This is exactly what I hoped would happen when I made my original post. IMHO, Bigger said it best when he stated that our goal is CONTROLLED DAMAGE. We have to have those microtears in the ligs and the tunica in order to foster new cell growth. As my healing continues from OVERDOING IT, I am beginning to recognize the importance of creating the damage and then keeping the pressure on at a reduced level for as many hours of the day as possible. This is the challenge. How to keep the right amount of pressure on and foster cell growth rather than put too much pressure on and begin to degenerate. The method is what we need to discover. I recently read Zep’s workout progression. I really liked it. The only thing that I see missing in his program is the continuing pressure to foster new cell growth. If we look at Bigger’s routine, he worked up to hanging about 6 hours actual hang time per day. However, it was his method of reducing the weight and controlling the damage that I think resulted in his incredible gains. He was always relaxed when hanging. He always hung a little before bed. This whole methodology produced micro-tears, fostered new cell growth and provided just enough rest to avoid degeneration. I like Modemmer’s test involving the use of intervals of PE. AlthoughI don’t plan to be in one of the groups, I am also going to take the interval approach when I start back in about two weeks. I am also going to figure out a good ADS solution. Unfortunately, since I had my circumcision botched as an infant, I don’t have a large coronal ridge. This means that I am going to have to come up with something like a mini-Bib hanger to use as an ADS. In any event, I think we are onto something here.
If I can encourage you guys to do one thing, that would be to think of the TOOLS (devices) to use to keep the pressure on with the highest level of comfort possible.
