440's and Clamping - Differences?
I have some thoughts and questions on the technical and TUT (Time Under Tension) differences between these two techniques. Now personally, I’m not conditioned or experienced enough to work either of these into my routine being a noob at this, but I’m still curious and experimenting.
With the 440, I understand to use my hand to clamp off a full erection at the base of the penis, kegel in blood and tighten, then use my other hand to form a tight “OK” with the fingers and slide it over the head. I have tried this and it’s very difficult, as the penis feels as though it is being forced into the base and it causes a lot of discomfort, almost like it wants to give way to one side or the other at times as well. I found that by lightly collapsing fingers over the head in a cascading fashion and applying pressure, I’m able to force the blood into the shaft with more control and I’m also able to hold this for quite some time. I have very strong hands, and good endurance with them as well. I can actually hold a 440 for up to 5 minutes.
Now for my questions on comparison to clamping. So how does this differ from clamping except for TUT? Would some consider the 440 a safer route to go for girth for purposes of control, even though more blood is being forced into the shaft with the 440? Why do some claim exceptional gains with clamping which basically holds a fixed amount of blood in the penis as opposed to 440’s with force more blood into the shaft. I ask this last question because I haven’t read that many squeeze their glans during clamping. I guess I’m wondering if clamping is just another way to force blood into the penis with the assistance of a tool which makes me believe that any/all of these blood forcing exercises really just amount to TUT.
Anyways, these of course are my thoughts on things I don’t know as much about…Oh yeah, and TUT is a bodybuilding term, I just thought I’d add it into this context since is appears to be applicable. Hope you don’t mind the addition of this acronym.
