Erectile Dysfunction Exercises – Working Out for Better Performance

by Cheryl Powers

Men with erectile dysfunction will try anything to overcome their condition. Talking to a doctor is often the hardest step to make but should truly be one of the first. While there are a number of treatments available including several that are highly effective, improving your erectile dysfunction can involve a number of additional steps to go along with medication or other treatment. Erectile dysfunction exercises can help you overcome the problem and improve your ED with or without the addition of other treatments such as prescription medications. Here’s a look at some of the best exercises you can try to help your condition.

Erectile Dysfunction Exercises

First, it’s worth mentioning that you can actually improve your erectile dysfunction through traditional exercise, especially aerobic exercise which works to improve blood flow. Not only will it help your erectile dysfunction, but it will also boost your overall health and well-being as well. That said, there are also a number of erectile dysfunction exercises that focus specifically on the problem. Most commonly they’re referred to as kegel exercises or pelvic floor exercises. Some studies found that forty percent of men with recurring ED returned to regular erections after three to six months of these exercises.

The actual pelvic floor erectile dysfunction exercises are essentially the process of clenching the anus and tightening the urethra muscles, and a therapist is usually the best person to learn from although some videos may exist online that you can use to guide you. Perform the exercises in sets of ten at least four times a day, holding the tightening for at least ten seconds at a time. These basic exercises focus on the muscles that affect erections and can help, but to get the most from them it’s a good idea to combine them into an overall exercise routine.

An example of a good routine of erectile dysfunction exercises that you can try includes the kegel exercises followed by at least one hour of cardio exercise every day. Then, leg lifts done while lying on your back should be followed up by doing as many squats and as many sit ups as you can manage. Performing these steps daily is the best way to ensure that you get the most from your workouts and start making strides towards normal erections. A doctor should always be visited for help with erectile dysfunction, but even they will likely agree that some exercises will do you a world of good when it comes to ED.
