Sex does make you weaker on lifting days

Had sex twice (morning and afternoon). Went to the gym late afternoon. I felt so weak, took me 90 minutes instead of 60 to finish my workout and had to drop 5lbs off weights for all workouts. I had plenty of food and sleep.

Why so weak after sex? I don't want the stupid mental emotional response some studies/people answer this question with. Keep it scientific.

The things I could think of are you aren't eating or hydrating as much because you are busy having sex, you're immune system is fighting off any new things it came in contact with, or the fact that you nutted twice can lower libido. I like powerfvcking after working out.. especially an awesome leg workout.

You exercised before your workout, and wondered why the workout was harder?

You know you take lifting too serious when you have to question if sex is getting in the way of your routine

Never thought of sex as a workout, more like a warmup. Don't know about you.

But sex is always there, having a good lifting day is not. Well maybe other guys are not as awesome as me and sex is hard for them to have. Then your point makes sense.

I won't address the part where you imply that you're some sexual hero

A lot of people attribute bad workouts after sex to hormonal issues. A few studies have suggested that's not the issue.

I'd think, especially after having sex twice, the issue is that you had what equates to going jogging twice. Even with your sexual hero status, this will take a fair amount of your glycogen stores, leaving you with less energy to lift weights.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Thread title:
Hay guys, I'm great. Right?

Content:
Why is it that after I finish running a supermodel 6 way do like all my lifts go from 495 bench, 1035 DL and 450 OHP down to 490, 1030, and 445, respectively, of course?

Oh yeah, because I'm fvcking incredible and have sex more often than most men can blink in their lives.

Think about me.

Dwass, after his post you just quoted, I'd save the good helpful information for deserving members. ,

Studies show it can actually increase performance.

You should stop posting false information. That's 2 in the past day.

Just banged and I'm about to go indoor rock climbing. It will not affect me because I am not the one with the vagina.
