wow. after about 10 days of absolutley no sexual activity, i went to the gym for the second time during that period, and i couldn't believe my strength. For the first time ever I was able to lift almost as much on the second sets as i was on the first (and this is during 5 rep max phase). This is also with only 2 min rest between sets! Also, my girlfriend keeps mentioning how my body felt hot (temperature wise) and how she could sense my vitality throuhg my veins. And mental focus is incredible! I've also noticed body odour changes - but can't be sure - maybe it's the heat, but my armpits have intensified in odour - to me it smells like urine, but according to her, my body smells nice. I spoke to a friend who's a martial artist and he told me this is normal and that ur testosterone rises when u abstain, but u shouldn't abstain for too long coz ur libido will dull. well i did some googling and came up with this on pubmed: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez....bstract makes complete sense - coz it was only the second time i went to the gym (which was after 7 days) during which i noticed this. anyone else have experience or knowledge in this department? btw i've abstained a couple times before for fun - once for 1.5 months, but this was before i was into doing the gym thing - but i did notice vastly improved mental focus and power.
