that way sexual performance will increase, boosting pleasure for both the man and the partner. Keep all past experiences outside in the trash bin and remain in the present. It will help keep the mind focused and relaxed, controlled.
You can also use NLP techniques to boost your self confidence and self-image.
Remaining calm in the midst of intercourse may sound difficult, but it does require practice. It is important to keep the mind calm and clear. Intercourse should not have to be a job, it should be something to enjoy and keep the mind free of any stresses. A clear mind promotes better intercourse.
6). Premature Ejaculation (PE):
Premature ejaculation is often caused from years of poor masturbation habits. It is best to try not to reach the ejaculation too quick. It is important to focus more on the pleasure and less about the climax of the pleasure.
Focus on the build up. By slowly expanding the bodies sexual stimulation, the body will become used to focusing more on the pleasure build up and less demanding for the climax, the climax of course being the orgasm. Keep the mind and body focused on the pleasure and less about the orgasm.
Read why watching Porn and masturbating excessively will mess up your dopamine response and condition your body for quick release.
7). Perineal Muscles (PM):
The Perineal muscle is the muscle that controls ejaculation. It is possible to train these muscles to relax more to help with not reaching the climax as quickly. It is important to keep them relaxed by remaining focused.
By using these techniques and mastering them, it is very possible to dramatically delay ejaculation time and have multiple orgasms.
Lasting longer in bed requires strong mental control and physical control as well. By applying above natural methods and training the mind through natural techniques, such as meditation, it is possible to have longer intercourse, which is more pleasurable for both the man and the partner.
