Mod edit: split discussion of light vs.heavy weight out from “Hanging with FIRe” thread
0.1 mpa is the starting point for adding heat and no heat should be applied below this.
0.17 mpa is the max and is the start of the elastic region and no heat should be applied above this and should try not to apply weight above this. I think his comment was that it is ineffective to work above this point.
0.5 mpa is the start of the plastic region
I believe that plastic region is the key. I think that if we can establish that on an individual basis one has an honest, science based shot, at gains. If the 0.5 Mpa based of the load calculator is the start of the plastic region it would make a ton of sense. There are so many old school PE guys that got the 20+ pound and up that made huge gains.
This thread by Shiver actually goes hand and hand with what Bib and several other big gainers experienced with weight. Bib got up to 45 LB (he tested 65 but just to see if the hanger could handle the weight) but that 45 was something he did for a few weeks at best. Let us not forget he used a rice sock as heating source and would heat the first half of all his AM sets.
The one thing I see that never gets addressed on these boards is that girth plays a very big role in how much weight your penis can handle while hanging. A man with a 140mm placid girth will be able to withstand much more weight than let´s say a man with 100mm girth. So while reading these forums I can understand that it can become overwhelming and in some case misinforming to read the weight disparity from one individual to another without understanding the such a variable. This whole subject needs its own thread.
Now, I think that the plastic region threshold might be able to be lowered but I honestly think that if we base it similar structures such as ligaments and tendons then one can assume that 25% reduction in weight required thanks to heat. I believe there are several articles on this matter on the web.
I think I will post a thread on this subject. See if the smart people on the forum can help us find the girth to weight solution.
