It is an hard subject. Although it could make sense a correlation, I don’t see any specific link between PI’s and TA strains, frankly. You should ask the same question to Sparkyx and Firegoat, maybe they can see something I’m missing.
Again, hard to say. I can just throw in some very personal guesses; first one, sometimes people refers their penis becomes more pliable; I think this could be a sign that there has been minor damage that is being filled with more collagenous tissue and/or a greater amount of elastin. When this state of pliability has been passed, I think too much damage has been caused.
Second, sometimes people speaks about the feeling of ‘itching’ or a ‘dull ache’. They often believe it is a good sign, that you are on the right path for gains; my opinion is that it is a sign that you have to take a rest - at least for a week.
Another sign is kinda a light burnig: I got this when using an extender; I think it is a sign that you have to stop using the extender for that day, because it resembles the feeling of an inflammation and because once I got this feeling my gains seemed to stop.
As far as I can say, there is no specific feeling that can suggests gains are coming : when I had gains, I had no ‘fatigue’ or ‘itching’ or anything like that previously. Any kind of even very minor discomfort is a sign that working more is going to harm your gains, IMHO.
Sorry, but I haven’t much more to offer. :)
Nah that’s already great and exactly what I thought. What you describe as anecdotal evidence is in the same domain the PI’s are.
One has to hear into his own body/dick :D . + Some common sense..
I don’t think that there will ever be a perfect “how to” that works for everyone the same - impossible like finding the perfect body workout for everyone..
But like how we try to get near that in the pe community. All guys thinking and working on it produce a good amount of wisdom.
I can take very much with me what I read in this thread and some others.
I’m now in the process of doing a routine that incorporates all this stuff that makes sense while monitoring my dick thoroughly.
I think I open up a progress thread where anyone can follow.
Many thanks for now marinera.
