Help with wrapping
I need some help from some of you who have had success hanging with the Bib hangers. I own both the starter and the original and I am really having problems being able to have a comfortable hang.
I am not a newbie as I have been on this journey since March 22 of 2001. To date I have had modest gains. From 5.85 inches BPEL to 6.40 BPEL and from 6.25 FBPFL to 7.40 BPSL. In the first 6 months I had really good gains probably about .5 inch BPEL and
1 inch FBPSL I think I would attribute these gains to manual stretching and v stretches. In the last 8 months however my gains have really slowed down. I have only gained .15 inches both BPEL and FBPSL. I know it stems from not being able to wrap correctly using the Bib Hangers.
As for wrapping material I have tried theraband, ace bandage, t-shirt material and sweat shirt material. I have tried cloth on bottom theraband on top, theraband on bottom cloth on top. So I feel I have tried almost everything that has been recommended. I have read all of the post Bib and others have made regarding wrapping and either I am the dumbest person on the planet or something is just not clicking. As for the hanger I have tried very tight, toe in - toe out, different gap spacing with the bottom and top gap(the top portion with the teeth very close, further apart etc.) I have tried different placements of the shaft in the hanger well.
There is just not any way for me go above 12 pounds for a hanging session and have a comfortable hang using the guidelines Bib gives about the hanger positioning in regards to the glans. If I try .75 to 1 inch from the glans the hanger ends up slipping or just causing too much pressure in the head. I know the hanger has worked for others here and I know it would for me if I could just figure out how to hang comfortably. How have you guys that are hanging 20 pounds and up doing this? I really need some help here.
Presently the only way I can hang above 12 pounds and bear it is too wrap almost 1.75 to 2.25 inches from the head and then pull very hard on the loose skin under the wrap towards the base. This stress I feel seems to be more on the ligs than the burning of skin pull, but I don’t want to keep doing this is this is the wrong way. Has anyone here had success with the hanger being positioned more toward the base?
I also have a question on the stress I should feel. I experience 2 kinds of stress. This is hard to explain so bear with me. The first seems ‘thick’, like not only the ligs are being stressed but also the inner structures of the shaft near the base. The second is ‘thinner’ it almost seems like I only feel the stress in the ligaments. Does this make sense to anyone? If it does what is the stress that I should striving for. The most frustrating thing for me is that I almost never am really sore in the lig area after a day of hanging. This is even after sessions of up to 20 pounds.
Hope someone can help.
