Is Hockey the New Viagra?

Play Hockey to Score both On and Off the Ice

Ice hockey is a great game. It's fun, exiting, challenging, and an awesome workout. It also turns out that playing hockey can energize your sex life as well!

If you're not in the greatest shape, playing hockey will definitely get you there. The pace of the game and the sheer energy needed to skate after the puck gets your heart and lungs working more than just about any other sport. If you can get on the ice at least twice a week for an hour at a time, you'll start noticing more jump in your step in no time at all.

Your enhanced physique will improve your self-esteem, and get a few extra looks for the opposite sex. Being in better shape improves your blood circulation to all areas of your body including your intimate zones making intimate encounters more gratifying.

Hockey is a great anaerobic workout because it alternates intense physical activity with periods of rest. Basically it's a form of interval training. You play hard for somewhere between 45 and 60 seconds, then rest up on the bench until your next shift.

"Men and women who exercise regularly are going to have increased levels of desire," says Cedric Bryant, PhD, chief exercise physiologist for the American Council on Exercise. "They're going to have enhanced confidence, enhanced ability to achieve orgasm, and greater sexual satisfaction."

So the next time you're thinking about reaching for that little blue pill to spice up the bedroom, reach for your hockey stick instead.
