No jelqing, just hanging and clamping
Anyone tried this? I used to think of jelqing as the backbone of PE — that it was the meat and potatoes and other stuff was supplementary sorta. However, I’ve been toying with the idea of going with more the total divide and conquer approach with the idea that maybe clamping is the most efficient way of developing girth and hanging is the most efficient way of gaining length. In part, my reasoning is that there is a race between gains and conditioning. That is, when you do exercises, you are creating gains/growth, but at the same time you are also increasing the strength of the force which tries to stop you from gaining — the “conditioning”, or thickening/toughening of tunica.
So, I’m thinking maybe by taking the two most focused exercises, it might be possible to maximize the ratio of growth to toughening/conditioning.
Another couple things that pointed me in this direction are (a) the inconvenience of lube, cleaning up, etc of jelqing — it forces a certain order in things in that I have to do it before showering and then reheat, etc to do other exercises (b) that Dr Adams in the chem PE thread apparently feels that jelqing is bad for toughening tunica and, rather, prescribes his patients to only do stretching even though his patients gain well in girth on the program.
Anyway, I’d like to hear people’s experiences with this kind of approach.
