Before a sports competition: sex yes or sex no?

Like everything in life, it depends on people and how everyone manages their limits or permits

Health and Esthetics

In the world of sport, according to the opinion of experts, deportologists and coaches, there is an almost irrefutable assertion, which is to not have sex before a demanding sports competition.For various reasons it is discouraged to have sex during the 24 hours before a match. The arguments are several: it would decrease the player's ability to concentrate and power in the legs, add tiredness, burn valuable calories (between 300 and 700), which would impact immediate sports performance and performance.Also, there are experts who say otherwise: they will not have to do so.it increases self-esteem and releases endorphins, which generates relaxation, decreased anxiety levels and greater power of concentration by the lower degree of stress.Different it is, and I emphasize the words of Salvador Bilardo, coach of the Argentine national team between 1982 and 1990, who stated “I don't agree that football players don't have sex before the match, as long as the women are up.” What he advises is to do it in a measured manner. If you turn to the excessive, you would commit an excess that would lead to discouraging activity.Like everything in life, it depends on the people and how everyone manages their limits or permits. If one or two players cannot handle these limits at the time of the allowed sex, it will affect the performance of the team total. As the boundary between “doing right” and “doing wrong” is very diffuse, many coaches do not leave this possibility to the free will of athletes and forbid them to have sex before matches. They end up paying just for sinners.
