Hello everyone, this is my first post here and it’ll also serve as my progress report.
Right now I’m 21 years old.
The reasons why I’m here are that I want the extra motivation as well as expert insight. I’ve read up on the newbie routine and various posts and guides about how to best begin and how to avoid injury.
Without further ado, let’s get to my routine and where I aim to go from here.
I follow the newbie routine of:
5mins hot wrap
5mins of stretching
5mins hot wrap cooldown
However, due to my own circumstances, there are some differences with the routine and what I actually do.
The hot wrap isn’t microwaved rice in a sock. I do this routine under the shower, (only place I have that amount of privacy for that length of time) and I generally just run warmer-than-usual water over my member, usually for about a minute or so. I’m in absolutely no position to get a sock and fill it with rice, but I will see about investing in a flannel and using that instead.
The 5 minutes of stretching is just that. I firmly grasp my penis with one hand around the shaft (never the head) and I pull outwards, upwards, downwards, right, left, and then the 4 corners diagonally, and then outwards again, 30 seconds each. I read somewhere that you should pull the foreskin back prior to doing this, yet whenever I do that and stretch, the skin just goes back over the head anyway. I’m aware of not just tugging the skin forward but the whole penis. I should mention I am also conscious of not having an erection while doing any part of this routine. Most I ever have a half chub.
The 10 minutes of jelqing follows immediately after the stretching. I have only access to simple hand-soap for lubrication, and suddenly buying Vaseline or something similar would seem very sketchy. I find it sufficient, however.
I use a diver’s OK grip where the thumb is above, alternating hands, going from the bottom of the base as far down as I can go, moving up for 3 seconds ending under the head. I do 200 of these to go for the full 10 minutes. How tight I go is hard to describe. It doesn’t cause me pain, but it’s not just sliding up the skin either. I generally go as tight as I can while still being perfectly comfortable. I’ve only encountered about 2 of those red spots.
The 5 minutes of hot wrap following is the same as before. Sometimes I don’t even really bother.
Today is my 3rd rest day. I go two days on and one day off, meaning I started on the 7th of this month.
What I’m hoping to get out of replies to this thread is encouragement, tips and tricks, and injury prevention advice. Generally all advice is welcome.
Hopefully this wasn’t too long a post. I’ll update regularly or if I suddenly wake up with another inch.
Also I just realized I can’t edit after 10 minutes after posting this thread, so I’ll add my measurements (including my height and weight if it matters) to my first reply I suppose.
