ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsBreak ups are bad and seemingly the one advice you always get post your break up, is keeping your distance from your ex-girlfriend. Have you heard your friends always tell you "whatever you do bro, just don't hook up with your ex, move on man"? Well, that advice is valid and legit only because you want to forget the past and move forward and maybe give someone else a chance. But there is a lingering feeling deep inside you, which probably still connects to your ex, and it's kinda inevitable and there is nothing you can do to contain that feeling really. © MensXP There may come a time where you will bump into your ex at a party or a bar, and if you haven't seen each other for long, you'll either ignore each other's respective presence or rekindle long lost conversations. Most likely, it's the latter and sometimes, those conversations could bring about latent feelings and the sexual pleasure you both derived from each other. Yes, sleeping with an ex is as common as the common cold and many of us indulge in it, and feel either ashamed or angry the next day or know for a fact that feelings for them still remain. But what if I told you, sleeping with an ex is not that bad, after all? Yes, you read that right. According to some recent research from Wayne State University, having *** with your ex might not be such a bad idea, in fact, the research argues that it may even be a 'good' idea. © MensXP The study was conducted in two parts and it analysed the daily experiences and activities of 113 individuals who'd recently broken up or were going through a break-up. Two months after the break-up, they were given a questionnaire to fill. The questionnaire asked if they'd tried to have physical contact with their ex and if they were emotionally attached to them and how they felt, every day, after they'd had some form of physical contact with their ex. The second part was somewhat similar, where 372 participants were asked to take a survey, which asked them similar questions about physical contact with their ex's and their level of attachments with them. The result was quite fascinating actually. Rather than expecting that sleeping with an ex is emotionally turbulent and can leave feelings to linger on, hindering your ability to move on, while prolonging the heartbreak, the researchers found that sleeping with an ex really didn't stop the day-today healing process. The participants who pined after their exes were more likely to have *** with them and even after that they didn't feel heartbroken or emotionally stunted, or even upset. In fact, hooking up with their ex, left them feeling more positive, every day. © MensXP "This research suggests that societal handwringing regarding trying to have *** with an ex may not be warranted. The fact that *** with an ex is found to be most eagerly pursued by those having difficulty moving on, suggests that we should perhaps instead more critically evaluate people's motivations behind pursuing *** with an ex." - the lead researcher, Stephanie Spielmann said in an interview with an international publication. But that being established, it's always necessary to know where you stand with your feelings and your emotions. There may have been research conducted to establish that *** is good with the ex but more often than not, it's subjective. If you feel mangled up and distraught after any form of physical contact with them or if you feel that physical intimacy with an ex acts as a deterrent for you to move on successfully, then you have to weigh your decision well. But if you think like the rest of the subjects from the research, your feelings are intact and you feel good about it, then, of course, go for it. But remember, don't have any expectations. if you're sleeping with an ex, in order to win them back, it may lead to more complications later and leave you more heartbroken than before!
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsThere are times in the evidence-based fitness industry when a certain study does the rounds and makes a bold claim of a certain legal compound or drug proving to be as efficient as anabolic androgenic steroids to increase muscle mass or make a person lose body weight. The HMB study was one such dubious study which did the rounds last year. A week ago, another such study has come to the surface where it has shown that Sildenafil has been touted as potentially anabolic as 200 mg shot of Testosterone for muscle building. Study: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4076819/ What Is Sildenafil? The Active Compound In The Blue Pill We Know As Viagra © Pinterest So does Viagra really have as much potential as a 200 mg shot of testosterone for muscle building? Whenever such a study makes the rounds, it is always better to get into as much detail as possible before you start supplementing or investing in any such supplements or muscle aids. Though the spike in muscle protein synthesis is impressive, as you can see in the above table, there are a few pointers which raise skepticism about the findings of this study. 1. The sample size and the period of the study. This study had 11 men and the duration of the study lasted only 15 days with the placebo vs. Viagra ingestion only lasted on an average of 8 days. 2. The average age of the men in the study. The placebo group had an average age of 44 ± 9 and the group that received Sildenafil was 55 ± 11. 3. Higher BMI and body fat ranges. The average BMI was 26.5 and the average body fat percentage was 30 to 33%. 4. The study only looked at mixed muscle protein synthesis. Not myofibril muscle protein synthesis where the actual answer would be found as to if Viagra does have any benefits in terms of muscle building. 5. You see similar increases in muscle protein synthesis on consumption of adequate protein alone. Now when you put things into context, though the study shows some significant increases in muscle protein synthesis, a few questions need to be answered: © Pinterest 1. What if the control group was changed? Would it change the impact of the Sildenafil? 2. What if you compare the spike in muscle protein synthesis to that of subjects who have an adequate protein consumption alone? 3. How long did the elevation in muscle protein synthesis last? Especially when you compare it with testosterone as testosterone spikes muscle protein synthesis lasts for days. 4. What if this study was replicated in healthier men or better, men who watch their diet and engage in regular resistance training as well? 5. Does it have any direct implication on myofibril muscle protein synthesis? All these questions need answering before a conclusive yes or a no as to does Sildenafil actually help with muscle building or not? And again, Viagra has been shown to have certain side effects as well which could impact certain individuals. Though the study shows some promising data and opens the doors for more controlled studies to be done in this area, the current body of evidence does not point towards benefits in terms of muscle growth. So do not yet go popping the pill before the workout as it may or may not have any confirmed benefits on muscle growth but it can definitely lead to some awkward moments at the gym.
