How badly do your testicles need to get hit to prevent childbirth?

How badly do your testicles need to get hit to prevent childbirth?

No one answer: The answer is not how hard, but the damage done. I've seen cases where the injury was actually very mild, but hit an important blood supply just right or caused a testicle to twist (called torsion) and there was loss of function. On the other hand, i've seen some pretty swollen, bruised testicles with a lot of acute injury that went on to heal fine and remained functional. ...Read more

What can I do to lose weight that's fun to do?

What can I do to lose weight that's fun to do?

Fun: Losing weight is a big deal and can be either tedious or fun. I found that a group gym class (I like the BodyPump and similar programs) are fun. Often the same people are in the class week after week, and they become friends and help encourage further participation. If you have any health concerns, however, your practitioner should evaluate whether a particular gym program is appropriate. ...Read more

How to build strength to do pull ups? I can't even do one pull up an I don't know how to increase strength to do it?

Start slowly: Pull-ups are a difficult and complex exercise. I would start by doing push-ups - once you can do 20-30 regular pushups (not "girl" push ups) then start working on "diamond" push ups (put your hands close together on the floor so the fingers make a diamond). Build up on how many of those you can do. Then move to supported pull-ups (with a chair underneath your feet). Keep working at it! ...Read more

Can you let me know how many sit ups should I do a day to get ripped abs ?

Reduce body fat: Definition has more to do with having very little bodyfat, no more on your trunk than on the back of your hand. This has little to do with working particular muscle groups. You know this already, and you may also discover that working abs against the strongest possible resistance, as at a pulldown station, may increase their size & hardness more than a great number of reps. Glad you are doing this. ...Read more

Inches, right?: You can't. Nothing you can do will make it longer, especially not some herbal / food / gimmick / fun therapy. What you can do is learn to be a better lover. If you have 3.0" or more, you can satisfy most partners. A shorter man is harder, is compatible with more women, and has an easier time stimulating her best nerve endings which are in front.
