Ok guys. I have been doing some serious reading tonight and
I hope some can help me. I figured by now I would have seen
*SOME* gains, but besides a little thickening at the base, nothing.
I wrap with a 2 inch strip of ACE bandage(regular). The self adhesive
type was killing me. I have wrapped with the theraband but it just seems
like it throws all my settings off and I can’t find any comfortable settings at all.
Anyway, I start the wrap about a half inch below the head and wrap it tight
enough that I can still piss. I then attach the hanger as far up the base as
possible. I use a heat pad all through my sessions before/after/during.
I have a pretty high LOT so I hang SD and BTC.
I know one thing I am doing wrong. In fact, I am sure this maybe one of
my main problems. I am hanging lighter weight first, then building up
toward heavier weights. I normally start at 10, then work my way up to 20.
If I do it the opposite way, I can NEVER do the 20 for any REAL length of time.
Also, the head does get a little cool and purple-ish but always returns to normal
pretty fast during my breaks. I use the heat bad during breaks also.
Right now, I am going about 5 hrs a week. I have read that you need to go 10
but my new position prevents that on most days. Can gains be made at 5 hrs/week?
I also have toyed with staying wrapped well after my work outs but that would seem
to only help flaccid since I am going for lig hanging right now. I have also used the
golf weights, but as a martial arts instructor, they are kinda tough to wear full time.
Any thoughts or follow up questions?
Also of note, I have logged about 40 hours since starting.
Thanks in advance
Also…..do we have any of the “mentors” in this forum. I would love to get into
that program so I could call someone and talk directly to someone with much more
experience/knowledge then me….
BTW, don’t I get a bonus 1/2 inch for my 50th post???
Keep working, keep learning
