I have a new understanding in perfecting my grip and ability to trap and move blood. It was almost like leaving cheese out and then discovering penicilin. I’ll explain:
After my very short workout and slightly discouraged, I jumped in the shower to warm down and do a few jelqs while I still had a good size erection. I put one hand on my penis hand, and the other at the base. I slightly pulled my penis straight out, keeping my right hand below the gland, and used my left hand at the base to move towards the right hand. I’ve done this a thousand times, but this time was different. By slightly pulling my penis out and using my opposite hand to jelq towards the gland I was able to create a bubble of blood between both hands. And the best part was: I didn’t have to use much if any force to do it. Just a grip that was slightly more than masturbating (thank you Kingpole, I now understand what you meant by slightly more than masturbating grip). By using this method I could make my jelqs last the recommended 3-5 second minimum with no loss of trapped blood, I could go longer if I wanted to as well. It was great! And I think this is the key to gains. The part of my penis between my hands was plumpier and I could even feel it’s extra expansion…and I only had about a 70% erection. My workout was a success!
In the past I’ve been using a lot more force and thought I was trapping and moving blood properly, but after this light jelq with both hands working as a team, I really saw how the jelq is to be performed. And it only took two months! The positive side is it was also so light and effortless that I feel I’m doing less damage, and can go consecutive days if I want to. Comparing this method to before, I feel as if I was beating the shit out of my dick, thinking it was getting blood moving. You can read a thousand posts and watch a thousand videos, but there’s a science and form that I now see in the jelq that you can’t learn until you just do it enough.
