What is "magic" about the 20 minute set
I am fairly new to hanging. I’ve done my reading on this site and Bib’s site.
I understand that the convention is that you:
1. Use the amount of weight that is required to get you to fatigue in a 20 minute set
2. Add weight in small increments in order to “ride the fatigue”
3. Mange your time such that you hang for at least 10 hours a week
4. Use Heat
This is what I have done for the past month or so. I am still hanging BTC as my primary angle and SD as my secondary in order to maximize my lig gains before attacking the Tunica.
The issue that I have is that I loose a lot of time between sets with unwrapping, jelqing, and re-wrapping.
I have tried to stay wrapped between sets … but that doesn’t seem to give me the relief that I require.
In order to boost the total hanging hours, I have been tinkering with the idea of doing 30 minute sets.
I would apply the same concepts as above but would probably end up increasing the weight at a lower rate.
My logic is that in addition to increasing the total hanging hours, I would also increase the amount of time that I am “riding the fatigue”
Has anyone experimented with sets that are longer than the magic 20 minutes?
