Debate - Hanging vs. Manual Stretching

I personally haven’t tried hanging, because I always thought it had more risks than manual stretches, but, on the long run which one could give you more gains? And what are the “tension” stretches?

Here’s my take on this…

Manual stretching is simply great. After all, how could I say anything less when it gave me very close to 1” of length over a period of 1 year. Its minor downside is not being able to keep track of force which, obviously, didn’t prevent me from gaining. On the other hand, its major downside it hand fatigue, but this doesn’t comes into play after a while. My longest stretching sessions were ~1 hour long and after that much time under tension hands get really fatigued. Sweating doesn’t help either. I work out in the gym so I’m sure for some people fatigue would onset even faster. The solution is to split your routine into shorter ones, take a deconditioning break or start hanging. I’m doing all three.

As for hanging, I have very limited experience with homemade vacuum hanger which I don’t really count as proper hanging experience. Right now I’m experimenting with wrapping and it’s only a matter of days before I get seriously into hanging using the wench. Hanging doesn’t have the fatigue downside for obvious reasons and the upside is much easier track of force, but it has a much steeper learning curve, especially if you’re uncut (damn that wrapping to hell). Other than that, I’d say it’s very similar to stretching. I don’t see how one could work and not the other for the same person because mechanism is essentially the same. I guess it all comes down to personal preference. I hope hanging will show me as much love as stretching already has.

I think my hanging has finally allowed me to overcome my plateau and start growing again, something that manual stretching never did.

I find hanging to be controlled and predictable. You have a set weight, set time and force on your unit which manual stretching can never provide because of fatigue over time.

I don’t get why everybody is so worried about the weight. Weight counts nothing, hanging is not weightlifting. If you want to know how much efficient stress you are applying, measure your length : you want a longer dick, not a dick which can lift heavier weights. So how about: with manual stretching you can measure the lenght you are holding your stretched penis to, where with hanging I don’t see how?

Because it shows applied force?

Why do extender springs have marks that show traction (as in 500, 1000, 1500 grams applied) instead of small rulers that show elongation?

I don’t own commercial extenders, so I don’t know if really they don’t show length. But this proves nothing, the argument is the same: are we interested in length or force? Lenght of course.

I build a homemade extender exactly similar to the Max-xtender, a very simple device that shows no force applied, only the lenght your penis is stretched to; it has worked fine on me, as the commercial one has worked fine on many people (beside the problems caused by the loop-style).

Who was arguing?

I was merely stating a preference based on personal experience, which for me is using an attachment device to hang weights off my dick.

What I have experienced is that I have seen a small amount of measurable length by hanging (1/4”) after nearly a year and a half of no gain at all while clamping, manually stretching and occasionally resorting back to my old mechanical stretcher, so you can understand by bias in this regard.

My eventual goal of 8x6 now seems attainable since I began hanging.

I seem to be able to ride the fatigue level of my ligaments without increasing the weight and I’ve kept up a fairly detailed account here;

I hung hanged for the first time today.

In the next few weeks I will be beginning to hang from a pulley attached to the ceiling o f my basement office so that I may begin to attack the tunica as opposed to pulling the ligaments, and I will continue to post the results on the above thread.

I never said anybody was arguing A-unit, neither pointed any finger. I just made clear my thought on something that I ear often and that I think is a wrong assumption.

I hear you.

My enduring message in PE is that everyone is slightly different, and the mostly we have to learn by trial and error with the experiences of others as signposts.

Hanging is an excellent method for gaining length, but the methodology is the same as with manual stretching. Just different ways of applying the force.

The advantage for me is that I feel that it is very safe, I don`t have trouble with my grip and I can multi-task to some extent.

The disadvantage is that it is very time consuming, you need privacy and it is probably less efficient than manual stretching (more force), unless you find a way to actually meaningfully multitask. The work I wanted to do was usually the type where I really needed to concentrate, so I did not really get much done.

I`m sure that there are just as many good length stories from manual work as there is from hanging. There is nothing magical about hanging.

That`s great.

Would you mind sharing your routine? How many days per week? What angles?

I want to start gaining length again, but I fear I may have to get back into the hanger. Would like to seriously try manual work first. :)

Nothing revolutionary, just newbie routine with progressively increasing stretching time. Standard 10 minute warm up with rice sock, all angles, 2 on 1 off or 3 on 1 off and that’s about it. Later down the road I did some fulcrum stretching (V and A) as well.

Ah yes, multitasking, that’s one of hanging’s great upsides that I forgot to mention. Given that you have required privacy, there is so much you can do while hanging. Watching movies, playing games, reading, studying, browsing, whatever, hanging does the work for you.

I could work all day put the hanger on and set the timer when it hits 20min take it off. I couldn’t imagine stretching for 1hr wow you must have great endurance.

It wasn’t a 1 hour set of course, I usually stretched for 2-5 minutes at a time (depending on grip quality and hand fatigue) before switching hands. But yeah, it gets tiring.

Come together not which is better.

I was thinking of combining all three techniques and here is my logic behind this:
Do a warm up with some stretches for about 20 mins. This will get everything limbered up and ready to go.
Hang with the most weight possible for you, meaning whatever in your experience is comfortable. This is done to create those micro tears that I think everyone agrees on as being
Essential.
Lastly doing an all day stretch to keep the micro tears apart and force your body to add length to the ligaments to repair these tears.

Any comments welcome.
