Temporary celibacy is for wussy

This highlights the difference between you and I my friend...you ride to win a race, I ride to get laid. Different goals and priorities.

I went to a seminar a few years ago that was given by a former member of USPS. Turns out this guy
used to live near Cipo so they would train together. This guy complained that it was annoying to train with him because he was always stopping in the towns they passed through so he could visit his lady friends. The guy wasn't sure what was meant exactly by "lady friends", but he said that Cipo called them his "training partners". Whatever that meant.


I think Cipo is married and has a kid now...

[QUOTE=domestique]This same question was asked on cycling news a couple months ago:

"Sex and cycling
My question is to ask if there is a correlation between sex and cycling performance. (My personal experience in this area is mixed) Basically does performance on the bike diminish with sex and does increased sexual activity cause an increased loss in cycling ability.

Finally, is there a recovery period required to restore full cycling performance (post sex).

Jim
Sydney

Steve Hogg replies:

For an unscientific answer I quote well known (to Australians) Rugby League coaching legend Jack Gibson. In reply to a similar query to yours he answered "It's not sex before a game that is detrimental to performance, but rather staying out all night looking for it."

"

Superb answer and soooooooooo true

I would try this, but I am not sure I could bring myself to an orgasm during an interval. On the trainer, maybe, if I could get some outside help.

Man! I wish I could recall the study that showed men who sustained from sex for three weeks followed by (a little help from Mother Palm and her 5 sisters) incresed testosterone production.

I'll try and find it.

But, I have no problem trying this out since I'm married with children. I think I'm working on week 2 as we speak. I'll let you know next week how I feel - after the lonely shower scene.

^^ that makes me wonder what kind of guy can get off with needles stuck in him continuously drawing blood, and a horde of nurses/doctors watching and monitoring his approach to ecstasy.

I think all we have to do is ask "virgin-cyclist". if sex really does hold back cycling, then "virgin-cyclist" must be riding the 53x11 fulltime!

You guys seem to forget one important part of the no sex equation. If your wife, in my case, races too her undersides are a bit tender from all the time in the saddle as well so you may not have a choice in the matter. But if you race the same calendar, its oh so much fun when you're on a rest week.

Sometimes it *is* tough to sleep on rest weeks...

sorry to disappoint but i have to report a negative on the 53x11 full time...maybe if it was downhill the whole way

Found this if you believe in this stuff: Chinese medicine places huge emphasis on a form of energy called "jing", also a morpheme denoting "essence" or "spirit" which one attempts to develop and accumulate, jing is sexual energy and is considered to dissipate with ejaculation so ************ is considered "Energy Suicide" amongst those who practice this art. According to Chi Kung theory, energy from many pathways/meridians becomes diverted and transfers itself to the sexual organs during sexual excitement, the ensuing orgasm and ejaculation will then finally expel the energy from the system completely. The Chinese proverb, a drop of semen is equal to ten drops of blood illustrates this. That's what EPO is for!

But then again, lions mate 20-40 times a day for several days during a mating bout and hell...they still got enough energy to go hunting after! And some people wonder why lions are called the king of the jungle

But whatever, they are married, look happy together, and they've got a gorgeous kid.

King of the jungle? I think it's the female lions that do most of the hunting while the males sit around on their bum

Heck yes. The male lions have it made

Except for the whole fighting to the death thing. That's sort of a bummer, but it's free food!

Which, strangely enough bears at least a passing resemblance to my rationale for joining the Army...

Ha! I say. nothing like getting a hummer on your way to a race.
Sean Kelly was famous for racing a very full schedule from early spring to late fall, year in and year out. Upon hearing of Kelly's pre-race abstinence, another Irish racer (Paul Kimmage? Martin Early?) commented that, "By my reckoning, that means that Kelly's wife is still a virgin!"
