Sex is an important part of every couple’s life and that’s exactly why it is important to maintain an active sex life. You can actually make it better by incorporating certain exercises in your workout routine.
Try out the following exercises to crank up the heat in your bedroom and have better sex:

1. Glute bridges
Lie down on the floor, bend your knees with the heels on the floor, and hands placed on the side. Lift your hips off the floor. Keep lifting till your knees, hips, and shoulders form a straight line. 20 repetitions of these on a regular basis will help strengthen your pelvic muscles.

2. Standing hip thrust
Stand straight with your feet apart. Next, place one foot forward and the other behind. Bend your knees slightly and make sure your entire body is facing forward. Push your pelvis forward gently till you feel a very mild stretch in your hips. Hold the stretch for 30 seconds, then reverse the leg positions and repeat. Even though it might not seem like a hectic exercise, remember not to overdo it because you could end up hurting your hip. Better thrusts will give you better orgasms, so start hip-thrusting your way into working out!

3. Cossack squats or side-to-side lunges
Stand with your feet facing forward and about twice shoulder-width apart. Clasp your hands and interlock your fingers in front of your chest. Now, bend your right knee as you shift your body weight over to your right leg and push your hips backward as you lower your body. As your hip drops, make sure your upper body isn’t bending forward and is straight. Your lower right leg should remain nearly perpendicular to the floor and you can ensure that by making sure the edge of your knee doesn’t cross the tip of your toe.

Let your left foot remain flat on the floor. Get back to your central position with the same movement, only reversed. Repeat the same on the left side. 10 to 20 repetitions of these lunges gains you the kind of flexibility you need to get into any position.

4. Hinge
Get on your knees. Do not sit and keep your body in a straight vertical line from the knee and above. Rest your weight on your heels. Your knees bend must form a 90-degree angle. Make sure your head and spine are in line with your thighs, and your hands placed on the sides as you slowly lean back a few inches. Hold that position for 3 to 5 seconds. Come back to the straight position with the same movement gradually. Do 5 to 10 repetitions to learn how to angle your back in just the right way to make it much more convenient for your partner to stimulate your clitoris and your G-spot and thus enable you to have a better orgasms.

5. Sumo squats
Just 10 to 12 reps of these will help you strengthen your vaginal muscles. Stand with your feet facing forward and about twice shoulder-width apart. You could keep your hands clasped in front of your chest or just rest them on your hips. Slowly bend your knees as you go down until your thighs are parallel to the floor.

6. Lower back flexion
Lie flat on the floor while facing the ceiling. With your hands on the sides, bend your knees and keep your feet flat on the ground. Draw your knees up to your chest and hug them. Pull both your knees towards your chest while gently keeping your back flat on the floor at all times. Feel the stretch and stay in the position for 3 to 5 seconds. Repeat this around 10 times. This will give you a stronger back and make you experience pure pleasure since your lower back muscles are a pool of nerve endings.
