No clamping gains, possible loss. Need help
I know this isn’t a newbie issue but I am not allowed to post it elsewhere. I have been clamping for about a month now, and haven’t seen a millimeter of growth. The past week or so it seems like there has actually been a bit of loss, but I have been sick so that’s probably a factor. I am currently taking several days off and will reevaluate my routine.
I am basically 7x4.5, so yeah, I’ve decided I REALLY need to knock out girth once and for all. My ultimate goal would be 7.5x5.5, but I would happily retire from PE with a 7.25x5.25. I have already tried bends, Uli’s and Horse440s to no avail, although I’ve always isolated them in routines— all of the warnings in forums have stopped me from throwing several in a routine together. Finally I said fuck it, lets pull the big guns out and clamp. Let me try to explain how I’ve been doing it, so if anything is blatantly wrong you can help me out here:
I start out with a 10 min warm up wrap. Then, I do 5x 30 stretches all directions to loosen up. Then I start clamping, although the past week or so I added in 50 wet jelqs before the clamping. I started out on 3x5 minute clamping sets just to get my feet wet, and worked my way up to 3x 8 minute sets, with 5 minute rests in between. 10 minute warm down after.
I would get 80-90% hard, wrap a sock around the base (I tried a few other wraps but they weren’t very good) a bunch of times so the cable clamp can fit, then clicked it on to about 6-7 clicks after the erection subsides a bit. I’d stimulate it a bit more and readjust the clicks until I see some expansion happening, then leave it there for 8 minutes.
The last several times I’ve been able to get a .25” expansion while clamping, which would remain for maybe 10-20 minutes after, but that’s it. Nothing’s really permanent here, although maybe I could change the 1 day on/ 1 day off schedule I’m currently on.
Also, as I have read in some other posts, My base girth seems to be suffering a bit too. I know it’s supposed to be the biggest gainer of all, so please don’t just tell me I must not be doing it right (like the responses in the other posts), unless you can point to something specific I’m doing wrong.
