Athlean-X Trainer Jeff Cavaliere Reveals If Having Too Little Sex Kills Gains
Since launching his YouTube channel in 2006, strength coach and Athlean-X founder Jeff Cavaliere has answered questions on everything from Bruce Lee’s core workout to how to build bigger arms with dumbbells. But in his latest video, he looks at the effect of sex on muscle growth.
Cavaliere decided to bring up the topic after a follower asked if too little sex was killing the man’s earnings. Turns out Cavaliere has a lot of thoughts on the subject.
First, Cavaliere said that while research on the subject is sparse, existing studies indicate that sex provides a 10% increase in testosterone, which to the layman seems quite significant. But, he says, “when you realize that a man’s testosterone fluctuates 20 to 30 percent, up and down, in any given day, it’s not so much anymore.”
Still, sex gives a small boost to T levels, but the increase is transient (lasting about 30-60 minutes after sex). What impact will this really have on muscle growth? Not much, he argues.
The subscriber came to believe that too little sex was killing his earnings after his friends told him why he wasn’t as horny as them because he wasn’t having as much sex as them. Cavaliere dispels this notion, arguing instead that the man’s friends fell victim to the chicken-and-egg dilemma. Did the man friends increase their T levels exponentially by having a lot of sex, and therefore can build more muscle, or did they always have naturally higher T levels, and therefore have more sex and make more gains as a result?
Cavaliere ends his video by dismissing the argument that too much sex is actually the biggest obstacle to earnings.
We’ve all heard the apocryphal saying “women make legs weak” or the idea that if you have sex you’ll lose the edge, aggression, drive and drive that propel athletes to victory and men towards more gains. However, Cavaliere argues that having sex can reduce stress levels, improve sleep and, from a recovery perspective, men are better positioned to make gains if they have sex rather than having sex. to avoid.
Overall, Cavaliere says the key to making gains is working out rather than worrying if you’re having too much or too little sex.
