    I was told it helps boost testosterone levels which are essential for anabolic growth.

    Even masturbation? :o

    sex is ok. i think masturbation would have a negative effect on your test levels though...

    in for more accurate answer, though...it's been a while and i may have forgotten the details..

    why would sex be ok but not masturbation? only difference is whether its Palm or Pam

    somebody posted the abstract to a study that says going without will boost test levels, up to a week or so, then levels go down.

    I really wouldn't worry about it, the degree to which it effects anabolism isn't that high when compared to diet and training though

    sexual activity raises testosterone levels.

    Engage in it whenever possible so long as you arn't going to be using the energy you need for your training.

    Jesus christ, if you're worried about the effect sex has on your training, you have my deepest sympathies.

    Wacking it and not shooting your load can raise your test levels for a period of time. If you have no self control and mess yourself, it was sap your energy and hurt your workout.

    So jerk it right before the gym, just dont blow ur wad.

    +1.

    Sex > Lifting

    This is a pretty fenced issue actually. Some say that sexual activity increases test production, and others say that staying away from sexual activity will increase it.

    I believe that sexual activity in itself will increase it, HOWEVER once you blow your load forget about it. In ancient China, famous fighters and rulers would have sex several times a day, but they would never bust a nut. They believed that the act of sex was good for you and made you stronger, but an orgasm would negative affects.... Because of this thought they would have sex with different women everyday up to the point of orgasm and then stop :eek3:

    Unfortunately, my g/f gets to claim all my lost test. She is pretty strong for a chick though, that must be why :noes:

    I know that if you are into fighting sports it is not advantageous to have sex for several weeks BEFORE a fight...as this diminishes testosterone.

    I wouldn't worry unless you are competing, tho...and then after isn't the issue.

    Seriously have we gotten to the point where to get an supposive edge we are debating about whether to have sex. If I get to this point I am turning in everything and quitting.

    If you need an edge when you get home well you should have put more weight on or squeezed a couple more reps out or maybe look at your program or something else not praying for a "anabolic growth spurt because of sex".

    If this was the case I would have been the biggest guy when I was at high school instead nope I was a 100lb weakling at high school start and 120 at graduation.
