Hanging sessions: several short or one long?

Hanging sessions: several short or one long?

I’ve recently gotten back into hanging and I want to maximize my sessions. What have you guys found to be more effective for you during your hang time: several short sets or one long one? Advice?

I think the kind of hanger you want to use will make a lot of difference. Hardly you can do long sets with clamp-style hangers.

If you are using a Bib style hanger you should not go beyond 20 minutes per set.

However, you can still string together multiple sets if you like. Just take 5 or 10 minutes off between sets.

I am still unsure if multiple sessions throughout the day is better or one super session with tons of sets. I personally lean toward multiple sessions but with the most sets taking place in my first session.
This way if the day gets crazy at least I got a good hanging session in.

I have to admit that I am guilty of letting life get in my way all the time and I had many days where I didn’t do the later sessions.

I’ve tried lots of hangers but I finally settled on the Captain’s Wench. Got the materials, made my own and it’s great! Now I just need to solidify my routine.

Do the longest sets that you comfortably can, and do as many sets you can, with the lowest effective weight.

I second this ^^^. In order of importance (an oversimplification, oh well): time per set (20 minutes with compression hangers), total cumulative time, relative level of stress (more is not better - only increase to stay ahead of tissue toughening).

Its only necessary to bring fatigue to the tendons. One long session is not good technique since fatigue is more effectively induced over multiple sessions. I have never hanged for more than a set of 3, with twenty minute intervals. Your penis will tell you when its fatigued, you will not be able to achieve an erection due to the induced trauma. You can go the destructive route ala Bib and exceed thresholds of the anatomy but to my surprise there are few if any that have followed this undertaking.

The reason you do multiple sessions is because it is the best way to weaken tendons. One long session is not good because regardless how long it is, the tendon will seek to regain normalcy. Multiple sessions with rest in-between does not allow the tendon to know where normal resides…


Please use caution in regards to anything posted by Yokamotive kiddies. He is our old troll friend Shilow come back to pay us a visit and spread more of his troll crap.

Yokamotive, your point about individual set time vs. cumulative time is inaccurate. But the truth is irrelevant here since you can only use a compression hanger for 20 minutes at a stretch due to circulation considerations, so longer sets are not really possible. And compression hangers are the better choice.

The fact of the matter is that tissue elongation is time dependent due to its viscoelastic properties and the increased gene transcription that happens in your connective tissue’s fibroblasts that happens increasingly as a stretch is held. 20 minutes at a moderate stress level is enough to achieve good viscoelastic creep and a high degree of gene transcription and, therefore, extracellular collagen matrix remodeling, but HYPOTHETICALLY a longer set would produce even better results, and they could be obtained with less weight/stress in that case.

But since all of us compression hanger users have to limit sets to 20 minutes, we must focus on cumulative time. So that makes your point a valid one, just maybe not for the reasons you expressed.

Hi guys im new to hanging tried it a couple of times and stopped do to time issues. Now im isually waking up a little earlier and decided to put in 15 min a day to hanging and 15 min of jelqing after the hanging.

Do you see me achieving any results this way, or could i be just streghthening my tendons?
Im up to 5lbs right now and plan to stay there for at least 2 more months.

Thanx you in advance for your replies. 👍

I have no idea if you would be strengthening your tendons.

I do believe that you will probably not have any gains. However, if you do have more free time in the future the time spent now even 15 minutes a day is great for getting your technique correctly for those future days.

I have no experience with this but there is a school of thought that goes low sets per day but maximum weight. There are people that have claimed to gain this way.

So instead of staying at 5 pounds arbitrarily you would get your technique down and then you would start increasing a little bit per week. The goal being reaching that point where you get fatigue/discomfort on the first set. Your mindset would more aggressive.

Again I have no personal experience with that method.

Without arguing of the validity or effectiveness of one method over the other I am imagining an x,y graph with one side having weight and the other side having time.

Here are the different methods and routines.

1. An extender which would be low weight but lots of time. Maybe 5-6 pounds of force and maybe 4-8 hours a day.
2. Regular hanging which could be 10 pounds to 30 pounds+ for 7 to 15 hours a week.
3. Hardcore hanging which would be 25 to 50+ pounds for 8 hours a month.

Depending on the individual the times and weights could vary widely. But I could see scenarios where each of the above provided gains.
Not arguing which is most effective, safer, long term growth or anything else. Just that each of the above could provide gains.

So imagining plotting those three methods on an x, y axis the problem I have is I can’t imagine hardcore time of 20 minutes a day but extender weight of 5 pounds producing any results.

Just like I couldn’t imagine extender time 4-8 hours of the day but only 1 oz weight producing meaningful results.

I think if you have limited time and you seriously want to hang you are almost forced to become more aggressive with the weight.

I am not recommending it since I have no experience. I have no idea how safe it is.

Ill give it a whitl for the next two months to see if there are any results. If there are, ill post my before and latter measurements on this thread.
Thanx BH.

Im really considering buying myself an extender to put it on after work and taking it of before going to sleep.

Tank, I agree with BH on this one. If that weight feels heavy to you then you might experience some gains at the beginning, even at 15 minutes a day, but these will quickly stop. The amount of time you are hanging for just isn’t long enough. Is there any way to find more hanging time in your schedule?

Going the hardcore route could produce results, I’ve never done it but the very high levels of stress would certainly maximize gains per unit of time spent hanging. I do, however, see many problems with this approach: your tissues will toughen quite quickly as you will probably be causing a bit of actual damage, it’s safety is highly suspect, and gains at those high stresses for those very short times will be relying almost entirely on true plastic deformation (in the engineering sense) and I don’t believe that to be something that is sustainable over an extended period if you are adding to it daily - eventually the tissue structure will become so compromised and damaged you could injure yourself.

If you feel like you could spend a significant amount of time in an extender each day, this might be a better option for you until you can find more time to spend on hanging.

And with hanging, don’t make plans such as “I will stay at this weight for two months.” You MUST give yourself the freedom to adjust stress levels as old levels of stress stop producing discomfort.

Thanx roots, ill def look into the extender.
I think hanging is not for me right now due to the lack of time to put in a solid hour a day.

Could i still hang as an aid for like on the weekends that i have a little more time and use manual stretches routine on weekdays? Im Hanging with 5 pounds right now and dont think ill do more than that for right now.

Tank, I don’t see why supplementing a manual routine with weekend hanging would not work.

And, regarding hanging, your estimate of an hour a day is on the low end of productive hanging time. That is really only enough time for a warm up and two 20 minute sets. Eventually you will probably want to commit more time than even that. I do 5 to 6 sets a day and this takes about 2.5 to 3 hours a day. I just bring this up so you have an idea of what serious hanging can really mean in terms of time commitment.
