Sex as a form of cardio?

Postby Oggy on Wed Sep 16, 2009 4:26 pm

I find doing cardio at the gym to be really boring and can never be really bothered unlike weight training which i really enjoy. I do enjoy cycling butdo don't have my bike here with me at my girlfriends. I was meant to be going to the gym for an hours cardio today but opted for sex instead as i didn't have time for both. The problem is this happens more than not and was thinking that due to the amount of sweating that an hours sex sesssion has would sex maybe be as effective at buring fat as an hour on the x trainer?

Yes, but an hour's steady state fucking is nowhere near as good as 15 minutes of HIIT smashing for fat loss.

I'd suggest 30s of max effort, followed by 60s of recovery. I'm sure if you told her what you were doing she'd be more than happy to lick off her own juices between bouts.

^LMAO! It was her idea actually and she sucks her own juices off me before. I sweat loads though, much more than any normal cardio at the gym, maybe I do the HIIT pace naturally!

Was just asking because I felt guilty for not going to the gym, we're still acting like we just met eachother so we can't get enough time together. Looking fowared to settling down back to a normal routine.

Sounds like you have a keeper there....Calories burnt in sex. Not sure how accurate it is tho! :lol:

Lol, damn it if I only had a teensy-weensy, I'd be under 10% body fat months ago!

I thought there would be a lot more calories burned during sex though, I was thinking more like 100 cals per 10 minutes as a lot of heat is being generated.

And yes I think she is a keeper, first lady I've met that wants sex more than me. Older ladies rock! Do all women turn into sex fiends at their pre menopausal state?

Women reach their sexual peak mid-late 30s. Apparently their sexdrive at that age is comparable to teenage guys.

I think if you are more creative you'll burn more. I reckon you'll burn more with 20mins of adventurous sex than an hour of long slow loving. :D

I posted a routine in KP's training journal saying that 10s hard on* with 45s off works well for burning fat.

Not sure if it's possible to go "all out" for 10s, but if you try may I suggest some lube :P

* Pun intended

Dont think I need to, she ran off with a younger man at 47! My lady is 45 so yeah it's a bit of a freaky turn on.

But yeah, I've heard that it's quite common for women to do this mid age.

Sounds good. I'd recommend a waterbased lube like astroglide

She must have been suppressing her sex drive for all her 14 years of marage then, whoohoo!

Unless you're doing some serious intervals or something, an hour worth of crosstrainer only burns off 5-800 on a good day.
