Value of taking breaks
I remember some members of this forum stressing the importance of long breaks (over 3 months) when you hit a plateau. I have re-started PE after taking a 2-3 month break. I was very busy during the time and hit a plateau, but if I had the time, I would most likely have taken no breaks.
After PEing again for about a month, I finally re-measured my penis. I’ve gained around 0.25 inches in girth as compared to before my break, and have lost around 0.1-0.25 inches in length. My current routine now primarily consists of bundled stretches along with a few length stretches but with an emphasis on girth.
Before I took my break, I had already began doing bundled stretches but did not have the same level of progress as I have in girth.
Right now I measure around 4.25ish girth and 5.75ish BPEL and my goal is 7X5. Because my penis is so skinny, I don’t mind the loss of a little length for significant girth gains. However, the net gain of my penis with girth-length is not much. I wonder if I had not taken such a long break, my penis would have been bigger.
When body builders hit muscle plateaus, they normally change their routine or they take a week break. But they will never take several months off of the gym. When it comes to building lean muscle, most people and myself included, find that gains come in cycles. After several months of hard lifting I may not even gain strength nor mass, but would unexpectedly start getting really fast gains for about a month. This cycle seems to repeat without fail, and I suspect that the penis may work in this way too.
Really, my very circuitous questions are this: How important are long breaks? Is it better to continue PE even after you have hit a significant plateau? Or perhaps it is better to take a short break and change routines much like the bodybuilders?
