Does it really matter to you?

Really, are you arguing over my results, OR is this about you wanting to be right to best me?

Honestly, who cares.

I started around puberty and took advantage of it, AND THEN managed to still make great gains since then.

So what’s your point?

Dude, you need to calm down. Reading your posts is a bit like listening to a teenager who’s just taken 5 lines of coke after having a fight with his parents.

Your opinion is welcome but your tone needs a little work if you want to be listened to and appreciated (which you must do because otherwise there’s no rationale for posting your opinion on a forum).

For the record, I actually have some sympathy with your perspective on the place PE should take in ones life. A healthy mind is by far the most useful sexual asset any of us have and obsessive PE can threaten that. However, I do think that the combined wisdom of veterans (including their overlapping and sometimes conflicting theories) has utility when it comes to working out a decent regime that doesn’t undermine a healthy mind and body. To say otherwise really is just naive arrogance.

I wish you well.

Reading back trough some of your posts, and the feedback on your communication style you seem to ignore, I can only conclude you have some aggression issues (correct me if I am wrong… Since I don’t know you) (or is it the relative anonymity of Internet that makes it so much easier to to behave like this?)
Take care man, I wish you well. I’m not going to reply to your comment b/c it is not worth it and frankly, I’m sure it’ll trigger another insult. Just ask yourself: why am I so angry?

Oh look what happened….. Your dick is smaller and the blood vessels have shrunken so much you can’t even get a good erection anymore. It’s flawed logic to begin with and killing motivation left and right. In short it’s a dumb idea to begin with.

Boy o’ boy you know it all don’t you? You know so much, but remember, what is good for you does not mean it is good for everybody.
you post as you are a drill Sargent. Calm down with your whip posts.

Look TGD I like you and I think you are very articulate, but have you went back to read your own posts? Remember your thread when your wife
left you? You thought and posted what would happen because you knew everything did you, but you didn’t, did you? TGD, some people are full of
shit and I am not posting that you are, but don’t move yourself into to the area where you can be considered a controller who is full of shit, because
you are going, in my opinion, there.

Do what you do and let these guys do what they want to do. They are only asking questions to decide what they want to try. Not everybody here
watches porn on a regular basis. Your advice is good, but don’t give them your opinion and slap them in their face with your white glove.

Calm down dude, we are dealing with some members here that are students. They are just asking. Decon breaks worked for me, but that does not
mean it will work for anyone else. Remember that, and your experience worked for you as well, but it may not mean it will work for others, okay? We want
to here of your experience and we welcome it, but don’t push your way as if you are the law.

Wow, all good points.

Actually it’s a mixture of all three.

I’m wired differently, high functioning aspie. So if I sounds like a hard ass drill seargent (love that analogy), it’s because I tend to write more like a ‘how to’ owners manual’ and use less emotions over all. And when I try to be funny and act cocky I get called an asshole more often. I’m not trying to make excuses here, just thought I would clear up any misconceptions. I’m not a coke head either, but don’t we all have out manic moments :) . It’s probably also the time of day I come to use the internet across the street. When I get wifi back at my apartment things my comments will probably be a lot nicer and a lot shorter.

Cheers all!

I thought I’d offer my own anecdotal evidence here. I cannot claim to know what works for all people, only what worked for me. Here it goes:

I have been exercising for almost 3 years and every 6 months or so I take a deconditioning break. I generally have a pretty rigorous exercise plan - roughly 5 times a week and twice a day. When I hit a plateau, I wait about 2 weeks to a month, then I take a deconditioning break (to cement gains). TGD said not to completely cut out PE, and that’s what I did. During my 1-2 month deconditioning breaks, I still jelqed once or twice a week, with lower intensity/force and fewer reps. I did this so my EQ wouldn’t suddenly drop dramatically and so that my erections that occur in everyday life also could could keep my penis in an enlarged state for a longer period of time. By doing it this way, I avoided most (if not all) shrinkage/losses during the deconditioning break, and also was able to grow significantly after I resumed my regular routine.

