It has been demonstrated that physical exercise increases erection quality and is important factor in treating erection problems. Find out below what exercise you can do to help improve your erection.
Exercise has been proven to help treat erectile dysfunction, yet specialists and urologists often do not address the fact that lifestyle is an important factor in helping erection quality. Studies have shown that men who are put on an exercise program of either interval training or any form of aerobic training see an improvement in erection quality, compared to men that did not participate in an exercise program.
Exercise increases the amount of certain chemicals such as Nitric Oxide and produces changes in some hormones and there receptors. During exercise there is a body warming effect that can help to relax the arteries, which is just what an an erection needs – maximum inflow of blood and restricted outflow. Continued training gives a prolonged effect.
The longer term effects also include reduced inflammation - helping to keep the arteries clearer. Inflammation is a factor in atherosclerosis (furring up of the artery walls) which in time reduces the all important blood flow to the penis.
Exercise has been proven to help treat erectile dysfunction which is great news for anyone with any erection problems or concerns. If it is proven to treat erectile dysfunction then it can definitely help increase erection quality.
The Research A meta analysis study finding exercise increases erection quality
The type of exercise is very individual, firstly it needs to be something that you can enjoy or at least tolerate – as you will have to do it for ever if results are to last.
The exercise needs to stress your body enough so that you are out of breath and can not hold a conversation due to the exertion needed. For some people this may be a brisk walk, for others cycling or running. Even digging the garden or doing the housework counts – absolutely anything that will make you out of breath. This will then provide the stimulus for your body to adapt and meet the demands you are placing upon it.
If you are not use to exercising, have any health conditions or there are any doubts then it is recommended that you ask your doctor about your suitability to exercise.
Interval Training has been proven to work. This involves a work phase and a relaxation phase. What will work best for you may take some experimentation. For example the work phase could be for 1 minute which would involve you carrying out the exercise at a quick pace. The relaxation phase could be for 2 minutes which involves you carrying out the exercise at a reduced rate to enable your body to gradually recover before the next work phase. A cycle of 5 work / relaxation phases may be a good starting point.
Each time your body is stressed it will receive the signal to adapt. 1 work phase = 1 signal. 5 work phases = 5 signals and therefore quicker results. This is the main reason why interval training as an exercise increases erection quality so effectively and relatively quickly - in as little as 8 weeks.
If you are doing something to make you
out of breath, even for a short period of time, then that will be
beneficial. The more you do, the more will the results be, so do
whatever fits in with your lifestyle. You don't have to devote time
to it – try incorporating it into your everyday life – walking
quicker to work or even taking the stairs - walking / running up
them will count as one interval. Slot it into your everyday life and
it will become a habit.
Knowing that you can have a better, stronger erection from exercise has to be a great motivator for many to do just that bit more.
Every morning remind yourself that exercise increases erection quality, and think about how you can slot it into the day ahead of you.
