I’ve had a little read around the site but I always get lost in all of the information so I was wondering if you’d spare a little time to answer a few questions/clear some things up for me, it’s my preferred method of learning! :P
1) Is 2 minutes warm up/2 minutes warm down too short of a time? I haven’t noticed any injury or sign of injury and having read other sites, I thought 2 minutes was the norm but after seeing finding this forum, it seems 5-10 minutes is the “minimum” - should I up my warm up & down? I don’t have much time so the 2 mins seems quite comfortable but if my short warmup is dangerous, I’ll definitely try make time for a longer one. Oh, and I’m just jelqing for now, no stretching or hanging etc.
2) Is there a guide or ideal way to measure the penis? I usually use a tape measure (to account for curves) and start it with it pushed into the little pad of fat at the base until it touches the base - is this considered cheating or something? Hope not, would kind of bruise the ego if it was :P Since I started jelqing 2-3 weeks ago, maybe I’m crazy or it’s just “temp gains” or something but I feel like I’ve gained roughly a 1cm.. It could just be the fact that jelqing seems to have improved my erection quality and that it’s always been 6.3” and I haven’t had a decent enough erection to measure that.. Who knows but yeah, a certain standard to hold so I can measure my progress would be cool!
3) Sorry for this one, I know it’s covered in the site but I really do suffer with information overload. In layman’s terms, when it comes to jelqing, does it matter which direction I jelq in (as in straight forward, downwards etc).. Is there a difference between different jelqing directions and do they affect your gains?
My “routine” (can hardly call it a routine, it’s quite terrible) is just 5 days of jelqing with 2 days off per week, I warm up for 2 minutes and I started with 200 jelqs per day and just added on 50 at seemingly random times, did 350 today, I guess I should refine this and get a proper routine down, I’m just worried about how time consuming it may be due to travel and the fact that I spend most of my time in at my girlfriends which is a busy household so there’s not much private time.
Right now I’m roughly 6.3” in length erect (I’ll try get back to you with a girth measurement) and my absolute goal would be 7” - I don’t ask for much, I know but for me, 7” seems just right for a humble guy like me, I’d even settle for something like 6.5-7” but with increased girth.. I definitely think my goals are reasonable, what do you guys think? I just want to get a bit of a better understanding and do this thing properly, I normally struggle to stick with things like this but I’m gonna give it a really good go, already feeling the benefits (seem to look bigger and fuller flaccid and my erection quality seems notably higher!)
Thanks for reading guys!
