Staying away from sex and boxing.....W
I was watching a show called 'Life and times'. In canada it is essentially, the life and times of great canadians.
They were talking about George Chuvalo(cant spell his name right, sorry) the boxer.
At some point they talked about Mohammed ali and one guy they were interviewing said "He asked all the right questions, what his diet should be, how long to abstain from sex...and so one.''
Why do boxers do this? Is aggression something to do with it?
Is it the same with MMA?
Because sex drains your energy, makes you feel peaceful.
Rickson Gracie said 3 weeks in his Choke documentary.... Thats just insanity, I'm not sure if I believe that.
My current rule is 4 days... By then I'm usually ready to kill.
Can you quote other people too?
Do you think Gracie was talking strictly the profesional arena?
Hah. Abstaining from sex. OOOOOOKAY. You kids let me know how that works out for you.

Honestly, if refraining from sex would improve your strength and aggression in a competition, then married men would be kicking around all of you slack jawed faggots.
And those married men that were thinking of posting how you get the booty all the time as part of some ill-conceived rebuttal, please remind yourself that there is no innocent lie and then smack yourself. Face or booty. Whatever.
Well, suposedly, the testosterone level in men tend to drop after sex, draining energy and violent desire for the recently-laid.
On the other hand I´ve heard the it´s the opposite on women, their testosterone level raises.
It is an urban legend that in the Barcelona Games (1992), female athletes were looking for men to shag hours before they had to compete, to gain that extra push.
We´ve had some threads on this before, BTW.
I suppose you were very disappointed with Madrid not hosting 2012 Olympics. :)
i watched brainiac the other day where they did a test with a bunch of soccer players. they played half a game, then 1 team had sex with their GF's, and the other team played scrabble.
players were rated on their performance each half by a2 commentators or national coaches, i forget which. the team that had sex did better the second half than they did in the first while the scrabble playing team was rated about the same.
the show is about as scientific (at best) as mythbusters, and is more about entertainment, so take it as that, but I do not recall what their theory was for having done better.
You have no idea, man, you have no idea... :sad:
