How do you stay motivated when you hit a wall?

How do you stay motivated when you hit a wall?

I’ve been a PE practitioner for a little over a year now. I have made great gains, but lately I seem to be stuck around the 6.5 long mark. Maybe I’m measuring to often, but it seems like I just can’t gain anything. 

Every time I measure and am hopeful that I have gained and I haven’t, I go into a withdrawal of sorts where I don’t PE at all for a week or so. Eventually, I start back up again, but there are times where I just feel like giving up. 

How do you guys stay motivated when you hit a wall seriously? This is very frustrating!

The potential to gain something for a routine that takes less than 1/2 hour per day, 5 times/week motivates me. The possibility that I will lose a little bit of the gains I have made motivates me. The greater EQ that I’m seeing also motivates me. I don’t need any more motivation. I will likely be doing it for life, I think.

Starting Size: April, 28, 2010: NBPEL-7" Girth-6" (base, MSG, glans)

Currently: BPEL-8" NBPEL-7.25" Girth-6.25" (base)/6.125" (MSG)/6.125" (glans)

I’ve just continued PE’ing even when I hit a wall. Never giving up just trying different things, if one doesn’t work something else may.

PE is a habit, I very rarely think ”WOW I cannot be fucked to do this”. I just get on and do it.

Hey Quickie

Well personally, that is one of the many reasons I don’t measure. I find that if you measure too often this (exactly what you’re going through) happens. When I hit the wall and it seems like nothing is working, I remember my past gains and know that I can and will grow again. I reason with myself about how nothing worthwhile comes easy, and try to focus on the health benefits of PE instead of gains. I also remember an old proverb “expectation postponed is making the heart sick”. So I take a week or two off (mini-decon break I suppose), and then return to PE and go on auto-pilot. (just do it for the sake of routine, that works half the time)

Other times I’ll listen to music or watch TV (with a timer) and jelq or stretch so I don’t think about it as much, and before long I notice all the PI’s are back and I’m looking longer and thicker again (don’t know if this is an option for you in your current housing situation). Maybe you can fantasize about how wonderful things will be and how great you’ll feel once you reach your goals (works for me as well).

The fact that I could lose all the effort I fought for by being discouraged and stopping for too long, keeps me going as well (I hate doing stuff over again or repeating something that should’ve been done, imagine getting to 7 EL and then losing it and having to get back to 7 EL all over again. How much time, effort and energy did you waste? That burns me up). When all else fails I get competitive, and follow the quote here (I can’t remember who said it, but I know it’s in the database here) ” Imagine your goals, now picture someone you despise obtaining them” (I know I butchered it) or something like that. That almost always gets me into high gear (I’ve earned myself an enemy or two so this works for me).

When all else fails try making PE fun, switch up your routine, add something new to get you over the hump, and hopefully the new exercise will shock you into growing a little and knock you back on the gain train as it were (I found that increasing intensity when I hit the wall like you have only leads to injury so be careful).

I hope you can benefit a little from this as it has helped me bust through the wall a number of times. We all have dark days when we PE, you just have to grit your teeth and push through it. Whatever motivated you before may serve to reignite your passion now. All I can say is, don’t give up, it’s more than worth it.

We’re all rooting for you, Zerone

I agree with Zerone. Measure less. Think of progress as yearly goals as opposed to fretting when you haven’t gained each month. Focus on great EQ and keep PE fun, as soon as it becomes chore there really isn’t any point doing it. Everyone goes through these periods, I use it as an excuse to have a deconditioning break. Before you know it your desperate to resume your workouts and your willy will probably be grateful for the break. When all else fails I search through the Thunder archives for other members logs/gains/pictures and this always motivates me!

And the end of the day, it’s a marathon not a sprint. PE for life.

Best of luck buddy :)

Sept 2008: 6.0 X 4.9

Sept 2012: BPEL: 7.125 x 5.125

Nov 2015: Returned, stats unknown.

