Re: masturbating and body building

i read that masturbation will increase your adrenaline which will allow you to lift more weight so i'd say muscle will grow faster, and at least you're working one forearm and pulse, but i don't assure you, i don't know how accurate this information is

Well, one forearm might be slightly larger than the other

When wanting to lift weights you want to be aroused in order to get the maximum performance. I'd say keeping wood would be a form of arousal. But if you waste one off you'll be satisfied, and then your gym performance will decline.

Re: masturbating and body building

Seems to me that your heart's working harder if it's pumping blood to working muscles and also an erect penis at the same time.

I've heard that masturbation is not helpful to do before sports, exercise, etc.

David Duchovny sort of debunked that myth on an episode of Conan O'Brien.

I think it's up to the individual, how they feel about it.

Personally I try not to do it because I feel like it does something weird to my body chemistry, like I give off weird pheremones or something if I've been doing it anytime recently. Aside from that, I don't feel like doing a whole lot after any kind of intense ejac/orgasm, except for laying down, kicking back, etc.

i beg to differ, the russian gym athletes in the olympics had copulation with the coaches in order to reach maximum flexibility.

and orgasms give you testosterone peeks

Maybe 'maximum flexibility' was just a way for the coaches to sell that idea to the gym athletes with whom they wanted to copulate...

BTW what's the source of that info?

I'm guessing such peaks are rather brief, and not really applicable to exercise, etc.


My point was that since I've now heard both opposite points of view, now I think it's up to the 'psychology' of the individual, i.e. whatever they think will work, etc
