There is no denying the fact that too little or too much exercise can break a perfectly planned first date. You may not look like Brad Pitt or have Channing Tatum’s powerful ABS but you definitely can do anything to look hot and sizzling to make your date swoon and encourage one major hook up. You need to remember that first impressions last and on a first date, it could sometimes take forever. When you have your eye on that quick romp under the sheets, it is only fitting that you put your adrenaline and libido into action. Through this three power exercise that combine intense Cardio training and weights, you can develop more than just a perfectly buffed body but also the stamina to make it through a grueling first date.
Leg Raises for YoursABS and Strength
The lower abdominal muscles benefit largely from hanging leg raises. Yes, the keyword is “lower muscles”and that include your ABS, thighs and your baby down there. Being ready for that possibility of straddling someone on your first date in the backseat of your car or in unlikely places that you can think of requiring stamina and strength.
Leg raises can be done in more ways than one. You can do it lying on a floor, hanging upon a chin-up bar or, perhaps, on a raised curved bar. Repeated performance of any or a combination of these legs raises can help develop your abdominal and core muscles, add more strength on your grip and increased flexibility and agility on your hip flexors. To some, this has also been known to develop a certain kind of “manliness” on your gait.
Bonus Tip: To make it even more effective, perform your leg raise slowly and repetitively on a daily basis. Beginners may find these moves challenging for the first time but with a little patience and perseverance, you can have rock hard ABS and the agility on-the-ready to fire up any date night.
Plank for Stabilization and Increased Vigor
When it comes to isometric training, stabilization through plank exercises can help work outthe entire abdominal region, upper and lower body, the neck muscles, and entire posterior muscle groups of your body. Take note that this one is great for your “transverse and rectus abdominis,” the muscle group responsible for your overall stability and balance. There are two ways to do the plank namely, planking on the floor (with a mat of course) and on a stability ball.
Planking nowadays seems to be regarded as fun with young guns but this is actually an important reconditioning exercise usually done by pro athletes recuperating from injury. This helps one get past plateaus in strength training as well as improve the transfer of energy between your lower and upper body for a much improved and stabilized physique and general well-being. Aside from strength and flexibility, it can also greatly affect your appearance through an improved posture. Remember our “gait theory”? This one is a killer move that stabilizes your spine and hips, ergo, your posture.
Another important aspect in plank exercises is its effect on men’s mental health. Come on, accept the fact that most of us burn our midnight candles on rigorous work deadlines. Prolonged sitting even on an ergonomic chair can stiffen the body, increase stress and suppress anxiety. Getting on that plank routine before hitting the sack is a good move to improve your mood and disposition – an important aspect when you want to have more than just a first date.
Cardio for Increased Libido and Staying Power
Of course, libido is an important thing especially when you have plans that go beyond clinking wine glasses and exchanging funny stories. In this day and age, you cannot be too slow not to get at least an invitation for a cup of coffee in her place. From there, it can lead to everywhere.
Running, cycling, kickboxing, swimming and other forms of interval training are the best types of Cardio program for men. Most men (and so do I) prefer interval trainings because of its intensity. It does not only improve your endurance but also kick-starts your overall physique to burn more calories and develop musculature that women find irresistible.
Be reminded though to do cardiovascular training on a regular basis. All you need to do is allot a thirty-minute per day interval training workout. Doing this on a weekly basis will definitely yield results in time for that circled date on your sex calendar.
No man would want to look disheveled on a first date. As much as possible, we want to look our best regardless if it is a first or a second or a regular date. We all want to look attractive and irresistible so we can have that post-date romp. Through these exercises, consumption of healthy food and some good grooming, every girl you date will find you mouth-watering with or without your shirt — and pants, too.
