The benefits of sex are well known. In addition to acting as an antidepressant, fighting migraines, improving sleep and reducing the risk of cancer, sex helps to maintain good health. And for those who want to exercise and build muscle during sex, here are 5 positions that are as effective as a gym session.

Positions that work the whole body

Cradle modified

The modified cradle position allows the person penetrating to mobilise and build up their whole body and the one being penetrated to work on their balance and flexibility. To perform this position, the one penetrating must stand with the person being penetrated’s back to them. They must lift the other with the strength of their arms while the other holds their knees bent with their hands so that they are sitting up.

The antelope

To build up thighs, arms, abs and buttocks, the antelope is the ideal sex position for all genders. Once again, the one penetrating must stand up and lift the one being penetrated. This time the one being penetrated is standing in front of the penetrator, wrapping their arms around the penetrator's neck and their thighs around the penetrator’s pelvis.

Positions that target a part of the body

The Thai/Javanese jackhammer and wheelbarrow

Like this but the one penetrating is standing up

In this position, the one penetrating works primarily on their posture, while the one being penetrated works on their upper body. This position requires the one being penetrated to do a handstand in front of the penetrator, who is standing. The penetrator has to put one of the other’s legs on their shoulder while the one being penetrated leans on their triceps and trapezius.

The mountain or downward dog

This position allows the one being penetrated to build up their arms and back and the penetrator to work on their buttocks. The mountain or downward dog is not that complicated to perform. The one being penetrated should put their hands and feet on the floor and lift their buttocks up in the air, forming a mountain. The penetrator should stand and hold the other from behind like doggy style, but standing up.

The plough

The plough position is used to build up the muscles of the buttocks for the person penetrating and to work on the muscles of the back for the one being penetrated. To perform it, the one being penetrated must lie on their back with their buttocks on the edge of the bed. They must keep their legs and back in an elevated position while the penetrator places themself between the other’s thighs.
