One must really go for heavy weights in order to gain?
Ok here is what lil12big1 has written in his Hanging 101 + Sample Routine thread:
* Month 1 — 5 pounds — 5 days per week — 45 minutes per day
* Month 2 — 7 pounds — 5 days per week — 45 minutes per day
* Month 3 — 10 pounds — 5 days per week — 60 minutes per day
* Month 4 — 12.5/15 pounds - 5/6 days per week — 60 minutes per day
Let’s say I am not able to hang 10 pounds in the 3rd month as he suggests. That is: I am stuck at 7 pounds and no matter what I do, I cannot exceed that even after 4 months (because of pain). Now does that mean I will not be gaining at all? Or do I gain but it is slow due to weight not being heavy enough?
It seems impossible for me to go above 7 pounds (even after 3 months - well it has been only one and a half month since I started, but I do know it is impossible). So is hanging waste of time if you can’t reach the suggested weights above or should I keep on even if I can’t exceed 7 pounds?
