A Newbie Again?
I’ve been thinking about a post Bib made a while ago regarding the gradual toughening of the tunica (the collagenous tissues thickening, because of PE-imposed stresses, over time). This appears to be an inevitable – and undesirable – side effect of PE. The irony, of course, being that we need to PE to grow, yet PE also makes the growth process continuously tougher.
This is one of the main 2 reasons why newbies shouldn’t attempt advanced workouts (the other reason being, obviously, injury). I’m a proponent of newbies establishing a minimal base workout. Don’t increase until you need to – i.e., gains have stopped. Often times, less is truly more.
But, for us veterans, we often toughen-up our cocks to the point they’re able to withstand a lot of abuse, while yielding very little in the way of new growth.
The remedy which has been suggested is a lay-off (hopefully resulting in the de-conditioning of those stronger, more stubborn collagenous tissues). This is where I’m now at. I cannot jelq any harder – nor am I willing to pull any harder – than I’m now capable (obviously, I could still manipulate the time/volume of those workouts – but I don’t have that much time at present to do so).
So, I’m thinking of a good lay-off, then trying to begin again as a newbie. Actually, I really only want another 1 – 1¼ inches of EL, and I’m okay with my girth (6”+). I’m considering a workout given to me by the only guy I know in “real life” who’s fessed up about PE to me (an old buddy I hooked up with at a bar, over many many drinks). But he told me that he went from 5” to 7” EL (BP or NBP unspecified). He outlined a very simple routine which I’m thinking of doing when I return from my lay-off:
Workout – done 7 days per week
1) Hot wrap (4-5 minutes)
2) Mild stretching (2-3 minutes)
3) Wet Jelqs *
4) Intense Stretching **
5) Hot wrap (3-4 minutes)
& dietary supplementation (2x multi-vitamin/mineral &, as he put it, “lots of ginseng”).
* He began wet jelqs at 100/day – 7 days per week. Every 2 weeks, he bumped up that amount by 50. He was eventually doing “over 600 each day.”
** The intense stretching he described seemed to be mostly “SO”, using both hands. He began that at “about 10 minutes” and added “a minute or 2” when he’d up his jelq numbers.
He said it took him less than a year to gain those 2 inches – and he’s managed to keep them after he quit PE (he quit at his wife’s insistence). I don’t know how effective this workout would be for a veteran, but I’m willing to give it a try (I’ve never PE’d 7 days per week, though – that might make this routine tougher than it first appears).
