Straight Into Hanging.GoodBad Move

Straight Into Hanging.GoodBad Move

Hello all, as the title suggests I am considering moving straight into hanging. I’d like it if you would share your opinion on this approach.

A little about me..

My PE experience is limited to a handful of jelqing and/or clamping sessions sprinkled throughout the last two months from which I have seen no gains but positive PI’s such as (minor) increased vascularization and better flaccid hang. My personal situation and living arrangements during this time have been volatile, to say the least, which has prevented me from maintaining a regimented routine. I have however had time to order myself a bib starter and a set of PE weights from The Good Professors of Penile Enlargement, Bib and Monty and have consequently got myself a neat little PE tool kit along with a plush new apartment that affords me the couple of hours privacy a day that we all know can be so essential to our enlargement efforts.

I am 26 years old. 6’2” 210lbs (lean).

NBPEL 6.5”
MSEG 5.25”

During my past jelqing and/or clamping sessions I was unable to reach fatigue despite often jelqing almost continuously for up to an hour and clamping several 10min sets per day and often clamped edging for up to 45mins.

Rightly or wrongly this has lead me to believe that my penis will be able to bear a leap straight into hanging and adsing. Here is the routine I began on Monday 8th June ‘09.

ADS 8-9 hours (all day while at work) wearing 2 wedged rings 10oz each.

Hang 4 x 20 min w/ 5.5lbs SD/BTC (while writing at my desk, I’m an aspiring author)

Repeat Mon to Fri with weekends total rest.

Haven’t had any problems so far though I obviously realise I’m only two days in.

Would really appreciate any comments or advice.

Does this look like over training?

Is my goal of 8” x 6” realistic?

And in what time frame? I’m hoping 12 months of this should get me there.

Lastly I just want to make a point of how amazing this forum really is, the wealth of knowledge is astonishing and the courtesy and generosity exhibited by all the members here contributes to a very genuine, inspirational and welcoming sense of community.

Thank you all.

Welcome Classic,

Although most people advise starting with the newbie routine, if you can’t stay consistent with a manual routine, you could start with light hanging. I know of at least a few members here who have done it.

Yeah I’d watch out for over training. You’re supposed to start pretty low weight with a bib, the first couple of weeks is usually a transitional phase where your penis skin/tissue gets used to the clamping abuse of the bib. Especially since you haven’t done much PE before starting to hang, you might want to take it easy. If you keep up with that pace you might be feeling some pretty intense “skin” fatigue fairly soon. What is your wrap?

Just remember, hanging isn’t a weight lifting contest.. the lower weight you can reach fatigue the better (and safer). I’d spend the first week or two getting used to wrapping/hanging correctly rather than actively seeking out fatigue. I know I always preferred the lower weight/more sets approach. I know I over train fairly easily, but just pay attention to your EQ and use plenty of heat.

Whatever you decide to do, good luck!

The point in doing manual exercises is not to cause fatigue. You simply need to start very light and very gradually increase the routine as you start getting positive PIs (especially improved EQ). When an increase in the routine no longer causes an improvement in your PIs and they start to deteriorate, that means that you should reduce your routine to the level that was giving you optimal PIs and maintain that level for as long as it produces gains.

You should have started with either the Newbie routine or the Linear Newbie routine. Considering that you didn’t get improved EQ (or neglected to mention it if you did), it is likely that you were way over training from the start.

Clamping is an advanced exercise and shouldn’t be done by Newbies as it can easily lead to injury and will likely cause over training to an unconditioned unit.

You say you did only a handful of PE sessions within your first 2 months of PE. Without consistency, you cannot expect any technique (manual exercises included) to produce gains. Also, a handful of sessions would almost certainly not be sufficient to condition your unit to the level that it could handle an hour of jelqing + several 10 minute clamping sets + 45 minutes of clamped edging in a single day.

Some newbies can do (and often need to do in order to gain) 1 hour+ long sessions and still get positive PIs, but this is rarely the case. The main indicator of whether you were over training from the start should be whether you got improved erections. If the answer is no, than you were almost certainly over training.

I don’t think he was referring to cable clamping. Just the hanger clamp round his penis while hanging

I don’t think so. He said:

As you can see, he started hanging yesterday.

If you want primarily length, then I see no problem with your jumping straight into hanging. THe only issue is that hanging is a bit tricky. It takes awhile to figure out how to do it right—maybe several weeks. You might get some gains quicker by doing a consistent routine of manual stretching.

Also, the problem with your routine in the past appears to be lack of consistency. It’s not like you need to hang to achieve gains; what you need is to be consistent—with whatever routine you choose.

Further, your previous efforts have been mainly directed at gaining girth—jelqing and clamping. Why the switch now? Hanging is primarily for length.

If you’re going to hang, just make sure you start with light weights (5-7#, I recommend) and increase the weight only very gradually.

During the newbie phase, I do not believe gain are a matter of fatigue. I’m not sure that should be your goal at first. I think the tissues have an inherent reserve for gains, based on their microscopic structure, and that that reserve can be tapped quickly (within 2 or 3 months) and converted to length and girth.

Once that reserve is exhausted, the process changes. It’s at that point where the concept of “fatigue,” or rather time under load where you can really feel the stretch, comes into play.


