knot from hanging?
I’ve been jelqing for over a year, stopped experiencing gains, and decided to try hanging. I began hanging 9-2-3.
Since I was doing some intensive manual stretching (which I’d gradually worked up to), I thought I could start in on 10 lb. weights early, and in the middle of last week I started doing 10 lb for 1 session a day. I use a home-made pvc hanger from the Tom Hubbard site (Many thanks for this design!). So far my hanging looks like this:
9-2 to 9-5 : 2 or 3 sessions at 5 lbs.
9-8 to 9-10 : 2 or 3 sessions at 5 lbs.
9-11 to 9-12: 2 sessions at 5 lbs, 1 session at 10 lbs.
9-15 & 9-16: 2 sessions at 5 lbs, 1 session at 10 lbs.
While hanging I’ve also been doing kegels and “reverse kegels”— DLD blasters while hanging.
Today I have a small knot on the left side, mid-shaft, which doesn’t hurt but makes me feel like I jumped into the 10 lbs. WAY too fast. I’m sticking with 5 lbs. The knot seems like its on the ligament, and not a vein. I haven’t had any circulation or erection problems. Again, the knot doesn’t hurt at all (I don’t even feel fatigue yet), but I don’t want it to get any bigger (the knot that is!).
Should I stop hanging till the knot goes away?
Has anyone else experienced this knot? Is it just like a knot on your back?
Thanks for any input! And the moral of the story is that even if you’re an advanced jelqer you’ll be a newbie hanger if just beginning.
