Winning Increases Testosterone - Why You Should Spar To Win!

What is your take on this?

Personally I try to win my sparring rounds, because it is natural for me to do so, but I have learned to control myself so as to learn more from sparring.

I was interested to see though that study, that confirmed that it is actually good for you to win.

kozcygin has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Personally, I'd still focus on learning more from sparring than just winning. Sure, increased T production would be nice, but does that help your technique? Doubtful, IMO...

I'd just win when I can and focus on learning more from my sparring sessions. All the benefits of increased T production might be nice, but I have a feeling that greatly improving your technique by losing might be more beneficial.

If you want to increase your T production, there are more ways than just winning in sparring to do so. This way you can up your T production and improve your technique... Win win I'd say..

Frankly, as someone who trains, I found this piece demonstrates a very particular misunderstanding about the way we go about training.

Spar to win, for sure. If you're not thinking about the sparring session with the fight mentality, then you've lost the point.

The "spar to learn" conception is what this guy clearly doesn't get. You learn during the technical portions of a class, sparring is about application, which is about winning.

If I've spent the class working on my spinning back kick, when we spar I'm going to work on slipping the back kick in. I'm looking to win, but also playing with a new technique I've added to the arsenal.

This article makes it sound like a sparring session to expand our game and a sparring session we want to win cannot occur in the same set of rounds. They're not mutually exclusive.

So, the guy with the highest testosterone levels is always the better fighter? Good to know.

This sounds like the obnoxious guy that never listens, learns, or throws less than 100% trying to justify himself. Don't be that guy.
