Looking to spice things up in the bedroom just in time for Valentine’s Day? Check out these three barre exercises that can make a big difference in your sex life. They will stretch and strengthen in all the right places!
3 Exercises to Spice Up This Valentine's Day
1. Second Position
Stand with your feet wider than your hips and toes turned out to the corners of the room. Bend your knees as low as you can without letting your shoulders collapse forward or your tailbone stick out. Begin to dip one inch down and lift one inch up and feel the weight in your heels with light toes. With each lift, exhale and feel the area between the sits bones and pubic bone pull together and upwards. This is the pelvic floor, the most important muscle to control and extend your orgasm.
2. Thigh Dance
Kneel on both knees and hover your hips over your heels. Lift your hips up an inch as you curl your pelvis under. Lower your hips an inch as you release back to the starting position. This exercise is excellent for mobilizing the pelvis for rhythmic movement in the bedroom. Not to mention the quad strength you will gain to assist you in holding those tricky positions longer.
3. Wide Bridge
Lay on you back with your knees bent and feet wider than your hips. Allow your knees to rotate open so that your knees track over your toes. Dig your heels into the floor and lift your toes towards the ceiling. Begin to lift and lower your hips. This exercise is great for opening the hips and strengthening the glutes so that you are able to thrust comfortably.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
