Sorry about the sidetrack…. again, how best to put the essence of this excellent thread into practice?
I suppose we can’t do much more than theorize at this point, but if I may: I would implement: 1 - Adequate rest 2 - Progressive Overload
The above two are key principles when exercising muscles, and it is now more apparent than ever that these same principles apply to PE too. More specifically, IPR. Do a search on IPR, and you will find a lot of recent threads circulating… To be more precise, IPR incorporates 1 day on, 2 days off, which is strikingly similar to the general rule: “it takes 72 hours for muscle to heal” approach…. I don’t know if there is a correlation between the IPR and smooth muscle theory, but I think there might be. But eh, at this point, who knows. All’s we can do is test, test, and test some more. Hope this helps.

A lot of theorising going on here. Now, does anybody propose any experiments involving volunteers who are new to PE to test hypothesises?
For our demands most moderate are,
We only want the earth.
That’s a good news.Well done,Remek.
But is there is a limit for *pumping* smooth muscle?
I know this is very old, but in the last page was mentioned something about fish oil helping, just wondering if thats true, i don’t know how many people eat fish. Also the deconditioning breaks that is recommended after hitting that wall, what about a change in routine?
Ok so exactly how should I work my routine?
Clamp first to stretch the tunica and then jelq to help fill in the extra volume?
Is anyone going to answer my question?
Usually it’s the other way round.. Jelq first to make room, then clamp to keep additional internal room filled with blood to somewhat “cement”.
