Epiphany Moments, Targeting/Maintaining Erection Levels, and Adjusting The Jelq For Length or Girth: Ask The Experts

Big Al, of MaleEnhancementCoach.com, answers questions about epiphany moments, targeting and maintaining specific erection levels, and adjusting the jelq.

If you have questions you’d like answered in an Ask the Experts article, please PM Big Al

 

Q. I was wondering if any other members have experienced emotional breakthroughs with their training. Not so much about size but about confidence. Maybe it’s because I’m older, but I recently have hit a place in my life where I’m beyond caring about whether or not I’m good enough for someone. I’m doing this for ME, and if someone likes it then great! If not, the loss is theirs. It’s funny but when I embraced this viewpoint I feel like a weight has been lifted, and sex is actually fun again!

Al: Few things are as satisfying as observing someone having an epiphany moment! A person can come to the realization that the thing they feared was a creation of their own minds. It can be a step closer to learning how to put the ego in its place.

Emotional Visualizations are good for this, but true self-examination is necessary for this to be effective.

Q. I’m having a hard time keeping a 70% erection as instructed for my Squeezes. As soon as I start, my erection slowly declines after several reps and I need to stop to get the erection back. How do I counter this?

Al: Let’s say you’re targeting 70% average for Squeezes. You’ll induce an 80% erection then start the exercise- and continue it until you’re erection drops to 60%. This will give you a good range to work through and that 70% average.

Q. You mention altering the jelq exercise to target more length or more girth. So if I use a lower erection and less lube, it targets length, and more lube and erection targets girth? Is this so?

Al: Regarding the jelq: Correct on both counts. With less lube and erection, the exercise becomes more of a sliding stretch/length movement; whereas with more of an erection and lube it becomes more of a compression/girth movement.

With the higher erection/more lube variant, you’ll also want to slow donw the cadence for each rep slightly.

If you have questions you’d like answered in an Ask the Experts article, please PM Big Al

Q. I’m very new to training but want to add more to accelerate growth.

In the past few weeks I’ve bought a pump and an extender. I can also train all day if needed. Where do I start?

Al: Training is very much a scientific experiment you’re performing upon yourself to discover what works best, and as with all good experiments, you’ll want to avoid changing too many variables at one time before we have enough data and time to note changes.

We recommend all visitors to the site as well as beginners in training to START HERE.

Q. Hi Al. When I train it’s good for a couple of weeks, then I see to lose all EQ. I just can’t seem to tolerate training more than 2 or 3 weeks before EQ crashes.

What am I doing wrong?

Al: To ensure you’re training in a way where you can maintain longer momentum, this is what we want: at the beginning of a cycle, your training volume and intensity should be as such to where your initial performances are well within your comfort zone. As the cycle progresses, your EQ and conditioning should continue to improve. It’s not until you get to the final week of the cycle where you should begin to note a plateau.

Training in the above manner will ensure you can keep training for weeks in an ever increasing manner.

Q. I’m getting ready to start on your 3×20 hanging program for hanging but want to make sure I get the most of of my hanging.

What can I do to make the hang more intense?

Al: Propping your feet up, leaning back, etc. are methods for making the stretch more intense, but higher intensity isn’t what you need at this time. For now, let’s use the standard seated off the edge of the chair without any adjustments as the baseline.

Should you desire to increase intensity in the future, we know easily how to now do so.

DP 4000 Pumping Instructions for Beginners

DP 4000 Instructions for Beginners.

By Dr. Richard R. Howard II

Copyright @ 2020 this may be used for educational purposes but cannot be shared without author’s consent. Please respect this copyright.

Practice with the DP 4000, Learn to navigate it and understand its dynamics. Please note the time frame in mind for each step of progress or estimates that are given so the individual can know approximately the time duration for each stage of beginning, intermediate, and advanced. This depends on many factors and is certainly not engraved in stone for timeframe for beginner, intermediate, and advanced. This summer bedstand

Beginner. Six – twelve months duration. Once you familiarize yourself with the navigation of the software, proceed by entering on the left column minus inches of mercury (-inHg) vacuum numbers which are 3, 5, each performed at six seconds. The time is entered into the right column which will be six seconds each. This sequence will be used for approximately 10 minutes warm-up. If you find this sequence to be too intense then drop back to 2, and 4, particularly if the penis is curved. The remainder of the boxes on both columns can be checked off and not used for now. After warm-up, proceed to the triplet 3, 5, 6 which will automatically cycle for the time duration of the exercise. 20 minutes is the starting time for beginners. If you are uncomfortable with the above, use 3, 5 omitting 6 for the time being.

