Can lack of exercise cause erectile dysfunction? Part 1

An erectile dysfunction condition is usually associated with a low libido when you somehow lose your sex drive or urge to engage in sexual activity. The situation usually arises when the body has remained stationary for a long time and the blood flow slackens to a trickle instead of a surging tide. It’s during these times that many people ask the question: Can lack of exercise cause erectile dysfunction? The answer of course is Yes, it does!

Remember these factors when exercising

It’s normal that a person will only be able to perform a maximum of three or four exercises in a single session. You should nevertheless strive to build your strength by practicing your exercises on a daily basis so that erectile dysfunction will not affect your sex life.

With time you should be able to repeat your exercises to 10 repetitions of each exercise daily. This will maintain a strong blood flow throughout your body and enable you to achieve and maintain erections.

Other ED exercises

Some people find aerobic exercises to be of benefit to them in connection with erectile dysfunction. If you find yourself so inclined, here are some examples in which you can involve yourself:

  • Boxing
  • Rowing
  • Running

The main reason is of course that when you exercise, you can maintain a strong circulation of blood throughout your body but more important, a strong bloodflow will definitely induce strong erections for enjoying a satisfying sex life.

Bloodflow in your body becomes sluggish perhaps because your blood contains large amounts of fat and sugar or your blood vessels have become clogged up with plague making it difficult for you to have erections. However, exercising can restore a strong bloodflow.

Exercising can be done even if you’ve never exercised very much in your life or even if you are obese and health experts believe that it’s never too late to start exercising to get that strong and sustained flow of blood through your body.

How can exercising help your condition?

For starters, exercise can rejuvenate your low libido and also improve your erectile dysfunction. We’ve all been brought up with the notion that exercising is a normal part of our lives which we should find time to do and enjoy.

However, parents may have done what many other parents didn’t do to tell us that exercising also plays a very important role in our sex life.

Nevertheless, health gurus strongly believe exercising can greatly improve your ebbing libido and make your penis stand hard and ready for sexual activity. Some even go so far as to say that it is the best panacea for erectile dysfunction. The alternative of course is that a lack of exercise is most likely to cause ED and low libido.
