Ok, this makes more sense to me now. Maybe that is why I felt as if I have been hitting a wall, because I didn’t show any gains from measuring right after a session for a very long time now. I will measure on Monday. Will light manual stretches, as well as sitting on my dick while driving, during this 4 day rest peroiod head any signs of gains? I am not feeling any signs of fatigue from this work. I just feel as if I need to do some sort of light PE to keep from going stale.
I measure a lot, BUT I only record once a month. I may check myself out but I don’t find a lot of difference on a day to day basis. On a monthly basis though, that’s where you’ll see the gains. If not then you know it’s time to change something.
If you’ve not missed days in your routine then what is probably happening is your health is improving, meaning that your healing very very quickly. What you can do with that is take an aspirin a day or a nsaid. Either will slow your healing processes and allow for joint or cartilage stretching. I’ve found that NoXs work against gains because they increase healing speed and generate hormone production.
One other thing you might look at is over stress. That will cause a rebellion and shrinking of the ligs to protect themselves. Sometimes the only way to combat that condition is a decon of 2 to 3 months but that usually isn’t necessary. What you can do is stay with your routine. Slack off a set or two per day and keep your ADS all day. The ADS is the most important part as it will generate a relaxation of the ligs and a restoration of length. The one thing you don’t want to do is fight tissue rebellion. It will give but give it a few days to do so. If the relaxation doesn’t come then you only have a decon to fall back on but even during a decon you need to jelq and stretch. Before any decon you want to solidify your condition before you allow the bodies natural healing processes to take over that means stopping all hanging and continue with your ADS for at least a week before dropping it.
