The Long Game: Learning with Longerstretch, Key Principles to Make Sustained Growth
This thread was originally posted at MOS and I think it deserves it place here as well. So keep in mind this was originally intended for the MOS audience which is generally of the more is more approach and never ever take rest days.
“I’ll preface this with not everything mentioned here will be applicable to newbies and many things I’ll discuss will go beyond this thread. However some of the things will be applicable to newbies and veterans alike. Personal research, thought and application will be warranted.
This thread will start and evolve. I will first seek to lay out some principles that I have found to provide sustained growth. I will then in as layman’s terms as I can attempt, provide some of the science behind the principles. Continuous growth until end goal is reached is ultimately all our goals but many stall after making initial gains and keep sputtering along with little to no progress. The response to this stall, especially on this forum in particular, is well wrong.
I fully expect for many here to dismiss some if not all these principles. Especially those set in their ways. Revolutions aren’t accomplished in a day. I also expect with enough interest and time the majority will come around, especially when results… well results speak for themselves.
I don’t claim to have all the answers. Many things discussed here you can see evolving in my own progress report, especially with my comeback this year. However I am gaining consistently and my hope is to bring those results for other souls. Currently I am gaining 0.1 cm per week during my campaign, which is as fast as I could probably hope for being that I’ve done PE for 15 years.
Again this will be a evolving thread as there is too much to discuss in one post. Much that will be discussed I have recently talked about in my log and in other threads.
1.) Decondition Breaks: I put this at top of the list for a reason. The other forums have accepted decon breaks as a tool but this site in particular seems to resist them. Not surprisingly, to me at least, there are more and more cases of gains stalling here. My first post after this one will go in on decon breaks and offer suggestions. Straight up everyone should have scheduled decon breaks in their routine if they want to have sustained growth.
2.) Using BPSFL as a guide for their routine. BPSFL can be a guide on BPEL gains. You can also use them to determine the effectiveness of your routine. On this principle I will discuss heavy on accurate measurements, basics of the stress-strain curve and how that relates to connective tissue and the penis as a whole and even how you can use these measurements as a guide for when you need a decon break.
3.) Therapeutic heat: ideal heat should be 102 to 110 F (38.9- 43.3 C). 45°C and up causes tissue death, below this and the connective tissue will not behave like we want it to in the stretch . I don’t mean warm up either. I don’t warm up. This heat is a tool only to be used under a tensile load. A natural cool down (no ice) is advised after heat and this as well will be under tension.
These principles can be used to adjust any routine. I am now making great gains using “light” loads and the majority of my routine is right at an hour. More to come stick around and learn with Longerstretch.”
