It is fair to assume that Exercise improves erection quality.
Many studies have demonstrated that erectile dysfunction can be successfully treated with exercise - therefore the lesser problem of erection quality should respond really well.
Erectile Dysfunction is the inability to gain or maintain an erection for satisfactory sexual intercourse, whereas erection quality is an erection that is not quite what it once was.
The following looks at one study to see how we can improve
erection quality with exercise - to establish if it is the type of
exercise carried out, or the duration of the programme that gives the results.
Exercise is proven to help erectile dysfunction caused as a result of poor blood flow from atherosclerosis (arteries becoming clogged).
Research tends to focus upon participants that have erectile dysfunction due to cardiovascular disease and the resulting poor blood flow to the penis. Yet there are many other factors that cause erectile dysfunction. Exercise helps virtually all body processes - it is not just limited to the blood vessels. Therefore some of the many other causes of erectile dysfunction may be helped both directly and indirectly as a result of exercise.
One study that showed significant increase in erection quality as a result of exercise, used three different exercise types, as opposed the normal single type: aerobic exercise (Exercise that involves working major muscle groups that results in the participant being significantly out of breath, for a period of time.)
The improvements were seen due to exercise affecting processes in the body that control blood flow. Poor erection quality can be as a result of many factors but it is estimated that 40% of erectile dysfunction cases in men aged 50 or over are as a result of their blood vessels disease.
However even though the training only
included men with vascular disease – many factors effect erection
quality. Depression is known to cause erection problems and exercise
has been proven to be as effective as anti-depressants for treating
moderate depression. This demonstrates that the exact way that exercise improves erection quality is as a result of many factors. There are so many processes involved with gaining an erection - all supported by different parts of our body. It is known that exercise improves our body in so many ways - causing it to adapt and grow stronger. Parts of the body that contribute to gaining an erections will grow stronger as a result of exercise and so help to directly and indirectly improve erection quality.
With so many different types of exercise it can be difficult to know
what exercise improves erection quality, but the study did not just use
aerobic exercise which can be harder to integrate into a busy life - it
used two others:
Resistance training (Adding resistance in the form of weight or tension to make the muscle work harder) and general exercise exercise were also used in the study.
Combining all three exercise types may be the answer to improving erection quality whatever the cause. Three types of exercise stimulate the body not only in three different ways, but also target three different body systems. This is sure to have every success in treating erection quality no matter what the cause is.
The exercise programme did last for a longer period of time than some others, so whether the good improvements were seen as a result of this extra time, or by combining different types of exercise it is difficult to know. However common sense perhaps tells us it is probably both.
What the studies do not focus upon is the long term effects. It is normally accepted that if the exercise is stopped, the body will gradually revert back to its pre training state – so it is not known how long the effects last for in the absence of exercise. The level of exercise in the study was enough to treat erectile dysfunction. If this is continued then it is fair to assume improvements will also continue to a point. In order to maintain improvements, a lesser amount of exercise may be sufficient.
Exercise is proven to help the body by
directly effecting the processes that control bodily functions.
If all 3 types of exercise are carried out, all body systems will be improved, and the chances are the body process causing erection problems will be targetted and improved.
Exercising in moderation definitely wont do you any harm, so if you want to improve erection quality then this has to be worth a try.
