Straight Down

Straight Down

Has anyone in here been able to get decent gains just from hanging straight down? The reason I ask is that this seems to be the only position in which I can keep constant tension on the ligs w/out feeling that stinging, skin stretch feeling. I feel this mostly when I elevate my feet and let it dangle between my legs. I have not tried OTS or anything like that but I’m open for opinions.

I think this has been covered endlessly. Hanging straight down and/or back towards the anus targets the suspensory ligaments and has been shown to give the largest quick gains but mostly from ligament stretching and not totally as much from tunica stretching.

If you want to target your ligs, you should do BTC. I used to have the skin stretching problem when doing BTC, but not any more. I just start with SD with some skin lotion on the base of my penis, and after 2 sets I switch to BTC. The initial 2 sets, with the lotion, help in stretching the skin a bit so it can handle the BTC hanging with comfort.

Skin stretch is fine. Ride it out and keep hanging like you’re doing until the skin is stretched and there’s no more skin discomfort. You won’t have a bigger dick without bigger skin.

But, the thing with the skin stretch is after my 2nd session, it created a “rough spot” on my dick and kinda looked as though it has been chaffed. After 2 more sessions, it pretty much has gone down and now I hang but ensure that there is no pain. That was the problem: I would continue although it truly did hurt. I’ve heart that hurt = bad so I stopped.

I sort of enjoyed the skin burn in my hanging days :)

The rough spot that I had was right in the middle of the shaft and no where else. It seems that the area in which my wrap is, is where this occured.

Like lostrocco said: Ride it out. If you ride the skin pain for five minutes it goes away. If you get a lot of pain hanging in different positions, then your not clamping your wench tight enough. If you wrap, and clamp it right, you should only feel pain from your skin by the ligs stretching out, and possibly the ligs themselves, not the clamped area.

I’ve become so good with my wrap that my glans barely get cold hanging anymore. I’ve been eeking out a lot of 30+ minute sets with no cold glans, or eq issues. I find with the wench I can clamp down as hard as my hands will squeeze and my unit does not get pinched at all.

You mentioned in another thread I answered to that you want to up your poundages by five in the next while. You really need to fine tune everything before you try to power-lift man.

When your wrapping you have to be meticulous about it. Its very simple but you have to make sure it isn’t wrapped super tight because of circulation issues, or too loose either. If its too loose the wrap will bunch up inside your hanging device and pinch your skin, then tear the shit out of it when you let the weights hang.

Well, the only time I had the problem that I mentioned to you is when I have attempted to go BTS. With me hanging straight down, no problem at all. I have read in other threads that BTC or straight down have yielded the best results but just like anything else, that will be left for argument. The reason I’m looking to “up the weight” is because the 15lbs does not fatigue me. That’s the goal right? And with that, there is no pain present
My routine is as follows;

5 min warm up with a heating pad
(3) 20 min hangs (currently 15lbs)
10 minute rest periods in which I do 3-5 second jelqs
5 minutes warm down with a heating pad

What is the best way to target your tunica?

That’s a good question man. I really don’t know to be honest with you but I’m sure one of the pros will tune in and answer that for you. I would try the search though just to keep from getting scorn. I’m sure this subject has been touched on quite a few times. I know that I have seen it before but just don’t know where.

For me combining clamping and straight out hanging hits my tunica hard. Any sort of direction other than btc appears to be best for tunica fatigue. The tunica is of course stretched during btc, but some believe the ligs come into play more in this position.
