I recently restarted PE right before Christmas after really beginning in January of last year. I only did it a couple months, only enough time to really learn how to stretch, jelq, and squeeze properly. Now that I’m starting again I’m excited to really get down to business this time especially sense I know how to do the exercises the right way. I’m starting off 6x5, I feel very average, but want to get up to the famed and sought after 8x6.
Just some questions and concerns that hopefully some vets can help me out with:
I have read around that guys often loose gains once they stop PEing. Do you usually loose all the gains you make or just some? Does it depend on the person?
I assume that a maintenance routine is something that guys do to keep their current gains while taking a break before they push on to their next plateau. Is this right?
I also have read posts speaking of “cementing gains.” how exactly to you accomplish this? I am inclined to think that you just PE to a certain point above your goals to allow some room for loses once you stop. Am I right in this?
I really appreciate all the help with this topic as I am very exited over improving my unit. I just don’t plan on PEing for the entirety of my existence. I am young so PE for EQ really doesn’t cross my mind so maybe I will change the way I feel about that in 25 years or so, we will see. I have just read so many amazing success stories (YGuy, Dino9x7, etc.) that I can’t resist the thought of reaching for the stars.
