Cool down vs. Warm down

Cool down vs. Warm down

I have noticed a couple members mention they either perform a cool down or a warm down after PEing. I am not positive about the best method but I do believe both have an important role to play in achieving gains.

In the bodybuilding/fitness world most people are aware of using a cold compress for injuries. Also known as RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation). This may help with sports injuries but it can also limit muscular gains. Muscle requires nutrients to grow and blood is the transport by which those nutrients reach muscles, hence the coveted “muscle pump”. By this reasoning, reducing blood flow by using an ice wrap can inhibit growth. On the other hand many bodybuilders use heat wraps or saunas to increase blood flow to aid in nutrient delivery to muscles. This does not help tendons or ligaments though. Muscle requires lots of blood but fat, ligs, and tendons do not get much circulation. This is why lig and tendon injuries take so much more time to heal.

In the PE world I believe applying heat before during and after training can greatly increase your girth gains from smooth muscle development but I also believe you can use a cold compress to help in lig stretching. Heat application is already well known before PEing to increase blood flow and loosen your tunica and ligs. No explanation there is necessary. Heating after PEing is also common sense because you want to maintain a pumped feeling and speed recovery through nutrient absorption. Those are great additions to you routine for girth but I believe a cold compress will actually help more for lig stretching than heat would. I like to think of it as cementing in your stretches. First use heat to help loosen everything up, perform your stretching routine, then use a cold or frozen water-bottle applied directly to the site of your ligs while in a stretched state to freeze in the stretch.

This is my first post. I have been a member for a while but I usually just use this site for motivation and as an encyclopedia of knowledge. I have been PEing for several years on and off. I wish I knew my starting stats but unfortunately I don’t. I am currently dedicated to gaining girth so I can’t say this info has been put to practice my me personally. If you have anything to comment for or against my opinions feel free to reply.

My stats: 5’5”, 155 Lbs, muscular and lean
BPEL: 7.25 BPFSL: 7.5
MSEG: 4.75
ST Goal: BPEL: 7.5 MSEG: 5
LT Goal: BPEL: 8 MSEG: 5.5

I agree with everything you said. I am still fairly new to PE (almost a month in) but I have read many threads on here about the significance of heat in PE. I am a true believer that heat and cold is a key to gains I have incorporated both in my workout and definitely feel a difference. I use heat to warm up and throughout my workout at the end I do a warm down and then directly after I take 3-4 ice cubes and stretch my penis out and let the ice cubes melt on my shaft. At the end of the week will be one full month of PE for me and I will post a thread with my gains and probably some pics if your interested.

warm up, then cool down.

increases blood circulation. cool down aids in recovery.
If you cool down in an extended state(bathmate, pump extender) then you might have some additional benefits like heavier hang and mroe cold resistance.
Obviously a cool down is only short but kind of intense. Not so long that you kill of tissue ;)

I currently use neither for my length workouts. I do use heat for girth work.

Start: 17 Feb 2012, 8.25bpel x 4.92mseg; bpfsl=??; fl=6.5x4.5

Current: 29 April 2013, 8.875bpel x 5.8mseg; bpfsl=9.25; fl=7x5

Goal: 9NBP x 6.25mseg and the best EQ ever!

I start and end with heat. Nice feeling.

Started PE 6/14/13. BPEL 6.5", NBPEL 5.5", MSEG 4.75"

7/18/13 BPEL 6.75, NBPEL 5.75, MSEG 4.875

8/9/13 BPEL 7", NBPEL 6", MSEG 4.875

Nice question

I did my PE before the concept of a cool down really caught on, so I used to warm wrap at the end of a session. What that did for me was to make a fluffy post jelq penis into a smaller more dense but still plumped penis. I always massaged and afterwards the penis, of course, cooled down. That worked for me but I’ve since read a lot from other people that would suggest this is not an optimal method. I wish I had a thread I could easily reference ;)

I was a strong experimenter with cold water; one day when the tides of an evening chill become apparent, I will frost my flesh in a glacial stream once again.


I think warm would be the best thing for length and girth no matter what. Because like you said it helps blood flow, and thats the whole key here, more blood to the penis, more blood vessels expansion, etc. WARM WARM WARM
