I have two questions, both concerning ADS.
1. Does it matter how much ADS weighs as long as it keeps the penis stretched during the day? I’m asking this because hanging is the tool that does the micro damage and ADS is the tool that keeps the penis stretched so it can heal in that state. If one can keep his penis stretched with, e.g., 1 lbs, why do some people use high weights (e.g 5 lbs or even more) as ADS? That’s almost like ADH (all day hanging).
2. If one uses ADS, are split sets still required? Or to be more precise, what is better:
A) Split sets and no ADS?
B) Split sets and ADS?
C) No split sets and ADS?
My opinion on 1 and 2:
1. I think the amount of weight used is a case by case basis type thing. I don’t have any hard and fast rules that I know about this. Maybe someone like monty, big girtha, or someone else with more experience in this area can comment. I have used a golf weight ADS after hanging with some success, but not for years like some of these guys who can probably give a lot more insight. Just like hanging though, I would start light, take it slow, monitor your circulation, increase things slowly and incrementally, etc.
I always thought just not letting yourself turtle would be enough with an ADS (if you’re already doing a hanging routine). Maybe others have different views on this though.
2. Split sets are best, but not everyone has that kind of time. I think split sets are enough, but if they don’t fit your schedule, an ADS is better than nothing. Once again, this is just my opinion.
My Answer = A
A) I believe this is ideal. (split sets, no ads)
B) This is probably overkill (split sets and ads)
C) This is my last choice between these 3x options. (no split set and ads)
I do find that my maximum weight from my final set always goes up a bit between my last morning set, and my first split set later in the eveing.
If you ask Bib, I am pretty sure he will tell you just to do split sets. However, as I said, a lot of veterans use ADS (instead of split sets). Maybe some are willing to comment, I guess we will see.
