Why we don't gain from hanging

Sorry to hear. How long are you hanging for? Time wise?

I haven’t gained since the first .5” or so in the beginning either. My latest hope is that by using heat religiously like I did in the beginning I might be able to gain again. I slacked off on the heat aspect of things as a way of getting the same hang time out of less time in the day available. This roughly corresponded with when my gains stopped too, however. For the next few months I plan on hanging with a heating pad wrapped around my wang keeping it very warm for the first half of every set I hang.

Anyone ever had the experience of quitting using heat for a while and then starting up again only to discover that heat was very important to making gains?

I slack with heat now too. I need to get my IR lamp again.

So if you’ve gained from jelqing and switched to hanging because you no longer were gaining with manual exercises you should use a hanger/extender which doesn’t grip the whole penis? Examples of these are vac hangers? Why is this necessary? Is the bib applicable?

The Bib grips the penis, so no, it’s not applicable.

You can Google Vac Hanger or search here, or go look in the Review forum.

I happen to think monkeybar’s devices are about as good as you can get, but that’s just me.

Check out the Review forum. The information is here.

So that means once you got your lig gains, the bib is worthless? Surely lig gains from the bib are not the only thing.

That I don’t know.

I was just clarifying Dino’s point and trying to be helpful on the vac extender question.

Alright, lets wait for dino to clarify himself. What other gains are there to be made from the bib if these are not tunica gains?

I think the point is the Bib’ doesn’t hit specifically the tunica. Tunica also is worked, but only the part that is not grabbed by the hanger - expecially the base of the penis.

Extenders tend to work the whole penis, but at light intensity; also fulcrum hanging, fulcrum stretches, TOW stretches hit tunica, IMHO.

Well now I am going to wait before I try to hit the tunica due to my injury.

I think one reason gains piddle out is because the supporting tissues become stronger.

As you progress through your hanging career you have to focus the weight on a narrower and narrower range of tissues. As Bib said, divide and conquer. It’s true. If you have x pounds supported by 50 units of strong tissue, it’s not being stretched as much as when only 10 units are taking the same load.

Practically, that means going to increasingly more specific hanging angles. SO or BTC won’t cut it forever.

All of this talk reverts me back to my own thinking, how could more weight cause you to gain less? Lets just say the supporting tissues of the penis become stronger due to the prolonged stretching. Wouldn’t it only make sense that adding a little more weight would be the only way to overcome the bump in the road? Sure jumping from 5 pounds to 10 pounds could cause problems. (I know, I tried, very uncomfortable.) Usually because you could cause injury, which means you can’t work out your unit, which means no gains.

I am new to hanging, so everything is going quite nice for me. But I would like to get all of these bugs figured out before problems arise. Thanks

To elaborate, I gained reasonably well for quite a while from hanging mostly BTC. Not spectacular results, but each month I got something. I took a month off and came back working the upper angles: OTS and fulcrum hanging. I made great progress from that over the first couple months (+ .25” in BPEL). I had never spent time focusing on that. Gains then again slowed to practically nothing. I tried BTC again and for the first time got absolutely nothing from hanging. Then, I switched to using a pulley under my desk to work the sides. I was seeing signs of another gain (post-hanging BPEL increase and BPFSL increase) when a thrombosed vein I had been having problems with put an end to everything. Had I been able to continue, I’m sure I would have gained a bit more.

After that, I would have further narrowed down. Instead of working both left and right OTL in the same day, I could have gone to only one. Spend all my time hanging left OTL for a month, then right OTL the next. Beyond that, find even more specific angles. Up, 45 degrees to the right or whatever.

So what I get from that is if you concentrate on one stretch for an extended period of time, you could(will) run into a plateau effect. Which then prompts you to switch to another stretch. And maybe if you keep switching it up, you won’t reach that plateau?
