    I know it's not good. But I can't help it sometimes. Yes, it's the dopamine that do that good feeling. But on the other side, after orgasm you have a cocktail in your brain, that really destroy it. You don't have that while watching porn or masturbate. Orgasm is a Cumulation of dopamine spike, if it hits you , you would be recovering for 2 weeks. Just read about it. Masturbation is also making some substances and it give you MORE dopamine than just watching porn.
    If I could change in my PMO tracker I would remove P if I would fail, but you have to choose all three at once. So I'm really more concernet about masturbation and orgasm which is the very key for me.
    And besides I'm dealing with it pretty good. I'm less and less interested in those things. I haven't masturbate for 27 days so I think I am honest. I just have my weaker times, for example today I haven't watched anything yet and I don't plan to do it. All I can get is boner, I can't edge just from watching porn, so you're wrong in that thing.
    We have all the same aim, I don't want M O and P , but ask yourself what is most charming your body from those three? Cheers.

    and besides, you need dopamine, no matter where you would get it. When you don't have enough dopamine you'll gain Parkinsons disease for example. That's why you have night pollutions or you want to see some colors, or eat something sweet. It spikes it. And it's not all that bad , since without dopamine you would be sick.

    Maybe switch it up a bit? Try something new? Something you haven't done before? Just to spice things up and make things more exciting.

    I did, and I greatly enjoyed the variation with my gym partner! I struggle at leg workouts now, but that is because of the recent relapse, that's for sure.

    My exercise today:
    - Deadlifting
    - Two back-exercises whose name I cannot translate.
    - And classic bicep-curls with the bar.

    Really good workout with my gym buddy - we greatly enjoyed it! Took us 1 and 3/4 hours but we talked a lot. Great day!

    Today it was a rest day for me. I was on the gym yesterday - and my session was really productive, and really fun with my gym buddy!

    What I did today was some simple pull-ups with the bar I bought and some push-ups to stay warm. Nothing special - but gym session calls on the morrow!

    This is always the hardest part about having a workout partner--the accountability is great, but you end up talking for several minutes between sets.

    Chest day for me this morning: Incline bench / flat bench / weighted dips / and then an ab-circuit of decline situps, weighted knee raises, and plaaaaaaaaaank.

    Oh--and I had a KILLER leg day yesterday. For years, I've had a really jacked-up lower back. I used to be able to do huge squats, but I herniated a disc once (when I 24--I'm 40 now) and I haven't been able to do squats the same since. I had to adjust by using much, much lighter weight and even then I would still occasionally tweak my back. Anyway, I finally ponied up and bought a highly-reviewed weight belt on Amazon--HOLY CRAP, what a difference. I felt strong and was able to squat weight I haven't done in a long time. I used to always look at people with weight belts and I could never understand how they were supposed to help--but I totally get it now. I feel embarrassed that it took me this long to try one. Better late than never, though.

    Upper body day for me today.

    3 sets, 15 reps of:

    Lateral pull downs | chest press | chest press with incline | hanging leg raises | seated pulley rows | crunches machine | straight arm pull downs | triceps push downs | six ways | 2 x 1 minute plank | standing obliques | bicep curls | - aaand I think that was that.

    Today, I did pushups, situps, and pullups. Every other day I'm running. For some reason, the 'muscle' days give me a surge of unwanted, unproductive anger. Been awhile since I regularly worked out; so maybe that'll pass.

    Yeah, but it is simple enjoyable as hell, even if we talk. That's worth it, nothing is keeping us from having a superb exercise!
    About the belts: You think they are really worth it? My buddy bought one, and I tried it out when deadlifting. I could feel higher stability, and like how it was pressing my stomach back. I am deadlifting 120kg and squatting 110kg now - worth getting a belt?

    Awesome man - consistency is the key here!

    My post:
    Today I actually wanted to leave for the gym, but I ate too much when coming home and then I got insanely tired, decided to take a nap and then I woke up around two hours later, at 5:30PM. So I decided to rest this day mainly and prepare everything for the gym tmr, since it was too late for me to leave. Preparation is the key - and I prepared everything, even good snacks to eat before I go to the gym, so I won't over-feed myself.

    What I did today was some bicep-dumbbell exercises and shruges, nothing specially. On the morrow, it is gym time for sure - the day after that I cannot go, guaranteed, so, no excuses!

    I try to get to the gym as early as possible, because after the clock hits noon, there is no way I'm going to go. Waaaay too many people in the evening and I'm waaay too tired. :D

    I mean, I'm sold. I never understood how they were supposed to work, but now I totally get it. You have to cinch the belt as tight as possible, so it gives your core something to resist against--that's what helps stabilize your spine. Check out this article:

    https://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/lessons-in-weight-belts-how-and-why-to-use-them.html

    In a nutshell, I'm in 100% agreement that belts are a huuuuuge help when you're lifting at near maximal effort and you don't want spinal flexion. I wear a belt when I'm doing squats always, no matter what, just because I've had back issues in the past and I don't want to push it. But if you're squatting a weight that you can do 8 reps of without too much trouble, you probably don't need it as much. I'm on a weight lifting plan that has me doing 4-6 reps at most ... so I'm using a lot more weight than I normally would. Basically, if you're planning on finding out what your 1-rep max is on squats, I'd make sure you have a weight belt for that.

    Today was back day for me:

    Pull-ups / Seated rows / T-bar rows / Pullover machine / Renegade rows (where you're basically doing a pushup while holding dumbbells, then bring one dumbbell up at a time, like a one-arm row).

    What are six ways?

    I've heard the phrase 'six ways to Sunday', but I'm pretty sure that's not the same thing. :)

    I'll join you and take the challenge to start tomorrow( I'm getting ready for bed now) to do some exercise every day of my 90 day reboot. It's been so long since I consistently exercised that I need to renew the habit. Good going.

    Yeah, that's usually me. Before noon, unless I have school or other stuff to do. I habe holiday after less than two weeks, then it will be 5/7 days gym and always before noon! The longer I wait, the harder it gets.

    Cheers, I'll check some belts out!
