Does sex affect your sport performance?

Does sex affect your sport performance?

Probably not: Sexual tensions if relieved prior to sproting activities could be beneficial. If one has prolonged sex and tires themself, this could reduce sports performance. Unless your are a competetive athlete at a high performance level, consider the pros and cons and make your best judgement. I would doubt any serious deleterious effect.

Does abstaining from sex actually help with sports performance? (sexual transmutation?)

Does abstaining from sex actually help with sports performance? (sexual transmutation?)

No, except that...: Sexual activities don't alter sports performance, except that activities immediately before the starter's gun sounds might have an impact. Also, women abstaining from sex won't get pregnant, while those actively engaged in sexual activities may get pregnant... And be unable to compete in their events due to being pregnant.

Possible labral tear: In addition to problems with the rotator cuff, throwing athletes can injury or tear a cartilage structure inside the shoulder called a labrum. Rehab or surgery may be helpful.

At what age is it okay to let a child start to lift weights to help with sports performance?

At what age is it okay to let a child start to lift weights to help with sports performance?

Use a trainer: Weightlifting like many sports activities can be beneficial if done right & can produce significant injury if done wrong. Any pre-teen/teen should be supervised by a professional, preferably one certified in the area. Early training focuses on technique & low intensity weights. Power lifting & body building are not recommended until the kid reaches skeletal maturity (final height, b.O., shaves).

Could anemia affect my physical performances in sports?

Could anemia affect my physical performances in sports?

Absolutely: Sure - anemai is when you don't have enough red cells, which carry oxygen to your body. If you don't have enough oxygen carrying capacity, you can't get as much oxygen to tissues that need this during exercise. If can make you tired, and certainly affect performance. That's why blood dopers or those who use drugs to increase red cells have an advantage (aka lance armstrong).

Hi docs, would anemia affect my physical performances in sports?

Probably yes: Anemia impairs the oxygen transport capacity of the blood from lungs to muscles and all other organs and tissues in the body. This impairment has stronger consequences when the oxygen requirememts are increased like in physical exercise.

How much would smoking weed affect my performance in sports?

How much would smoking weed affect my performance in sports?

Worsens performance: Smoking cigarettes damages lungs (thus worsens sports performance), and cigarette smokers who also smoke marijuana make their lungs even worse. Researchers are uncertain how much lung damage is caused by marijuana-smoking if they don't smoke cigarettes. Sports performance is a purpose-driven activity, but mj does the opposite by altering perception, judgment, problem-solving, intensity, etc...

I'm an athlete, will taking prednisolone 50mg a day affect my performance in sports?

I'm an athlete, will taking prednisolone 50mg a day affect my performance in sports?

Why are you taking I: If the reason you are taking it is for asthma or a skin condition it may just increase your appetite and allow you to participate without worsening allergies. Discuss the prescription in detail with your doctor as there are many side effects if you are taking it long term as opposed to just a few days or a couple of weeks.

It's: It's hard to justify treatment if her symptoms have resolved. However, she is a high end athlete, and her symptoms may be slight, but still affecting her. I would go back to her doctor and have her re-evaluated. Discuss treatment options. Good luck.

Is sex in the morning of a sports competition detrimental to athletic outcome? How long do physiological affects last?

Is sex in the morning of a sports competition detrimental to athletic outcome? How long do physiological affects last?

No: That's an old practice based on the assumption that you lose your hunger to win after engaging in sex. While you may feel much more relaxed/less stressed after sex, your drive to be competitive is yours alone. Thus, only your preparation for competition is what will determine the athletic outcome. Good luck, and train hard!

I didn't bleed the first time l had sex but felt pain. I was never really active in any sports. I'm stressed l need all possible causes?

I didn't bleed the first time l had sex but felt pain. I was never really active in any sports. I'm stressed l need all possible causes?

Penis caused pain.: The bleeding with first sex idea is overdone. Bleeding means there were little tears. If a woman has a healthy vulva, vagina, and hymen; if she is very stretchy; if she is happy and relaxed, with lots of natural lubrication; if a guy enters at a good angle, at the right spot; if he moves gently with small motions until all is well-lubricated and stretched out; there may not be tearing or bleeding.

I've been ridding a sport bike for a year now, since I've been ridding I've noticed that during sex the amount of sperm that comes out is almost none?

Bicycle Sperm Count: There are numerous conditions reported by bicycle riders that are associated with compression of the nerves and associated structures. These have had some popular but inappropriate names to mention here. Probably the first issue to address is a properly fitted seat with appropriate cut outs to accomodate the male genitalia.
