Hi , I'm Ken Schafer and I'm here to discuss all things related to men's sexual health .
And as I've said before , sexual health is really general health with a specific goal , I encourage everybody to exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle .
I think it's particularly important for men with Ed to start exercising .
Remember that Ed is almost always a sign of something going wrong with your health to take control of the situation .
You need to do everything you can to reclaim your health for the purposes of this discussion .
I'm gonna break down fitness into two broad categories .
Those two broad categories are physiological and neurological .
The physiological are things like endurance , strength , power , stamina .
The neurological are things like flexibility , balance and skill .
Let's cover these various types of fitness , endurance exercise or cardio for men with Ed .
This can be a very important form of exercise for two reasons .
Men with Ed often have compromised vasculature , compromised circulatory systems and cardio can help you improve the health of your cardio respiratory system .
It also stimulates the growth of mitochondria and mitochondria , the powerhouses of the cell .
And if you have more of them , you're gonna have better metabolism , this strength and power , putting them together here for this discussion , but they're not exactly the same thing , but strength and power helped develop muscular , strength and muscular strength is an important element in moving well and avoiding injuries .
The stronger you are generally the easier it is to adapt to any kind of exercise .
Another benefit of strength and power training is that it can potentially stimulate the production of testosterone and men with ed often have low testosterone levels .
The neurological components of fitness , I think the primary one that I want to talk about is joint mobility , which is more commonly known as flexibility and this is a neurological problem .
The reason why you don't have good flexibility has nothing to do with the tissues of your muscles , has nothing to do with your tendons .
What it has to do is with your brain not allowing you to move into certain positions .
This is a very complicated topic .
I'm not gonna discuss all the nuances it but uh it , it is a neurological element of fitness .
Now , why do you need to be flexible ?
A lot of people don't care if they're flexible but flexibility allows you to move .
Well , if you move well , it's easier to exercise .
If you're moving efficiently , that will help you to avoid injuries , there's nothing worse .
Then starting an exercise program , you're just getting into it , everything's falling into place , then you get an injury and you have to start all over again , you lose momentum .
And the next thing you know , you're six months down the road and you're not exercising .
There are other elements of neurological fitness .
One of them is balance .
Some people have great balance .
I have marginal balance in my opinion .
So I do balance training again .
You need good balance in order to move well in the world , the better your balance , the more efficient your movements and the less likely you are to get injured .
I would also point out that there is a neurological element to Ed , not for every man but for some men .
And by addressing the elements of neurological fitness , you may be addressing neurological problems that are contributing to your Ed .
I wanted to wrap this discussion up with a little bit about high intensity interval training .
Hiit training for short .
Now , as the name suggests this high intensity and it's promoted as a way for men to increase their testosterone levels .
And the data does seem to support that claim .
However , I think most men and particularly most men with Ed are not fit enough to enter into a high intensity interval training program .
My upcoming videos will focus on what men can do to prepare their bodies so that they can participate in high intensity interval training .
I'll be focusing on strength , power and mobility .
So stay tuned until the next video .
Thank you for watching and goodbye .
