Get regular physical activity
Robins said he encourages men to get regular exercise because it helps reduce stress, makes men feel better about themselves and benefits their long-term health.
While being physically active is beneficial, some studies have suggested that overly intense exercising and strenuous training schedules in men, such as triathletes and marathon runners, may be detrimental to their fertility.
Researchers have also looked at whether bike riding can affect sperm, because the sport involves long periods of sitting in a position that increases scrotal temperatures as well as bouncing and vibrations that could cause trauma to the testicles. (A few studies have suggested that long-distance truck drivers may also have more fertility problems for similar reasons as avid male cyclists.)
One study found that men who attended fertility clinics and reported they rode bicycles for at least five hours a week were more likely to have low sperm counts and poor sperm motility compared to men who did other forms of exercise and those who did not exercise.
Other research has suggested that bike riding in men is linked with a higher risk for erectile dysfunction. But there's little data on whether or not cycling actually impacts sperm function, Robins said.
