Sex and Sleep Changes Everything!
This podcast episode is a result of numerous emails that have come in since the beginning of the year from excited (no pun intended) new clients who have enjoyed deeper levels of sleep and associated benefits (less anxiety, lower body fat, improved athletic performance, more energy, etc.) after Coach Robb recommended that they get sex back into their normal routine (the more frequent the better)!
If you have young ears that can hear this podcast, please be aware that we are going to be talking about sex in numerous ways and we don’t want to offend anyone. We are asking that you listen to this podcast with a mature mindset and recognize that our conversation about sexual behavior and how it translates into better health, wellness and performance (both in and out of the bedroom) will be uncensored.
Initially, Coach Robb gives a physiological explanation of the sex drive and how it isn’t something that you can turn on and off but rather is a by product of your brain and hormonal system communicating with each other (when healthy) to create a consistent sex drive. Though the act of sexual relations (specifically orgasms) can be enjoyable, Coach Robb explains the health benefits associated with having orgasms and why having them two times a week can actually improve your immune system.
If you have been dealing with reduced sex drive, fatigue, moodiness, low strength and endurance levels, night sweats, insomnia, etc. for a long period of time, you may now be in a mode of exhaustion where your coping system in your body relevant to stress – the adrenals, are being either over worked or under fueled. The chronic overload and/or under fueling of the adrenals results in an adrenal system that is burnt out and not able to execute its job of excreting the hormones necessary for dealing with stress, improving energy and decreasing unwanted body fat.
Coach Robb provides five key actions that you can implement immediately to turn adrenal fatigue disorders and symptoms around naturally and without purchasing anything. These five actions will help establish a foundation that Coach Robb refers to as the square of life: personal, professional, financial and athletic.
Whether you are looking to improve your overall health or wanting to improve your athletic performance, when you successfully incorporate all five actions in a consistent manner your body will begin to sleep better, recover stronger, have more energy and less incidents of illness and injuries while building lean muscle mass and dropping unwanted body fat in a consistent, sustainable manner without any regressions or setbacks.
