Being fit and in shape is extremely good for your health, but that is not the only thing that it bolsters. Exercising can help you perform better in bed too.

That being said, if you do not have the time to hit the gym everyday, here are some exercises you can try to help you last longer in bed.
A very common exercise, a push-up works out most of the muscles in your upper body. Not only will this help you get those toned arms, chest and back but it will also give you that much needed strength while having sex, especially in the missionary or the standing sex position. What's more, it will also give you the strength to sweep your lady love off her feet for a hot and steamy quickie. You can learn how to do a push-up the right way.
2. Abdominal crunches

Keeping your back straight, hold this position for as long as possible.
