Nasty bruises and stuff
So I’ve been trying to do a girth routine. I finished hanging last month, took 2-3 weeks off and then started a light routine of some stretches for maintenance, and 5 minutes of jelqing. But I keep getting these nasty bruises from it. Typically I will have jelqed for 2-3 minutes before one appears and today I saw it happen.
It actually appears on a vein, when I stroke upwards with the jelq, a vein starts to pump up in one place, gets engorged and then turns purple. It takes a few days for it to fade away even with arnica.
What I initially thought was that the soft tissues were weak, and needed some conditioning, but I’m only doing 5 minutes of jelqing, and not exactly intense jelqing. But as it happens on a small section of a vein that engorges, it appears as though the blood flow ahead of the engorged part is blocked or restiricted, making the vein pump up at that point and some blood vessels burst or some shit, causing the bruise. Another thought I had was that my erection level crept up during the jelqing and increased the pressure too much. I always hot wrap before and it happens with dry or wet jelqing.
So I’m kinda stuck, I can’t hit the heavy girth stuff that will get me gains because I’d probably get like 20 bruises, and I can’t condition up to where I can handle the advanced stuff either.
