  • Rest Week Negative for Me

    So I am new and have been at PE for about 5 months mainly to cure ED which I have fought for years (57 birthdays takes its toll). All was going well as I completed the JP90 and then added a Bathmate to my routine. Since I travel for work I had been doing my PE in the mornings in my hotel room, lots of privacy there. Things were progressing very nicely as I actually was able to have sex with my wife without using pills, big deal for some of us. also happened to grow a little in girth and length which was an added benefit.
    So I thought well this week I will not be traveling and maybe I should try a rest week. So many have said that it really helped. All week I did nothing no jelq, no stretch, no pump, no edge, no balloon and guess what. I turtled like I just came out of a cold shower, morning wood did not happen once. Had sex with the wife one morning and it worked okay but not what I would call a 10 for EQ. More like maybe a 7.
    I guess I am not ready to back off yet. Anyone have an opinion?

    When I experienced similar, I extended break until (for me) morning wood got better.
    You can do some 'lite' pe,gentle jelqing, during break, I did, and it helped give me some peace of mind.

    Nothing real strenuous.

    There are times, when you just have to see what will work for you.

    Looks are deceiving, mirrors don't lie.

      Weight lifters de-load after 10-12 weeks by either taking an entire week off, or by doing their workouts at 50% of the weight. If taking a week off is unsatisfactory, you could simply do your normal routine at 50% of the duration/intensity and see if that yields more desirable results.
      Start | BPEL: 6.2500, EG: 5.0000 |
      Current | BPEL: 7.0625, EG: 5.0625 |
      Goal​ | BPEL: 7.5, EG: 5.5 |

        I was the same way. Everyone is different I guess. It certainly makes sense that a rest week after 3 monts+ of PE would be beneficial but I always find the more days off I take in a row, the more challenging my workout is when I return.

          Thanks for the help. I think I will start back next week, light workouts. I was just so strange that I had a few nights during the week that I had night wood but no morning wood at all. Even though I was getting both during the previous month. Looks like I found what I need to do.
