Hardgainer in Bodybuilding = Hardgainer in PE?
this is my first post, so the first thing I would like to do is to thank all of you for sharing your knowledge about PE!
Let me say a few words about myself:
As you can see from my stupid username, I didn’t think that PE could work in the beginning (@thunder: is it possible to change the username? :-) ). This changed when I saw my first gains, which were humble but undeniable. So far, I have gone from
nbpel 14,5 cm or 5.7 “
eg 11,5 cm or 4.53 “
nbpel 15,5 cm or 6.1”
eg 12 cm or 4.73 “
thanks to stretching and hard jelqing (more like ULIs). I work out 5 days a week approximately 50 minutes a day. It took me roughly 4 months to get the results posted above, so I consider myself a “hardgainer”, compared to guys like DLD and all the others you know well.
With regard to fitness training and bodybuilding, I am an extreme hardgainer with a height of 188 cm (6’2”) and a weight which has been around 67 kg (150 lbs) for years, even with fitness training (volume style). Today I am finally at 83 kg (180 lbs) thanks to Stuart McRobert and his books, but there’s still a long way to go for me.
So, I’m finally getting to my point: Is being a hardgainer in bodybuilding somehow related to being a hardgainer in PE? Both have to do with the recovery ability of the body, and maybe it would be wiser for many guys to train less often to get maximum results, like it is recommended by the HIT style of bodybuilding that works for many hardgainers. I find the HIT philosophy simple and convincing since your body grows when you rest, not when you train, and it needs time to recover, in my case a lot. Is it the same with PE?
I couldn’t test my theory so far in just 4 months, but I hoped that many of you guys could help me with feedback :-) . Anyway, I switched to less frequent PEing and listening to my body (or at least one part of it :-) ) instead of following a workout schedule.
What I am interested in is if you are doing fitness training as well as PE, are you a hardgainer in one of these two things or in both or in none of them?
I’m trying to get a poll working together with this post, but since this is my first one (post as well as poll), please have some patience.
