This is an interesting idea. For those of you who have seen Choke, Rickson Gracie abstains for something like 2 weeks. My understanding (as I've heard from a couple of high school wrestlers) is that it makes you want to kill someone.

Remember that this is changing your mental state through manipulating your hormone levels. It's all about the state of mind that you want to have during the fight. Some guys like to be angry and like to be aggressive.

Feeling like you want to tear the other guys head off (after all, he's the reason why you didn't get any for all that time) has it's advantage, but I find that when I let my hormones and my endorphine levels control me, when I cave in and let my emotions run a fight, I get sloppy and stupid.

Personally, I don't want to deprive myself of something that was typical for me because I don't like the idea of changing my hormone levels leading up to a fight. That isn't to say that sexual activity immediately before fight is healthy, so maybe take two days before when you are cutting weight and thinking about the fight, but don't allow the hormones to build up over long periods of time.

The body is like a machine, and last thing that I ever want to do is change the mechanics of that machine at the last minute. If it has been working for me in the gym, I want to maintain that hormone level and that adrenaline level through the fight.

Does having sex have a negative effect on your performance? Only if you need that hormone buildup to perform at your best.

How long should you abstain for? That's up to you. I usually take 3 or 4 days where I'm just focussed on the fight, and not distracting myself with :cough: physical needs. That's just me, though.

So...... whens your next fight

But yeah I have herd that too, the whole thing about not having sex for a week with guys i believe is more mental then physical but I still would give myself a couple days off for the fight.

I don't think it makes much difference.

BUT Mohammed Ali is reported to abstain up to 6 weeks prior to a fight and he obviously knew what he was doing.

I personally feel if I get it all out of my system before something big I have a much clearer and lighter head then if I abstained for a week.

And if I do abstain its like Im goin crazy and let my mentality get ahead of my strategy. But then again Im talkin about soccer and dont know if its the same before a fight.

I heard one of the gracies doesn't have any sex or jerk off 2 weeks before the fight because of the loss of testoterone it can cause resulting in a loss of energy. I know when I clean my pipes before I go to the gym I tend to not train as hard as I could if i didn't

have her get on top and do all the work and it will have no adverse affects on your legs. as mentioned above, you'll also have a clear head - fight smart, not mad. i wouldn't go getting your freak on an hour before a fight but i don't see a problem with getting some the night before.

I wouldn't recommend it the day of the fight, or the night before. Otherwise, I don't see a problem.