While I don’t necessarily agree that a lower intensity copy of your routine is better than a “stop cold-turkey” deconditioning break, I believe that a few jelqs here and there can certainly be beneficial during your deconditioning break. It keeps your EQ up, it minimizes shrinkage/losses, and perhaps it even makes you more likely to want to return to PE after feel your break is over.

Maybe my story can provide some insight for others.

PS - I have gained more than 2 inches in BPEL and more than 1 inch in girth. My brief career can be found in this thread for those interested: Less than 4 months in, should I retire already

Just some personal experience: Deconditioning breaks do wonders. I haven’t done any PE since late April and I haven’t lost any of my gains. And thats not all - I seem to have gained a bit, because I’m easily 6” BPEL, not just on a good day and when pressing as hard as I can. Also, my girth has gone back to 4.75”. Overall - I’m soon going to start PE’ing agian, but I’m going to do decon breaks every 3-4 months now. :)


RE-Started (01.10.2012): 4.75'' NBPEL, 4.33'' EG (overall), 3'' NBPFL --- Now: 5.1'' NBPEL, 4.75'' EG (overall), 3.5'' NBPFL

Short-term goal: 5.5'' NBPEL, 4.5'' EG (overall), 3.5'' NBPFL --- Long term goal: 7.5'' NBPEL, 5.5'' EG (overall), 5'' NBPFL

Wish me luck! :)

I’m on a decon break from April and do still jelq, but the ten hours a week hanging wasn’t working.

I am going to rest until September at least and then make some PE decisions; whether to return to hanging or explore other methods, like pumping.

I’m not thinking about right now, just getting on with life.

I don’t seem to have lost any size, and when I reverse jelq I get huge girth expansion now that I’m not hanging.


Began December 2009 at 5 7/8" length and 5" girth.

As of December 5th 2012 7 3/8" BPEL and 6 1/8" base girth.

Going for the magic 8"x6"

Here’s another update on my experience with decon breaks:

So I have been on a plateau for at least 1.5 year. Earlier, I reported that a short decon break didn’t help at all.
I now took 4 months off, during which I did nothing (and I mean nothing). After the 4 months, I had not lost any length (I suppose that’s really good news). I then restarted with my usual manual stretching routine, and I have now gained 0.5 cm after another 4 months of doing PE. I now plan to continue another 4 months at least to ‘cement’, and then consider taking 4-6 months off again.

So, it seems decon breaks DO work. Albeit in my case modestly. I’m very pleased anyway.

Best,
Gus

I’ve had quite a few “decon” breaks. I haven’t noticed that they have had any significant positive effects on gains when starting PE again. On the plus side I haven’t really lost any real gains either, especially length, other than a slight loss of EQ which means slightly smaller girth (but that comes back within days of starting jelqing again for me).

In the last year I’ve lost about 3/8” of length and about the same girth from recon breaks and presently I’m on a break to improve my EQ which has really worked.

What has happened is that I’ve become insecure about my size again.

Such is life.

I ended up taking about 2 months off because of a new job that totally ruined my schedule. I also stopped working out as intensely, and just caught up on sleep. I was kind of burned out with all the PE and not seeming to make any gains (I FREELY admit, it was unrealistic to think after 2 and a half months, I should have some major results).

Anyway, I edged some mornings to wake up, and stopped that because I’d rather have the extra 10/15 min of sleep. But then I noticed my morning wood started coming back (during my PE time, it had kinda gone away… ), and a few morning was almost painful.

So I came up with a new workout and schedule, and so far, it’s working amazing. I’m not going to measure until June 1, but I’m already noticing my flaccid is longer and my erections seem fuller. My main goal is girth gains.


6/15/13 - 6.5" NBEL, 6.9" BPEL, 5" MSEG (modified 12/12/13 - I've never measured 6.75" BPEL, so not sure why I listed that)

12/12/13 - 6.75" NBEL, 7.2 BPEL, 5" MSEG

Goal - 7" NBEL, 7.5" BPEL, 5.5" MSEG

Erection quality is the key while doing PE.

I broke that rule for too long.
