soreness/time off

soreness/time off

I have never been good about sticking to a “set” routine. Just like my workouts at the gym, I change my PE sessions pretty much each time I do it, either varying the time, intensity or exercises, and I am ALWAYS sore the next day. I feel soreness where the ligs attach, in the base, in the shaft and even in the glans. I will PE again the next morning, even tough I am sore from the stretching the night before, so you could say I am always sore to some degree. It’s very hard for me to take an extended break, the one week or longer kind.

I take a day off every now and then, usually based on convenience and lack of time, not based on the feeling of soreness. Typically I jelq in the morning, and stretch at night in the shower. With two active kids and an involved wife who goes in many school field trips, volunteering and such, about twice a month I get in a mini shock routine, maybe lasting 2 to 3 hours of half manual stretching - half jelqs, squeeze jelqs, Uli’s, etc,…

Question for veterans who workout like me. Do you find better long-term results with scheduled breaks? IYO, do you think I would yield better/faster results with a scheduled week/month long break even though I am still getting results and still getting sore, or should I continue until I reach a plateau? Should I take breaks when I feel sore (every time) until I no longer feel soreness?

All opinions/thoughts/theories are welcome…thanks guys!

HJ,

>Should I take breaks when I feel sore (every time) until I no longer feel soreness?

I would say definitely not, unless the soreness is super high.

I am more or less like you on the routine, I just do as much PE as I can fit in, safety and personal life allowing. I rarely take full rest days.

I think regular rest days would not be beneficial for length work, as the more time you spend not PE’ing the more time the tissues have to retract and heal. Then much of your next session will be spent getting back to the position you were in before the day off. Of course this is relevant for all time off, even if you PE on an evening and the next morning some retraction and healing will have occured overnight. However, some days after I have hit it hard for some time, I find PE really difficult, and uncomfortable. Then I will take a day off, and I usually find that the next day I have a decent flaccid hang.

So I agree that dynamic length routines in the ‘listen to your body’ kind of way is best. As for girth, most people advise regular rest days, at least more than with length. I’ve never thought about that in depth having been a ‘length guy’ for my whole PE career thus far.

hobby has a good thread on extended breaks called ‘strategic deconditioning’, which is well worth a read.

Thanks SS.

Any other opinions/thoughts/theories?

Hugh,
Just curious, but what type of routines do you “usually” do to achieve such soreness on a regular basis? I’m seldom ever sore - at least to the extent that you describe it. I would theorize that such consistent soreness is probably indicative of good length gains/potential gains (esp. with the plastic deformation theory).

So, what are you doing to get this constant soreness?

- w a d

I’ve described it in a a few threads before, it’s fairly simple. My routine varies as the mood hits me. Typically, I take one day off, usually Sunday for lack of privacy.

mornings - no warmup, jelqs, squeeze jelqs, uli’s and bends for about 15-20 minutes. I incorporate the circle motion with the OK grip around the base, and it puts great pressure on the CC and the ligs where they connect. I get really full from this. On a scale of 1 to 10 of intensity, I usually start at about 3, ending with 8, sometimes 9.

evenings - warmup with hot shower manual stretching for about 20 minutes. Again, on a scale, since there is warmup, start at about 5, end with 10 minutes or so of 10 intensity. Since I can bench 315 lb’s, and have strong triceps and and strong hands, you can imagine the pressure put on my johnson.

It’s the stretching that gets me so damn sore. Literally from inside my body, all the way down the shaft to the glans. The soreness varies, sometimes it’s even sore to the touch, when I cough, I feel the soreness in the base mostly. If I press into my pubic area where my ligs connect, I am usually sore to the touch right there. I figure there is some decent tearing going on right there. Not sure if a week or two break would let it heal. That might not be a good thing?

Hahha, back before hanging (with my old routine) I got this kind of soreness too. At first, I decided I was still gonna stretch the day after and I did but it got so uncomfortable and I wasn’t even pulling 100%. So I decided to let off my unit for a good 5 days. Because thats how long it took for the soreness to go away. Good question if this is a good thing or not. BUt I was more concerned about not tearing my dick off then whether or not it would be good from a PE perspective.

Sounds intense, man. What kind of gains have you been seeing? I’m wondering if I need to work to achieve this kind of soreness. Maybe that is what’s been stiffling my length gains.

Wad, my gains are slow…they always have been. And I’ve only been back at this “full time” about a month now. I’ve never been a measure freak, because I believe I fluctuate too much to say that one measurement is my true size. I’ve had erections that looked and felt huge, and others that seemed a good half inch shorter. I just know I have made some small gains in erect size, but mostly in the flaccid state right now.

I would think that an occasional intense manual stretch would be good for hangers.
