Intuitively, I think that a total decon would be a better choice, as long as it isn’t setting you back to zero gains. I would think that a total decon will set you back closer to a baseline of stimulus needed to initiate gains than a deload, which in the long run seems to me to allow a longer total growth period…but of course thats all my best guesses at this stage.
Good thread guys.
As long as you edge or have sex consistently (say 3-5 times a week) during a decon, it would be somewhat hard to lose your gains, IMO. Also, IMO, the body has a need to keep the gains if its being stimulated almost daily yet its not being worked out like a PE session. That way, it can decondition yet still keep the blood flowing and be “active”. Of course, too much edging would probably be bad, also. If the penis rarely gets stimulated during a decon, I think that’s counterproductive and that’s how people lose gains. Of course, these gains are usually resurrected.
