Hanging Timeline

Hanging Timeline

Greetings Hangers,

This thread is in concern to the time frame that our more experienced members have observed.

When I began hanging, I started VERY light, and, as comfort allowed, I worked my way up to 5 lbs after about 2 weeks.

Now, after a month of hanging with 5 lbs for two 10 minute sets a day (day off about once a week) I can barely feel the 5 lb weight.

I have observed some gains, though they have been minimal, and stopped after about the second week of using 5 lbs.

Now, I think my penis has been conditioned to hanging enough that I can either 1) up the weight, or 2) add two more sets, ie. two sets in the morning before work, and two and night before bed.

What do you think I should do? Both maybe? (I have a feeling that the 2x light workouts per day to keep your penis in an extended / enlarged state is the key to gaining, regardless of what exercises you choose to do. Yes, it takes 24 hours for the penis to heal, but is that what we want? Or do we want it to partially heal and then be exposed to further stress? These are questions I can not answer.)

But, the real question I am here to ask is: at what weight did you begin to really get gains? Did you gain at all with 5 lbs, or only after you had worked your way up to a higher weight class?

Now, don’t get me wrong, if someone says “I experienced gains at 12 lbs” I’m not going to run off and hang 12 lbs from my dick. If there is one thing I have learned about PE over the last two years it is that slow and steady wins the race. I am just looking for accounts by some of the more experienced hangars as to how long / what weight it took to experience your first noticeable gains.

I feel like if a few of our experienced members can give us a little background as to their experience it will be a useful tool for many of us.

I have only been hanging for about 6 weeks so I don’t have much more experience than you. But I have scoured the archives and based on that reading have gone about hanging differently. Like you I started light and slow but I have been working my way up.

First thing was to increase the Time Under Load (TUL). Much of what I have read suggests a minimum of 10 hrs per week. Since I can only hang 6 days a week that means at minimum I need 100 minutes per day TUL.

Once I achieved the requisite TUL, I started increasing the weight. Bib recommends increasing weight 1-2 lbs per week. I have roughly been following that schedule, but I haven’t been increasing the weight just for the sake of hanging higher weights. Fatigue seems to be the key factor many write about. I increase the weight when I no longer feel fatigue within the first set or two. I also decrease the weight on each subsequent set having felt fatigue on the previous set.

I haven’t seen any gains yet. But I consider the first 3 weeks or so simply as experimentation and conditioning.

Regardless of my limited experience, much of my reading suggests you need more that 2 hours per week TUL. So I would say add more sets.

Length for show. Girth for "Whoa"!

NBPEL: Start: $1.50; Current: $1.75; Goal: $2

MSEG: Start: <TP Tube; Current: >TP Tube; Goal: >>PT Tube.

Interesting. Thank you for replying.

What I have done is added 2 more sets in the evening, for a total of 4 x 10 to 12 minute sets per day, average 6 days a week.

That is four hours TUL a week.

In all honesty, 10 hours TUL a week is a ridiculous amount of time if you take into account warm up, breaks, warm down, and all the other bullshit you have to do. I would need to more than double my current routine of 4x sets a day to reach that TUL.

No other type of PE requires that kind of time investment, so why should hanging? Or am I just living in denial?

Anyway, my plan is to hang at various angles in the morning (SO, Up, OTS, Left, and Right) at random, probably two three days in a row, and then only do SD hanging at night. I will let you know how it goes.

That being said, any other hangers want to share a little bit about their time line? How much you started with, how fast you added time / weight, when you began to notice your first gains, words of wisdom, etc?

I’ve been hanging for about 6 months at 5lbs (usually 10mins a day). I keep calling the lack of gains a plateau, but in honesty, I probably should have added more weight months ago. Personally, I don’t believe in adding sets. I got steady gains during my beginning of 5lb hangs with just one 10min set a day. I switched up to 6lbs a couple of weeks ago and will probably slowly try to get to 7lbs in comfort.

Then again, I’m not holding a very aggressive track record, so you may want to take the advice of guys that have had better gains hanging :)

You also have to take into account what your limits are. When I started hanging 5lbs took an obscene amount of hang time to feel any sort of fatigue. I basically started at 7 pounds, after two days of 5 pounds on the hanger. Try adding infra-red heat to the mix and you will really notice a difference. If the 5 pounds did let you experience fatigue, maybe try the light and see if it brings back that feeling for you before moving up in weight.

I do two or three 20 minutes sets per day 4-6 days per week. After adding the infra-red a few weeks ago I’m hitting the wall fatigue-wise. It really torches the unit. I always let my unit cool for 5 minutes with the hanger on before removing the stretch. Six months after starting hanging I gained a half inch. Now with the light use I can feel more pulling and occasional soreness.

I'm consistent in spurts, but gains are undeniable!

This is sound advice. If you really feel like you’re not pushing yourself, up the weight.

Go by feel. Don’t injure yourself. Give yourself time to get conditioned, but push things enough to keep the microtears coming. I’m of the philosophy that you want to prevent yourself from completely healing, so you need to do sets morning/ night, and pretty much daily. If you push yourself too much, try a different angle until you heal. I wouldn’t bother with a secondary hanging angle unless you’re going over 4 hours of strapped in time at one angle.

Don’t add more than 1-2 sets per week, or 1-2 lbs per week. Most important, be consistent.

Make sure you’re warming up & warming down, I’m a rice sock fan myself.

I haven’t hung lately, but I’ll be coming back before long here.

Thanks guys!

I would like to try the infra red light, but unfortunately, I am currently living in India and cant just go to the local department store and pick one up.

Other than that, if i have learned nothing else from my two years of PE, i have learned to ALWAYS warm up, and to be consistent.

Thank you all for your advice. I will let you all know how my routine goes.

Hi folks, I too use an infrared lamp. (Be careful, too easy to cook the internals)

Something else, question for maybe the more experienced. I’ve found when hanging (currently starting with 5lbs + a ‘BIB’ hanger) I sit on the edge of a swivel chair, hang down, & gently swing in small circles, or side to side, or back & forth.
It does seem to stress my unit more evenly & in a worrying way appears to be quite a relaxing feeling!

Anyone else tried this while hanging.

Thanks, Rob.

I don’t use a swivel chair, but I do often swing my weight back and forth like a pendulum, or even bounce up and down a bit and make the weight jerk. I hang standing.

It gives me a little more intense of a workout, and i reach fatigue quicker. Plus, like you said, it feels good.

Robollox, I do. usually I stand with a wide stance and swing the weight gently in a circle. I concur on the relaxing feeling (I always thought it was weird it felt that way too).

WhiskeyFish, I’ve always been real scared to bounce my weights. Kinda like bouncing when you’re trying to touch your toes, not good. Not to mention the momentum of the weights. That can’t be a good idea (then again, i could be wrong).

I appreciate your concern.

It is not big bounces, just small jerks. My personal assessment is that, in moderation, it is harmless. I would never willingly do something that I viewed as dangerous.

Anyway, though you have all been very helpful, I have yet to get a response that adequately answers my original question:

Hangers who have made gains (the more significant the better) how long were you hanging before you began to notice gains?
At what weight did you begin to notice gains?
Was hanging your first form of PE?
If not, did you gain from your prior PE?
