If you think having regular sex might leave you exhausted in the gym, you have another thought coming. The two activities are mutually exclusive and you can enjoy both. Working out regularly is good for your general well-being.



A healthy body is a pre-requisite for a healthy mind. Involving in regular exercise will definitely help you stay fitter and develop a good physique. There are no adverse effects on your sex life. Good intercourse is akin to a healthy workout in the gym. Both can definitely go hand-in-hand. Avoid use of steroids or excess supplements for body-building as they are known to have long-term adverse effects. A healthy sex life with a steady partner has no adverse effects on working out.
