Thoughts: Rest Days, Importance of Jelqing
I’m posting this here because I cannot post in the Penis Enlargement yet. Please let me preface by saying that these ideas are only meant for those who have successfully completed the newbie routine. Always listen to your body, do your own research, and be smart.
Getting into it, I’m really starting to believe in Bib‘s methodology of not taking rest days (when it comes to gaining length at least). I think this is one reason why guys that are seriously dedicated to extending (when combined with manuals or hanging) for an appreciable amount of time see the best length gains. Staying in an extended state doesn’t allow the penis to shrink and heal back stronger with scar tissue as it wants.
When we stretch our penis, we inevitably form contusions in the smooth muscle. These contusions are basically tiny knots that want to heal back stronger with scar tissue. I feel that stretching every day (prolonged time under tension) allows us to stay one step ahead of our penis, and not shrink and heal shorter. The trick, I believe, is to create just enough cumulative, yet controlled damage to stay in the “gain zone” and not get hurt.
I’m well aware that none of this is new thinking by any means. It is just a realization of what I’ve come to believe. However, one thing that I feel is drastically underemphasized is the importance of ***Jelqing***!
Jelqing, I feel, has the ability to work and massage out the contusions we create during our exercise, while also improving blood flow to our penis. IMO, this is critical.
It is essentially the equivalent of foam rolling a muscle after a hard workout. During hard strength training, contusions are inevitably formed in the muscle. This is why top athletes get deep tissue massage weekly, and also why massage is proven to not only increase range of motion, but performance in general. Foam rolling and other forms of active release are also a valuable tool to an injured athlete. For instance, it is important for an athlete to work out contusions in a strained hamstring (after rest of course) to break up some of the scar tissue that has formed, and encourage the rest of the scar tissue to be more pliable, and run in a favorable direction. This way, the injured muscle is less likely to become re-injured.
Jelqing, when performed properly, is like foam rolling and active release for our penis. It allows us to work out the contusions from prior exercise and stay healthy within that “gain zone”. Anyway, let me know if you guys agree.
