On nearly every strength training and bodybuilding website on the internet, there's some jackass asking a question to which the answer should be obvious- "will jerking off/fucking negatively impact my workouts?" Now, putting aside the fact that said moron should drown himself in a fucking bucket of bleach for even contemplating abstinence were the answer to be in the affirmative, allow me to lay this sick dog to rest:
Sexual activity and Badassery are inextricably intertwined.
This should not be anything that needs to be investigated, as it seems about as obvious as anything could possibly be.
Watch porn. Men and womens' test level raise 100% and 80% in response to sexual stimuli. That means that both of your libidos will rise accordingly, due to the fact that both men and womens' sex drives are dependant on their testosterone levels. (New Scientist) Additionally, studies have shown that sexual stimuli will increase both LH production and test levels, so not only will your cock be rock hard, fellas, but you'll be droppin' motherfucking loads like Nick Manning all the live long day. (Stoleru)
Fuck or masturbate (or both) AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. A study in Mexico showed that serum testosterone levels in rats rose markedly after two consecutive orgasms, and even further after four. (Hernandez) Additionally, "frequent sex improves sex hormone regulation in men and women, and boosts blood vessel health.... [and] Frequent ejaculation reduces the risk of prostate enlargement and cancer.(JSM) On top of that, studies have shown that in addition to those positive hormonal fluctuations, cumming has positive effects on your endocrine system, and causes your body to produce more adrenaline, prolactin, and killer cells, which in turn improves immune system function.(BB.com) Thus, by getting off as much as humanly possible, you're generating a shitload of testosterone in both men and women, leutinizing hormone in men, and improving your recovery time from hard workouts in both. It goes without saying that you're also getting off, which means that you'll have elevated levels of dopamine (which reduces pain and improves mood), and that you'll be burning calories, which will make you leaner, in addition to improving your cardio.
For those guys, who like me, want kids like they want AIDS, there's more good news with this type of a compulsive fucking/masturbating scheme- your sperm count drops like a motherfucker (to about 27% of norm). That means (though I'm not endorsing this) you can go bareback without the bare facts and not worry quite so much.(Freund)
In the second half of this, I'll go into a bit more detail, but in the meantime, use this as a reason to spend labor day laboring your ass off in the bedroom.
