If you would like to improve your performance in the bedroom, then you might want to start exercising regularly. Working out has many health benefits, but it can also do wonders for you between the sheets. 

When you exercise, you look good and feel good. This helps you feel more confident and sexier. 

The adrenaline and endorphins released during exercise are also good for your stamina and mood - which are great for the bedroom.

Here are three workouts you can try to improve your love life.

If you have not exercised in a long time, it is best to take it easy until you build up strength for a more energetic workout. Swimming is a great place to start. A Harvard study found swimming regularly can have a positive effect on your sex life. 

"The swimmers in their sixties reported sex lives comparable to people in the general population in their forties. The swimmers in their forties had sex lives more like those of people in their twenties and thirties," the Washington Post quoted anthropologist Phillip Whitten. 

Strength training 

According to Shape magazine, strength training is one of the best ways to boost your libido. This type of exercise is especially good for men as it can increase testosterone, which boosts your sex drive. 

"We think that this increase in testosterone level is what triggers the higher libido," Dr Mary Claire Haver told the publication


Kegel exercises can improve your sex life in many ways. The pelvic floor muscle exercise helps strengthen your vaginal walls and improve blood circulation to the area, which is important for arousal. Sex therapist, Dr Ruth, says it might improve your sex life but it depends on several issues. She says men might benefit more. 

"The benefit of doing Kegels occurs in the pelvic floor muscle, the one you used when you stopped the flow of urine. Over time it will become stronger. By squeezing that muscle during intercourse, your male partner should feel some added sensation and that might make sex better for him," she told TIME

Dr Ruth adds that the stronger muscle might make it easier for women to contract during orgasm due to increased blood flow to the pelvic area. 

"I also think that because doing Kegels is something that you control it can have a positive psychological effect that in turn will improve your sex life."
