Hanging for newbies
I’m guessing that I will probably get some negative feedback on this, but first hear me out.
I have never PE’d prior and have been doing the newbie routine for less than a week. I don’t get a lot out of the stretching portion of the routine because I have trouble maintaining my grip. I have read through past posts on this topic and tried some of the suggestions (e.g. Baby powder or wrap tip with toilet paper, etc) but nothing seems to help as I still end up pulling mostly skin as I can’t firmly grip the area just beneath my glans.
I think that part of the problem is that my head tapers from my shaft. Anyway, I would like to substitute light hanging in lieu of stretching for not only the grip issue but also the following reasons:
Hanging is considered by most of you an advanced exercise, and given the weight that many of you use it probably is. However, hanging with light weight seems safer than manual stretches because the force that is stretching the penis is quantifiable and can be increased in small increments; however, with manual stretching this is not the case. With manual stretches the force applied will vary from day to day. How can you measure success when you can’t control the variable of the force applied to your penis? For those of you who work out and keep an accurate log you know what I am talking about.
Also, assuming that I could grip my dick (which I can’t), what if I wanted to increase the force applied to the stretch by 5% each week. This would not be possible whereas with hanging it would be possible. Because I cannot consistently add small amounts of force through manual stretching, and assuming that the idea is to constantly add a small amount of force as one progresses from week to week, it seems that I would be more likely to injure myself via manual stretches rather than hanging.
Another reason that I would like to start hanging is that from what I have read of your experiences hanging takes a couple of months to get used to and to get the device dialed in.
From what I have read it seems that most of the best gainers here have seen their best gains from hanging, so it’s inevitable that I will hang at some point, and I don’t see a reason to wait.
That said, if you guys still think that I’m being over zealous then I will wait. On that note, I think it’s pretty cool that guys that I have never met and likely never will meet have an interest in the health of my penis, no sarcasm intended. You guys are a classy bunch.
