the ideal hanging weight
Under different apects, this question as been asked quite a few times. Still I’d like to ask it again, but put it in different words(I did use the forum search and read the hanger’s 101, among others): So my question should rather be: What to do if you don’t feel a decent stretch when hanging, and you’re still new to it. I’ve started hanging beginning of January. November 05, I’ve started (after a 6 months experimental phase) a rather lenght-emphasizing workout, mainly consisting of different manual stretches, stretching as hard as I could until fatigue set in (the fatigue of my arms!). I did gain a good bit of it, but uh oh, my arms! That’s how I found interest in hanging. I just measured that my hand pull overhand grip, can create a force of about 15-20 pound (in weight). That’s what makes me feel stretched. Now back to hanging I started with 5 pound SO and up to 11’, I’m now at 8 pounds, but all I can feel is the pressure behind my glans after 20 mins, not the stretch in my shaft or tunica. I also feel like my tunica has rather toughened in the last few weeks stretching with 6-8 pounds only. What would you suggest me to do? Better increase the weight, or hang more often than 2 sets a day, or combine more weight with additional manual stretches?
