Exercise to enhance your sex life;
Get fit for a Valentine's Day you won't forget!

Both exercise and sex can help relieve stress and burn calories (nothing like multi-tasking, right!).

Here are some tips to get you in good loving shape:
Exercise 3-5x a week. Exercise can help increase your strength, stamina and flexibility - in and out of the bedroom - (see our sexy moves below for ideas). Studies show that improved muscle tone can increase 'sexual gratification' because orgasms depend on multiple muscle activity. Need I say more?

Think Sexy. Feel Sexy. While you're doing those sexy moves, think about how you feel. Check yourself out in the mirror and admire your progress. Focus on your attributes and acknowledge your successes and you'll find that positive energy breeds more success. And there's nothing sexier for you or your partner than feeling good about yourself.

Get enough sleep! The two go hand in hand - a great sex life can lead to better sleep and vice versa. Feeling rested gives you the energy to go the extra mile - whether you're in the gym or with your man.

Finally, remember, for most women feeling sexy starts with the mind. No matter what magic moves I give you, if your head is somewhere else, all that hard work means nothing!

Exercising is a part of putting your needs first so you have more to give to everyone else around you. By taking care of yourself with a healthy lifestyle that includes exercise, you'll become more aware of your muscles and your body - not just how it looks, but also how it feels and moves. Sounds like serious foreplay to me!

Try these three PUSH erotic exercises to help get you and keep you in the mood:

MF'rs 2x12 (for thighs/butt): Start standing, feet about shoulder width apart, bend over at the waist and grab onto your ankles (or as close to your ankles as possible) with your knees slightly bent. Keeping a hold on your ankles, squat down and back into your hips as low as you can without losing your balance. KEEP YOUR HEELS ON THE FLOOR. Then, straighten legs to return to the starting position. Try for two sets of 12 reps.

Modified Dolphins (for abs): Lying on your back, bring the bottoms of your feet together and allow your knees to open to the sides and rest on the floor. With your arms extended overhead, lace your fingers together and let your arms cradle your head for support. Crunch up and lift your shoulder blades off the floor, drawing your belly in as you lift. Lower and repeat for 2 sets of 12 reps.

Supine GM's (for butt/hamstrings/inner and outer thighs): Lie on your back, with knees bent and pressed together, feet flat on the floor. Lift your hips towards the ceiling into a bridge position while keeping your knees together. Holding the bridge, seperate your knees, and then squeeze them back together. Keeping your knees together, lower your hips back down to the floor. Aim for two sets of 15.
