What is the true meaning behind a trainer telling his fighter to avoid knockin boots with his woman leading up to a fight? Does it effect a fighter mentally, physically, both or is it just a myth?

If I train after sex I don't feel like it effects my performance at the gym. More or less, I feel like I already got my cardio workout in, so let me go knock out this weight training lol. All serious note though, is there a scientific reason to this notion of "no sex leading up to a fight" or is Mickey full of shit?

Depends on how shortly or long after having sex. What sex does is drop one's testosterone levels, which can lead to less than optimal workouts. It usually takes about 24hrs for test to return its regular levels. Now, I wont' even get into the serotonin release from your brain that, well, you know, gives you that "itis" after you "buss"!!! LOL.

In short, there is definitely some "science" to the notion of abstaining from PRE-workout sex.
