Solo Workout: Masturbation Is Key To A Flatter Tummy

January 28, 2015 3 min read

We are animals as much as we are humans. To feel truly vital and alive, we need to move in pleasurable ways that grow our energy. We are built to move, stretch, run, and sweat -- but we don't. Not nearly enough at least. We crave and yearn for body confidence, but the only way to feel confident in your own body is to move it and use it in ways that feel good. We crave sleep and rest, real rejuvenation and clarity, yet we don't get the recommended eight to nine hours of sleep a night. Not even close. Most of us get six hours a night, which causes us to wake up tired and leads us to crave sugar, caffeine, and carbs to wake up. The human body craves true rejuvenation and vitality, but diving into the bottom of a mocha-frappa-latte-ccino is the only answer your overworked, overstressed body can think of. masturbation is key to a flatter stomach We crave touch. We need each other. We need to be held. Baby mammals, humans included, who don't get enough cuddling and skin-to-skin contact with another creature whither, don't thrive, and can develop serious emotional problems. [bctt tweet="Solo Workout: Masturbation Is Key To A Flatter Tummy"] Adults are no different. You need touch, physical play, and pleasure as much as a river otter. We need more fun play in our days, even as adults. Play isn't some trivial, dumb thing that's just for kids. Play should be as important to you as eating greens or drinking water. Not only does pleasurable play grow new brain connections for happier moods and better memory, play also sets off a cascade of body-positive effects that help keep you slim and vital.

3 Ways to fulfill your very natural physical cravings (and stop craving sugar and caffeine all day):

1. Masturbate: There are benefits to indulging in solo-play even 10 minutes a day, with or without climax. 2. Work in "bursts": The human brain is designed to function best when we move often. Set a timer and work in 20-minute chunks to focus your brain. Between 20-minute work cycles, get up and move for five minutes. You can stretch, walk, skip rope, or even lift weights at your desk. You'll be more productive and engaged. 3. Be a kid: What would your eight-year-old self do for fun? Roller skating, hula hoop, archery, biking, laser tag, or any other form of fun physical play is your best bet for movement (aka exercise) that truly works to enliven and support your wellbeing.

Here's a list of 4 Neurochemicals of Play and Pleasure:

1. Dopamine: Everything you do or eat for pleasure produces dopamine surges in your brain. From setting and achieving goals to mind-blowing sex to holding hands or hugging, this key player in the reward system of your brain is where we get that feeling of pleasure. 2. Endocannabinoids: Possibly the cause for "runner's high", these self-produced cannabis chemicals are created by your brain and are called the "bliss molecules," which make movement fun and keeps us coming back for more. 3. Oxytocin: "The bonding molecule" is produced from skin-to-skin contact -- making love, affection, and intimacy. Playing and commiserating with a friend also releases oxytocin and bonds us with friends and lovers. It also, funny enough, bonds us to our dogs, so cuddling and playing with your dog makes them into a loving, lifelong partner (but you dog lovers knew that already). 4. Endorphins: These tiny molecules are basically self-produced opiates that have pain-killing properties. Released during strenuous physical play, sex, and orgasm, they relieve pain. When you witness and experience your own capacity for fun and play, your mood, hope, and trust in your body's strength grow and flourish.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
