Gains: Length vs Girth
I’m hoping to get a better grasp on this issue:
After reading many opinions throughout Thunder’s Place I’m still not certain about how -or even if- girth gains could hinder length gains or vice versa. I figure it best to use my own current status and goals as an example.
starting on 8/15/03 - bpel: 6 7/8” eg: 4 7/8” - nbpel: 5 7/8”
current on 10/7/03 - bpel: 7 1/4” eg: 5 1/8” - nbpel: 6 1/4”
My goal: bpel: 8” - eg: 5 3/4 - 6” - nbpel: 7”
For my first 4 weeks I was very consistent (5 on 2 off) about the newbie routine: Warm wrap/stretch/jelq/kegel. You get the picture. This is when I experienced most of the gains seen above.
I have for the last 3 weeks been hanging (Bib Starter) between 5-10 lbs for two hours daily, 5 days a week. I have not been jelqing beyond restoring circulation between sets and have maintained my girth and length gains but have yet to see any length gains from hanging.
I had hoped to focus on achieving my length goal first, and then concentrating on my girth goal (much like Bibs History reveals) mostly because I get the sense from some threads that length gains may be adversely affected by girth gains (and vice versa) - it is also much less of a time commitment to focus on one thing at a time (because of the nature of my job I can do a lot of hanging during the day).
My fear is that I am missing an opportunity for girth gains as I concentrate exclusively on length. I think that my goals are very reasonable and can be attained given the right amount of dedication, which I have. I just don’t want to prolong this unnecessarily because of this ” length vs girth” issue meaning:
If I can work girth concurrently with length without hindering one or the other I will.
Is this a valid concern? Is there any consensus on this issue? If there are any vets with a personal experience regarding this it would especially help.
