No gains after 6 months
I would say i’ve been hanging for about a year but really the first 6 months were on and off periods where I was learning about hanging and not doing things regularly.
Before starting hanging I had already recieved all the gains I could possibly get from jelqing. Anyway for the past 5-6 months I’ve been hanging fairly religiously and yet it seems I’ve made little progress if any.
With my homemade bib hanger I have been putting in on average about an hour in a day for 5 days in the week. My break days vary. Sometimes it’s 3 days on and then a break sometimes it’s 2 days on. I’m uncut so due to the pain my times of hanging also change sometimes I do sets of 20 minutes sometimes I do sets of 15 or 10 minutes.
After hanging I will if I have time keep myself stretched out with some light weights for about an hour. Usually I will heat up for about 5-10 minutes before a hang and also sometimes heat on the after stretch. I’ve also experimented with ice on a cool down while it’s stretched out.
I’ve tried all day hanging through various methods but so far have found it uncomfortable so haven’t really persisted with it.
The weights I use will vary but usually I hang until I feel a stretch on the ligs. For the first 3 months or so I was hitting my right side and hanging at an angle. After 3 months I realized I wasn’t gaining but I could still feel the stretch in the ligs on my right side. I decided that perhaps I just needed to hit another angle and let the right side heal. So I’ve been hitting the centre when I’m in a sitting position. Here i’ve not felt the lig pull so much but still i’ve carried on for the last 2 months.
My maximum weight, that I will rarely use is about 7.5kg but usually a hanging session will be at about 3.5 - 5.5. I guess 4.5 is about average. Really the weight depends on 2 things. a) Can I feel the pull in the ligs and b) is it painfull in on my penis. These 2 factors will determine if I go down in weight or not. For this week I’ve been hanging very lightly just because the head of my penis is hurting, but I have thought it is still better to hang light at 2kg-3kg than hang nothing at all even if it means I don’t feel a good stretch in the ligs.
So what am I doing wrong? 6 months of work with neglegible gains (if any) really isn’t economical. I hope from reading this post it’s obvious to the everyone what I’m doing wrong.
