I absolutely love the previous post.
For the record, yes - I have used slow progression to gain. I still, after over half a year hanging, have not gone over 12.5lbs except to experiment and flirt with stress ideas. And even with this as a max weight I still spend most of my time under 10lbs due to fatigue.
I know the idea is largely Bib’s, but not until BBS put an exclamation point on the “no pain/mild tug” thought did I begin to view it as a commandment.
I do not suffer injuries, and I gain. It just takes time.
Embrace the fact that time is more relevant to the hanging process than anything else and you will get the easiest gains PE has to offer.
I think Bib’s gains in total took three years to accomplish. Maybe two of that spent hanging for length?
Using that pace as a rough guide and with slightly more than 1 1/4” length gains of my own, I consider myself right on track. Or better put: The pace of my gains are good enough for me to keep at this. Happily.
As always- great stuff BBS. Get that theory ironed out.