After approximately 2 to 3 months an additional set of numbers can be added, on the left column resulting in 3, 5, 6 and 3, 6, 7. Learn how to store the program to the computer, and also to the pump.

Checking off boxes. When the protocol is stored then retrieved, the full array of numbers check will present. For example, after warming up with the first group of numbers. 3, 5 for approximately 10 to 15 minutes you can cycle into the higher numbers. 3, 5, and 6 then moved to 3, 6, and 7. If it anytime the higher numbers feel uncomfortable back off to the first triplet. Time considerations, after two months add another 20 minute set for a total of 40 minutes. Upon completion of the first 20 minutes set, perform mild jelqs and stretching for five minutes, basically you are massaging the penis between the 20 minute workouts. Massaging your penis in this way is productive when pumping. It is useful to take breaks between the 20 minute sets such as this. Upon the conclusion of the two 20 minutes sets for a total of 40 minutes, initiate a fuller array of exercises such as jelqs and stretching, and base squeeze with edging. I have articles on the above that fully explain these exercises (available upon request) . The beginning phase lasts approximately six to twelve months. I am disinclined to be more aggressive than this, though there are variations that I would discuss upon a successful completion of the first 6 to 12 months. Please remember those of you who are not gifted with patience, that we are dealing with your manhood, safety first. In conclusion on the left column you will have the numbers 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7. On the left column will be six seconds in each box that corresponds to the numbers

This pattern, and nuances thereof will occur throughout your progression to advanced. I will present intermediate and advanced articles with the individual has completed the above.

Best regards,

Bagman’s Advanced Pumping Techniques: Effective Time

From The Bagman at PumpToys.com

Recommended by Dr. Howard of MyPenisDoctor.com

TIME AND THE PUMPING PROCESS
Many pumpers feel that they grow fast in the early part of a pump session, then seem to “Plateau” or reach a point where enlargement either stops or greatly slows down. It would seem logical to say that the longer you pump, the larger you would get. 
Not necessarily true!

The question is one of effective time. “Effective” means any time when the flow and gain of fluids that cause enlargement is taking place at the desired rate, and that is not something that occurs continually. Effective time also varies in the level of efficiency- as the flow reduces, the level drops. Pumping up faster or larger is a factor of effective time only. Time spent in the pump that’s not effective is totally wasted.

This fluid flow and gain process that creates enlargement is restricted by the pumping operation itself, in these three ways:

  • As swelling takes place, tissues are engorged- including those of the passageways bringing fluid in, actually reducing the diameters of those passageways. 
  • There is a pinching pressure attempting to close these passageways right at the point where the cylinder entry meets your body. The passageways are part of the tissue being compressed by the sealing surface of the tube.
  • It is further complicated by another easily demonstrated process, that of “vacuum collapse”. Take a soft tube, and connect it to your vac pump. With an open end, it will suck indefinitely. Now squeeze the tube down in the middle. As the opening gets narrower, two things happen. One, the flow through the restriction reduces- and two, the vac level on the restricted portion increases. There comes a point where the internal vacuum itself pulls the tube closed- and all flow stops.

All of these conditions combine to either restrict or stop the process of enlargement. The longer the condition lasts, the tighter the restriction can get- and thereby further reducing the level of effectiveness, ultimately ending effective time altogether. The issue is one of making all the time in the pump effective time, and maximizing the level of that effectiveness.

HOW DO YOU FIND OUT WHAT WORKS?

We did an experiment to try and measure the extent of this. To determine exactly what gain was occurring, we went to Displacement Pumping. (Explained in another Advanced Pumping Article) Two pumpers who run close to the same in size and usual enlargement rate provided the comparisons. We selected the one that usually pumped up faster as the control subject; and the slower one as the test subject. Both used STJ’s as cylinders, and both pumped wet with precisely the same level of water in the jar. Both jars were marked for measurement by adding water that had been precisely measured and creating a CC (Cubic Centimeter) scale on the side The scale started with the zero set at the water mark with the jar vertical and inverted, with enough water to cover the pumper. As the enlargement develops, it displaces water and raises the level on the scale- precisely measuring the volume of change. We did this experiment on four occasions using different schedules each time, with substantially different results.

The control subject would pump at a vac level of 5″, and hold it for 60 minutes.

