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!
