Effects of Hanging on Length and Girth?
Bib (and others) If I understand you correctly, you theorize that hanging “stretches” various connective tissues and that these tissues vary in strength. Some tissues stretch at one weight while others take more. When a tissue is stretched it is then important to encourage it to heal in the new extended state. This being done with frequent stretching.
If this correctly states your theory it would seem that max weight hanging only need be done until that stretch is made and then lighter weight to “train” the tissue. Possibly frequent manual stretching between hanging periods. Am I describing this correctly? If I am not mistaken, in previous posts you seemed to advocate as much work as possible. Do you still feel this way?
Also, I can clearly understand how and why hanging would increase length… but… how about girth? I can’t remember your before stats… something like 4.5x3.5? and your current stats of around 9x6 (outrageous to say the least). How much (if any) do you feel the hanging helped with the girth?
Also, as somewhat of a newbie, what is a “ULI” thing? What is the process of doing “uli’s”?
