Most people who use a Pilates Chair use it for reasons such as fitness, weight loss, low-impact rehabilitation, etc. Not me, I started using a Pilates Chair for one simple reason, better sex! Sure, while using the chair I’m burning calories and strengthening muscles, but my primary goal was to become a Bull in the sheets, it’s just that simple. What can I say, at age 55, I need all the help I can get.
So what does a Pilates Chair have to do with better Sex?
Have you ever heard of the Pubococcygeus muscle? Don’t worry, neither had I. The pubococcygeus muscle or PC muscle is a hammock like muscle found in both sexes that stretches from the pubic bone to the tailbone forming the floor of the pelvic cavity. Now that you know what and where it’s located, it’s important to know when you’ve used it.
How many of you have needed to pee really badly, but were forced to hold it for whatever reason? The first 5-10 minutes is somewhat manageable, but after about 30 minutes things start to go south rather quickly, literally! You guessed it, the clenching feeling from having to hold the urge to “go” comes from the PC muscle.
Here’s where it gets interesting. Very few men, or woman for that matter, know that a well exercised PC muscle can do wonders for a man’s “woody”. In fact, the PC is the most significant muscle regarding a man’s sexual health and performance. It controls the strength and angle of the erection and the intensity of orgasms – pretty import wouldn’t you agree?
Here’s how it works
Now that you know the Importance of the PC muscle, you’re ready to strengthen it with an exercise referred to as “PC pull-ups”. While sitting on the Pilates Chair, slowly clench your PC as you exhale, hold the contraction, and then slowly relax the muscle as you inhale. Make sure you’re squeezing your PC and not just clenching your sphincter.
Get in a routine
As with any new exercise, start slow and work your way up, say, two sets of 10 reps. Do this every other day and increase by one set a week for an entire month. In the beginning you might experience muscle soreness, but that will go away as you strengthen the muscle.
After several weeks of this exercise, you will notice stronger erections and an increase in the force of your ejaculation. Who knows, with a healthy PC muscle, you might even be able to raise and lower a towel hanging from your erect penis. If that’s the case, I encourage that you save this trick for at least the second date.
