Fitness experts have revealed the fitness credentials of different sex positions and which burn the most calories.
Research conducted by 24/7 Fitness, explored the link between sex and fitness, as well as analysing 11 different sexual positions to calculate the potential calories burned during a 30-minute session.
And it seems that position really does matter when it comes to ‘sex-ercise’ – with the standing position burning off an impressive 343 calories between both partners.
However, it’s a different story for the spooning position, which sees partners shed a combined total of just 56 calories.
‘The link between sex and fitness is a bit of a chicken and egg situation. Improved fitness improves your sex life and regular sex improves your workouts,’ said Gary Lockwood, CEO at 24/7 Fitness.
‘Regular exercise and a good diet will do wonders for your self-confidence. Look good, feel good! It regulates your hormones and releases lots of lovely endorphins which reduce stress levels. This in turn enhances your libido and your overall sexuality.’
