    If I abstain for 4+ days I can do 10 straight pressups with ease but if i give into my sinful desires I struggle at like 5. I think it has something to do with testosterone levels.

    Anyone else experienced this?

    Hi striveforpurity,
    If you google "masturbation and testosterone levels" there are studies indicating that testosterone levels increase mildly without masturbation until day 6. On day 7 t levels shoot up 140%

    I believe seman retention is key to a young mans strength and vitality.

    For anyone curious about this topic, I recommend reading Mantak Chia and his book Taoist Secrets of Love: Cultivating Male Sexual Energy.

    I can vouch for this. After a period of abstinence I hit 264 lbs raw in the back squat, a feat I'd never attempted before.

    I also believe abstinence is strength. Its amazing that my mind and body can understand this yet at sometimes I find myself testing my discipline and acting as though abstinence did not improve my strength.

    Sigh, gotta be more productive so that I will retain more energy for working out and exercising ;)
