Masturbating the day you lift?
I'm on the once a week program for masturbating. My question is, should this be on a day I lift or an off day for the best benefits from lifting?

RE: Masturbating the day you lift?
I doubt there's anything scientific on this, but when wank it I get lazy. When I'm lazy I half-ass my workout. Wank it on Sundays night when you're probably not with a girl, not working out, and not doing anything super important.

I'm talking about afterwards, I'm the same. I'm thinking about testosterone levels mainly.

Do it the day you work out that's right before your off day. Do it after you work out. That way you have a full day to replenish your essence.

RE: Masturbating the day you lift?
Ugh...I'm going to the gym in an hour, and now I'm thinking about some dude's baby batter being on the bar. I'm going to have to spray and sanitize before starting. I'm going to end up like Howard Hughes.
Also, about wanking...its just a mental thing. If it makes you feel stronger to wank, then do it...if it makes you feel more like a man to drag around swollen blue balls then do that too.
Personally, my labido is through the roof when I'm lifting on a regular schedule, I get morning wood like I was 16, and I wank at least twice a day.

RE: Masturbating the day you lift?
If you feel you need to let that nut out by all means do it. Don't forget you could channel this energy into your workouts though.

I'd rather get laid before or after a workout, because it makes me feel great. On the other hand, masturbating usually depletes my energy levels and reduces my ability to focus.

Make every day count.

RE: Masturbating the day you lift?
Why is this even a question. You could probably jerk it in the minute or so between sets and it wouldn't make a difference for lifting, outside of you getting kicked out of the gym.

RE: Masturbating the day you lift?
I try to keep it once a week.
3 days a week at the gym on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with a session on Friday night.
That way my test. has a chance to build up over the weekend.

http://examine.com/faq/does-ejaculation-...evels.html

Quote: Ejaculation results in changes in prolactin (increase) and dopamine (temporary decrease), but does not result in changes in Testosterone. Although prolactin and dopamine are both involved with testosterone, they do not appear to influence testosterone levels acutely.
Dopamine is reduced temporarily as prolactin rises, as the two can be seen as antagonistic of each other. Levels shortly normalize.[1] The post-orgasm 'orgasmic state' of euphoria is mediated by prolactin and mimicked by ectasy.[2]

What does male orgasm result in, biochemically?
Higher serum Testosterone levels are seen during abstinence (3 weeks in cited study).[3] Non-significant Luteinizing Hormone increases have also been noted.[3] The difference between abstinence and non-abstinence appears to be about 0.5ng/ml when averaged out.[3]

Although higher testosterone levels are seen with abstinence,[4] orgasm does not acutely affect testosterone levels in the blood.[3] Although there is not much evidence for the spike in testosterone during abstinence, there does not appear to be counter evidence at the moment; it is an understudied topic.

Orgasm can cause a significant spike in prolactin levels (approximately 10 to 15ng/ml) immediately after and upwards to 10-20 minutes later, at which it starts to decline.[3][5] This spike is dependent on ejaculation, and does not occur under non-orgasmic arousal.[6] This spike may serve to suppress further sexual desires.[7][8]

Various cardiovascular parameters, such as heart rate and catecholamine (adrenaline, noradrenaline) levels are increased during sex/masturbation and orgasm.[5] Some measure of increase is seen during arousal.[6]

Other various markers, such as Vasopressin and Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) remain unchanged.[6]

Biochemical markers do not differ significantly when comparing orgasm after abstinence and orgasm without abstinence.[3] Slight increases were seen in heart rate and catecholamine (adrenaline) levels, but may be due to self-reported higher arousal on average.

How is testosterone related to orgasm?
Testosterone has minimal interactions with orgasm, but is seen as a positive regulator of sexual desire or libido alongside dopamine.[9][10] Agents that increase dopamine levels or act like dopamine can increase frequency of erections and subjective sexual arousal.[11][12] Prolactin is the opposite here, and is a negative regulator of sexual appetite.

The actual ejaculatory process and erection process is mediated by serotonin and Nitric Oxide, as well as various mechanical contractions in the pelvic and penile region.[9] Drugs or supplements that interfere with serotonin reuptake (such as SSRIs) can reduce the orgasm response, and may be useful in treating premature ejaculation.[13][14]

RE: Masturbating the day you lift?
Absolutely no correlation. I rub one out daily and I feel great. Before workouts Iv done before and I dont feel any difference. Sometimes rubbing one out before a workout can make me focus on my workout better and not on the hot pussy doing squats right in my face.

Maaayybe if you do it in the bathroom during a workout you might feel a bit off, but I wouldn't recommend it (the thought of that cracks me up).

There are people on this forum that advocate no beating off at all. Everyone has their own preference. For me its part of a routine.

Whether Im horny or not, it simply clears my head. If Im not sure if I should text a girl, or I have an Ex on my mind, or whatever maybe in your head, go jerk off. I promise you will feel alot better and see things alot more clearly.

RE: Masturbating the day you lift?
If you wank chronically, you'll be drained. The odd one before you lift won't make much difference.

I sometimes like to rough my wife up, pull her hair, slip my dick in and slap her ass but not nut – about an hour before I drive to the gym – on days when I know I'll go for a PB.

Then I listen to grinding heavy shit all the way to the gym and by the time I get there I feel like Godzilla.

Don't tell me I'm the only one that does it while working out.