I stay motivated by imagining how I would feel once I have accomplished my goals. Also in the span of a lifetime PE is SO worth it, a few years of work can get me something that I previously thought was impossible.

Started May 2010- 5.9 BPEL X 5.5 MSEG

January 18, 2011- 7.0 inches/17.7cm BPEL X 5.5 MSEG

Goals- 8.0nbp X some more base girth

Well, I`ve been stuck at 6 7/8” length for several months now and I`m seriously considering an extended break, as nothing else seems to be working.

The only other thing that has been on my mind recently is hanging, but I can`t quite bring myself to go that route yet.

As for motivation, the alternative is a small dick.

Not an option.

At your size that isn’t the alternative Haha.

I really don’t think there are many tricks to be motivated. If you want something enough you will make it so! Speaking of which. It’s 11PM, I’m tired and have to do 3x20minute sets of hanging yet. Better get going.

There’s a jiu-jitsu adage that goes something like this: when something’s not working, do something else. That’s exactly what I do when I hit a wall with anything in life, and especially in PE. In PE, I’ve done it all. I love all the different types of exercises, but I usually focus on one or maybe two at a time. Now when I feel that I’m hitting a wall, I just change up my entire routine and give something else a chance that focuses on what I am aiming for and might approach it in a different way.


Hey guys. Thanks for all of the encouraging replies! They have been helpful. I have measured again lately, and I’m pretty sure I have gained a small amount.

I am going to take the advice of not measuring often. I had been trying to keep measuring down to two month intervals, but I’m not even going to do that anymore. It is going to be a very long time before I measure again. I’m thinking four or five months. Meanwhile, since I am focusing on length, I need to find some different stretches to do to shake things up. hanging is definitely not an option as I do not have the time or the privacy.

You guys are all right that even after a disappointment like this, the PE bug eventually bites again. PE has become a part of my psyche and I think it always will be. Thanks again guys. Maybe this thread can be a good place for other discouraged guys to come to.

Simple to stay motivated, I want to fuck as many women as I can and I want all of them to remember me fucking them when they get married. They way I look at it is if I have a bigger dick and fuck them good, then they go tell their friends and I fuck their friends also. So I PE.

Then 01/15/08 EBPL: 6.25 EG 5.10 Now 10/05/09 EBPL 7.75 EG 5.25 Girth work for 103 days.

New Short Term Goal: EBPL 8.0 EG 5.5 Lifetime goal 9x6.5 PE log and journal

In any achiever the first quality is the power to endure. Constancy and loyalty to cause.

I don’t ever measure my dick lately. I measure with the feel, and positive EQ, etc. PE is a very long-term thing.. Measuring regularly is setting yourself up for disappointment, because PE is two steps forward, one step back, a lot of the times; and when you measure during a one step back, you feel like WTF. But if you pay attention to your growth over every six month period, things continue to move forward. Unfortunately there is no McPE, no quick results, for the most part, so measuring all the time is a waste of energy and often counter-productive. Most all of the big gainers agree, I think, that frequent measuring is not important.


McPE? Now that`s funny.

Anything worth doing takes time. We live in this instant gratification universe where we can lose our minds waiting for 2 minutes while the microwave heats up our soup, and some choose to go hungry for hours because they can`t stand the wait.

People are amusing.

The constant measuring of the dick slows our conscious minds down so that each minute seems like an hour, and that the growth never seems to come.

I have been at PE for a year in december and I realise that I`m just beginning to learn how to make my dick grow.

The first inch of length came as newbie gain, and I have hit a plateau for the last few months that has challenged me.

For the last week I have stopped mechanical stretching entirely and do manual stretches throughout the day with moderate intensity. I will continue this until the new year and measure then.

Began December 2009 at 5 7/8" length and 5" girth.

As of December 5th 2012 7 3/8" BPEL and 6 1/8" base girth.

Going for the magic 8"x6"
