The last few weeks I’ve been hanging off and on. I had red spots on the top and underside of the shaft I think where the Wench is clamped on. After not hanging for a few days they seemed to go away, at least for now. I’m using a bungee cord along with the Wench and it seems like the red spots really started when I would turn my hips and do OTL stretches.
Right now the top half of the head seems to be slightly discolored with more pronounced small spots on that underside head area between the urethral meatus and the frenulum. It seems like if I even do one set the discoloration really shows for about a day or maybe a little longer.
My wrap HTW wrap with a 24in piece of Theraband. I moved the Theraband down a little and it seemed to help, but the discoloration is worse now (I did move p about 1lb of tension though).
What should I do to prevent to mitigate the discoloration? Also should I switch to a Bib Hanger?
I only felt fatigue when I first started hanging in September, and I had to take a break in October, but I’ve been hanging since and haven’t felt fatigue. I’m up to 104cm on the bungee chord with the equivalent of roughly 8.5lbs. I’ve read Monty’s posts and wanted to use angles more and go up in weight low, but I might need to go heavier once I figure this discoloration thing out.
I would appreciate any help. I really don’t want to give up. It seems like the guys that gain are consistent and put the time in. I just can’t seem to get past the initial problems.
