The Turtle Effect.
I like many others suffer from the Turtle Effect.
MY dick just wants to hide out and stay warm. I have been thinking about this as i read quite a few old posts and theories. This is what i have come up with.
Over the past week, i have been hanging various styles and weights to see how my unit would react. Trial and error plus different routines has led me to believe that my Turtle Effect was being caused by what i would call a “contracted” state.
Whenever i would focus on my flaccid hang, i would notice that my unit was in “retraction” via my muscle control. I would always be contracting my muscles in a kegel type effect thus limiting the amount of flaccid dick to hang. always being “tight” was leading to my unit hiding inside. Every single time i did this, checked for muscle tightness, i was always pulling in.
So i started focusing on relaxation. After reading this thread regarding elasticity and stress relaxation i have found that my flaccid hang is greatly improved via the relaxation factor.
People have been getting gains and still seeing Turtle Effect, which led me to theorize that the Effect is indeed caused by constant muscle contraction. Being in this “retracted” state both physically and mentally, leads to smaller hang. I have also been incorporating this stress relaxation method to my hanging sessions and my Uli sessions and i believe it to be one of the most effective ways to enhance gains.
I want to hear from other “turtle” men and i would like to see if you experience the same thing. Are you in a retracted state via muscle control? Try to relax and see what happens. Maybe i am onto something?
