    Serious topic, not a joke....Does masturbation affect your workout

    This thread isnt meant to be a joke or funny, im completely serious. Ive found that abstaining from sex or masturbation for a few days allows me to have MUCH more productive workouts. I dont konw what it is, but has anyone else out there noticed this or might it be in my head? (no pun intended)

    Yeah....good to clean the pipes before the gym. Otherwise that dam TEST can make me pitch a tent in mid workout....well, perhapsthat's a mix of the TEST and those damn hotties at the gym!

    I know how you feel dude. I would not have sex at least 3 day prior to a meet when I ran track in college. It messed up my legs. They just didn't feel right. Most of the guys on the team were the same way. Our coach even told us not to.

    If you are working your forearms it makes them a little more tired during the workout, I find taking a shit before working out gives me more energy

    yes thats true that you might have more productive workouts b/c when you bust your natural test levels drop dramatically, so when you dont bust for sometime there is kind of like a build of testostorone in your body which could be the reason for a better workout !

    i don't know about the test levels dropping because i have heard both theories, one being that they are replenished and even higher and two, it drops, regardless, see how it makes you feel, i personally get too relaxed if i have had sex earlier in the day. Do an experiment......just don't give us a play by play.

    im going by what my bio professor said, and he has a dr. in bio but i dunno prof's can be wrong but for the most part i think it's reliable ! there is also a few % of guys who after sex and ejaculation feel very energetic kind of like their test levels are replenished but from what ive studied it is a very very low % of males who experience this !

    I'm relaxed after brah, so I'm guessing it will take away from your workout. The release of the pheromes puts me to sleep most of the time with ease. It's like sleeping after sex, you ever notice that's the BEST sleep you get? So IMO, if you jerk it before you workout, you'll be too relaxed to actually go as intense as prior to jerking off.

    Good luck with whichever route you take in life my brother.

    i think its all in ur hed bro, Toby and I had a discussion about this. I dont think it makes any difference to realse a bit of testosterone right before your workout. I have been hearing this so called issue for a long time and its something you can argue all day long. i feel much better to get some b4 a work out But then again i hear that professional soccer players are not allowed to have sex b4 their major games like the world cup.

    After you ejaculate, your body produces some chemicals(neurotransmitters??) that put you to sleep. They make you feel more drowsy. If you try to workout after that, you will notice that your intensity is much lower. I completely agree with Ronny; DO NOT masturbate before working out; but afterwards is fine.

    By the way, what does this have to do with steriods ?

    Just don't masterbate while working out unless you workout at home. People at the gym tend to frown on masterbaters.

    i agree with mstearns76, i was in the atheletics team previously and i couldn't sprint for shit if i wanked before training.

    similarly, i don't have the habit of wanking before workouts too. i feel lethargic and the intensity drops by a considerable amount. hence you get the best of both worlds if you wank after your workouts - 2 high intensity workouts

    I donno, I havent done serious roids yet to see if it matters much but for me, what I did the night before makes no difference on today. Although I wouldnt want to go work out after having sex. It seems what we are all working for is to look sexy and to feel sexy, so if your sexual motivation is high, then you would clearly have a better work out. After sex, its like the feeling sexy or wanting to look sexy motivation is kind of shot so I would think, sure no sex before work out. After workout sex - why not? Do you guys not fully recover and ready to go again the next day just the same or is it the roids are dampering the libido that much? Me, I can give the sex every night of the week but wife only wants to give it up about every 9 to 14 days so I dont dare miss my opportunity to get some or it will be a month before I get another chance.
