I Was Told By A Guy At My Gym That Having Sex Is Bad For Your Muscular Developement. He Said That Each Time You Ejaculate, You Are Loosing Much Needed Protein. Does Anyone Have Any Scientific Proof Behind This? Or Does Anyone Know If It Is True Or Not?

Sounds like a load of shit. Having sex is good for you because everytime time you -Do the damn thing- you are generating more testosterone or something like that. They say sex is actually a great thing for you(burn off some extra calories). Not to mention the fact that sex is a requirement to stay sane.

Try googling it.

I gaurentee that pregnancy and talking after a one night stand are the only bad things about sex.

That was probably his lame excuse for not getting laid.

I've heard that there is a hormone change after sex, but I don't think it's going to affect your musculature. If you have any doubt, pop some Stak2 after sex. That should negate any 'negative side effects'.

01-23-07, 8:20 pm
so i figured i'd do some research on the topic and the basic answer turned out to be that test levels reashed their highest 7 days after abstaining from ejaculation ....so draw your own conclusions

There isnt too much protein in an ejaculation, i believe its somewhere around 4g

01-23-07, 8:28 pm
wow that kinda blows.. you would think it creates testosterone afterwards because it needs to replenish what was lost. but i guess not

If you are worried about loss of protien just have a shake after the deed! Sexual activity and stress wiil cause a increase in Prolactin. Prolactin suppresses the hormones responsible for the normal functioning of the testes. This could cause less test to be produced. For someone trying to put as much mass on as possible it might be a good idea to not hit it (or crack your carrot) every day.

I dunno man, you ever got it on while you were doing a cycle of a test booster? you turn into an animal. As far as decrease in results, who knows? According to kung fu iron palm training, you can't train iron palm for at least 24 hours after sex because your body's internal energy is being used to build back up what you shot out, and therefore won't be able to use it effectively in your training. Personally, I'll take the small sacrifice in gains to get my rocks off now and again if there is any.

I have to agree with NumeroUno on this one. That dude that told you this stuff probably never got laid and well thats probably his stupid ass excuse lol. this is kind of funny i never heard of anyone saying that sex is bad for you in any way. lol

My Grandpa told me if you ever pass up a piece of ass, you can never make it up. I have lived by that to the best of my ability. I don't think you can save it like frequent flyer miles. And what if you die before your rest day? Better get it while you can.

Bro in this game dont thnk about sex.cos when u ejaculate during sex u feel tired and also u lose stamina.So this results in a very decrease performance.And the body would take a long time to recover.So just stop thinkin abt sex anymore.Just consider the workouts.And furthermore we are not here to discuss this kind of shit.if u have any problems than consult a doc.

As far as protein loss I doubt it makes a difference BUT I know if I have sex before my WO my WO sucks!!! I live with my girl and it's not a problem to get any, not a problem at all but if I had sex everytime I got aroused or everytime my girl wanted some I'd never have a good WO or even leave the house, it takes a lot out of me I know that for sure. I save it for after my postWO shake or like this morning(my day off from gym). A good example I think is how fighters or boxers DON'T have sex for a while until AFTER the fight. It's definately hard to pass on gettin some before a WO sometimes but if I want a good WO I do. Just my .02.

BigGuy345
01-24-07, 2:49 am
There are things more important than lifting. But let me make one thing- i think that in a MARRIAGE, sex can be greta for your lfiting/bodybuilding career. You don't lose enough protein to cause any kind of problem. You don't lose stamina- in fact it increases with this kind of activity. Two of the guys I lift with are married and their bench continually goes up. One guy is 200 pounds, benches 450 raw. The other is a SHW that benches over 800.

Sex is a great thing for you as a man and as an athlete. Obviously it can make you tired just like overtraining. But, when used correctly, it can be better than any supplement available. But, I don't think we even need to worry about if we are not married men. Thats my two cents, hope you had fun.

Honestly after this post, nothing more need be said....it sums it all up
aint no way in hell sex can be counter productive unless your a porn star and do it for photo shoots all day that you feel so relaxed that you cant train properly or if your on a heavy cycle and keep doing it alot i also hear thats not too good, but im not too sure about that one

Just a heads up guys... Let's keep this focused on the Animal lifestyle. 3 things we don't want on the forum... Sex, Politics and Religious Talk. Now, we don't have anything against 'em. It's just not productive to the animal board and what we stand for, as these topics can get out of hand or extremely heated. They can turn a good board into shit in short time. There are other forums for that kinda talk and threads like these will be closed. So again, let's keep this board focused. Don't bring it here.

Serious Sex Question:

Yep.....did a search didn't find anything. Probably not using it right.


When is comes to sex and weight training. After you ejaculate and and that fun jazz. What state does your body go into? (Besides sleepy). Catabolic or Anabolic?.

Your testi levels must drop alot?

Anyways someone could answer or give me a link to a thread where there is already talked about, then shoot!.

Sex before training? Sounds like a good problem to have IMO.

03-26-09, 10:11 pm
I'm pretty sure this rumor has been shot down... originally the idea was that your test levels would be lower after sex (which would make sense, since obviously your sex drive decreases), and it was common for boxing trainers to make sure boxers wouldn't have sex the night before a fight. But it's been shown that sex doesn't decrease test levels at all, if anything it's good for them.

So I guess my point is the more sex the better, it shouldn't interfere with your training. And if it does, it's mental not physical.

This was a point made on Spike TV's "Manswers" in one episode, but applied to athletes in general. Personally I want to give whatever scientists/experts that determined this a pat on the back.

i've never experienced any problems physically (either the day of the act, or the the day after), but i know psychologically, if the wife gets my motor revved before i hit the gym i am a little distracted mentally.

I remember reading some time ago about some soccer players who would forgo sex upto a week before a game to make sure they were focused and fully recovered for the next game.

