Breaking The Plateau
BREAKING THE PLATEAU
A few days ago I put up a post on the gains I have made over the past three years. I have gone from 5.5” BPEL to 8” BPEL and upto 5.25”EG. You can read it here:-
Over this whole period my main exercise, and for the most time, my only exercise has been Dry Jelqs. This is why I disagree that Jelqing is mainly a girth exercise. I say this because I have made a substantial gain in length and a little in girth from jelqing. At this point I would like to mention the level of erection that worked best for me. Over the three years I have experimented jelqing with different levels of erections, but the best workouts I achieved were those done at a 70-80% erection. This is where I could feel my penis really expand as I jelqed the blood forwards, and jelqing at this level of erection would leave my penis hanging huge after the workout.
For those who have read my other post (linked above) you will notice that I PE’d on and off for the first two years. So how on and off was it?…in one word ‘Very’. I would PE for a couple of months than take two or three months off. Back for a month than two or three months off. When I would workout I would jelq for about 30-45 mins. In the third year I was more dedicated and worked out on a consistent bases. I was jelqing for 30-45 mins almost everyday with a few off days a month. I carried on making gains like this for a few months, than the gains stalled, I had hit my plateau. I tried a few things to break the plateau but had no success, until I made four changes to the way I worked out.
1. De-conditioning Break
3. Change in Exercise
4. A New Exercise (I started to do a new exercise that I developed)
I will talk about each of the above in more detail here.
Stopping to look back at what I was doing wrong and what I was doing right I realised that most of my gains where made after I returned to working out after having taken a break. Obviously two or three years ago I didn’t know about de-conditioning and my long breaks where due to laziness more than anything else. At this point I think that it is worth noting that I noticed that the longer the break, the easier the gains came after returning to PE’ing. I feel that depending on the amount of workload exerted on the penis over a matter of weeks the longer the de-conditioning period required. In my experience I found that the best results came after a three month break. I know that it is very hard to make yourself take a long break from PE (specially after seeing some gains) but in the long run it pays off.
Xenolith and Hobby have a couple of interesting posts on this that need to be read.
It is a common misconception that the harder you work the more you will gain. It is a trap that I fell into during my sessions. As I gained more and more experience with jelqing and erection levels I also intensified my workouts, at one point I was performing sessions of nearly two hours. Although this felt like an awesome workout (my penis was seriously fatigued after such a session), upon reflection, I now know that it was counter productive. I was clearly overworking the penis, and thus not allowing the cells to regenerate. In this respect PE workouts are like a bodybuilding workout. What do I mean by this? Simply that, as with bodybuilding if you overwork the muscle you don’t make gains due to the amount of cell damage.
I found that I was getting better results and a better workout when I cut the amount of time spent jeqing down to 30-45 mins.
CHANGE IN EXERCISE
One of the changes I made to my routine was to shock the penis into growth by changing the angle of attack. Once again this is like the approach implemented in bodybuilding. Bodybuilders will shock their muscles into growth be working them out at various angles and also by changing exercises. In keeping with this approach I added a stretching routine to my workout.
IMHO the above three steps should be more than enough to break a plateau, and thus the fourth step implemented by me is something that worked for me, and the reason I am posting it here is that I feel it is a good exercise for length.
A NEW EXERCISE
I don’t now if this exercise has been described before, but I couldn’t find any reference to it. This exercise is very intense and the pressure build up in the penis is very immense (you can really feel it expand).
HOW IS IT PERFORMED
1. First you need to get a rock hard erection, than manually clamp the base of your penis with your index finger and thumb, making an OK sign and palm facing up. So your balls should be in your palm. (I do this with my right hand). I also do a few kegels before clamping, this insures a rock hard and fully engorged erection.
2. with your other hand (left hand) make another OK sign with your thumb and index finger and grip your penis on the shaft right next to the first OK sign (the manual clamp) but this time palm facing down.
3. Gently squeeze the new Ok sign (left hand), you will feel a build up of pressure in your penis and will be able to see it physically expand.
4. You can now bring in the middle finger (of the left hand) and squeeze the underside of you penis with that too. The pressure will become greater, and you will notice a greater expansion.
5. Hold this position for a count of ten seconds. Than slowly release one finger at a time. As your penis gets a bit accustomed to the exercise, you can hold the position for a greater count (e.g. 15 then 20 seconds).
This exercise must not be performed by newbies as the pressure build up in the penis is very high. Also, anyone else trying this, does so at his own risk.
At the moment I am on a decon break, and will resume PE at the end of February.
My routine will be the same as it was just before the break.
*Varying V stretches with A stretches
New exercise 4x15second holds.
That’s it. Total time needed is about 1 hour. I do my workout in the evenings before bed, thus allowing the healing to take place while I sleep.
I hope that the info above proves to be of some help to some of the hard gainers.
If anyone does try the new exercise can you please give us some feed back.
