Exercise The Wrong Way = Testicular Damage
Look guys, these DOs & DON'Ts for weight lifting and exercising with varicocele WILL HELP. You don't have to follow all of it, but really get the idea: All of these tips help, independent of exercise type, be it:
✓DO A cool shower before a workout helps (but is not necessary)
✗Don’t No masturbation for minimum 2-3 hours pre-workout
✗Don’t No working out on a full stomach (give minimum 1-2 hours to digest)
✓DO Cooling underwear like STUD Briefs
✓DO Promote muscle balance and posture with your workout
✗Don’t No tight belts
✗Don’t No tight pants (around waist or crotch)
✗Don’t No tight underwear (unless specifically designed for varicocele)
✗Don’t No protein shakes or energy drinks during exercise
✓DO Stretch to promote muscular mobility (especially hip mobility)
✓DO Perform yoga inversion exercises to improve testicular blood circulation and cooling
✓DO A cooling shower post-workout is almost mandatory. Ideally, take a full-body cool shower (no discomfort required)
✗Don’t Shove your testicles into hot heat-trapping underwear and pants for hours
But... The Most Important Things to Consider:
