6 week PE break, results and questions

6 week PE break, results and questions

As some of you know I had surgery about 6 weeks ago. Because of this surgery I was unable to do PE. I decided to do a comparison of before and after the 6 week break incase anyone was curious. Quick background on my PE activity. I started early October of 05 and did the newbie routine for 3 months, 1 month wet jelqs then went to dry. After that I started adding clamping to my routine. I took sundays off and did a combination of stretching, jelqing and clamping the other 6. Here is the before/after stats…

Pre 6 Week Break:
Hard - 6 x 4.75
Flaccid - 5 x 4.25

Post 6 Week Break:
Hard - 5.75 x 4.5
Flaccid - 4.5 x 4.25

So I lost a little flaccid and erect, but my flaccid still hangs a lot larger than it did before I started PE. My erections stayed very hard and my penis still “feels” conditioned. I tried to do a few hundred kegels daily during the last 6 weeks when able to without pain.

Now for some questions about getting back into PE. Taking 6 weeks off I know my penis has de-conditioned some. Its just a question of how much and do I need to go back to step one with the newbie routine? I was thinking of doing the newbie routine for 2-3 weeks then adding clamping back in. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

If you’re really concerned about it, maybe just the first week back in do 100 less jelq’s or so (increasing ~20-25 each time), maybe 5 less minutes of stretching (increasing ~1 minute each time), then just continue where you left off. Given your unit has gotten somewhat accustomed to not being “hit”, beginning PE again can ‘shock’ it and even give you a/some ‘explosive gain(s)’.

I forgot what thread it was, but somebody started a thread about ligament healing and how they change when they’re not being “hit”. I think it said that after a break, your ligament(s) are 1/5 the strength that they were before the break, though after a little while they get back to the strength they were prior to your ‘break’. This is beneficial to PE because if your ligaments are 1/5 the strength they were prior to your break, then you can essentially use 1/5 the force and achieve just as much, if not more gains than if you were using the same force you were using immediately prior to your break. Or, if you were to use any more than 1/5 the force you were using prior to your break, then you’d already be hitting your unit harder than before - and with less weight/force(!).

This is why deconditioning breaks have proven beneficial for those who run into a ‘plateau’ - before the deconditioning break, their unit had pretty much gradually built up a ‘defense’ that could withstand any attack you threw at it. After the break, their unit had gotten accustomed to NOT being “hit” and thus lowered it’s defenses down. What does this mean? Well, if you attack it when it’s defenses are down, it’s not expecting or even thinking that you’ll be ‘attacking’ it any time soon, so when you do attack it, you catch it off guard and thus you can inflict multiple times more damage than if you would’ve attacked it when it’s defenses were up. By inflicting more damage, you will achieve more gains (by the way, not oh-sh*t-I-just-tore-a-ligament kind of damage, you DON’T want that kind of damage :p ). It’s harder to inflict more damage upon it when it’s defenses are built up because well, it’s defenses are ready for and expecting an attack at any second. Sure you can still inflict damage when it’s defenses are up, but it’s a lot harder to do as compared to catching it when it’s defenses are down.

Hope this helps and if you have any further questions feel free to ask them and I/somebody else will definitely be glad to help you with them!

No dedication + No self-discipline = No Gains. This goes for working out as well. It\'s elementary math kids.

Your plan to go back to the newbie routine for a couple of weeks is a good one and remember to cut back on the pressure you use. Since you have done it before, just watch closely for signs of excessive trauma and make reductions as necessary. Since you are starting over, you have a chance to do things right that you might have originally done wrong. The main point is to just not rush things.

Welcome back!

I am big fan of smart PE and decon breaks. You’ll most likely recover your lost gains within 10-14 days.

While the newbie routine is good, if I were in your shoes here’s what I’d do:
Warm-up for 5-10 minutes using a hot water bottle ~115-120F
Jelq 5-7 minutes. Add 1 minute each workout until reach 20-30 minutes or gains stall.
One day on, one day off.

After that, either go to decon again for 8-12 weeks or begin to phase in clamping. Gradually build up to 3 x 10 minutes of standard clamping with 50-100 dry jelqs in between sets. See if you can get some more easy gains. Then decon.

Good luck,
