Clamping with other materials
Hey guys, this is my first post. I’m not too new to PE.. I’ve known about this forum and read it for a couple of years. I’ve been practicing PE inconsistantly for a couple of years as well, and I probably have seen some kind of improvement, but I never made any measurements. I was too shy to put that I have experience in my profile, so that’s probably why I was stuck in the newbie forum.
Now that I’ve finally gotten to get out the ruler and a peice of paper to measure dimensions I decided I would like to start to work on girth. I’ve read about the clamping routine but I don’t really want to go ahead and buy a cable clamp and other equipment. I’ve begun to use a shoelace as my clamp. It seems to work ok, and it’s not too painful.
I wanted to ask though.. What is the disadvantage of this? Why use a cable clamp instead of something else? I don’t really want to have PE paraphenelia lying around my place.. It’s sort of embarrassing you know?
