How Can Exercise Help You Choose Your Baby's Gender?

June 08, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 141

Did you know that research shows many, many factors go into deciding what the gender of your baby will be? That's right... it's more than just which lucky sperm reaches the egg first! There are a lot of techniques you can use to conceive a boy or conceive a girl, and your exercise routine can be one of them!

Why Exercise Matters

No natural gender selection technique can give you a 100% guarantee that you're going to get the gender of your choice, but they can help greatly improve your odds. Some have a huge impact (like diet) and some have a smaller but definite impact if you want to use them. Exercise is like that.

Exercise can make a difference in a couple of ways. First, exercise can drastically impact your hormones. Secondly, exercise can make your body think that times are tough or that things are going well.

Studies have shown conclusively that hormone levels in both mothers and fathers can have a big impact on the "gender ratio." The gender ratio is the percentage of boys born vs. girls born. As you know, it's generally right around 50% boys and 50% girls. But studies have shown that moms and dads who have higher levels of various hormones can change that percentage.

Exercise is a good way to increase hormone levels.

Resistance Training

Heavy resistance training, where you're working with a lot of weight and pushing your muscles increases testosterone, the male hormone. When you increase testosterone, you boost your chances of conceiving a son. Women and men with higher testosterone have more boys.

Women who have high levels of estrogen also have higher chances of having a son. Estrogen and testosterone tend to increase together in women who are weight lifting. You don't have to bulk up and look like a male body builder to boost your testosterone. In fact, it's very hard for women to "bulk up" like that. Women who lift heavy weights tend to get a more toned body... they make more testosterone but not so much they get "bulky." Training with heavy weights, or even your own body weight (push ups and pull ups) are great ways to give your testosterone a boost.

Plenty of Cardio

The opposite technique is to break down muscle mass. You do this with lots of cardio workouts that just use calories and don't ever bulk up the muscles. This style of exercise also has another effect... it makes your body think that times are tough and there aren't enough calories and nutrition to take care of you.

These effects combine to make it more likely that you'll have a girl. You're burning a lot of calories and reducing muscle mass (look at long distance marathon runners, who are often very, very lean). You're sending a signal to your body that times are tough. Girls require fewer calories throughout life, so you're more likely to conceive a girl. Your hormone levels also drop, increasing chances of a girl.
