4 Sex Exercises to Try

By:  


Having a body that's primed for amazing sex has little to do with how great you look naked (though body confidence does boost the bedroom bliss). "It's the smaller muscles you can't see or feel that make the difference," says Jeff Bell, owner of the Bell Fitness Company in New York City.

The key is strengthening the stabilizing muscles in your lower body, pelvis, and core so you can handle any position you get twisted into...and enjoy a more intense finale. Do two or three sets of each move three days a week, and not only will you score a flaunt-worthy body, you'll have way more fun with it too!