Enter your measurements in the PE Database.

Thanks everyone for the timely replies. Some great advice.

RandomGiant;

I use the HTW, which I have to say is a phenomenal PE tool. I have been experimenting with it and the bib over the last few weeks and have found what comfortably gets me through a 20 minute set. I will now pay strict attention to my skin condition, thanks.

Gjurbo;

I did see and failed to mention (sorry) that my EQ and E frequency improved via jelqing/ clamping. While my not feeling any kind of fatigue after some relatively intense manual sessions did give me some confidence in tackling a hanging routine it was not the basis of my decision, which was in fact, to be honest, impatience. I have been studying these boards for more than a few months now and my frustration at not being able to adhere to a schedule whilst I was armed with the knowledge to do so meant that by the time my circumstances allowed I was far to keen to get into the nitty gritty of PE and had lost the patience for manual exercises. While I will not apply this same impatient attitude to my hanging routine, I thought it would better serve my personal motivation to pursue that which I saw the greatest chance of gains in.

I will, based on your advice, closely monitor my PI’s and if they indicate, possibly move back to the Linear Newbie Routine.

Mansun;

I was using the cable clamp for both clamping and clamped edging.

I think I may have enough of a grip on what works for me, hanging wise. More to learn I’m sure, but enough to get going. I did think about beginning again with the newbie routine now that my circumstances permit, however based on my relatively limited experience I am assuming my unit can take or will quickly adjust to the stresses of hanging and, in my reasoning, hanging seems to be where the majority of members are coming by their length gains. I’ve now hung 2 days in a row 4 x 20 sets w/ 5.5 lbs with no numbness, coldness, very little discoloration of the head and no slippage so it seems my assumption is so far proving correct.

As far as switching from girth (jelqing/clamping) to length (hanging), I wasn’t consciously focusing on girth previously, more just looking for growth/conditioning of any kind and manual stretches being the only other practicable method available always seemed unbearably tedious.

The consensus I’m taking from the replies is that going straight into hanging, at low weights, shouldn’t present a problem, except for perhaps some skin irritation. Glad to hear it and thanks all for your input.

Now am I day dreaming to think I’ll achieve my goal of 8 x 6 within 12 months or is it do able?

Oh, and I’ll have monthly progress reports posted for all to see/appreciate/critique/congratulate.

Cheers.

Why not do a light newbie routine for a month.
Maybe you were overtraining.

Check out “less is more”.

Why are you in such a hurry? Just follow your routine consistently and be happy with any gains that you get.

This is a marathon, not a sprint. Slow and steady wins the race.

I wish I could hang I just don’t have the time or Patience.

I jumped in to hanging and never had a problem just follow the newbie routine and start out about 2 1/2 to3 pounds with 20 min hang sessions.The time flies for me and I get an awesome lig pull watching the news.You might take the time and figure out how to rap properly trust me you will learn that fast.Also use lotion with vitamin E that will help for recovery on the skin if you need it.


5/27/09 start>>> BP Length 5.5 NBP 5 Girth 5.5

7/16/09>>> BP Length 6 NBP 5.5 Girth 5.5.

Thank you PE and Thunders.

I hate manual stretching, it always makes my glans sensitive, but I love hanging, I multi-task when hanging.


My goal is to be the best me, mind, body and soul, PE is part of achieving the best me.

I have a big sensitive glans too,calloused hand don’t fill good after a few grasps.

It sounds like you’re on your way, but I would like to add my 2 cents about your statement above. I think it is a widely held misconception that most inches are gained through hanging, and I’ve never seen any data to support that. Early on, many guys made outlandish claims about length gains through hanging, which basically nobody has been able to reproduce.

IMO most inches are gained through manual exercises. Most gains are gotten in the newbie phase, and most newbies don’t hang—they use the newbie routine. Most guys only turn to hanging when manual exercises start to fail them. Some gain a little and are very happy to share their progress. But others don’t gain, or don’t gain much.

Even after months of hanging failed to produce results for me, I still managed to gain length using a good old jelqing and stretching routine.


Enter your measurements in the PE Database.

You can gain length from hanging—outlandish or not, people do gain. Just be smart about sessions of 20 minutes with 10 minute breaks, and give yourself time to really learn technique. As you slowly increase the weight, your technique will need to improve to maintain comfort. I think it took me 2-3 months before I really started getting my technique right.. then I was able to increase the weight more… (while maintaining comfort)

Personally, I use HTW directly on the skin/ with theraband over it. I’ve never had slippage issues, at least that’s what I would recommend in terms of a wrap. Wrap the attachment point a little thicker with theraband to make sure the hanger can get a good grip on your internals….

I agree that you should wait a month (do the newbie routine at least for a little while). Many gain .5” to .75” just from the newbie routine—at least give it a try & get some of those easy gains first, then move into hanging…

I waited about a month to start hanging. Then I started at a very conservative 2.5lbs.. it was at least a few months before I started moving past 5,6, 7lbs etc… anyway, if you take it slow, I think you’re fine hanging early.

Most would advise you not to hang until you’re more experienced, I would just say—if you’re careful like I was, I don’t think you’ll get hurt. Just watch your PI’s and back off if you get too much pain—whether its attachment point stress or internal stress on the structures.
