2.5 years later.
Well, not technically true, I gained quite a lot of girth and probably just short of .05” length in the first few months, but since then nothing.
I started off on the newbie routine, then upped the level of jelqs. I can’t remember exactly what I was doing when I was gaining in (It’s a long time ago, and back then I assumed it would continue so didn’t pay too much attention!). After the first month or 2 though, I just couldn’t gain. I probably upped it to 400 jelqs + stretches soon after, but that didn’t really help so I cut back as I saw it as a waste of time.
What I have found is stopping altogether makes me lose all my previous gains. Not fair!
So I dropped it to around 200-250 jelqs. I think after a while I noticed more negative PI’s when doing stretching, so I dropped that. I continued at around 200 jelqs for a long time there, knowing full well that it didn’t seem to be helping me gain, but I knew full well that stopping would see me revert back to original size. This always happens, it takes less than a week and it’s all gone (luckily it does seem to come back after a few weeks of jelqing).
I’ve been reading these forums for as long as I have been PE’ing, and about 6 months ago I read a theory on how for some people, less is more. I decided to give this a go - if I can’t gain, then why not try to minimise the amount of time whilst possibly getting some unexpected gains?
I dropped it to around 100-125 jelqs, and this was enough to maintain. As expected, no gains, but at least I maintained previous gains (and for less time). I added in some stretches, going mostly for BTC stretches, but this doesn’t seem to have helped.
That’s a brief summary of the last 2.5 years, obviously I’ve probably changed things around more than that, but my memory isn’t that good, and I’m trying not to produce a brick wall of text here.
So, it’s time I finally ask for help now. I want to see growth again!! I didn’t know what to change, I considered may be after 2.5 years I needed a decon but that doesn’t make sense seeing as I lose when I do that. Just to point out, I do have rest days.
I’m thinking now that I should up the jelqs again. I can’t remember that well, may be when I was doing 300 the negative PIs was because of a lack of rest days? After a few days off (shrinkage began already!) I have started again at 200 jelqs for the last 2 days (had a rest day today). 50 of these have been OH grip, which I’ve not done before. I’ll begin to up this steadily, and add in some stretches as from my next PE workout, whilst ensuring no more than 2 consec days of PE’ing. I’ll also add in some edging.
I am wondering whether my penis has adapted to this kind of exercise though, and may be it is time to begin hanging to continue progress? I read another theory on here recently along those lines, that as you start to plateau you should move along to the next level (?) of PE’ing.
Just as a side note, I realised tonight that my initial length gain may well have come purely down to the englarged head achieved through jelqing, in which case they are not true length gains?
Does anyone else find all their good work is undone after a week or so out of it? It’s so frustrating to have spent god knows how much time over the last few years, and in the space of a week it’s all undone.
Mr. Plateau is wondering if it was worth it at all.
