2 months. No gains.
Okay first off, I know there are other posts similar to this, but I figure each guy’s path is a bit different so I’m hoping I can get some advice here based on my personal situation. I have basically hit what is a plateau for the past 8 weeks and counting, and I don’t know what I should do next. My routine has been more or less the following:
5 min. Warm up
10x stretch 10 seconds each, all directions
100x wet jelqs
5x A-stretch (or assisted A)
25x jelq and hold
~30 minutes ballooning/edging
5 warm down
My situation is that I have been PEing since October ‘06, but quit in January ‘07 and returned since December. In the initial period I gained about an inch in length, and improved erections (up until then I was basically an ED sufferer, which got me interested in PE in the first place). I lost a little length on my hiatus but quickly gained it back. I am now about 6.75 BPEL (slightly longer with upward curve consideration) and 4.6 EG and have been sitting there since January.
I’ve slowly phased in more girth work as suggested by others in a previous post, since it is lagging “ratio-wise” and perhaps even holding back length gains. Also I’ve heard that girth takes much longer so I should get started early. I don’t exactly subscribe to the rubber band analogy (thicker rubber bands are harder to stretch yes, but can’t they ultimately stretch more? My girth is lagging so much I feel like this rubber band might “snap” if I try to push it any further. This is another forum post however.). I’ve also phased in the tunica work based on the assumption that my newbie gains are exhausted and I should focus more on real gains, but so far all it has done is made my erection angle much higher, nearly 45 degrees.
The last thing I’ve changed up until this point is my 1 on 1 off schedule to 2 days on 1 day off. I made the switch two weeks ago and I seem to be handling the busier schedule without killing my dick. Any suggestions on how I should approach this though? Am I doing something wrong? I’ve got several other options I might try for a month each (increase length of routine, increase intensity with more advanced exercises like ADS or Uli’s, mem’s routine, decon for a while, etc) but I’d prefer not to guess and check with this and instead develop a method to the madness. Good god, now I know why plateaus drive people crazy!
One more thing.. My BPFSL sucks hard, nearly an inch shorter than my BPEL, especially in the upward direction I’m secretly hoping Iguana’s “secret to gaining” post will shed some light on this.
