Anyone else having trouble with erect clamping? Any advice?
First, a late happy new PE year to all of you from me. Let`s make some gains this year! :)
Now, to the subject of erect clamping, EQ and gains.
Erect clamping is an exercise that I really like and really believe in, but my penis does not agree with me in recent years. I seem to recall that I had some positive experiences the first time I clamped many years back, but in the later years, I invariably end up with poor EQ, shrinkage (not permanent) and no gains. Actually, the last time I tried it seriously, it seemed to start out really well and I thought I was on my way to girth heaven, but then, nothing, and I had to quit because of poor EQ and shrinkage.
I have never been one to use extreme intensity, always clamp with padding using only one clamp and usually I have never done more than 3 X 10 minutes and built up to that from 5-6 minute sets.
Right now, I`m comfortable with a pumping and jelqing routine which gives me positive PIs, on average a very good EQ, decent flaccid hang, etc. However, I do think clamping may be a better exercise for girth and pumping is also more of a hazzle with the equipment, clean-up, hiding it, etc. Seeing that I will be moving around some this year, clamping would be more stealthy for me and I want to try it one more time and see if I can make it work.
With pumping, I always perform ten minutes of jelqing before the 1st set in the pump. I wonder if that type of “warm-up” and pre-stretching of the tissues could in any way be beneficial in a clamping routine? In the past, I only warmed up and then put on the clamp.
Maybe I should start out superlight, with only 2-3 sets X 2-3 minutes? Increasing very slowly?
I have to admit that I may have been too speedy increasing volume in the past and that may explain some of my issues. Still, I recall some other members saying how they did not get clamping to work for them, so maybe it`s not for everyone? One guy said that clamping killed his erections for months and he did not do any PE except for kegels during that recovery period. Later, this guy added clamping and seemingly with great success and no issues. I also seem to remember that Sta-Kool said something about clamping not working for him.
Curious to hear if anyone got any input on this. Especially if there are guys that did not get it to work initially, but found a way around it. :)
Thanks in advance,
