No matter what luck you may have had with women previously, there’s a good chance that, at some point or other, you’ve been interested in increasing your “manpower” – the physical traits that are often equated with masculinity and virility. For many men, building physique serves as an effective countermeasure to the growth of insecurity. Although this isn’t necessarily a “direct” method of confronting perceived insecurities, it can be an excellent tool for remaining healthy and inspiring the growth of self-confidence. No matter what your current physical shape may be, we’ve compiled a few techniques that you can use to ensure you remain in top physical form throughout the prime of your life.
It’s important to note that, for those who may not be accustomed to routine physical exercise, it’s important to start slow! The body needs time to adjust to strength-building exercise, particularly those that strenuously target specific muscle groups. If you’re feeling overly tired or sore after an exercise, that may be a sign that you should take a day off! If you’re genuinely interested in building a healthy physique for the “long term” approach these exercises with the same respect that you approach your body.
Strategy #1: Uncover Your Abs
Believe it not, you were born with six-pack abs. Whether or not we’ll ever see them, however, is entirely up to you. For men, fat is typically stored in the abdominal region. This differs greatly from women, who have a genetic predisposition for storing fat in the hips and buttocks.
In order to unearth your abdominal muscles, you’re going to have to exercise this particular region of the body. Standard abs crunches have become the workhorse of many workout routines due to the relative ease of execution and an equipment-free approach to physical fitness. When combined with a proper diet and aerobic activity, such as running, men can quickly begin promoting ab development and see the results of their efforts.
Strategy #2: Build Your Biceps
Weight training and pull-ups can help you increase the size of your biceps, one of the most visible and often noticed areas of the male physique. The benefits of this particular type of exercise can also cross over into the bedroom. During sex, men are often required to prop themselves up during thrusting in an effort to displace their weight and avoid crushing their partner. Through bicep-building exercises, you can ensure that you not only look great, but are also capable of “performing” up to your expectations during sex.
Strategy #3: Fill Up On Fat-Burning
At first, this may seem to defy logical thought. If your goal is to maintain physical health and develop your physique, why would you increase your fat intake? Believe it or not, the “good fat” found in certain foods provides essential fatty acids and is an excellent source of physical energy. This doesn’t mean that you should seek out the nearest junk food supply. The beneficial fats found in healthy foods such as avocados and nuts can provide essential nutrition and energy resources to men who are in the process of undertaking intensive exercise routines.
Strategy #4: Stay Away from the Bar
Not only does alcohol decrease testosterone levels, reducing a man’s desire for sex and physical intimacy, it’s also a massive calorie bomb, evidenced by the “beer gut” seen on so many men who enjoy above-average quantities of alcoholic beverages. If you’re serious about improving your body, you should carefully regulate your alcohol intake, ensuring that you don’t consume these drinks in excess.

Strategy #5: Stop Stressing
Easier said than done, right? For many men, the stress is an unavoidable “fact” of life. This doesn’t mean, however, that we shouldn’t be aware of the damage stress does to our body. Long-term stress has been proven to drastically reduce sexual desire levels in many men. Additionally, stress has been known to cause erectile dysfunction and balding in men who are unable to effectively reduce this negative emotional pressure.
It’s absolutely essential that you confront the source of your stress before allowing it to take control of your life. Find time to step away from the manic tempo of life, partaking in events you derive pleasure from at least once a week. Not only will this give you something to look forward to, it will provide invaluable long-term health benefits.
*All individuals are unique. Your results can and will vary.
Even if you can’t accomplish all of the tasks described above, you should focus on taking “baby steps” in the right direction. Simple changes can quickly result in increased health benefits, allowing you to look and feel better on a daily basis. If you’re lucky enough to spend a significant amount of time each week on the tasks outlined here, you’ll definitely notice your “manpower” take off! Here’s to living a life you enjoy!
