Measuring after a session
I recently started hanging again after a break. Today was my 4th day back. I’m fulcrum hanging - straight over the rod and also turned 90 degrees to the left and right.
Still not sure of the status of the bad vein which inspired my break, I’m starting out easy: 5 lbs for 3 15 minute sets. Today I bumped it up to 6.25 lbs.
Each day after my last set I measure FSL immediately after detaching the hanger. My normal, un-PE’d FSL is 7 5/8” now. After the 5 lb. sessions it hadn’t changed. Hmm. Even a moderate stretching/jelqing session usually increases it to almost 7 3/4”.
Adding that extra 1.25 lbs. made a world of difference. I hit 7 7/8” FSL after my last set today - a first for me. It had snapped back to the normal 7 5/8” when I checked it again about an hour later.
I was surprised to see such a different response by adding just a tad more weight, and wanted to point out that I think post-session FSL is one way to monitor the effectiveness of a session. Had I not measured, I may have thought 5 lbs. was doing some good. I’ll assume 6.25 lbs. is my minimum effective working weight for now. I have used up to 12-14 lbs. before in these fulcrum positions, but that was many months ago.
More weight should cause better plastic deformation, and hopefully more time before my penis snaps back to its “normal” length after a session.
