this is obviously going to be incredibly anecdotal but whatever so I had a pretty hard relapse/binge session earlier this month, and noticed that many of my lifts struggled GREATLY during this episode. I've heard many people over the months speculate as to whether or not pmo affects gains at the gym, and this may at least attempt to quantify those questions Spoiler this graph shows my progress in bench press, which has been one of my focuses. the relapse was september 2nd and the binge lasted about a week. Sets were constant throughout the excersises, as well as sleep, diet, and alcohol intake. other workouts of mine have suffered similar drop offs in improvement again, super anecdotal, but I think it's obvious that there are certain physical ramifcations to pmo, especially given the sharp decrease in energy people oftentimes allude to when they reset.
