is it true that sex is bad for the legs because i tried out this theory today at sparring and my legs felt really heavy and weak what do you guys think?

It's never affected me. In fact the release of endorphins actually relieves a lot of stress and tension.

It probably affects different people differently. Never hurt me, although I will say that sex after winning a fight is awesome, and that I wouldn't want to risk missing out on that by having sex the night before if it decreased my chances of winning the fight.

So I guess you shouldn't violate the instant gratification principle, or you will pay!! ;)

it's no myth, it's different for alot of people
i for one would prefer abstaining from sex before a fight, i just feel stronger/better

it's all mental

Physically it helps to have sex a night before a fight.

Psychologically I guess it differs from person to person.

If you have sex you are more relaxed, you have one thing your always after out of your away.

But at the same time if you didnt have any, you might be more edgy and angry that might help you in a fight.

like alot of ppl said already it differs from person to person. if u have a tendency to get tense in the ring sex the night before a fight could be a good idea. if u dont have that problem going without sex will increase your testosterone levels which will make u more aggressive.

mentally its the same thing, some ppl feel more level headed after a good unloading while others feel more motivated having sacrificed sex to get the win.

its good not to have sex during the roughest weeks of training though, u will get more energy and need less sleep in addition to ofcourse being able to focus much more on training. when i decide im not gonna have sex and get women temporarily out of my head its like unlocking 3/4 of my brain capacity. i tend to get more things done in and out of the gym lol.

I was actually talking about this to my trainer today, I asked if he abstained during his career. He said he didn't think it's a case of "weakening legs", but a case where you want to be mentally ready for a fight and meaner and you take out all your frustrations on the opponent.

Muhammad Ali screwed a ton of women before he fought Joe Bugner, but then again Ali was uber-talented.

Julio cesar chavez from 1993 and on started going out with some fine ass mexican artists and models like salma hayek and carmen campusano fine *****es and you could tell by 1993 chavez's legs and foot movment that he had from 1984-1990 were GONE.

on the contrary Mike Tyson vs. Trevor Berbick

the buster fight was a result of Tyson barely training. His sparring partner even dropped him. IMO tyson shoulda won that fight anyway with that long ass count, in addition to that, buster was up at 10. Usually if the guy aint up by 8 fight is over. In this fight tyson was up at 8/9, but this is for a different thread...

I sparred a couple of hours after having sex, and let me tell you...it was horrible! I had no stamina my legs were weak and I felt like quitting in the middle of the 3rd round, good thing the guy I was sparring was a buddy of mine who knew what was going on.

I really don't know about fighting a day after you've had sex, I wouldn't do it because of that experience I had.