The test subject would pump at the same vac level, but would interrupt the session with an alternate state as called for by the experiment schedule.

The result is measured in relative terms:
The change in volume (actual gain) of the test subject, as compared to the control subject expressed as a plus or minus percentage. The volume of the control subject’s gain over the zero mark would always be 100. If the test subject developed 10% less gain, the test score would be 90%. If the gain was identical, the score would be 100%; if the gain was 10% more, the score would be 110%. The “Relative effectiveness” is the score points gained per minute; obtained by dividing the score by the time at level.

Four test schedules were tried, as follows:

  1. Break at 15 minute intervals, exit and massage 2 minutes, return to vac level. (3 breaks)
  2. Reduce vac level to zero once every 15 minutes, hold zero for 1 minute, return to level.
  3. Reduce vac to zero every once every 10 minutes, hold zero for 1 minute, return to level.
  4. Reduce vac to 1″ every 5 minutes, hold for 30 seconds, return to level.

Here’s the scorecard of the test subject for these tests:

SCHEDULE  SCORE  TIME @ LEVEL  RELATIVE EFFECTIVENESS 
CONTROL  100  60 MINUTES  1.66 
#1  108  54 MINUTES  2.00 
# 2  111  57 MINUTES  194 
# 3  121  54 MINUTES  2.24

# 4  133  54 MINUTES  2.46 

 

SO-WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

In every schedule, taking breaks to restore circulation and relieve the closure resulted in faster net gain. Frequent reliefs of vacuum for short intervals are the most effective overall. The indication is that a sort of pulse-pumping with intervals is far more effective than constant pressure. It’s also logical to conclude that if the test had run for a two-hour period, the second hour score increases would have been greater than the first, because the loss of effectiveness in the control subject would be somewhat accumulative or progressive.

One other note- the subjects were sitting and not active during the tests. Activity would help relieve some of the restriction problems. It’s commonly recognized that being erect while in cylinder is more effective than a sitting position. This is due to the weight of the cylinder pulling downward, helping to reduce the pressure the vacuum can exert against the body in the seal area, thereby creating less restriction to fluid flow.

If you feel you have reached your “plateau”, try the take-a-break system; get your fluid passages open again, and- pump on!

 

Sex or Edging After Training and Hanging Too Heavy- Ask The Experts

Sex or Edging After Training and Hanging Too Heavy- Ask The Experts

Big Al, of MaleEnhancementCoach.com, answers questions about sex/edging after training and hanging too heavy.

If you have questions you’d like answered in an Ask the Experts article, please PM Big Al

 

Q. Is it a good idea to have sex after training?

Al: If you’re referring to male enhancement training- and you have no negative issues like performance anxiety or low EQ, then sex after training can be a great way to finish off your workout. This also applies to manual edging- e.g.: Stop and Starts.

Q1. I’ve worked up to hanging 15 pounds for over an hour…

…but I haven’t seen any growth in months. What is it I’m doing wrong?

Al: It needs to be understood that training using enlargement specific exercises isn’t quite like other forms of bodily training. The exercises, reps, etc. are all incidental to quality tissue stretch.

It’s best to think of your enlargement training as something more akin to flexibility training than resistance training. Working up to 15 lbs of weight is only good if it’s a byproduct of growth, meaning the routine you performed yielded gains so you added more weight.

Did you make gains earlier in your routine?

Q2. I did make some gains…

and the workouts were more enjoyable. I’m also sore after each workout. This is probably not a good sign?

Al: This is not a good sign! You shouldn’t be feeling anything more than a mild soreness which dissipates in 24 hours or less.

You’d be well advised to go back to a lighter weight and do your best to focus on what you’re feeling with your hanging. Taking mental focus out of the equation with passive forms of training like hanging is easy, so really doing what you can to ensure quality maximum tissue stretch each session without pain or strain should be the goal.

You’ll know you’re on the right track when your penis appears elongated without being exhausted after your sessions, and (of course) by observing growth- which should be noted once every two weeks when you measure.

Your gains will also be greatly accelerated if you’re improving EQ as well.

Side to Sides & Stop and Starts: Ask The Experts

Big Al, of MaleEnhancementCoach.com, answers questions about Erect Kegel pauses, rest in the stretched state & tool use.

If you have questions you’d like answered in an Ask the Experts article, please PM Big Al.

Q. I’m interested in testing out the Side to Sides stretch for length.

All I’ve done before is high rep jelqing. Can I start with high reps for the Side to Sides? How long can I use them for?

