Sore forearms? I must not be jelqing right.
On my quest to hit the average EG of 5 and then some, I have been scrambling around all the forums trying to soak up as much info as I can on girth exercises. I’m not really a newbie (a little over a year now), but after trying Uli’s and Horse440’s I am in a back to basics phase right now. For more info on that see the thread titled “No girth in 8 months” (not sure how to link).
There’s one thing I’ve run into a number of times on jelqing that really got me scratching my head. What is all this talk about sore forearms? One quote said something along the lines of you would need forearms like Popeye’s biceps to be able to jelq 5000 times. Others talk about how hard it is on their arms in general. Pardon my French but… what the fuck? I don’t feel anything at all and I’m not the hulk either. I get the grip, I get the basic motion, but can someone fill me in on where the arms come into this?
