I'm a software engineer.

I started training with weights seriously about three years ago when my coworkers got me into CrossFit. Before that I'd been seriously into yoga.

I am by no means an expert but I am continually educating myself on fitness, and training myself. My ideal physique is strong and "functional". I want it all: strength, power, speed, and endurance. The only sport I play is tennis.

BW: 180lbs Bodyfat: ~13-14%

Current best lifts as of Dec. 2013(in pounds):

345 back squat (ass to grass)
405 deadlift
145 shoulder press
145 overhead squat
225 squat clean
14 strict pullups

I can't get full text on 4. 5 is terrible study as well. It uses a survey followed by a single T assay to correlate sexual activity with high T. But there are many cofounding factors here. For one, people with naturally high T are probably more likely to have a lot of sex or masturbate. This doesn't mean masturbation raises T, which is the unfortunate conclusion that the authors have drawn.

This is incorrect. Links 2 and 3 above are not peer reviewed journals and don't properly cite any peer reviewed articles either, but three describes a study that only looked 10 hours past an orgasm event.

I think my questions explain my downvote. He is not a unique snowflake with special fitness needs. You can't go five clicks on this site or any other fitness site without finding exactly the information he's looking for.

I think so too! And i do think this lift can turn you into a beast. I can't think of a single person who can overhead squat big weight who isn't just in great shape.
