Thanks for the feedback.
My average with the extender has been 5 hours a day. The weekends tend to see a little less time than during the week. In the two months I have been wearing the extender I haven’t added any bars. I work to full extension within an hour of wearing it. My plan wasn’t to add any bars until I felt minimum tension in the current setup at max extension; however, that might not be the best approach? I can say that I was in no rush to add any bars. As far as devises I’m currently at two, the pump and the extender. Over the past three weeks I have been too aggressive with the pump, resulting this week in a slight eq drop. Other than this week having a little more fatigue than prior weeks, all has felt pretty good.
Sorry, for some reason I was under the impression you had a full artillery at your disposal.
As far as a pump is concerned, I have never tried one, so I really don’t know how it might work synergistically or otherwise with an extender, so I’ll leave that to TG (or anyone else who’s more knowledgable) to discuss.
As far as bars, I can only speak from my experience but I’ll share that I’ve been able to add 3/4” to 1 inch in rod length within a month of starting back up with the extender. However, I tend not to wait until I reach max tension but instead add a 1/4” rod when I’m able to extend comfortably at quarter inch compression beyond my current rod setup.
There's principalities in the whole thing.
