STRENGTH AND MUSCLE GAINING TIPS: 99 PROBLEMS BUT MORNING WOOD AIN'T ONE
I got 99 problems, but morning wood ain’t one. If you ain’t poppin tents, I feel bad for you son. I got 99 problems, but morning wood
You may be asking yourself how morning Wood and gaining
muscle is related. If you aren’t experiencing the joy of waking up with Thor’s mighty hammer between your legs, then you aren’t maximizing your gains. And more importantly, something serious could be wrong with your health. For men, waking up with morning wood is a strong indication that the vascular and hormonal systems of the body are working properly. These two systems are directly related to how fast and how much muscle mass you gain.
1.Your hormonal balance (Estrogen, Testosterone, DHT, Prolactin) is off
When you fail to get morning wood, the first item to check off the list is a hormonal imbalance. Most people think that if you just increase
the amount of testosterone your body makes or the amount of testosterone you put in your body (TRT Therapy, Steroids), all issues will be solved. WRONG!! Any increase in testosterone also increases your estrogen levels. Increasing Testosterone is half of the equation. The other half is to decrease your estrogen levels.
We keep discovering the negative effects of high Estrogen levels. Fat gain, water weight gain, strength loss, muscle loss, male shrinkage, etc. However, it appears to be worse than we thought. There are now several leading researchers that think high Estrogen levels, not DHT, are leading to the increase of Enlarged Prostate/ Prostate Cancer occurrences in America. Estrogen production is directly related to the release of SHBG (Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin) and Prolactin (Bitch Tits). SHBG is most associated with free testosterone. The less SHBG you have, the more circulating testosterone you have. However, SHBG is not only found in circulating blood, but also in human tissue. One of those tissues is the prostate. With the help of SHBG, sex hormones (androgen
and estrogen) can penetrate the cells of the prostate faster and easier. What does it all mean? High levels of Estrogen, NOT DHT, are responsible for some of the worst side effects for men. And if you keep making more SHBG, you won’t have enough testosterone to grow, and keep, any new muscle.
2.Your Vascular system isn’t working correctly
If you aren’t waking up with the crown jewels of Asgard at full attention, and your hormone levels are balanced, there is a strong possibility that there is something wrong with your vascular system. Your vascular system includes all your blood vessels, arteries, capillaries, and any organs that help your blood circulate. However, most people don’t include NO, NOS, and any other enzymes that aid in circulation. They should.
If your vascular system isn’t functioning properly, your gains will slow down. Your body uses your vascular system to remove waste materials from working muscles, and to deliver nutrients and hormones required for recovery and growth. Over time, our body’s ability to turn Arginine into Nitric Oxide is down regulated. The enzyme, NOS, is easily down regulated. When NOS gets down regulated, eNOS doesn’t work like it used to. eNOS is directly responsible for causing a relaxation in the blood chambers of your manhood. Once they fill up, boom, Thor’s legendary hammer.
Morning Wood is one of the most accurate ways to determine if
your body is in muscle building mode. If your hormone levels are off (testosterone too low, estrogen too high), or your vascular system isn’t working to its best ability, good luck trying to gain and
keep any new muscle. Even if you are “supplementing” with testosterone, your body is still going to make too much estrogen (have fun when your cycle ends). No matter what cycle you are using, it is always a good idea to use a supplement with something that can help your body make more testosterone, while eliminating
excess estrogen. If you haven’t tried Alpha PCT, you should. It is a staple of all my cycles. When on a cycle, I take
Alpha PCT 5 days on, 2 off. Also, two weeks before my cycle ends, I stop using Alpha PCT. I give my body a slight break to make sure
that Alpha PCT kicks in strong once my cycle is over.
For vascular support, I have been using PermaSwole. The formula includes Agmatine, and not Arginine. It is extremely easy for too
much Arginine to down regulate NOS. However, Agmatine is a byproduct of the conversion of Arginine into NO. By taking Agmatine, your body works less, and gives you a stronger Vasodilatation effect than Arginine. Also, PermaSwole has Norvaline. Norvaline inhibits Arginase, the enzyme responsible for capping the amount of NO your body can make. By inhibiting Arginase, Norvaline allows your pumps, and other vasodilation effects, to be stronger, and last longer in the body. I use PermaSwole 4-5 days on,
followed by 2-3 days off. Cycling helps to prevent the effects of PermaSwole from diminishing.
