3 Exercises to Improve Your Sex Life

improve-sex-life

Marathon sex sessions are a great way to spend your Valentine’s Day, or any day for that matter, but nothing will throw a bucket of ice water on your roll in the hay like needing to take a break to shake out a muscle cramp. Sex can be a great way to get your heart rate up, but if you’re sweating and trembling is due more to exhaustion and muscle fatigue rather than desire for your partner, consider working these exercises into your pre-Valentine, -anniversary, -vacation, -just because sweat sessions so you can go all night!

Squats. Deep Squats.

Squats are great for building strength and endurance in the legs, and the lower you go, the more they will come in handy in the bedroom. Not only will squats make you look great from behind, but they will allow you to take over when you’re on top. Be sure to drive through your heels on the upward motion and keep them in contact with the ground at all times — dropping below 90 degrees can be rough on the knees and this will take the pressure off. At the lowest point of each squat, add five pulses. While the ladies in the movies can drop it down low over and over, in high heels nonetheless, most women don’t have the quad strength it takes. Who can really do that in real life? You can, that’s who, so put on a show!

The Body, Diet, and Feud Fueling the Katy Perry Half-time Show

katy-perry-college-gameday

Some of us are excited for the Seahawks to play the Patriots, some of us are excited for the commercials, and some of us are just excited for a free Katy Perry concert! That’s right, Miss California Gurl is performing the half-time show this year, and much anticipation surrounds this headliner. There have been lots of rumors surrounding Perry lately, and here we discuss what we might expect to see at the show — and of course, how she has kept in shape for the big game.

Perry’s half-time body

Perry has tweeted quite a few hilarious pictures of herself lately, though none accurately depict her true form. She and footballer J.J. Watt graced the cover of ESPN Magazine. Perry is looking stunning for her big gig, and it has been reported that she has been on the 5-Factor Diet to stay in top-notch shape for the big game. The 5-Factor Diet is a lifestyle that focuses on small meals and all of the food groups. Seems like Perry has been munching on a classic diet of veggies, whole-grains, and protein, as well as 25 minutes of exercise a day. Perry looks perfect and we are sure her performance will blow us all away.



First Look at the 17 Day Diet Body Breakthrough

body-breakthrough-logo

When the 17 Day Diet debuted in 2010, it became an instant favorite, spending more than 75 weeks at the top of the New York Times best sellers list. When the Breakthrough Edition released in January 2014, it was massively popular. So popular, you chose the 17 Day Diet as the Most Popular Diet of 2014! With that kind of track record, we won’t be surprised when the latest update to the program, Body Breakthrough, becomes a chart topper as well.

Body Breakthrough is the brand-new, comprehensive digital diet program that takes what you already know about the 17 Day Diet and puts it (literally) in the palm of your hand.

The basis of the program is the same as the original. There are four 17-day cycles of the diet program. The first three are designed to help you develop healthy habits and lose weight. The fourth cycle is considered the maintenance phase, and is designed for those who have reached their weight loss goals.

With Body Breakthrough, the cycles are taken off the page and put into your screen for a more interactive experience.

Burn 900 Calories in POUND’s Euphoric New Drumstick Workout

pound-fitness

By Nellie Acevedo for DietsInReview.com

Have you ever gotten bored with doing the same workout, week after week, month after month? *raises hand* I know I have. The repetitive nature of going for a run or to spin class can drive you crazy, and once in a while you want to try something different, something that awakens new muscles while keeping you mentally engaged. That workout is POUND Fitness.

When I walked into the class held at the Carlton in Midtown NYC, I was introduced to the founders of Pound Fitness — Kirsten Potenza and Christina Peerenboom. I was handed two Ripstix™ (light weighted drumsticks) to “rock out while I workout.”

The founders graciously took the time to get to know us and share background on how POUND Fitness started. Kirsten and Christina were both tired of the group fitness scene, often feeling like it was competitive and stiff. As drummers they realized that several muscle groups — including the core — are activated when there is the motion of beating the drums on a drum set.

In their own words: “POUND is a full-body workout that combines cardio, conditioning, and core work with the excitement and euphoria of drumming.”
