  • To 10 we go [log]

    Pass two months I've been doing skin stretch without realizing it and lost a half inch. Down to 6.5 from my.start of 7.
    Bib corrected my technique and I've made a small increase in bpfsl by 1.5 cms.
    I've begun wrapping a quarter inch behind ridge and attaching hanger at about a half inch to inch back from start of wrap. I do prefer stretching shaft out while attaching; but bib disagrees upon it. Ive realized that it grasps the internals way to narrowly and will slouch the shit out of it even if it's painfully tight. So no go to that
    I went to five lbs to correct technique at about 3-6 sets a day; once I got a hang for it I increased to 7.5. I hit four sets back to back today and realized my head had become numb; so, I immediately stopped the set and did not continue. Like I had the previous two months of toughing it out. I may just decrease the weight back down next time numbness occurs. Seeing as it was a huge problem in the previous two months and probably played a part in my losses.

    Start EL 7 in
    Current EL 6.5 in
    BPFSL 18 cm before weight
    19.5 after

    Jack10,

    I don't agree or disagree. There is just no reason for it.

    >Ive realized that it grasps the internals way to narrowly and will slouch the shit out of it even if it's painfully tight. So no go to that<

    Use your left thumb to position the internals where you want them relative to the hanger.

    >I went to five lbs to correct technique at about 3-6 sets a day; once I got a hang for it I increased to 7.5.<

    Why would you do that?

    Why not just follow the stress progression in the NOS email? Especially after you have had problems. Just drop back to about six lbs, and work up slowly from there. There is no reason to be in a hurry. Also, you want to make sure your technique is right. The more weight you use with bad technique, the more damage you will do.

      Jack10,

      I forgot to ask if the numbness went away after you took off the hanger, or if it lingered.

        It lingered for about 3-5 minutes
        I dropped down to five, then went to six. Im currently at 7.5 lbs and having no pressure on head; I'm rolling it foward and pulling while attaching. I'm still about 19.5 bpfsl but can get 20 if I pull and push excessively hard.

          That is not abnormal. That is a lack of blood flow. As long as sets are limited to 20 minutes, it is not an issue. Try to restore blood flow quickly after you take off the hanger.

              You are free and welcome to do whatever you wish. I think you will find that hanging has a much better track record that using an extender.

              >I have perfect form I just haven't had a raging erection in so long decrease sets to 3!? I'm just baffled...<

              Did I say you have perfect form? You have provided almost no information for me to try and help you.

                What do you suggest for people with eq issues? Even when I decreased weight n sets still didnt have a 100% one. Just go back down again?

                  I have no idea! It is like I entered a movie, halfway through, and now I need to tell you what to do? What have you done since you got the hanger? Sets, weight, technique, etc..

                  There is no way I can give you advice without data.

                    I'm chilling at 7.5 lbs aiming from 4-8 sets a day. I think my lack of gains and eq may be from metabollic damage and restrictive eating. Now I'm eating at a surplus and feeling a lot better and libido increasing just after a week. When I stopped for two days I lost a cm on bpfsl; first break though since November so not sweating it.
