Methods to Improve Recovery Rates
I wished to open a general discussion on tools, techniques, and methods that members here have used, with success, to improve their recovery rates from fatigue. As many of you know, one of the most important aspects of the way I view PE is in the recovery stage. The faster I recover from a phase where I overload my penis with fatigue for a few days, the faster I grow. So, it has been critical for me to not only find the best methods of fatiguing my penis for growth (the best stimuli), but also creating conditions that speed my recovery.
The most critical tools that I have found are included below. I hope you all may add your own experiences, as well as benefit from mine.
1. Eroset's Vein Oil (EVO)
This mixture of oils is incredible. I have used it on and off for about a year now, and I can say with complete certainty that it has had a MAJOR effect on my recovery rate. All sorts of surface area vascular difficulties encountered through heavy clamping and pumping are heavily encouraged to recover by the use of EVO. I apply it to my flaccid penis and put on an ankle length sock (fits perfectly for the job, and adds extra heat). Do not allow EVO to make you add more intensity to your workouts, it can only affect areas close to the surface (primarily - it is topical), so you still need proper rest.
2. Cold Water-Pumping
I use this to do two things. First, it allows my penis to cool down in an extended state - this supposedly promotes growth. Second, the ice water promotes a bunch of recovery aiding activities in the area (read firegoat’s post, linked). In a pumping routine, this will reduce lymph fluid build up (actively reduce, not just not encourage it further), aid the healing of inflamed areas, etc. I usually use two medium-sized ice cubes in an over-sized (extra long) cylinder filled with cold water and limit sets to 20 minutes. Sometimes I use 3 cubes for a 10 minute set, the time depends on the level of coldness, you do not want to injure yourself. Finally, do not enter the cold pumping session right after a heat session - allow the penis to reach room temperature first (advice of firegoat and I have personally seen the affects of not following this advice - don’t do it).
3. High Calorie Diet
I have never grown considerably when on a severely calorie restricted diet, even if it was rich in nutrients. I have grown the best when I consumed a balanced, richly nutritious, and slightly large diet (over my maintenance caloric level).
Obviously, this goes without saying. I sometimes find it beneficial to over-sleep. Clubber, the highly-motivated PE’er that he is, has been doing this as well, with the same benefits that I have seen.
What are your experiences and best recommendations to speed recovery?
