Minimal gain while in tube?

Minimal gain while in tube?

I just bought my pump and began pumping, however, I see minimal dimension gains while in the tube. I’ve been following the program outlined in Pumping 101. I normally pump between 4-7 in. HG. Even at 7 in. HG I see minimal size gains over my erect dimension. Maybe .5” in BPEL and little no gain in girth. Furthermore, since I started pumping my gains have actually slowed. Right now I simply combined pumping with manual stretching and Jelqing. I reduced the amount of time spent Jelqing in order to begin pumping. Am I doing something wrong or should I try higher pressure or longer duration of sessions?

½” gain in the pumped state sounds about right. Don’t injure yourself by overpumping in an attempt to see instant results. Slow & steady will get you there without injury.

It takes time. Be consistent and patient. Tissue only stretches so much, per unit of time. No matter how much you want it to, it will only grow so much and pushing things past that you will be headed for trouble.

Sometimes that’s the hardest thing for people to accept… it doesn’t all happen in one day, or one month. People get all excited about it and their impatience gets the best of them. They do marathon pumping sesions or crank that pressure up, to speed things along. Then they injure themselves and end up being even farther behind than if they had just been patient in the first place.

I’ve done it, and many others have done it, but it’s kinda stupid, really. You don’t want to end up with some hideous injury. It CAN happen. But, the decision is totally yours.

Avocet has laid out a good, fast, and SAFE program of action. Don’t be too fast to deviate from it, before giving it a chance. I gained one-quarter inch from it the first month. Then I slacked-off for about six weeks. Now, halfway through my second month, it has gained another one-eighth inch. I use low pressure, between 3½” Hg and 4” Hg. More than that and it begins to get painful, and you don’t want that. A little soreness is okay, but pain means you need to back off. That’s my experience so far.

It works, if you let it. :)

Bfte,

It’s actually good you don’t expand very much in the tube in the beginning. If you did, it would be mostly because of skin swelling and you don’t want that, do you?

I am close to packing my 2” tube these days, but I had to do 3 good months of regular moderated pumping to get there. Some of it is due to skin swelling that is hard to avoid but some of it is due to tunica expansion.

As far as length is concerned, you won’t gain much unless you pack the tube. Pumping is mostly a girth exercise.


Stats (bp) 2004/08/19 8.0 X 5.5" 2005/08/29 8.2 X 5.8" Goal - I am good for now

Be patient and consistent. A good long break for a month after about 6-7month of pumping works for most. Try drinking a large of water about an hour before pumping and more water during the day. Tissue lives on water.

I’ve gain to about 7.5 erect from about 6.0 over about 2 years of solid routine. I’ve been pumping for about 7-8 years but before the last two years just every now and then or when I could grab an hour without kids or wife around house. Now every MWF, off to gym and return and pump for an hour or so. Be patient and things will happen—Water and heat pad do wonders—Steve

The magic will happen, it just takes time and patience.

Just because you go out and buy a 200 pound barbell set, doesn’t mean you will have big muscles or can lift all of the weight in the first week or even the first year. You start off slow and over time add to the weight you can handle and your muscles slowly grow.

See where you are in a month or 3. But instead of constantly adding more pressure, stay in the 5-6 range but begin adding more time. Not right away, you are still a newbie.

Another thing you can begin right away is to begin kegeling while pumping. While the pump is expanding you externally, you can force blood in internally by kegeling. Kegel just as hard as you can and after doing 25-50, milk the tube for 25-50 strokes and repeat this cycle while you pump.

Another thing to add to your pump technique is to wrap the tube in a heat pad while you pump, and the warmth works wonders.

Follow these tips!!! They have certainly improved my pump sessions and THEY WILL increase your size gain in the tube.

hi fellas.. question.. does size gain in the tube equal any real gains outside of the tube? Electron said he gained “I gained one-quarter inch from it the first month. Then I slacked-off for about six weeks. Now, halfway through my second month, it has gained another one-eighth inch.” I’m assuming this is while in the tube.

TennSteven, you mentioned that you gained 1.5” EL. How long did you pump before you were able to achieve this much gain?

thanks,

point


Go Celtics!

Hey point1:

I’ve been at it for about 7-8 years. I did a lot of jelquing since discovering Tom Hubbards site then went on to pumping with homemade tube but as years went along the LAPump that I bought last year was worth the money for comfort and quality. I was around 6.25 and now a solid 7.5. In the tube I’m a little over 8” which boosts the old ego. If, If you can refrain from jacking off after pumping, I believe that cementing gain happen quicker…Steve

Thanks for the responses guys. I wasn’t expecting results overnight. I just hear all these people who get such great dimension gains while in the tube that I thought I was doing something wrong. I’m going to try the heating pad around the cylinder and see if that helps. I just always thought that I’d see more girth expansion while in the tube.

I’m wondering if we are getting a little confused or starting to talk about two different things, here.

I’ll chronicle what I have noticed.

When I started pumping, I didn’t have that much expansion either. It would “pull up” in the tube to maybe 1/4 inch longer than my normal erect length was at the time. I started at 5.75” length, and it would “pull up” to almost 6” in the tube under vacuum.

After it had been conditioned by a month of pumping, it would pull up to almost 6 1/2”, and my normal erect length had grown from 5 3/4” to 6”. (This is the 1/4” gain I was referring to, an actual erect gain in length, not how much or how little it pulls up in the tube.) I would wait a day or two without pumping, then measure, to make sure it was a “real” gain, not affected by recent pumping sessions or anything. After one month I had received a 1/4” gain in length, and a 1/16” gain in girth. (That’s a “growth ratio” of 4:1, see this thread about that if you are interested.)

The “pumped up” or “pulled up in the tube” length always leads the real erect length. It seems to have settled in at about 1/2” longer that the real erect length at any given time. Interestingly, This “pulled up” length always seems to correspond to my stretched flaccid length. They are always the same.

That seems normal - I must be the freak on here, because my pulled up length is about 8.5”, which is the same as my unstraightened erect measurement. All this proves to me is that my erection is truly shaped into that curve. My flaccid stretch is significantly longer than this.
