Soooo there is a tournament coming up in two months, and some people have been telling me thats its good to remain abstinent two months before the tournament, and that it'll help. Is this true and why? Also... does it absolutely have to be two months... this is probably gonna more difficult than the match itself.

Garbage. I doubt if Mike Tyson was abstinent for any length of time in his career, and he seemed to do fine.

Dear Heritik:



Oh brother are you being sold a ~bill of goods~. Look if you are talking about helping YOURSELF... ok, spend the time training ! If you are talking about abstinence with/from someone ELSE... very different issue.

Imposing a period of celebacy <sp.?> can be good, learning to control our impulses is truly discipline. But there is no need to engage in this type of thing. Finding someone to help us relax can be a wonderful thing.

Old wives tale, good for serious discipline but unnecessary unless you are entering a monestary. Might consider abstaining a few hours BEFORE the tournament but question the need beyond that level...

Oh honey...you won't mind if we don't.... for the next two months will you....

Jeff(I'd have to defend myself for real...ducking front kicks)

I'm like a sex camel. As of yet it hasn't helped me bring home the gold.

Humps, lumps, bumps?

Well...at least I understand now why ring fighters are so mean, mad and in a hurry to get the fight over.

Dont abstain- you want your mind on the fight come the tournament. Turn up a little 'tense', a ring-card girl passes close enough to smell her perfume and 'wham' you will be on her leg like a randy dog!

This will lead to disqualification, prosecution, and a cleaning bill for her tights.

Be a lover and a fighter my friend

Pat Croce (fitness center business guru and previous owner of the 76'ers) says that a little "fun" before your match can help you.
