Can't decide: Hanging or Clamping
Now before someone jumps on me for having two opposite goal-oriented exercises in mind, hear me out.
I’m a newb here, but have been PE’ing in various ways for over a year now. I have an SG extender, a Capt’s Wench, several Cable Clamps, and an IR lamp, so safe to say I’ve been trying some different things. Current measurements are 6.25 BPEL x 4.75 EG. My goal is somewhere around 7x6.
So on to my dilemma: I can’t freaking decide what path to go down first! Everything that I have read on here has pointed me toward length first because a “thin rubber band stretches easier than a thick rubber band.” My girlfriend (of many years) and probably future wife knows that I am doing the exercises (we live together so it’s near impossible to hide) and so I’ve asked her before whether she would prefer me to be thicker or longer and the answer is always a resounding “THICKER!”
Because of this, I have lately been focusing on clamping and jelqing after I dabbled around with hanging for a couple weeks, but seemed to lose time for it in my schedule. When I clamp, I typically do 6 x 10 minute sets 5-6 days a week with a 5 minute break between each set and by then end of my 6th set, I’m 5.125 EG at the head while in the clamp. I’m also considering adding bundled stretches in the extender to this routine to help add some MSEG.
But now I’m kind of stuck in this cycle of indecision about whether I should dedicate my PE time to hanging or clamping (I really don’t have time for both with work, lifting, etc.). I’ve read that hanging gives you base girth gains, which I don’t want to miss out on, and the obvious length gains. But I’m wondering which measurement to attack first since my girth goals are so much more ambitious than my length goals and because my girlfriend obviously cares for girth, not length. I bottom her out as it is right now - more length would pretty much go unused except for certain positions.
Another worry of mine is going for girth first, reaching my goal measurement, and then losing it because I switch the majority of my time to hanging and don’t keep clamping all the time. I don’t know how long it takes to “cement” clamping gains, but I assume they would probably dwindle away if I cut out clamping altogether.
Also just to add some more information, I don’t really care whether I hang long or short or hang thick or thin, but I have read that both clamping and hanging help you have a bigger flaccid hang anyway. And when I think about my “dream penis,” it’s definitely a thick, shorter one as opposed to a longer, thinner one.
So to wrap it up, I’m just looking for any thoughts/opinions/advice anyone might have about how they would approach this situation.
Thanks in advance!
