Modify your routine daily for best results vs. stick to what's working(no change)
We all know that there is no Holy Grail PE routine. Some things just work differently for different people. However, I wonder if there is-as a general rule-a best way to do a routine. I have seen some talk about this on Thundersplace, but never a poll.
A lot of guys say that one has to change something constantly in their routine to constantly grow and keep from hitting a plateau. I can understand the logic in this because it works a lot like the fitness program I am on called P90x. P90x is not only popular, its extremely effective . Besides proper nutrition, one of the keys to its success is muscle confusion.
The routine is different everyday so the body and muscles never get use to anything and are constantly shocked thus forcing the body to shed fat and grow lean muscle mass. I wonder if PE may best work the same way.
From your experience:
Is this the best way to practice PE?
How often should the routine be modified (everyday, every other day, every week, monthly)?
If you do think that this is the best way PLEASE post what ways you would recommend changing one’s routine for best results ie. intensity, reps, duration, angles, A.M or P.M., length and girth on different days, incorporating new exercises, changing rest days or the number or rest days etc. etc.
Also include what you think should remain constant ie. always jelq, always Fowfer, always Kegel etc. etc.
Other members say that you should stick to an exact routine until it stops producing gains. I can also see how this is good because why would someone want to fix what isn’t broken. Still, this is almost guaranteeing plateaus and possibly long deconditioning breaks before gains start again.
From your experience:
Is it better to go steady with a routine that is producing gains no matter how long it is taking? Please explain why you feel this way and include any tips on creating a good routine.
How long should someone wait after seeing no gains before changing a routine or taking a break?
*I do understand that newbies should stick to a consistent and light routine that will prevent injury and condition their units.
*I know that Everyone is different and what works for one person may not work for another. I am only looking for a general idea.
*I also know that PE is a marathon and not a sprint. I just want to see what has been effective for most.
