1. Aerobic Fitness Exercises Treat Erectile Dysfunction
Aerobic fitness (cardiovascular) exercise increases heart rate and breathing. Hardness occurs when blood flows quickly into the penis. Aerobic fitness exercise increases blood flow and causes blood vessels to dilate (open up). Appropriate cardiovascular exercise increases circulation so more blood flows faster through the entire body including increased penile blood flow.

Cardiovascular exercises for treating erectile dysfunction include:
Brisk walking
Swimming (Duca 2017)
Cycling (Allen & Walter 2018)
Running (Allen 2019)

4 days/week

(Allen, 2019). Male team sports have psychological benefits that can carry over to improved erectile function e.g. football and baseball (Allen, 2019)
