10 weeks hanging. No Gains.
I need some help. I haven’t had any gains in about 4 months.
I followed the newbie routine from April until about August with good results (+5/8”x+1/4”). Most of those gains were achieved in the second month, after which the gains were minimal.
Starting around the middle of August I realized my newbie gains had dried up and decided to start hanging. I tried some homemade hangers and eventually settled on a bib starter.
I have been hanging consistently for the past 10 weeks; with an additional 3 weeks of prior conditioning. Although this isn’t a huge amount of time I was hoping to see some signs of progress by now, but have gained nothing either erect, flaccid, or flaccid stretched.
Here is the routine (that seems quite standard) I am following:
-Rice sock warm up before and between each set.
-Minimum 2 hours of strapped in hang time.
-6 days/week. If time permits 7 days/week
-15 Minute sets with 7 minute breaks.
-Reach a fatigued feeling at max weight and reduce weight on further sets as needed.
-Increase weight 1-2 lbs per week as needed to get a fatigued feeling within the first 1-2 sets.
-Current Max weight is 15 lbs.
For the last 3 weeks I have reached 1440 lb*hrs if PPM theory holds any credence.
I’m not ready to give up, but nor do I want to do this for many more months in vain. I plan on continuing for another 4-6 weeks on the current routine just to give this a fair chance of working, although I am certainly willing to alter things now, since what I am currently doing doesn’t seem to be working. Also I cannot add anymore hang time but usually get 14+ hrs/wk regardless.
Some possibilities I have considered are:
-Deconditioning break and then return to stretch/jelq combo.
-Add jelqing after sessions.
-Change hanging angle
-Add an ADS
-Forget length for now and attempt girth.
Suggestions are appreciated.
Length for show. Girth for "Whoa"!
