Some not so obvious tricks for gains
Maybe these are obvious, I dunno. Don’t care. I’m logging this for myself so I can read it later and say to the voices in my head, I wrote that!
To which this one voice says, Murphkerkl. ~We~ wrote that, you idget. We are Saul!
I guess they’re right.
Anyway, we see a lot of advice about rest days (GROWTH days) and over-training, how these can affect gains. We argue consistency and intensity, and we discuss technique and injury, and we espouse heat and cool down routines as unskippable steps to a larger piece of wood.
A couple of things I see tickled frequently are porn and masturbation and maybe even sex. Certainly a correlation between these and gains, but not from the act themselves. Mostly, these affect EQ, and that can affect your exercises. We’ve discussed it.
I haven’t poked much into the supplement forums, but I have seen certain foods and herbs pitched for gains. It might be worth a look-see for me and for anyone else who hasn’t already nosed around in the pharm-posts to see if there is something to all those jazzy chemicals. But I don’t mean pharms or herbs, either. Those are pretty obvious.
One thing that’s not very obvious, but that I’ve seen mentioned, is hydration. I always stay hydrated, so that’s never an issue, but keeping your body fluidized is certainly a hidden key to any sort of health-related activity. Same with diet. Keep yourself well-fed and well-watered.
Another not-so-obvious thing is alcohol consumption. I can’t say there is a direct link between gains and ROH (that’s the general organic symbol for an alcohol), but there is a link between EQ and booze, and there is a link between EQ and PE. So easing off the booze can only help. Having a few might not hurt, either, but if it jacks with your erections, then your PE will suffer.
Same goes for other recreational poisons and brownies.
You also need enough sleep. A lot of PE requires a well-rested body, especially for the +70% erection exercises. So get your rest.
Along with sleep comes a clear head. Back to the porn and drugs and alcohol, which clog your head. When you are PE’ing, you need to find a ~zone~ and settle into the exercise. Much like sex, that means a quiet, private place with no distractions. That means a period of time where you will not be disturbed. That means no alcohol or drugs and a well-rested body, and low stress from work and life and relationships.
We also discuss various lubes. The right lube makes your job smoother, a lot more fun, and allows for that clear-headedness required for a solid workout.
Another thing I don’t think I’ve ever seen mentioned is opposable thumbs. I think that’s an egregious oversight. Having thumbs is critical, just behind stretching our clitoris into a tiny penis during those first few gestational weeks as we plot our escape from the only vagina we never ever want to be in again.
Speaking of gestation, I’m really glad our nipples don’t turn into something like extra penises or some such, that it’s just the vagina morphing into a penis and the ovaries into balls and everything else is pretty much the same for boys and girls. Just imagine. We should all be thankful we don’t have pecker-boobs or we’d be jacking off non-stop because once you blew one, the other two would need a turn and so it goes.
