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.

before, after, durring,.. sure all may effect my lifts some :P but the effects on my mood are unmeasureable at times

There was a study done i think someone posted it here. Intercourse helped women but decreased workout intensity for men.

All my life I've never stopped to worry 'bout a thing,
Open up and shout it out, an' never try to sing,
Wondering if I've done it wrong,
Will this depression last for long, wont you tell me,
Where have all the good times gone.

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.)
