The traditional position where the woman is on top of the man offers a great opportunity to get moving. In this sex position, as you are on top of him, you move your hips to control the thrust. You can use your arms for stability, and if you are up for a deeper work-out, try putting your hands right behind your butt and use your arms to back bend. If you use no hands, all the effort will go in your core – hello abs!

He is standing and you hug him with your legs around his waist.

Even if you are supported by a wall, this position is a killer for toning your legs and your core!

The Lotus

It is a variation of the standing position, while being seated. He is seated in lotus, and you wrap your legs around his waist. Since you are on top, you will need to use your core muscles as well as your glutes to get in movement. Perfect for toning!

The Bridge or Arch:bridge positionCredits: Yordanka Poleganova

Like in pilates class, you are in a bridge position: your pelvis, back and thighs are lifted, and you use your hands and your feet pushing against the floor to raise your body as a bridge.

You can also go into the yogi version, leaving your shoulders on the floor instead of pushing on your palms. This position requires you pushing hard on your feet, and it is great for toning the legs, the buttocks and the muscles of the back. If you are on your hands, it will also strengthen your shoulders.

The plow

As the name suggests it, in this position, you are the plow and he is… well, the farmer. Use your elbows to take stability against a bed or a table, while your man lifts your body through lifting your thighs. This position, which can feel very similar to a forearm plank, will need arms and core strength !


The lunge

In this position, you are on top of him, in a lunge position. Lunges are an excellent way to build strength in your legs, as well as shaping your glutes ! To move while being in the position, you can use your hands on your man and move up and down. If your bent leg gets tired… change legs! Bonus to keep you going: this position is known to offer more chances for women to get a vaginal orgasm as it allows clitoral stimulation too.

Each of these sex positions has many variations for a more intense work-out… hum, sorry, sexual experience. You can for example use hands instead of elbows in the plow. Or choose to use more or less arms/legs in the standing position. While being in the position, you will be able to feel what is working, and how you could make specific muscles work more or less.


No more guilt trips over the gym, because when there is a will, there is always a way to get your body moving! We hope you will enjoy your new fitness program!
