OK guys trying hanging again!
Well I looked up my old post to see the date, and can you guys believe that it has been over a year and three months since I injured myself. In fact, some time had passed before I posted that. For all you guys that don’t know, here is my original post to get you up to speed.
Well I have been very patient. I can’t believe it has been that long. In the back of my mind I think it is possible that I will never be able to hang again. Talk about disappointing. I finally found something that was working and then I had to stop. This injury has resurfaced time and time again in PE to the point that all I could do is uli-wrap. I began doing a little manual stretching and jelqing to condition it. Things are improving and I decided (more out of curiosity than anything else) if I can resume hanging. I still have great reservations.
Well it was strange wrapping again and attaching the hanger but I did not have trouble. I am going to begin very very carefully and monitor accordingly. I just hung with 2.5 pounds sitting on the edge of a chair for 7 minutes and then lifted up my legs to the BTC for and additional 3 minutes. That is a 10-minute hang at 2.5 pounds. It felt ok but there was a little strain, and I was not going further than that anyway. I will see how I feel later. If ok then I will increase slowly and surely time and weight. It was nice to get the old feeling back again, but increased weight and time so that it fatigues is a whole other thing and in fact may not be possible again. I will let you guys know how it goes.
Wish me luck.
