45min to an hr hangtime, too much
I’ve been hanging for about 2 weeks now. I’m comfortable with 10 pounds now, and I plan to stay at this weight for a month or so. I hang SD. I try to get at least an hr of hanging every day with 10lbs. But usually I get more, and I throw in some sets with lower weights, sometimes decreasing weight, and increasing weight through out the exercise. I hang SD, just because it’s easiest.
I no longer turtle, though I did at first. Yet I still feel as though I’m getting a good stretch. What concerns me is that I keep reading that hanging should be done for no longer than 20 minutes at a time. That was something a had not known when I started. I have been hanging for at least 30 minutes, but usually an hour straight. Not longer than an hour, however, one hour is usually my goal with each set. I periodically check the temperature of my glans while hanging, making certain that it is still warm. Usually it is, and it does not begin to get cold until my set is nearly over.
I have used a stretcher/traction device in the past, and the rule of thumb was to insure circulation was not impeded for too long. When the glans got cold, stop, and allow the blood flow to continue, then reattach. This is the mentality I brought to hanging.
In addition, it would seem that the longer the set, the better the stretch, just as is the heavier the weight, the stronger the stretch. However, this is just intuition, and reality my in fact run counter.
Whatever the case, I’d really like to know. Is an hour straight of hanging too much, and if so, why? Especially if the glans does does not go cold, and circulation is encouraged afterwards. I masturbated for the first time since starting yesterday, and my erection, at least to me, appeared much firmer, fuller, and even longer. I do not discount the possibly of the the placebo effect, but I definitely noticed a difference.
Thanks for your input,
