Full Version: No Sex Leading Up To A Fight: Myth or True?
FightHype Community > BOXING HYPE > Boxing

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?

Something to do with testosterone. I'm not sure exactly but i've always heard this too. I feel fine working out after smashing but a 10-12 round fight could be alil different.

With sex before the fight; I imagine it would like Mayweather against Cotto, feeling over trained or just not the usual compared to being loose and having all the energy you can to move all around the ring. But i want to know the real reason myself.

Funny quote i forgot who said it but it went something like "I'm pissed i cant' have sex before the fight. I get to take all my anger out on ****" they said it much better lol but i know some fighters do abide by this rule.

if i was a boxer, i would try it

I'm not sure but this rule definitely applied to me when I played basketball. I know professional basketball players that feel the same way including Carmelo Anthony (and his wife is sexy as hell). I think it's the testosterone but I know for me...my legs didn't feel as lively.

when i played football my performance was actually better on the field if i didnt smash some caccoon the whole week

At a young age it doesn't actually matter at all, kinda because usually busting a nut (yeah I called it that lol) in any form actually raises testosterone levels. But if your young it wouldn't matter that much really, but if your older like 40ish, the improvement would be an obvious one compared to your levels before. Who knows maybe thats BHops secret. I think that was the general theory
mitukczuk
The testosterone levels rise a lot during sex and especially orgasm...it takes a while for the body to recuperrate from any physical activity (what a surprise!). It's the same with lifting weights etc...you can boost the production naturally by eating some peanuts or fish oil, but it's no wonder. If testosterone is missing, you just won't be at your best...if you are a man..everything is connected to testosterone..muscle bulding, performance, strength, speed, adrenaline production...

After I buss one, I see stars and stripes and lose the feeling in my legs for a good 5 mins...

depends on the person...

if you're someone full of nervous energy that needs to calm down i'd say it's a good thing.

but if you're already someone who is laid back and needs to be fired up...i'd say avoid it.

i tested the theory when i used to fight...and i know guys who have done the same. in my situation, i'd avoid it because when i went at it...it was like a work out. i'd show up to spar and wonder why i was getting hit more than usual and why i couldn't rip off my blazing combinations. laugh.gif

bottom line...everyone is different.

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.

I don't know...but after sex, I usually just want to take a nap afterwards. I don't think I'd be able to do anything physically intensive such as fighting after a happy ending.

Serotonin release...a.k.a. "the itis".

Also even greater than the actual sex is the woman. Every great man's downfall is because of a woman. If you're on your road to glory, until you're being glorified, stay away from anything with a pussy. Whether or not you intend on giving them the attention they want, as long as you keep em around they WILL distract you from your objective. Its just the way the cookie crumbles from what I've experienced and observed.

SAME! Well yeah I see spots and get weak knees...gimme a minute to recover! black eye.gif

On topic some guys do and some guys don't I think its just down to your own personal y'know.

Athletes though, I don't think it matters for a prime fighter. I'm sure age comes into it.

I said comes.

That whole thing though, when you know if you win its gonna be SWEET! Thats a good thing to have and to think its gonna be fresh and ready for you. I'd say maybe abstain 3 days to a week before the fight.

And make sure you're looking after that pussy, cos if a woman goes 12 weeks no dick she's gonna be as itchy as you if you go 12 weeks no pussy.

So I think you HAVE to take care of that business.

Depends on the guy. Some should do it after the fight, testosterone build up can help their rage and adrenaline for the fight. Some guys may need it before a fight, to keep calm and focused.

This my friend, is the gospel.

Me and chick split after 3 years, and I paid off my car, got a new job, and bought a new house in a matter of months. After the last chick of 11 months left me, I got two promotions on my job, got a fat check from the IRS, and started doing floors and home improvement projects to this day.

Somebody has surely written a book about this shit. *Cshel opens a new Google tab*

If I totally deflate like that after recreational sex, then chances are, I wont be shit in the ring.

You'd think that a fighter would want to save it all up until after fight, but some of them may be different. Maybe its a mental thing as well.

And people wonder how Mike Tyson was knocking dudes' head back like Pez Dispensers in his early days. I believe he had his long period of celibacy. Well, I still want him to sound like a tough guy, so I'll save the "celibacy" stuff for women. He was "wholeheartedly" focused on his career. Lol

I played three sports in high school and two in college. High school that all I did was play ball and then get my balls played with or it was the other way around. I honestly say in high school I actually played better after sex because it wasn't on my mind. Now college it was a little different because the stress of practice and studying I wasn't prepared for. When I got to my sophomore year in college before two days or maybe even one day before my football game or track meet turning down the young dimes at Spelman was more than I could handle. So I got cracked once or twice but I was fine after the first series. Now sex before a track meet helped me relax and my legs felt great. So I guess to each its own. Plus my lady at the time wouldn't sleep with me if I lost my race or had a bad game, so that was extra incentives to play and run well. Now the girls from Clark were a little forgiving, damn I miss college! I am not going to even talk about the sluts from Emory! thumbsup_anim.gif Rich girls are NASTY!

If there is anyone in here who has ever been in the ring and was being taken into deep water, you would appreciate that small bit of testosterone to get you through.

I dont mean to be inappropriate if there are any ladies reading this thread, so if so don't read on.

Fellas, ever notice after a strong session with a lady, and your drained (not just figuratively). That your legs can be shaky, or even a bit weak?.. well, in a fight, or even sparring, you need that bit of testosterone.

Ever notice that when your done, your done??? Like as in your drive is over and all of a sudden your ready to just roll or lay down? Its that same thing. I'm no scientist but Im sure there is something chemically that makes lose your hunger, drive, and motivation to continue

All of this is connected, and men get the short end of the stick. Its genetically in us. Two main purposes for exsistance,...(non spiritual view). 1. Breed, and protect (fight) that what you are breeding for, offspring. The two most primordial things in us require massive amounts of testosterone..

In short, u cant blow your load the night before your fight and expect to be in peak fighting form

I'm not ready to roll or lay down until I know that the rag is on the way. If she doesn't come back with the rag within 5 mins, then my chin touches my shoulder (sleep), or I'm usually in a Pacquiao position, then I wake up and leave. NOW, when I'm at home, she has 3 mins to get that rag, before anything else happens. Hope this helps...
