Weighing in on the weightlifting metaphor
I’m a little confused (doesn’t take much) about how a lot of members I’ve read about seem to compare and base their PE routines around a weightlifting scenario, in regards to rest days, supplements, diet, etc.
My confusion comes from my personaly understanding that the range of PE exercises that I have seen are really all stretches of different sorts. If you disagree with my understandings, please feel free to enlighten me.
- Manual stretching is obviously stretching the tissues of the penis out.
- Extenders also stretch out the tissues like manual stretching, only with less manual effort.
- Hanging uses gravity to also perform a manual stretch on the tissues.
- Jelqing is using an increased volume of blood in the penis to stretch out the tissues.
- Clamping is trapping the blood in the penis (like a perpetual jelq) to stretch the tissues.
- Pumping is like an inverse of a clamp, in which the body pressure pushes blood into the penis to stretch the tissues.
So shouldn’t the tissue damage we are doing (if any) be compared to stretching, and not compared to the tissue damage that is done by other parts of the body when those muscles exert themselves so hard that they cause damage to themselves, and in turn repair themselves in the form of muscle growth. (bicep growth performing bicep curls with maximum weight)
At it’s purest form, what I’m asking is this:
Is the possible damage done by stretching a muscle, the same kind and quantity of damage that is done by the same muscle lifting enough weight that it damages itself?
I personally look at my PE workout as stretching (not as weightlifting) so I don’t take rest days, and try and exert the maximum quantity of stretching I can throughout the day, every day, while trying to avoid negative PI.
I would appreciate any opinion or discussion on the topic.
