It does not make sence that such a huge varition of result producing programs, there must be an underlining program, which if most people doing PE would get most results from…
I think the other problem is that manual exercises really are almost impossible to accurately calibrate. On man’s “moderate” jelque, is probably anothers “hard” jelque.
Its interesting in pumping, where we at least have a chance at calibration, most will agree that 5 in hg is toward the top end of a productive range. It may very well be we could come to some agreement in many other methods if it was accurately calibrated.
But even in pumping you have guys reporting things like, “I don’t even feel it unless I take it up to 10 in hg!” Is this due to the vacuum gauge not working or is it really that big a difference in tissue toughness? We can only know in a lab setting.
Even in hanging, which should be fairly accurate when guys report the wt, there is a very large range that guys report results in.
So, really, what you say makes sense, but it really does seem that there is a very wide range of force/time that guys have gotten results from. It would be great to have a few million bucks (quid) and answer these questions once and for all.
