Giving up on hanging for now
Well I tried hanging for about 4 weeks, now I know that’s not long enough at all to judge its overall effectiveness but heres how my situation is:
I gained almost .75” over 3 months with manual stretching and jelqs.
I was in a period of rapid gain in both BPEL and BPFSL before I began hanging.
Once I started hanging all progress stopped.
I wasn’t even getting any extension to my BPFSL after hanging as I was after a stretch session.
I know that hanging is probably a good method for getting length, but for some reason or another I just wasn’t feeling like I was getting any stretch. I had no fatigue ever, I didn’t feel like I was really pulling on my ligs and tunica the same way that the stretches were, and I wasn’t getting any increase whether temporary or not. My conclusion is that there is something wrong in my technique, although I can’t imagine what it could be. Right now I will probably stop hanging and do manual stretches until I can break the 8” barrier. I was so close before I started that I was sure I’d break it within a few weeks, but once I started hanging I hit a wall. As of now I think I will postpone hanging until probably Christmas time, and even then I might start focusing on girth if I have surpassed my goal of 8”.
I hate the fact that I’m quitting, I’m by nature not a person who can quit something easily. I keep telling myself to keep with it, but it’s really hard when you know you can and were gaining easily but now it has stopped because of something you’re doing. Last night I did a normal manual stretch session and I was feeling the same good stretch that I was before I decided to hang. I will spend these next few months figuring out my mistakes so I can hopefully get back to hanging.
