How to Get Stronger Erections
Since few natural sites discuss this topic, it’s time this subject actually gets talked about without the profit-driven interests from pharmaceutical companies.
Countless pills, supplements, and devices promise to give men stronger erections. Most of these focus on stimulating testosterone, the most important components to the male sex drive.
In The Natural Testosterone Plan: For Sexual Health and Energy, Stephen Harrod Buhner states that finding ways to naturally stimulate testosterone growth is better than other supplements available.
Not only is it better, but it is actually safer as many products which promise stronger erections come with a myriad of negative side effects.
Fortunately for you, testosterone levels can be increased through incorporating the following positive lifestyle changes.
How to get stronger erections:
Reach and Maintain a Healthy Body Weight
It can’t be stressed enough how important this suggestion is to decreasing estrogen (the erection buzz-kill hormone) levels. Decreases in muscle mass lead to increases in estrogen levels. According to The Ten Ways to Reduce Estrogen in Men, weight gain with corresponding muscle loss can cause increases in estrogen levels as well.
Unhealthy weight gains and losses result in hormone fluctuations which can suppress testosterone levels in men while at the same time increasing their estrogen levels. This then stimulates fat storage and leads to further problems with obesity.
To deal with this issue, a man needs to reach and maintain a healthy weight. This regimen should ideally include weight lifting and interval training along with a healthy high protein diet low in sugar.
Incorporating Heavy Weight Lifting and Interval Training
Heavy weight lifting and interval training both contribute to increased muscle mass, which leads to stronger productions of testosterone and results in a stronger erection. However, by heavy weight lifting and interval training, I don’t mean mindless exercises that target a single muscle group at a time.
The best kinds of weight lifting exercises are those which require lifting for functional strength. Functional strength revolves around doing activities which you might actually need to do one day such as rolling tires, lifting heavy boxes, flipping tractor tires, climbing ropes, and the like.
Unlike typical weight lifting programs which focus on training single muscle groups in isolation, these exercises incorporate the entire body. This also includes standard body sculpting moves such as military push ups, pulls ups, and the like.
Interval training is another important component of an effective muscle building program. Sometimes known as surge training or blast training, this is a form of training which includes short intense bursts of activity followed by short periods of rest. Typically, a burst lasts for ten seconds or so with a rest period of about thirty seconds. A total session typically lasts for between ten and twenty minutes.
Contrary to popular health magazines, it’s important that you don’t exercise for more than an hour at a time as this creates oxidative stress which increases free radical formation.
Putting together a plan which includes both of these elements can be a little tricky. You can find out more about the functional exercises you can use as well as forms of interval training if you click here.
Regular Servings of Cruciferous Vegetables
Cruciferous vegetables have incredible benefits. The question that most men would rarely think to ask is “how is this going to help me have stronger erections?” After all, broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage are hardly the sexiest vegetables.
But research at the University of Helsinki in Finland found that the compound indole-3-carbinol increases the estrogen removal in men. Indole-3-carbinol is one of the primary components of cruciferous vegetables.
For the best results, you should eat these vegetables raw, steamed, or boiled. These forms maximize the concentration of the indole-3-carbinol as well as the other vital nutrients.
If you’re not used to eating these on a regular basis, you may find that they make you a little gassy. To help relieve this, be certain to drink plenty of chilled water. Start off with no more than a single cup serving and gradually build your way up to larger portions.
Increasing testosterone levels through natural means is one of the safest and dramatic ways to get a stronger erection. The best part of this, however, is that by following these strategies, you’re building a much better life for yourself; it just takes a little patience as theses changes to not happen overnight, but can often take weeks to months, depending on how out of shape you may be.
Not only will you be able to get a stronger erection but you’ll be stronger, fitter, and feeling better than ever. All erection treatments have side effects of some kind, but in this case at least, all of the side effects result in a better life rather than a more difficult one.
