Erectile dysfunction has many causes.  Stress, certain medications, even
genetics can play a role in causing ED.  But what many men do not
know is that the chief cause of erectile dysfunction is your overall
health.

What?  Erectile dysfunction, especially in men over 30, is actually a
symptom of general cardiovascular dysfunction.  In fact,
studies have
shown that men who have heart disease or heart attacks suffer
disproportionately from ED.

The connection is simple.  Arteries are pipes. The pipes that feed your
body with life-giving blood also make your penis stiff.  Erections are
produced when enough blood fills the pipes leading to your penis.  

Think of it like a garden hose.  Run enough water through at a high
enough pressure and the hose gets stiff.  So, having ED is a serious
problem.  It means that not enough blood is reaching your groin.  

ED is a red flag which should tell you to walk—no, run—to your doctor
to have your arteries and heart checked.  Let’s say it again:  ED is a red
flag for heart disease. It may be the only warning you get.

So, what’s good for the penis, is good for the body. And vice versa:
What’s good for the body is good for the penis.

Before we get to the exercises that will deliver the most blood supply to
your groin most effectively, let’s make sure we’re on the same page.

What Is Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?

Erectile dysfunction, meaning the partial or total inability to produce an
erection or to sustain an erection hard enough or for a long enough
time to complete intercourse. It can be caused by stress, anxiety over
performance, by medications, by injury to the penis and most often, by
cardiovascular impairment.  It is this last cause that is so preventable.
This type of
ED can be helped with proper diet. This ED can be helped
with exercise.

Which Exercises Are Best to Improve Erections?

1. Yoga. Why does yoga improve erectile performance?  How can yoga
improve erections? Yoga can improve erectile performance in two
ways. First, it can relax your entire body, helping to relieve the stress
that may be contributing to erectile dysfunction. Second, yoga poses,
developed over many centuries, offer superior cardiovascular
conditioning.  Every workout should begin with a warm up and stretch.
Warm up the muscles by walking 15 minutes. Move your arms in circles
gently. Do a few easy side bends. Do a few easy knee bends to wake up
your quads. The problem with yoga for most guys is that it's just too
Kung Fu. That's not the kind of yoga we mean. Let's break it down.































2. The Warrior Pose.  Think of surfing.  Think of surfers. You know
how they stretch out, balancing on the board, arms out to keep their
balance, legs out to balance both ends of the board. What they are
doing is working three sets of muscles: legs, core abs, and back. That
Surf pose is also what you do when you do the yoga pose called the
Warrior Pose.   There is a picture of the warrior pose to the right.  So,
get on an imaginary surf board. Put one foot in front of the other.
Stretch out your arms and dip your knees to catch the waves.  

3. The Power Pose. Research from Professor Amy Cuddy of Harvard
Business School has discovered that certain poses boost testosterone
and lower stress. People who practice these "power poses" for just 2
minutes a day experienced 20% increases in testosterone immediately
after completing the poses.

Sounds like science fiction? No, it's real, and was verified by Professor
Cuddy's measurements of the testosterone levels of participants.
Moreover, these power poses also drop levels of the stress hormone
cortisol by 25%. Cortisol makes you focus on negative events and
makes you risk-averse.

What are the power poses? There are 3.

  • Standing with your legs apart and your hands on your hips. You
    may remember that this is the classic "Superman" pose.

  • Standing with your arms above your head. I call this the "X Man"
    pose because your whole body looks like a Big X.

  • Sitting with your hands behind your head with your legs wide
    open.

power poses and other tips to raise testosterone
naturally.)

3. Plank.  The plank is an exercise that strengthens your abs, your core.
As your core muscles improve, they become more muscular and toned.
As a result, these muscles start to demand more blood supply.
Improved blood supply to your core also improves blood supply to
your groin because the arteries that supply your ab core also lead to
your groin.

The plank is a superior exercise for developing core strength. It is
better than crunches for developing a strong core.  You are naturally
doing a plank if you are having sex from the missionary position
without resting on your woman.

There are pictures of the plank pose to the right.

4. Kegel Exercises.  The muscle that helps you to stop urinating is also
the muscle which can help you control ejaculation. If you are a
premature ejaculator, try this exercise. Squeeze the "hold your water"
muscle for 30 seconds. Release. Squeeze for another 30 seconds.
Release. Repeat 5 times each day, holding your water for at least 30
seconds. You'll find that, over time, you will be able to last longer in
bed.

5. Phase I -Cardiovascular Starter Program. Every day should include
some cardiovascular exercise. The minimum is 45 minutes to an hour to
even begin cardiovascular conditioning. Consider this the minimum
down payment on erectile health.  By cardiovascular, we mean
exercises that make you sweat and keep you sweating. You should feel
your body warm up.  If you are out of shape, start slowly, walk long
enough to feel your self getting warmer. Rest. Walk farther the next
day.

  • Walk-45 minutes to an hour
  • Run or jog- 45 minutes

6. Phase II. If you are able to walk for an hour without strain or
getting winded, then add more cardiovascular.

  • Long Walk -90 minutes every other day (Monday, Wednesday,
    Friday)


7.   Phase III. Kick boxing.  Kick-boxing is a great exercise for overall
cardiovascular  health, flexibility and erectile function. It strengthens
your core, which are the six-pack muscles that literally wrap around
your waist like a back brace, keeping your internal organs in place and
supporting your back, preventing injury.  Here is a wonderful
Six-Pack
workout  with demonstration pictures for working your core.

7.        Cool Down. You must cool down. No exceptions. You must never
work your body up to a lather, then just collapse into a chair.  There’s
a reason that horses are jogged around the track after a race. You
have to ease the heart down to a soft landing. Stopping suddenly is like
a crash.  It stresses your cardiovascular system.  To cool down, you
should walk easy for about 15 minutes, getting slower.  Then stretch.
