Great post Hank. That’s exactly the reason I split this thread in the beginning. Ever since I first started reading Bib-related threads here, everyone has been caught up on him hanging 45 lbs, but didn’t read enough to realize it was only at the very end of his hanging career, and not the weight at which he gained. I believed it too for the longest time until one day I picked through his history thread with a fine-toothed comb and found that post where he states 17-20 lbs as the weight that really did it for him. Fortunately - in hindsight anyways - I was never able to hang more than 20 lbs. I always envisioned working myself up to higher weights because of the belief in Bigger’s method, but everytime I tried to hang more weight, my dick wasn’t having any of it.
I’m glad to hear that during your “hanging holiday” (I like that :) ) you were able to restore from the negative affects that heavy hanging caused. Gains at the same time must have been a very pleasant surprise.
Thanks for the reply Grower, 1.125” at 10-12 pounds is great, and goes to further prove the theory. Congrats! What kind of hanger do you use? Do you get the same head pressure issues at 12 pounds that you get at 17?
