    Personally, I find that just 5-6 minutes of pulse-rated exercise every other day keeps me mentally on an even keel.

    The physiological benefits of the exercise begin to wane significantly on the 3rd day. Thus, if you do the pulse-rate exercise every 2nd day, you are always benefiting from at least 60%-plus of the maximum physiological benefits of the exercise. That also means that if you miss a 2nd-day session, but do the pulse-rated exercise on the 3rd day, it’s not that bad. You don’t have to berate yourself too much for missing a 2nd-day session because the benefits of the exercise only begin to wane significantly on the third day. So, you will experience a dip in the benefits, but will come back on the 3rd-day session.


    Beware of antidepressant medications that are prescribed by doctors (AND everything else that the medical establishment has to sell you, for that matter). Some antidepressant drugs are known to mess with male libido and erectile function. Check the lists of known side effects of the drugs you are taking.

    I declared myself finished restoring with 3/4 erect coverage (CI-8.5) in 2005. I primarily used T-tape, strapping up and around my waist.
    I've participated in NORM meetings in San Diego, Los Angeles, Seattle (RECAP), and Ann Arbor, Michigan.

    Every doubt, reservation, or concern I had about my restoration was resolved by achieving additional foreskin LENGTH.....So just KOT !

    But spreading paranoia isn't helpful. Medicine uses what it has available, and has always acknowledged that this is less than acceptable by using the term "chemical restraints".

        Yes, exercise can be a very effective way to treat depression. Here's the most important thing I learned while writing a book on running and mental health: In clinical studies, regular aerobic exercise is as effective as antidepressants in reducing symptoms of mild to moderate depression.

          You may want to look at my previous post on my minimal exercise system (6 min per day):
