I have some questions about the gaining/non-gaining phase.
To give you somewhat of a view of my situation: I am on my 8th week of the newbie routine. 3-1-2-1 ON/OFF. Warmup/Stretching/Jelqing/Warmdown ~1 hour.
Here is my PI indicators:
Negative: Discoloration (darker foreskin, especially around the top covering the glans)
Neutral: Increased size temporarily, Edema (sometimes), Redness/Spotting (sometimes)
Positive: Larger flaccid during the day (Only girth-wise mostly though), Nite/Morning wood and hardness of erections are pretty much the same, hard to see a difference.
I haven’t seen any gains yet when I can read about people getting most of their gains from the newbie routine (first months).
I can see a bigger flaccid and also bigger erect unit on the session days after the workout, but as soon as I measure during the rest days it’s back to the starting size.
Is this normal since I am still so new or should I switch anything?
I have recently added fulcrums to the stretch because I got much of that “steel cord” and also added some horse squeezes in the jelqing.
How long would you give this? And what would be the next step if the gains won’t come, shock routine? Decon break? Try pumping?
Need some motivational tips from the veterans!
