Progress or Illusion?
I’ve become slightly discouraged recently because my newbie gains only amounted to about 1/2 inch in length, if that. To make things worse, I’ve had a really low LOT—around 7 (8 on a good day).
Recently, I’ve really upped my stretching and cut back dramatically on any girth work. I jelq at 30-40% (about 30 minutes per day). I stretch at least twice a day for about 10-15 minutes at a pop, and with a lot of force. And, within the last 10 days or so, I started hanging with my new Bib Hanger. I mostly “hang” straight out, while sitting in a chair.
This morning, I had my first indications that I may be breaking through my “plateau.” I started playing with tugback after my stretching session, and, lo and behold, my LOT had increased!! I was easily an 8 and maybe a 9, which is a huge improvement and is the first clear evidence that my tunica is stretching.
I also noticed that my flaccid upward stretch now passes my navel by more than just a hair—another sign of improvement.
I haven’t yet measured, and I don’t think my numbers have changed much if any, but these indications clearly show that something is changing, and I think (hope) it’s for the better.
