Description

In this episode of Quah (Q & A), Sal, Adam & Justin answer Pump Head questions about how and when should one use “cheat” reps, how to adapt workouts to fit a physical job, avoiding sex or masturbation at least 5 days before a competition to keep testosterone high, and whether regular chiropractic adjustments help with improving mobility.

  • #Quah question #3 – As a collegiate track and field athlete one of my coaches told us not to have sex or masturbate at least 5 days before a competition, because it would keep our testosterone high which would help us perform better. Is there truth to this? (52:35)
