Using stretcher 4 mths...results???
I’m seeking help with my routine as it stands now for 4 months using the Autoextender and PE weights combined. Starting on May 1st I decided to buy and use the A/E in the AM for 1 hr, much like a hanging session to stretch out good and long using heat all the way. Then, I put on 2lbs of pe weights and wear it for 1hr then, remove it for 1 hr. I alternate this way all day into the evening with the last session back with the A/E and either quit for the day or do 10- 20 jelking and that’s it. Using this routine I average 6- 7 hrs stretch/hang time per day.
Here’s the weird thing though. Some days jr seems to have a good hang going on, nicely fatiqued, other days it just want’s to turtle up, probably just over worked as I’ve seen this many times before. When I first started (May) I hadn’t done any PE for some time so I experienced the (newbi effect) and increased about an inch in FSL up to 7 1/4” in the first month. I’ve been at this FSL plateau for around 2 mths now and can’t seem to muster any more flaccid stretch with the A/E even combined daily with the weights. I stretch/hang 6 on/1 off since this is alll mainly static stretching.
My skin has really stretched out a lot over the last 4 mths and since it’s a limiting factor I was hoping more FSL would be coming forth by now. I think I need to change something cause I’m stuck in a rut. I would hate to keep this routine up for another 2, 4, 6 mths only to find I haven’t gained anything from it. Maybe some hanging is in order to help move things along.
I like the A/E due to the fact that you can put a fairly heavy stretch on jr, alot like hanging with more weights but maybe it’s not enough to get the job done. Another possible factor could be the ligs have gone as far as they’ll go and need to change up to higher angle stretches. I usually at around 7:00- 8:00 position with the A/E. I’d appreciate any ideas from you guys on a different move to make to get back on track to making gains.
