Gaining at Higher Angles
So Ive made a few posts here and there in regards to hanging. A quick background……Been doing PE since jan 1 and started hanging beginning of june. I think what gains I show in my signature are a combination of i itial mis-measuring and from a stint of manual stretching. After june Ive been hanging religiously working my way up to 12.5lbs two hours a day, split up into am/pm sessions (LG). I have made pretty much ZERO gains in 4 months. I understand some require more weight than others but I figured at least 1/8” considering Im still pretty new to this, but no dice.
For the record I tested prior to hanging and established about a 7:30 LOT with a med/low exit point. Could never figure out the palp test. Over time my LOT has seemed to go UP, which from what Ive seen doesnt make sense. I dont feel much pull on my ligs btc with that weight.
So I decided to just experiment and give upper angles a try. Ive been alternating ots (more like 10 oclock or so) with fulcrum over a broomstick with 7.5lbs. Its actually a bit lighter considering the resistence from the rope dragging.
Anyways, Ive made more progress in the last WEEK than the past 4 months. Seems like after a few sessions im able to stretch my bpfsl a little bit further. It confuses me as I understand tunica gains come a lot slower and lig gains come fast. Ive noticed a 3/16-3/8” increase in a week which im extatic about. Just thought Id share and see if any experienced members had any explantion as to why things are going this way so I can gain a better understanding of how my body responds.
