Jelqing effectiveness and cardio
Hey guys just had some things I wanted to clear up for myself. I have been jelqing with medium strength at around 50% and my main goal is to get a feeling of inner expansion and blood movement. When I come to the end of a jelq, my glans fills up with blood and I feel a slight inner expansion so my penis tends to be stretched longer than prior to the jelq. After a session, my dorsal vein is very pronounced and my penis is slightly engorged for a short time. On paper this seems all well and good, but I am confused about a few things
Is blood filling in the glans a good indication of a jelq (in addition to the inner expansion I’ve been getting)?
In spite of the pronounced veins, feeling of inner expansion, and larger glans, I don’t have a feeling of fullness after my sessions. It feels almost like I’ve been pushing a really small amount of blood down there so the workout is somewhat ineffective. I kegel between jelqs and get a sensation of lots of blood, but ultimately my penis doesn’t feel bigger. Has anyone ever experienced this? I have tried lowering my grip strength, but then I feel absolutely no sensation in my jelqs unless I have a much lower erection % like ~20%. Even then, my workouts feel equally ineffective. Would you guys recommend that I start doing more cardio exercise to try and alleviate this? I have relatively shitty cardio, I am only 160lbs and 5’11 but can run a 9:00 mile if I were to guess. When I first started jelqing in high school, the only time it felt effective, I was extremely healthy and could run <6:00 miles. Perhaps this has some sort of connection to effective jelqing. What do you guys think, does this hold true? How fast have your gains been and how good is your cardio?
