Maintaining your sexual health is important. If you’re looking for an easy way to help prevent erectile dysfunction, look no further than your own two feet. A study published in the August 2000 issue of Urology concluded that physical activity may reduce the risk of erectile dysfunction even if initiated in midlife. It suggested that it may be too late to reverse the effects of smoking, obesity, and alcohol consumption on erectile dysfunction but there may be hope by engaging in physical activity. And that can be as easy as a brisk two-mile walk each day.
“Instead, you could enjoy a jog or other exercise that burns 200 calories and increases the heart rate. Biking is not recommended as it has been shown in some studies to increase the risk of impotence due to blood flow restriction from the bike seat.” (verywellfit.com)
Exercise improves blood flow through your blood vessels. The activity level this study found was needed to improve penile blood flow amounts to two miles of walking at a brisk pace per day. A brisk two-mile walk takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes. In New York City, that’s a breezy 40 block walk if you’re going North-South. East-West is a little more complicated. The distance between avenues is more complicated. In general, one long block between the avenues equals three short blocks.
