I hung hanged for the first time today.

Mr. Schlong, the wrap I use is working for me at the weight I’m using presently.

10 pounds for 10 minutes is where I’m at presently. There is no slipping and I can even swing the weight back to front and side-to-side without a hint of movement.

I even added an extra 2 1/2 pounds or the last minute to see what would happen and the clamp held.

The Redi-stretcher was where I got the idea for using the Irwin clamp and it took some trial and error to get it to hold properly, but now it works perfectly.

My wife has a stretch band that she bought years ago to rehab a shoulder injury and if my wrap starts to fail as the weight increases, I will use a piece of that.

Thanks for the advice.

a-unit,

Wasn’t trying to insult you bro, hope you didn’t take it that way. But there is a LOT to be said for proper wrapping technique.

Good for you for trying the Irwin clamp as-is. I had often wondered myself how it would work because I didn’t have the money to blow on a Redi. I wound up getting the Bin anyway which I love.


Serious starting point: Nov. 2, 2009/BPEL 5.75 x 4.75 inches.

Current BPEL 7 1/2 x 5.5 inches.

Goal: BPEL 8 x 6 inches. Hell, if I hit 8, I'm going for 9!

No, absolutely not. I appreciate the input. When I first saw the redi-stretcher I recognised it as the irwin right off as I come from general contracting, and thought I would try to see if the irwin would suffice, and it has so far.

I will try the rubber wrap technique as the weight gets higher because I know the electrical tape will fail pretty soon, but I like to find my own ways of doing things, it’s just how my mind works.

I also have rubber pads in one of my tool boxes that are used for building dance floors and are smooth on one side and corrugated on the other, which I will attach to the clamp surface to add more grip area as the weight increases.

http://www.flooradvice.com/aerobicfloors.htm If you go to this page you can request a sample which can be used to increase the grip of the clamp.

I have to say though that I’m happy with how stable my device is at 10 pounds and I intend to stay at this weight for a while and add more sets throughout the day as time permits in this house.

Why can’t you use it for more than 10 minutes? Do you get numbness?

No, it’s just that I find that 10 minutes is where my body tells me to stop right now.

I herniated a disk in my back playing soccer last week and hanging a weight from my dick aggravates it, also I don’t want to rush into hanging and do damage. I have an extremely high pain threshold and don’t want to rip my dick off.

I have jumped from 2 1/2 pounds to 12 1/2 pounds in a week and a half and so I feel that adding more time as well might be too much. What I may do is drop the weight back to 5 pounds next week and go for 15 minutes in the morning and then go up to 10 pounds in the afternoon for 10 minutes, and build time that way to the point where I’m doing 15 pounds for 15 minutes in a month, or something like.

That’s a big jump in weight… Too big from what I’ve read. You need to work up slowly. Your tissues haven’t adapted to using that kind of weight yet, so there’s no wonder you’re in pain.

Dropping back to 5lbs is good, but I think you need to start restructuring your routine. What’s normally suggested is to move up in sets FIRST while using a low weight like 5lbs (which is usually the highest starting weight recommended for beginners anyway). Every week add another set or two per day until you reach the maximum your free time allows. THEN start upping the weight by ~15% each week, until you start to reach fatigue after your first or second set. Once you get to that fatigue point, that is your MAX weight you should always start your session with, injuries and normal weight progression notwithstanding of course.

Starting at your max weight allows you to reach fatigue more quickly, and you can reduce that weight in subsequent sets (or during a set) to remain fairly comfortable. The point is to reach fatigue as quickly as possible in your session (bouncing and swinging the weights helps me do that), and then to RIDE that wondrous fatigue throughout the rest of your sets.

Find a weightlifting belt and wear it while hanging - if you want to go ahead on hanging, maybe would be wise to stop. You could think 10 lbs, or even 5 lbs, isnt’ that much stress for the back, but hanging that weigth from the penis is like putting a multiplied weigth on your back - sadly I can’t explain in English, so just trust me if you want.

Never, NEVER hang sitting. It will compress your back even more.

Another option would be relying with your upper body on a table, at 90 degrees, so the stress is relieed from your back.

