I have tried different routines with different lengths and amounts of force. I have found, that most routines offered in here are too harsh for me. Following the PI’s as a guide line I have found, that 3 day on 1 off
suits best for me with the amount of force I use right now.
I have seriously over done my routine in the past, but I even gained with it. Anyway, I think, that this overloading overloaded resulted, that when I was forced to leave PE for about 2 weeks, I lost these gains.
The gains I had made before this overloading routine stayed and actually there was about a half year in the past when I did almost nothing and my gains stayed then.
The two main points in this thread are, that the routines usually recommended are too hard and following more suitable routine (not too harsh), the gains stay more likely.
People in here (including me) tend to jump as soon as they can to routines, that are made from guys who have had harsh routine even years. Even not being newbie anymore, I think this can be hardly recommended.
Too hard routine is bad for gains and totally wasted time. Today I do 1/3 of the routine I did in the past and yet seeing better gains and erections. Time saving is almost an hour.
My routine is more simple also, just stretching and jelqing. No need to anything else right now.
The PI’s seem to be very good indicators for suitable routine and I think, that everyone should check, that their routine is correct.
