Down.but not out Determined
For fear of joining the “annoying questions club,” I will keep this short (link shortcuts always welcomed). I have been doing the Newbie Routine since the beginning of June and current 2 on 1 off, 10min heat, 2 min JAI stretch, 3 min downward stretch, 3 min BTC stretch + 160 Jelqs at 3 secs. MINIMAL-NO results!
My question is.. When are you supposed to know when to switch up your routine? When do you take the Newbie routine and add another stretch or hanging or even clamping into the mix. I know patience is the golden term on this board, but at 4 mos with nothing to show, I think it is time to add another wrinkle to my routine.
I think I speak for all newbies when I say that the ambiguity on PE phases is high. When to move from one to the other? Gradual integration of new stretches or methods (ie clamping) or a full shift into the next gear of PE?
I will sit back and watch the inevitable scolding of not searching the forum enough or using the search bar efficiently. But I can assure you, most stat lines I see of the active members on here are seeing gains around 4 mos and if you are moving the needle even a little bit, it is easy to stay the course or add more advanced exercises. But what about the poor s’mucks (like myself) who are starting to fear the ruler?
