Is jelqing or hanging better for initial length gains?

Is jelqing or hanging better for initial length gains?

I have read the guidelines on hanging and understand that it is considered an advanced technique. With that having been said, I hope the following question is not too annoying.

I want to gain length more than girth. Both need work, but my length has always been a concern for me. From my reading of the hanging primer, it sounds like hanging is the best technique for gaining length. I have been doing PE with the newbie routine for about a month, and although there have been no measurable gains yet, I feel like I’m getting a stronger dick. I know that a month isn’t necessarily when you should start to see gains, so I’m not writing to ask if I am doing anything wrong. But I would like to know if anyone has any suggestions on when to begin hanging. I don’t want to jelq and gain girth, making length gains more difficult later on. Do length gains from the newbie routine usually come exclusively from the stretches, or does jelqing increase length in addition to girth?

Sorry I’m so verbose, but here’s a very basic version of the question: should I just jelq/stretch now and begin hanging once I’ve been doing this for a few months, or should I begin hanging and focus more on jelqing later once I have achieved some length gains?

In your answers please assume I do not want to destroy my genitals, and would be hanging with very light weights at first and only increasing very slowly. :-)

Pretty much everyone here is going to tell you to stick to the newbie routine. This is sound advice. I, however, do not think hanging has to be an “advanced” technique. In fact, several factors make it very safe for a beginner:
1) you are using constant stress levels: no whoops I pulled too hard or created too much pressure with that last jelq, the weight you hang is the weight you hang, and this makes progression very simple and safe as you can do it in small, measured steps.
2) modern hangers are very safe devices: bib hangers and especially vac hangers do a pretty good job of allowing circulation and their attachment is a pretty well fleshed-out process at this point.
3) during the acclimation period a person can use very low weights until he masters the attachment, adjustments and wrapping.

That said, hangers - especially the compression variety - have a pretty steep learning curve. Although this learning curve exists completely irrespective of how much other PE you have done: if you are a newbie to hanging, you are a newbie to hanging. You will need to practice and try many techniques at light weights until you get it down.

So with all that out of the way, you could follow either course of action. I already pretty much know I’m going to get ridiculed for saying that. ;)

As to which method works better for length, it seems like hanging will give good consistent gains for the long haul, but some individuals make faster gains very quickly with manual exercises but then the manual gains quickly plateau. Well “quickly” in the marathon world of PE, that is.


Agree with almost everything Roots said.

I know some will disagree but I don’t think manuals should be done just because of quick initial gains. I think many methods could get those initial gains just as fast.

Manuals get the benefits of newbie gains because it’s what most people start with. If most people started with an extender we would be talking about the same quick gains.

To me the true benefit of manuals is they require no investment of money and they are easier to learn than almost anything else.

Thank you guys!

I know this is a very large website, Roots, and so I understand the precaution of having the hanging section covered with warnings about how it is advanced. It does seem possible, though, to have it be “introductory” as long as you use very light weights and focus on proper form instead of “I need to be a tripod by the weekend.”

Central, I agree that quick initial gains are not a good reason to perform any workout routine. What I, and probably most PE’ers, are after is long-term gains, not a quick inch. And your point about the likely universality of quick gains is well taken as well.