"sorry baby...You know I gotta work out tomorrow. Maybe in a couple days"... this would NEVER go well with my lady haha. She'd probably hit me, call me a sissy and then roll over.

The only way I think sex would negatively affect your workouts is if you lost sleep over it. I know sometimes a late night session can go quite a bit longer than intended and next thing you know you're only sleeping 4 hours before you gotta get up for the next day.

interesting topic lol, i have mixed views on this one. Id say you're good to go, as long as you keep it in reason. ive actually been very sore in the hips afterwards when its a good day lol, so i mean i could see that affecting it, but thats about all. so as long as you arent going 16 hours straight the day before a meet you should be in the clear lol

on a more serious note, (if this thread is remotely serious), I feel great during my workouts the day after. I sleep like a rock after sex. however, I can't right before i go to the gym, i get way too relaxed and groggy.. would never complain about it tho.

Ricky P
03-28-09, 9:23 am
I thought this was a joke before I read most of the answers.... And it's actually a pretty legit topic when it comes to energy and performance in the gym, makes sense....

With me, I personally don't like to have sex if I know I'm going to the gym within the next couple of hours.. There's always a down time after sex, and I don't want that lull to follow me to the gym. If myself and my girlfriend do it first thing in the morning, that's always fine, especially if the gym happens later in the day. I don't see any problems with doing it the day before, then there's usually good energy the next day not the other way around.

Its really hard to predict. It varies from person to person plus your diet, supplementation etc. I had a mate and we both were used to compete in british powerlifting. He was used to tell me that he was having sex almost 7-8 times a week. I once suggested him not to have sex atleast week b4 competition and guy had a sex on the night of competition and in the morning as well. He maxed out on squat just 95kg for a body weight of 105kg.
But again i would say diet plays important part.

hmm. legit topic, got a little off there for a few minutes. so far as a legitimate response goes, friend of mine was always late to the gym for the obvious reasons. He performed poorly. Broke up with said reasons and stopped being late and got massive progress. Now, so far as the night before, which was the original topic, I haven't had a problem. So long as you get enough sleep and good meals in between sex and the gym, you shouldn't have a problem. i guess it's just timing and what you do in between.

Josh04
04-24-09, 12:41 pm
I'm pretty sure that this varies from person to person. I know that after sex for me, personally, I'm tired for about 5-10 minutes, then I act like nothing happened.

However, people should know that exercise, cardio and weight training, increases sex drive. So you guys can stop worrying. If it's THAT big of an issue, you can either reschedule your workout, or your sex time.

The fact of the matter is that there is evidence that supports both sides. Until one study becomes widely supported, the "wive's tale" will continue to exist.

Hi guys,

Hi guys,
I've been trying a long time to get the right answer.Does having sex or masturbating after a torturing workout affect your testosterone like will not help you to grow when you sleep after the sexual activity? Or will it affect your next day training energy?
Please help!

I'm afraid I've never come across any literature on this topic, sorry. For what it's worth, I don't think it should affect either/or.

You can't be serious it has nothing to do with workouts.

He's asking if it would impact his training in any way, I think.

Yeah...obviously if you are having sex instead of drinking a shake PWO then yeah, it will ruin that window of anabolic activity. Get in your PWO nutrition first then do it, I can't believe you needed to ask that.

I doubt it dude, I have read the an active sex life is healthly and keeps your hormones elevated. flushing the pipes i think of it out with the bad and your body will make more (while you are young i would suppose older guys need the thier little blue buddy)

Depending on the sex, it can be QUITE a good workout, and I would say if there could ever be fun cardio, it would be it. Plus, its sex. Just do it. Its good for the mind, soul, and body.

Personally, after sex I have tons of energy. You guys need to get on some horny goat weed or something! Ya'll sound like old men!

To the original question, make her wait to have sex after your PWO shake or meal digests. If she can't wait, MAKE HER! It will heighten the sex, but beware she may tackle you!!

I do have that problem as well. The harder you train, the more hormones your body has to release to aid in the healing process; therefore, you get hornier. It also helps that my natural test/HGH levels are higher than most.

Unfortunately for my lady, I typically last 10-25 minutes =) so I guess that counts as cardio... HAHAHAHAHA!

Sex is healthy,part of life and keeps you sane and it has no effect on workouts ..it actually raises test levels.

Wow, this thread got pretty nuts, surprised it lasted this long, but sweet that it did.

Does anyone read MD and the Sex section? I m a regular MD reader front to back and actually this has been discussed numerous times in there. I will give the best break down I can remember.

Sex actually can be beneficial(as well as masterbation) for males after a workout. Not necessarily directly after, but yea you get the drift. It helps to release more test and hormones, which help to stimulate muscle fibers etc. I don't think it was a US test as most of them are European it seems in MD, but it was tested that it helped to improve overall strength.

This was based on a male study, not females... Hormones are different and have different effects/release stimulus.

Sex before a workout will decrease overall strength due to it taking away some test and hormones and putting hte body through stress prior to more stress. Obviouslly this is talking about directly before, not like several hours.

So hopefully that was a quick but decent breakdown for everyone.

What I understand is that male test levels peak daily around 1000. I try to hit the gym then, when I'm not working on the fucked up 2000 - 0800 shift. This is how I roll on the ideal schedule when I work 1600 - 0000.

0900 - Wake Up
1000 - Weights
1230 - Tan
1300 - Sex
1400 - Nap
1600 - Work

I find that gives the body the best chance to recover from the 'strains' of the normal life of an Iron Warrior.

At first I was also worried about whether having sex with my g/f would negatively affect my training/growth.

Now I just make sure I get a post-sex meal. lately it's been pretty simple, a 40g protein shake and a banana.