What is good with extenders and pumps is that they don’t stress your back.

Flimflam, I just finished another 10 minutes with 10 pounds and felt no pain whatsoever and experienced that delightful pulling on the ligaments that you mentioned and I was able to add another 2 1/2 pounds for an additional minute at the end to further test the clamp’s ability to hold weight.

I frankly haven’t felt much on-going fatigue from these sets and while I’m aware that my ligaments have beens stretched, there is nowhere near discomfort or sharpness to the feeling.

I mentioned in a past post that I was thinking of going back to 5 pounds but I think upon further review of my situation that I’m going to plan to do 15 minutes with 10 pounds to see how fatigued the ligaments get.

I haven’t really read anything about set weight for beginners and if you know of a specific post where this is indicated, I would appreciate the link.

The problem I think I am experiencing is that I have spent so much time at PE that my ligaments may well be really conditioned to strain and may need heavier weight to let go. I have been at a plateau for over a year now and have only recently seen a 1/8 inch growth from discovering a wet jelq program that works for me.

It has been recommended that I take an extended deconditioning break to allow the built up tissue to dissipate somewhat before expecting any new gains.

I’m going to hang for another six weeks and then measure and if there has been no length gain after that time, then I may have to stop PE entirely for a while.

Starting out with low weights and slowly moving up just kind of makes sense. You’re clamping weight to your dick, a body part that isn’t meant to do such things. You don’t want to start out with so much stress that you injure yourself, do you? The answer was clear for me, but it’s your dick.

I hung for about 12 minutes this morning and there was no drama.

I was a little sore when the clamp first pulled, but the session went well, with the idea that I would try to go closer to 15 minutes.

I found that I was becoming concerned that the head was getting to dark coloured, and so I stopped.

I suppose I could have rested and re-clamped, but I will return this afternoon and maybe break up the session with a rest after 10.

I did try attaching 5 pound to start, but it didn’t even feel stretched at that weight. Maybe my ligaments are really tough from conditioning.

I felt a decent amount of stretch at 5lb, but if I had jumped straight to 10lb from there my dick would have been a mess. I like the idea of maximizing gains at lower weights for as long as possible.

Regarding your dark glans, are you squeezing blood out of the head and upper shaft before clamping down and applying the weight?

I hadn’t ever read that you should. How do you do that?

Really? That info can be found all over the place.

You don’t want excess blood pressure in the glans while hanging because it can cause issues such as the darkening you’re experiencing, burst capillaries/red spots and on and on. A lot of guys who hang don’t realize that the excess blood in the head and upper shaft is serving to “anchor” their hanger, which is normally regarded as bad technique that will only cause major issues as you increase in weight (which makes sense!).

Right now I hang with a Captain’s Wench (my Bib Starter should be here any day now!). To squeeze out the blood I’ll sit down and hold my dick in an upward position to limit blood flow to it (yay for gravity), then I’ll squeeze the head and upper shaft as I attach the wench. I squeeze again as I put the cable clamps on just to make sure there is as little blood as possible. Sometimes I do a good job, other times I don’t. When I don’t do a good job the stress on my ligaments just isn’t there. When I do a good job of squeezing out the blood it seems all the force of the weight is focused directly on my ligaments and tunica, which is where it should be! What that means is the hanger is gripping the internals of my unit, and not relying on the blood to provide an anchoring point.

Give that a shot and see if it helps you stress those ligs more easily at the lower weights.

EDIT: Keep in mind I’m assuming your glans is “hard” while hanging, indicating a lot of internal pressure from the trapped blood. IF that’s not the case and your head is dark while still being soft, you should be fine. The dark coloring - as long as it’s not black - seems to be relatively normal as long as you’re limiting your sets to no more than 20 minutes.

Thanks, I had found that my glans had become a sort of cork that seemed to help stop the clamp from sliding down as the session progressed.

I haven’t seen any of the red spots, though the glans does become quite darkened after 10 minutes or so, but recovers after a minute or so out of the clamp.

The only time I’ve ever seen the red spots was one of the first times I clamped, which was quite alarming, but never happened again.

What do you make of guys like sheLovesIt who are heading for 40 pound sessions?
