Almost ready to start stretching
I have been following the linear routine for almost two weeks now, and I’m glad that I haven’t stretched yet because I have been able to adjust my jelqing technique without having to guess whether any results such as pain came from the streching or the jelqing. I have a few questions about stretching:
-The newbie routine manuals always say to do stretches, without specifying which kind of stretches. I am assuming they are talking about simple manual stretches, is this correct? If so, when could I start doing other stretches, such as V stretches and JAI stretches- when I am still doing the newbie routine, or when I go on to the advanced routine?
-In the video for the simple manual stretches, the side stretches are done at SE and SW, rather than east and west. Is this the correct form, or should I be doing the side stretches at 180 degrees, or completely to the sides?
-I will be starting with 5 stretches (down, left, right, up, straight out) of 30 seconds (less if I feel discomfort),but I’m wondering in which sequence you would add another stretch per side. If i decide to go up to 2 stretches per side for a total of 10 stretches, but I go through all of the sides and start over again, or just do each side twice? ( So would it be up down left right out, up down left right out, OR up up down down left left right right out out?)
-I have read that these stretches should be done flaccid. Is it ok if there is a very little amount of erection (like 10 or 15%)?
-Lastly, I read that some people kegel when doing simple manual stretches. Does anybody do this, and is there any real advantage? Would you hold the kegel for the duration of the stretch, or is it a fast kegel?
Sorry for so many questions and thanks for reading!
