Welcome Pillars :)
1. Bib is a very interesting character. I have spoken to him on his independent forums several times, about a year ago, when I was still trying to gain length. From my understanding (at least on his forum), he attributed a large part of his girth gains to hanging. ThunderSS, do you know if this is the case?
2. “Cementing gains” scares me a bit. I’m not sure where the term came from, but I have a suspicion that it came from pumping, because there cementing gains actually means something. What does cementing gains mean when you’re clamping? And what does it mean if gains are retractable, ie why would we need to cement gains?
——-> Has anyone lost clamping gains? I’m not talking about engorgement, I mean losing gains that remained for over two weeks of no clamping. Has this happened?
Edit: we also need to figure out what the red bumps are. I’ve read BG once say that the large bumps could be small blood vessels that had burst. My intuitive feeling for the past few months (and I get these regularly, even now) was that even the tiny bumps were small burst blood vessels. Does anyone think to the contrary?
bib never claimed girth gains from hanging, only base girth. He did EU’s for girth.
Cementing gains when youre clamping means you should keep clamping when you reached your goal but lessen the amount of fatigue you get over the course of weeks/months to zero and keep clamping for a good while without reaching fatigue at all. Same is applicable to his hanging theory.
I do believe gains are “retractable”.
