Great work! Did you find any commonalities with girth gainers? I’m thinking both volume/time and exercise selection. I did notice the comment on drinking sufficient amounts of water.
I suppose there are some loose commonalities. In all honesty, I did not find any strong commonalities, there was a great diversity in the methods used. So what I did find was a diverse set of optimizations that I could use to give myself the best odds of getting good gains. As I tried out all the ideas, I gained with most of them along the way.
Of course the most important is long term consistency with some routine that expands girth beyond normal erection size.
Adequate hydration just before and during workouts - to keep the blood volume, and blood viscosity, in the ideal range for maximum erections.
General high EQ and edging. Good cardiovascular health, good libido. By doing the workouts on a maximum bone, the expanded workout size will of course be that much bigger as well.
Big gainers tend to (not always!) have big routines. Whether that means more frequent workouts, or longer duration workouts, or more intense workouts - or some combination of all those.
A unique balance of work and rest that works for them, in other words they have mastered their own growth response, PI’s, etc. A learned familiarity with what it feels like to be gaining. The feel of a productive workout, and the feel of a productive recovery, healing, growth from that workout.
A tendency (not always!) to go beyond basic manuals into pumping and clamping, or simply more intense manuals.
They tend to make their own gear, or at least be willing to customize their gear to their own preferences. If they think some specific device will help them gain or target a specific area, they make it happen.’
Likewise they tend to experiment and make up their own manuals, whatever works best for expansion or targeting a specific area.
Ejaculating slightly less often than normal (or even less frequently than that). This increases the ease and duration of erections, making for better workouts. It also significantly increases testicle size (scientifically proven), and in my opinion also increases shaft size by a very minor amount (about 0.1” x 0.05” for me). It also improves recovery and healing by freeing up the body energy that would otherwise be used on sperm production. Certainly this is not a requirement to gain, but I noticed a higher than normal percent of big gainers who credit some level of sperm retention as a factor in their success.
Being erect for girth workouts. Seems obvious. Basically having a high erection level acts as a sort of shield (kind of like an air bag) that allows one to utilize stronger forces, higher pressure, and so on.
Having some sort of post workout “stayer” device that maintains some plumpness and pressure. Bib’s theraband wrap, the Ace Thera-P magnetic bandage, the cock coil, the namba.
That’s all I can think of off the top of my head. I want to note importantly that I did not notice a specific exercise selection that had more big gainers than another. As I mentioned there was a tendency toward clamping and pumping, and generally a higher intensity level (or bigger workouts) than your average PE’er. But in terms of a specific girth technique that reigned above all others, I don’t think it exists. They are all forms of increasing internal pressure to expand beyond normal erection size, and so they all work. Optimization comes down to getting the most expansion, for the most time, with the most comfort, most enjoyment, and least risk possible.
I also want to say, I used to think that not everyone could get big gains (that was mainstream PE thought when I started). Many people doubted 20+ ci gainers. I knew they were possible, and wanted to find out why some got them and others didn’t. Now I think anyone can get big gains, whether it’s girth or length. It’s only a matter of learning how, and then simply doing it for years and years. The physiological growth response that is responsible for big gains exists in all of us, or at least anyone with a healthy body and penis.
