Drop in weight, OR use same weight? (search result [link] inside too)

Drop in weight, OR use same weight? (search result [link] inside too)

Hi all, I have a question that I’m pretty sure has been asked before (could’ve sworn I’ve read umpteen threads mentioning it, but can’t seem to find any of them now..): When I hang, should I start my hanging session with a higher weight (“max weight”?) until I feel a little sting and then drop down in weight, OR should I just hang with the same weight throughout the whole hanging session?

This was the only search result I found, though it didn’t really answer much about my question

I’ll explain a little bit about my current hanging situation.
- First, I’m just starting my 2nd month of hanging.
- My first month I did 3x 15 minute sets of hanging straight down (standing) @ 2.5 lb’s…. I don’t think I felt sh*t after about the first week. The only thing I think I felt was [I believe to be at least] the skin stretch, and as I said, that was only for about the first week.
- Just starting my second month this week, I’m now hanging 3x 15 minute sets @ 2.5 lb’s again, only now I’m hanging BTC. Let me take the time to say that woah sh*t is there a difference. I’m not sure whether what I’m feeling is new skin stretch (since I’ve read BTC actually stretches more skin than hanging straight down [standing]), or the actual ligs being stretched. At the end of each set when I sort of lightly clamp the unit towards the base and lightly pull out, the unit does have a little burn to it… not sure if this little burn is the skin or the ligs being a little fatigued/sore?
- The reason why I didn’t ‘up’ my weight this week (beginning of my 2nd month) is because I’ve read so many times how BTC is much more intense and focuses more on the ligs than hanging straight down [standing]. It seems that from what I’ve read, your BTC weight could actually probably be considered double the actual #.. just because of how much more intense and effective it is than any of the other [ligament stretching] angles.
- Last month I gained zero EL / EG (I’m only focusing on EL right now though). I might have gained 1/16, but I’m not sure about that.. I only marked it down because I did get that measurement once (I always re-measure a few times to be sure) and when I got that measurement it did feel like the “real” measurement.
- I started @ 2.5 lb’s because I read in a thread somewhere where somebody suggested actually starting at 2.5 instead of the normal 5 so that, basically, you would then not only squeeze everything out of your newbie hanging gains, but you were also stretching your skin at a more minor weight (you weren’t holding back newbie gains just because of the required skin stretch.. a rather “minor detail” in terms of a +EL measurement gain.). In other words you got your skin stretch out of the way by using a more minor weight, which would mean that if you then increased from 2.5 (starting) to 5 lb’s (month 2.. after skin stretch), you’re essentially REALLY hanging with 5 lb’s and you’re essentially LEGITIMATELY hitting your ligs, not your ligs + skin (which could also confuse a person just starting hanging between skin stretch and lig fatigue/soreness).
- I have a lot of time to hang right now, but am only going with the 3x 15 minute sets because that’s what the Hanging 101 Routine says. Anything to say of this?

The reason why I’m wondering my question is because it seems like since the goal is to fatigue the ligs, you would go with a higher weight first, THEN drop down once you feel a little sting, since at that point your ligs would have just hit fatigue(?). My question about that though is if it’ll make your ligs tougher quicker (detrimental to long term gains) than if I were to just go with the same weight throughout each session. Also, it seems like most of the threads I read mention the person(s) using their “max weight” in order to reach fatigue first, THEN they drop down in weight after they’ve hit fatigue. I have no idea what “fatigue” feels like honestly, though I’m sure eventually I probably will (finally :p ). In the Hanging 101 Routine, it mentions going up +2 lb’s after month 1, but it doesn’t mention whether in both months you’re hanging straight down [standing], BTC, or what? Since BTC seems to be regarded as the prime lig stretch angle (and is much more intense/focused than any other), I figured the routine didn’t take into consideration different angles’ poundage. It also doesn’t mention anything about a max weight or anything. One might assume that according to that, your month 1 max weight should be 5 lb’s; while another might assume that the weight you should always use for month 1 is 5 lb’s.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated (and I’m sure by more than just myself).
So what do you think?

