Third month results!
Well,Im pretty impressed with this pe business. I really never believed this was possible but the truth is in the pudding-or ruler in this case. I began this trek Aug.1, Ive spent hours accumulating knowledge and drew upon my knowledge from bodybuilding to help me get started.
I started with the following ideas/goals.
I would MASTER and use basic routine until I no longer had gains for two months, I would then start hanging.
for additional size. Since I started I ve learned an awful lot about my body and how it reacts to variations of technique, training schedules and deconditioning breaks.
Despite the great temptation to start hanging since I bought my bib hanger, ive managed to refrain from using it. gains have been consitant and to me at least amazing.
Starting bpel Aug 2
Perhaps not the fastest gains on the site, but Im really very pleased with the consistency. I believe I owe this to several factors.
1.Mastery of basic techniques. I use only manual stretching and wet jelqing. Ive used several variations and found what works best for me, I initially was using a grip that placed too much pressure on the dorsal nerve, this was stopped after about three weeks. I also believe, based on what Ive read here that manual stretching is underated. I am now starting to stretch twice daily when I have time. I stretch in all directions,but try to find the stretch that offers the most resistance and pull into that, I believe this stretches out some limiting areas, though it should be said this area changes on an almost daily basis.
2. Limiting jelqing time. i do not jelq for more than 15-20 mins. per session. For me it seems like overkill and
I experienced my only injury (broken blood vessel)when not paying attention to my rule.
3. Limiting training days per week. I listen to my body and can tell when its time to lay off. I believe too much too often will cause the endocrine system to shut down the capilaries to protect the organ. Ive found that 2/3 days on and 1/2 off work best for me -this refers to jelqing,I stretch every day I can.
4. Deconditioning breaks. In my three months ive taken on ten day and one seven day break. When I come back from these breaks, my first sessions are outstanding, unbelievable really. I plan to incorporate a one week per month forced deconditioning break,I dont want to, but I believe this is a key to growth.
Im so thankful to have found this site and the outstanding research material available.
My first goal is 7” via manual techniques,then whan these gains stop, using the hanger and other advanced techniques for another inch atking me to 8” Do any vets believe another inch would be possible through hanging? my research hasnt delved that far into the hanging side of things.
