My LOT: battle plan
Alright…I’m kinda’ pissed because I have to travel a more treacherous path than you lucky High-Lot guys. I know, I can hear it already: “the answers to my questions vary from person to person,” but I’ll try anyway.
My LOT is about 7:00-7:30, which means I’m on the low side. I used to have a higher LOT, but I didn’t even know about this theory back then so I can’t accurately say what it used to be. The reason I have a low LOT is over the years I developed a habit of pulling down on the base to stretch the ligs at the mons pubis, but only for a few seconds and not every day. Basically, I was doing manual stretching before I heard of it, but I was not pulling from the shaft to increase length along with decreasing LOT.
My first question is: by not stretching the shaft while decreasing LOT, did I somehow mess-up the full potential of the whole lig stretching approach (ie could I have had larger gains that I can’t tap into now?) My gain since then is about 0.25” in length (~6” from ~5.75”).
Since my LOT is now low, regardless of what I could have done, my second question is: how much pressure are we talking about when we need to target the longitudinal fibers of the tunica? I know I need to work up to a higher strength, but what is the smallest weight that’s usually effective?