No dedication + No self-discipline = No Gains. This goes for working out as well. It's elementary math kids.

Starting Date: 1-17-05 - EL: 6 in. EG: 5.125 in. ... or 5 2/16 in. ..FL: 4.5 in. ... or 4 8/16 in. FG: 4.5 in. ... or 4 8/16 in.

14th Check-In Date (much 'rest time' so far): 10-01-06 - EL: 7 1/16 in. EG: 5 9/16 in. ................ FL: 5.00 in. ... or 5 in. FG: 4.75 in. ... or 4 12/16 in....1st Goal: EL: 7 in. EG: 5.75 in ... or 5 12/16 in.

Have you read through all the most important hanging threads linked and stickied at the top of the hangers forum? Lot’s of discussion about this.

Can’t say I know of any recent developments, but I always started with my max and worked down in weight only when the fatigue stopped me from hanging that weight again. It’s time to drop weight when it’s uncomfotable to continue, if you’re sat there maybe not actually in pain, but shifting about and sweating, then drop it. If you can do other stuff while hanging with no discomfort, then there’s no need to reduce weight. Of course stop immmediately if there is any actual pain!

And you are right again that this will make the tissues tougher over time, your max will increase as you progress through your efforts. But if you kept the weight the same then you’d eventually adapt to that and the benefits would curve off.

You have to increase weight slowly because the ligs might have adapted to a particular weight you use and be ready for an increase, but softer areas like the skin and head might not, and will be injury prone at higher weights. So use your own judgement with weight increases, but err on the side of caution and always be aware of what you feel and stop at the first feeling or intuition that something is wrong. The more you hang the better feel you get for what’s good and bad.

Lig soreness and skin soreness are quite different, and you’ll be able to tell. Skin is more ‘sharp pain’, and lig is more ‘dull ache’.


Could some enlightened individual please verify a few things I’ve been thinking about concerning hanging weight.

If a specific weight, say 5lbs, stretches the penis over time, wouldn’t that same weight of 5 lbs continue to keep stretching the penis by the same amount over further time (and then the penis repairing and becoming permanently longer), as the penis does not lose elasticity as it gets longer or more conditioned to weights (correct me if I’m wrong). However, most people work to increase their weight as the idea of more weight equals more extension according to Hooke’s law. However if the penis is healing and becoming permanently longer then next time you hang you are stretching from a new original length therefore why would more weight be needed for the same percentage extension?

BB , I think you are close to hitting the nail on the head .

The same thing happens in weight training , humans , being the silly monkeys that we are , feel more is better , so we add weight every week , or whatever , and soon reach our maximum , and are placing enough stress on our bodies to cause injury.

The fact of the matter is , if you can get results with lighter weights , stay with them until the gains stop , and only then increase weight , and do so incrementally , not in large jumps .

This way , you have a lot more time involved before reaching that max set point .

Keeping an accurate journal really helps a lot , in PE or in weight training .

Then you can be aware of changes in your routine , and how they affect you .

So would an extra set be better then, instead of more weight.
Like pumping, you don’t increase pressure, you increase time.
I’m hanging 5#, have been for a month.
I usually do 2 sets of 15 minutes.
I want to increase (since there isnt shit happening)
So instead of adding a 2 1/2# plate to my stretcher, should I just
Add an extra set or 2.
Or should I try 10# for 15 minutes (for 1st set only) to fatigue.
Then drop to 5# for the rest of the sets.
This shit gets confusing after a while trying to find what works.

My routine:
Hot bath for warm-up
Hang 5# for 15 min.
Manual stretches
Pump for 20 min.
Repeat set.
Then switch hanging for clamping for 2 more sets.

Not a fucking thing!
But I do get good morning wood, so atleast I’m not overdoing it.
I thought about throwing in some jelqs, but I have no idea where
It would be best, beginning,between sets,or end.

So in a routine like that, would extra hanging sets be better.
And sorry to hijack the thread, but you asked what I was gonna. :)
