Im trying to approach this in a logical manner. Ive learned through bodybuilding a person can waste a great deal of time and effort by overtraining. Im brand new to this, but it seems to me that the frequency that you stretch could be on a daily basis as this is essentially the stretching of ligaments and frequent stretching would be a positive. however jelqing, as i understand it, is the breaking down of tissue and the gains come from cell regeneration/overcompensation just as in building muscle from weight lifting, even if we arent working muscle, the same mechanism applies.
Having said that, would it not be advantagous in the LONG RUN , to space out jelqing to every other day? Wouldnt the lack of progress for a newbie after the first month or so be attributed to overtraing and the bodies reaction to undue stress( see Dr. Seyles General adaptation syndrome). It seems to me we should looking for a frequency that allows for optimal gains over a years time verses maximal gains in the short term (weeks-months).
Any thoughts from experienced pe’s are welcome.
