I am worried to train with weights after hearing that the penis will shrink as a result of it, I was briefed by an ex-recreational bodybuilder. Can you explain this in detail?
Every man is unique in his own way! Some lucky guys … some long, some short, some white and some black. It’s no surprise that you will be shocked when someone says that your penis will shrink when you train with weights or lifts weights; I am sure some guys will not even pass a gym in fear of losing some inches from their precious organ.
This rumor of shrinking penis when training with weights is absolute rubbish which has no evidence behind it. Despite the countless slang terms for the penis and man’s boasting about their sexual strength, the penis has no bones and no muscles in it. Inside the penis are three spongy tubes, two on top and one on the bottom. The bottom one also has the urethra running through it.
It is hilarious when I think of this, as I do not understand how the penis will simply shrink or grow with lifting weights, as in the gym or in an exercise ground people do not go around working out their genitals. If you would want to go on a wonder world of working out your genitals in a gym or exercise ground still there is no reason for it to grow (hypertrophy) as there are no muscles in the penis, and there is no reason for it to shrink either as there is no muscle in the penis to cause atrophy too.
The rumors which are out for decades about weight lifting having an impact on your penis size has no proven evidence at all. There is no study which confirms a direct linkage with penis shrinkage and weightlifting or weight training of any type. The rumors on penis shrinkage is out due to illegal path athletes take up and the consequences they face using illegal substances called anabolic steroids.
It is clear that this rumor is out from with the impact on weightlifters and bodybuilders who uses anabolic steroids! Surprised!! Yes when a weightlifting athlete, bodybuilder who trains excessively with weights or any other athlete is on anabolic steroids it can have an impact on his reproductive organs. Further explained as below!
As we all know, steroids are medically generated substances used to for various medical purposes. Steroids are widely used by bodybuilders and other athletes like weightlifters and many more illegally although the use of steroids requires a prescription from an authorized physician in all cases.
Every man secrets a hormone called testosterone, which is responsible for physical growth in puberty. Anabolic steroids chemically develops the effects of testosterone which makes the man’s sexual features develop fast, therefore a lot of man have used anabolic steroids to increase their penis size and erection.
Unfortunate that most of them do not understand the consequences of using it, most steroids permanently damage the organs of the body including the reproductive organs which is most predisposed to damage. This is because anabolic like hormones are also produced in male reproductive organ, the use of steroid can cause temporary or permanent impotence, the effects can be so strong that even increased sexual desire will not make the penis erect, and in worst cases the penis can erect and still cannot serve the purpose. It’s understood that a penis will remain smaller if the man lacks sexual desire, and when it comes to the steroid users penis size remains diminished because of increased chances for erectile dysfunction, impotence directly caused as side effects of steroids.
For the steroid users it is SAD BUT TRUE that when the damage is done the efforts to bring it back to normal will be futile.
Ps: This is indeed sad news that people pass false information regarding exercise.
