I've been concerned about the timing of masturbation if regard to working out, so I've been trying to find information on if it may be detrimental to do right after or not.
Here is something interesting I found:
Serum Levels of LH, Prolactin and Growth Hormone After Eaculation in Bulls -- CONVEY et al. 5 (1): 20 -- Biology of Reproduction
Excerpts: (Numbering emphasis = mine)
#1 Growth hormone increased (p < .01) from 4.1 ng/ml before ejaculation to 8.1 ng/ml 5 min after ejaculation and returned to pre-ejaculation values by 30 min after ejaculation.
#2 We conclude that stimuli associated with ejaculation cause release of GH and prolactin, and possibly LH, but prolactin is released in greater quantity than LH or GH.
Do you think there is any practicality to masturbation post w/o for the increase in GH?
P.S. Yes, I know I'm crazy - just answer the question.
