Exercises to Improve an Erection

Difficulties with getting and keeping an erection happen to the bulk of men of different age at some stage of their life. This problem may be provoked by various factors, either momentary (e.g. trauma, serious stress) or evolved during some period of time (e.g. atherosclerosis, obesity).

No matter what has become the crucial factor of erectile dysfunction, this condition may be managed and significantly improved thanks to the special exercises. They help to enhance the supply of blood to the pelvic organs and strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor. A simultaneous impact on both mechanisms can help to fully or partially restore the ability to get an erection without using the pills.

How to do the exercises?

First of all, you have to find and feel the muscles you are going to work on. To do this, you should try to hold the stream of the urine. The muscle area you use to perform this action is the one you need to train.

You’ll need no additional equipment to train the pelvic floor muscles. Just strain and relax the muscles for at least 10-20 times three times a day. Try to hold the muscles strained for three seconds and then keep them in a relaxed condition during the same period of time.

Of course, the effect won’t be seen at once. You’ll need at least two weeks of regular exercises to notice the result.

In the study conducted in one of the British universities, 40% of the participants succeeded in complete recovery from the erectile dysfunction. Whereas 33% could significantly improve their ability to get and keep an erection.

What else can help to deal with ED?

Because erectile dysfunction may result from a number of underlying health condition (like heart disease, obesity, hypertension), it is important to keep to a healthy way of life. Daily aerobic exercises, for example, can improve the flow of blood to the penile area. Besides, they have a positive impact on the oxygenation of blood and consequently all the other body cells. Aerobic workouts can better the condition of your cardiovascular system, lower your blood pressure, and promote weight loss.

Set the right goals, reach them, and you’ll have no troubles in bed.
