Routine Assistance & General Hanging Questions
First, let me say that I’ve just finished my 6th week of hanging (with a Bib). Just logged my 50th hour.
My first month was 3 lbs. for (2) 30-minute sets BTC everyday.
Now in my second month, it’s 5 lbs. for (3) 30-minute sets BTC everyday.
I’ve read about other guys who’ve apparently gained SOMETHING in this amount of time.
I, however, have not. Not yet, anyway.
I’ve done some calculations based on some things I’ve read, and it seems that if I keep going at my current rate, I should get 0.39” around month 5 or 6, and hopefully a little over a full inch in month 12.
Considering the early success of alot of members on this board, I’d REALLY like to expedite my gains, if possible, and I need some help for that.
Granted, I don’t have a problem with continuing my routine - it’s working well so far…no gains yet, but I’ve been able to stick with it - however, I don’t want to get to month 8 or 18 and still be the same size I am now.
I don’t want to waste my time. I get discouraged realizing that that is a very real possibility, yet I want to finally give PE a REAL try.
Devote alot of time to it to see if it can work for me - I believe it can, but I’d like to see some erect results when I look down.
My initial plan was to basically follow Hanging 101 and start month 1 @ 3 lbs for an hour a day, and move up from there until I’m eventually hanging 12+ lbs. for 3-4 hours a day. I have the time now to commit to that, but like I said, I don’t want to find out that all of my work has been futile.
So, back to the subject.
I guess I have 2 questions for right now:
1. Are there any improvements I should make on my routine that can speed up my results? In other words, what can I do to get a greater length gain by month 6 instead of just 0.39”, if I could even get that?
I forgot to mention that my primary goal here is erect length - I’m not interested in adding to my girth at the moment. Just want length.
After 6 weeks of hanging, my flaccid length has definitely “improved”, and while hanging (and even while resting/sleeping) I’ve felt that *zing* that Bib has mentioned…the *zing* that feels like hairs being plucked out of your shaft. I’ve had that feeling a few times, so I hope I’m on the right path to getting some gains.
And the second question:
2. Is it correct that someone, when starting out, SHOULD follow Hanging 101 for a number of months UNTIL they find their max weight, and only THEN go above that by a few pounds until fatigue is reached - then drop down to their max weight and begin their sets while hanging in that fatigued state until the end of their session?
If someone has a low LOT, (mine for example is somewhere between 6:00 & 7:00), but is reaching fatigue while hanging BTC, should they change their hanging angle?
What’s more important for gains? Fatigue or the angle?
The majority of Bib’s posts I’ve read indicates that fatigue is more important for gains.
What about weight vs. time?
I’m getting fatigued at BTC, and I’m feeling those *zings* that Bib has talked about - so I’m not sure if I should stick with my routine until xxx amount of hours and see if I’m just a slow gainer (or a non-gainer), or switch my routine around and negate the 50 hours of BTC hanging I’ve (literally) got under my belt.
