Far from pleasure and health benefits, great sex can also count as a physical exercise. That said, certain sex positions are effective when you burn calories in bed and enjoying yourself while at it!
If you were looking for a way to combine erotic pleasure and at-home workouts; take a look at the most effective calorie-burning sex positions below!
Burn Calories in Bed: 'Butter Churner'!
In this position, the woman is on her back; with her butt lifted in the air and her legs resting on your shoulders. While squatting and working on your thrusts from above, this position will help you burn 211 calories in half-an-hour. For comparison, you will burn the same amount of calories if swimming for 30 minutes…but sex is much more fun, isn’t it?
The position is similar to doggy style and will get you sweating in no time. If you don’t want to rest on your knees, you can always take it up a notch and position yourself in a squat. Incredibly, the position will help you burn around 167 calories in 30 minutes.
Burn Calories in Bed: Stand and Lift!
If you want to do a true workout and try something new at the same time; stand up and lift your partner in your arms. Penetrating standing up requires more strength and endurance on your part; but when done right, it will help you burn staggering 198 calories.
Doggy style is not just a favorite position for many men, but it is also an effective calorie burner. Even though you are on your knees, 30 minutes of doggy will help you waste around 182 calories; and enjoy yourself while at it, too!
Burn Calories in Bed: Lotus!
Have a seat on your bed with your knees open and your feet pressed together. Your partner should come on top and allow you to lift her in rhythmic motions. Not only do you get to be in control of your pleasure; but you will also manage to burn around 148 calories in just 30 minutes. If keeping your feet together feels uncomfortable; feel free to extend one leg in front of you and use your foot to push yourself off the bed.
To do the Eagle position, have your partner lay on her back and spread her legs to each side; possibly supporting them on your shoulders. You can do your thrusts just as in missionary but deeper. Amazingly, the position will help you spend around 145 calories in just half-an-hour.
