Theory on girth vs length
Ok, I’ve noticed if I make quick girth gains, I seem to loose length.
Or in the morning, when I’m partially hard, I will be thicker than when fully hard.
So…if volumn remains constant, that is, if you only gain girth… then LENGTH MUST DECREASE!
[ Volumn= pi(3.14) X radius(squared)X height ]
So, for guys like Big Girtha, who have gained much girth, but no length….I say that they have gained a lot of length, it just gets absorbed in the increased total volumn.
Here’s an example; if a guy with a girth of 5.5 inches and 7 in length increases his girth to 6 inches, if he doesn’t do anything to increase his length too, his length will go down to 5.9 inches!
Thats a loss of 1.1 inch!
I think this is where the thought that you must do length work first comes from. Those that are doing girth work would have to be making INSANE length gains for the total volumn to go up enough for both girth and length to increase at the same time!
So for those of you that are making girth gains, but length stays the same, remember if you are not LOSING length…it means you ARE actually making great length gains!
This may answer the mysterious phenomenom some of us have notice of sudden length loss. Now I see it can either be OVERTRAINING (contraction) or GIRTH GAINS!
So measure girth before you change your routine, it could very well be GOOD NEWS not OVERTRAINING!
