When to Call it Quits
Hello All, I’ve posted a few times previously and now I think I’m nearing the end of the PE journey for me.
Up until now:
I started the beginner’s routine in February but didn’t get any gains (my first post). I then moved to hanging in June (following the breakup with my girlfriend I had a lot more free time on my hands and decided this would be one way I’d better myself). Still no luck with hanging, I was doing 3 sets of 15 minutes using the captain’s wench every day. I had some stuff to take care of and couldn’t hang for a month (mid-september to mid-october), but did switch to lots (and I mean LOTS) of jelqing along with edging - I was inspired by a long-time member who did that to great effect before he started hanging (big horsey? Long horsey? He has a stuffed horse as his profile pic and has made massive gains).
Since I started-up again in mid-October, I continued with my previous 3 sets of 15 minutes. I’m at 8-10ish pounds now (I’m doing kg’s so I’m guesstimating).
I fairly recently read that Bib would hang with his legs up, so I’ve been hanging while sitting down with my legs on the desk in front of me and me slouching to that it feels more like BTC than straight down. Before this I felt all of the weight on my actual shaft, now I’m feeling it more in the ligs - though there is never any soreness ever (I read about people being sore the next day, what? Really?).
Oh, also FYI I curve up and slightly left, I read about a “steel cord” for those of us up-curvers, could this be stopping all gains?
So, it’s been about 10 months and I haven’t had a single gain. Pros out there, think it’s about time to call it quits? I’d rather not waste any more time doing this if there is no effect. Thanks for your help.
