Ok, so the points about there is an agreement are:
a) use heat;
b) add some jelqs to any routine;
c) stretch SO, SD and to the sides.
Now it’s time to focus on the most problematic points: frequencey and force. What’s the threshold of force for an intermediate/advanced PEer? What’s the minimal amount of force that will give measurable gains after a reasonable amount of consistent use? Your guesses.
This is a very cool thread - an effort to build a consensus within the community. I like it.
I don’t know if I qualify as an “experienced” PE guy or not. I’ve been doing it for about 7 months and have gained a bit more than 1 1/4” inches, mostly by hanging & manuals. But I’d say what I’ve learned is to listen to my PIs and be consistent. I like to reach fatigue after every hanging set, be a bit sore at the end of the day, but have the soreness disappear by morning so I can have another go at it.
Live long and prosper.