Al: It would be good to test out 100 reps of the Side to Sides in your initial session. If you’re starting with any new exercise, start on the low end of the rep plan. You can always adjust upwards with your reps.  A good rule of thumb is to add anywhere between 5-10 percent volume per session for this exercise- at least until you get to 500 reps or more- then stay at ~5% per session.

The Side to Sides usually work well for 1-2 cycles. From there, more intense movements are needed to bust the almost inevitable plateau. That being said, we can keep using it for as long as you see fit to.

Q. I have sex one to days a week with my girlfriend.

The sex is quite good already but how can I get better at it and grow in confidence? I’m especially vulnerable to ejaculating too soon when I penetrate although I can get it up later.

Al: The best way to improve is to practice. Get more time and confidence with penetration, and you’ll develop mastery.

Something which can offer more immediate help is to ejaculate/orgasm LIGHTLY early in your encounter. This will mean stopping or pulling out during the act. The harder your orgasm the longer your refractory period, and the reverse is also true.

Practicing the manual Stop and Starts is your best alternative to live sexual contact if you need more training.

Anti-Turtling: Ask The Experts

Anti-Turtling: Ask The Experts

Big Al, of MaleEnhancementCoach.com, answers questions about anti-turtling.

If you have questions you’d like answered in an Ask the Experts article, please PM Big Al.

Q. Good morning brother! Just wanted to get your opinion on an anti-turtle sleeve…

…as a way of keeping the penis from turtling during the day (especially during activities that would activate the flight or flight response like the gym). Would it help heal from the exercises in an elongated state?

Thank you so much brother!

Al: You’re most welcome!

The healing in the elongated state theory may have some merit, but I’ve found it doesn’t work well when you’re training using higher intensity methods AND challenging yourself each session with them. What most often happens is applying a sleeve like this usually induces overtraining.

The sleeve does work well in instances where one is:

· Using lower intensity methods of training (e.g.- extending)

· Training under capacity with the main routine

· Used intermittently to prevent turtling

· As a stand alone

Q. I’m looking at ways to minimize turtling.

While I looked at the Biker’s Passive Stretcher, I wanted to try something different so I don’t cause any constriction. What do you thing of sleeves?

Al: Much will depend on the cause and extent of your turtling.

The BPS is light, and the band should not be constricting. The alternative is to use a sleeve type device- e.g.: DuroSleev SiliSleev – Durable Silicone Penis Sleeve. Another alternative is to perform exercises like JAI Stretches or even Leg Tuck Pulls– in moderation and as needed.

Curvatures; Stretching Angles: Ask The Experts

Curvatures; Stretching Angles: Ask The Experts

Big Al, of MaleEnhancementCoach.com, answers questions about curvatures and stretching angles.

If you have questions you’d like answered in an Ask the Experts article, please PM Big Al.

Q. I have a slight curve in my penis which bends to the right.

I’m right-handed, if that matters. The curve isn’t due to Peyronie’s nor does it bother me much, but I want to straighten it out anyway. What method do you recommend to accomplish this goal?

Al: The type of curvature you describe was once colloquially termed a “hand made dick”. This is due to masturbation AKA “handling”- usually with the dominant hand. Performed vigorously and often enough, tissues will tend to get stretched on the opposite side- leading to this condition. The least invasive way to counter this issue would be to use the opposite hand for the majority of your work (in this case, your left hand), and make a concerted effort to pull towards the left. If this fails to yield satisfactory results after some weeks, more concerted means of correcting the curve should be looked into- like Erect Bends.

 

Q. When doing my stretches, I perform them seated and point my penis towards the floor.

I’ve also been experimenting with adjusting the angles of stretch in this position. What angles do you suggest for getting the most out mo my stretches?

Al: You can stretch at most any angle to better target specific aspects of the penis. An example: some stretch straight up as they feel this pulls more of the “inner penis” out by its root. If you’re looking to better target the suspensory ligament, leaning back slightly will give you a more intense stretch. Some prefer to stretch pulling towards the rear- in a “between the cheeks” (BTC) manner.  An extreme version of this is the LAS (Lazy Ass Stretch)- where you actually sit on your penis [The difference between BTC ands LAS Stretches].

It’s recommended you reduce the amount of reps and force when testing out new angles. Really focus on the FEEL of the stretch to determine where it’s having the most impact.

You’ll need to test out the various possibilities to see what works best for your goals.
