Get toned and ready to moan with these simple but smokin’ hot pilates poses
So busy you missed the pilates bandwagon? You’ve probably guessed that your core’s missing out – but your sex life is too. Many of the key pilates poses target the muscles women rely on in bed – our hip flexors, glutes, inner and outer thighs and core.
By strengthening these zones, pilates enhances your endurance, stability and flexibility, all of which help to control your body so you can find and maintain the positions that feel best, says pilates instructor Marie Monahan. Like Kegels, these moves engage and strengthen your pelvic floor, which improve the frequency and intensity of your orgasm as well as your partner’s satisfaction. Win-win. So perform this workout, created by Monahan, up to three times a week: do 10 reps of each move, going from one exercise to the next without resting. Work up to repeating the routine three times.
