What stretchign routines did you follow before becoming a hanger BH?
I personally think long stretches like 5 min hold are better than switchign every 30s. I am now stretchign 1h every day througout all day. I feel some fatigue at the beginnign, specially if I dont heat up. But as i keep on holding, my dick gets used to it and doesnt matter how hard and how long I pull. I dont feel any discomfort. I am afraid… will that mean that i will never ever reach fatigue if I ever give hanging a chance?
I did rotary stretches. 30 second stretches (and other time limits) in every direction. I did prolonged stretches for as long as I could. There where months that I was in the shower for more than 30 minutes every day just doing stretches trying to get hot water on my junk. For the most part I was very inconsistent. I would follow a routine for a few months and quit when I didn’t see results.
The closest thing for me that was possibly going to be effective was mem’s routine. It is a stretch over a fulcrum basically. I was even doing it incorrectly at first and still getting a great stretch.
However, a component of that routine gave me my first PE scare. More of a girth component but it was scary enough that I stopped.
The only way you will know if you will reach fatigue from hanging is when you start hanging. Right now I wouldn’t even give it a second thought. I would just try to be consistent with whatever routine you are following. Give it a fair shot and if you can increase reps or holds if you aren’t making gains then do so. I just think it does you no good worrying about something you can’t control. Especially when you are worrying about something you have no feel for.
I am pretty sure if you get to the point where you are hanging 40+ pounds for 10 hours plus a week you will feel fatigue. That is an extreme example and you probably won’t even get close to that. Understand that there have been times that I was hanging 15 pounds for 4 sets of 20 minutes before I finally felt fatigue. Are you holding your penis with 15 pounds of force for 80 minutes or 4 20 minute sets? I know that even when I did long stretching sets I had a very difficult time holding for long durations and maintaining the same level of force. Plus my hands would cramp up.
I think there are some unfortunate people that require higher weights to get results and they quit before they get to those weights. However, I also don’t know how truthful they are being to themselves about time being put in. I have a log going back to December and I thought I was putting in more time than I was. I was basically lying to myself. I am positive there are people that get frustrated and claim they did more than they actually did. I think they truly believe that they are doing more than they actually are.
This is seen in people that maintain a food log of everything that they eat. They become very aware of all the extra calories that they are putting in their mouth. Without their log they are questioning why they aren’t seeing results since they have been so good.
I think people need to log what they are doing and then be very consistent about doing their routine. Then adapt their routine as needed.
