    sex before lifting?


    IDK if this is even in the right part of the forum, but it will do. I was wondering if having sex before hitting the gym takes away from your drive. I feel like if I have sex before I lift my lifts are lower. Might be because testosterone is going to your nuts to make more sperm, I don't really know. If anyone has some insight into this issue I would like to know. Thanks.

    Hell, after sex I just want to sleep...I don't have anything scientific to back it up but none of the athletes I knew would even think of having sex prior to their events.

    I beleive there are hormonal changes that occure after sex. Dont ask me why, but I think there is some aromatazation after gettn off (along wit ha prolactin increase.. etc)

    I generally tend to wait until after sex.

    Also, I have found that being horey as hell also adds to my drive.

    At my age I think sex before a workout is great (its also my cardio - I have to catch her first)

    I find that my lifts are low as well...I can live with that.

    I remember in one of my psych classes in college that my professor actually said that it is natural for men to want to fall asleep after sex due to certain mechanisms. So, it's not your fault if you want to fall asleep! You're just programmed that way!!!

    Years ago my personal trainer and I were talking about women and sex...He told me women like being slapped on the ass during sex...so I gave it a try...

    it was bad...very bad. It was the true meaning to "RODEO" sex..what a ride...and it was a while before I got back in the saddle.

    You wouldnt want to start off with a ass rocking beatdown slap! But with a few medium slaps i think it would increase bloodflow and therefore sensitivity, my current gf is not the bite me hard kind of girl but a few correctly timed slaps can do no harm. Im sure i should be asking oyu for tips. Any secret moves you wanna make not so secret? lol.

    I remember in one of my college biology classes that the reason for becoming tired after sex is due to a release of tyrptophan after getting off. I haven't done any research into this matter but i'm pretty sure that is correct.

    Hey, if I'm still young and grub-like instead of being a glorious Soldier Ant like you folks, how do I go about this? It's sort of a paradox for me.

    (Intentionally stupid question.)
