How long to do Newbie Routine? [my search result inside as well]
Hey all, I haven’t posted in a couple weeks but I’ve still been reading around here, and of course still am trying to learn everything.
My question here is, how long to stay on the Newbie Routine until switching off to a different routine?
I did a search and of all my thread-results this was the only one that was directed towards my question:
I think everyone should begin with a simple routine of stretching and jelqing. Follow the newbie routine or something similar for a few months.
You won’t lose girth (what you are referring to as “weigh”) from this. I don’t know what you mean by “PS squeeze,” but you should avoid advanced exercises for now.
Use the newbie routine
My question after reading that is, how many months was he talking about when he said “a few?” I broke down the newbie routine and found that the “formula” for adding stretches and jelq’s per week are as follows:
Week 1: 5 minutes of stretches [10, 30-second stretches] ~and~ 10 minutes of jelqing (200 3-second strokes)
Week 2: 6 minutes of stretches [12, 30-second stretches] ~and~ 14 minutes of jelqing (280 3-second strokes)
Week 3: 7 minutes of stretches [14, 30-second stretches] ~and~ 10 minutes of jelqing (360 3-second strokes)
Week 4: 8 minutes of stretches [16, 30-second stretches] ~and~ 10 minutes of jelqing (440 3-second strokes)
Week 5: 9 minutes of stretches [18, 30-second stretches] ~and~ 10 minutes of jelqing (520 3-second strokes)
Week 6: 10 minutes of stretches [20, 30-second stretches] ~and~ 10 minutes of jelqing (600 3-second strokes)
If you don’t know what I’m talking about and I’ve lost you on this last part this is the part I’m referring to, quoted directly from the “Official Newbie Routine Thread”:
Gradually increase to 10 min total of stretches and 30 min of jelqing over about 6 weeks time
Anyways, I’ve been on my 6th week for a week now… in other words, according to what is suggested in the “Official Newbie Routine Thread”, I won’t be increasing in # of Jelq’s or Stretches anymore; I will remain doing 600 Jelq’s and Twenty (20) 30-second stretches.
Summary (now that I’ve explained where my question is being derived from):
Since I’m no longer going to be increasing in # of Jelq’s or Stretches anymore, how long do I continue doing these 600 Jelq’s and Twenty (20) 30-second stretches? And what routine is suggested to take after I’m done with this “newbie routine” for best gains (mainly looking for Erect Length)? By the way before anybody says it, by “for best gains” I mean a routine that has been known to produce results (preferrably in Erect Length) in multiple members since I know results may vary from member-to-member.
Also, when is it safe to say that I can incorporate other exercises (I’ve been wondering about this “JAI stretch I keep hearing about”) into my routine without having to wondering if my gains are coming from my basic routine or my new stretches that I have added in (in other words after I’ve gotten “every possible gain” from my original routine). Basically I tend to think that I should get all the results I can, then incorporate something new in, get all the results from that, and just keep repeating; in other words getting the most out of everything. I tend to think that if I were to add JAI stretches in now it would put an end to all gains I would have originally gotten from the “newbie routine” had I not incorporated this/these new routine(s).
Thanks a BUNCH for any help on this, as I’ve been wondering about this for a couple weeks now.
No dedication + No self-discipline = No Gains. This goes for working out as well. It's elementary math kids.
