Some say that sex (with partner or masturbation) would promote the development of muscle mass, others on the contrary, says that sexual activity limits muscle growth ... Some fear that masturbation or sex ejaculation by "normal" testosterone and thus lose and- would limit the chances of reaching the muscle that they desire. What is the truth? Is sex "harmful" or on the contrary, can be helpful in bodybuilding?
From the beginning I want to assure you that sex in no case can be harmful, whether practiced as a partner or masturbation. Although the physiologically there is an increase in the level of testosterone in the blood, this does not mean that sexual activity has a significant effect on the development of muscle mass. Once orgasm and ejaculation occurs suddenly decreases testosterone levels to normal. Perhaps seeing through books or online chart this decrease in testosterone levels, and some might imagine that the amount of it is lost through ejaculation. This does not happen, so you can quietly sex in this regard. It must be said that a normal sex life can not only be beneficial for sport and for muscle growth.
Regarding masturbation, if years ago all kinds of stories circulated about the "truly horrendous" its effects on health, modern medicine has shown that masturbation has positive effects on health.
According to a study by dr. Graham Giles of the Cancer Council Victoria in Melbourne, a very effective method of preventing prostate cancer it is represented even by masturbation. Masturbation common, especially between 20 and 30 years old age prevents installation prostate cancer. Australian researchers have assumed that this benefit was due to the premature elimination of substances with postential carcinogen that accumulates in the prostate. Analyzing the results of a statistical study conducted on 1079 patients with prostate cancer and 1259 healthy men, observed that men who ejaculate frequently in his youth had a lower rate of cancer, and if you still got sick, they did form less aggressive disease.
Another beneficial effect of masturbation is firming pubococcigieni muscles, ie those muscles of the perineum (genital area) that if we interrupt contracting urinary stream. By improving muscle tone pubococcigieni obtain a longer orgasm (both male and female). Besides masturbation, there is another way to increase tone these muscles, which you can put into practice anytime. It is about Kegel exercises, ie rhythmic muscle contractions perineum while sitting on a chair or standing. Make this exercise daily and you will enjoy a longer and more enjoyable orgasm, but also will prevent prostate problems and installation.
