Question about moving up in weights
I’ve been hanging since September, and started off with sets at 13 pounds. Its February now, and I’m still hanging at 13 pounds. I tried to move up to 15 for a while, but it was too strenuous on my ligs - tingling and pain sensations after 2 sets.
What does this mean? Is this a good or bad thing? I’ve noticed that many of you gradually need to move up to heavier weights over time to achieve fatigue, but even after months of regular hanging, I can’t comfortably increase.
My gains have been steady, but slow - about 1/8 inch a month at best. I’m curious why I can’t tolerate more weights by now. I know this isnt a weightlifting competition, but I’m wondering.
Also - has anyone here noticed their shaft thinning out as they increase length? I haven’t gotten ANY increase in base thickness; in fact, I’m pretty sure my base and lower shaft have gotten THINNER! Its quite obvious, but I haven’t measured it out of fear that my suspicions are true.
