Q. In your 3×20 routine you mention doing Kegels during the breaks in between sets.

What’s the advantage of this over doing them after the hanging?

Al: The Kegels in between sets are meant to act as an antagonist to the stretching- creating a “push/pull” effect*. There’s also the efficiency factor. It’s recommended you take a break in between hanging sets to restore full circulation, so if you can that and take care of other aspects of your training, you save time.

Q. What is the purpose for starting a workout using Emotional Visualizations?

Al: The Emotional Visualizations serve the purpose of dispelling emotions inappropriate to the scenario (e.g.- anxiety, apathy, etc.) and replacing them with, at the very least, a feeling of neutrality. Optimally, you should be inducing a feeling of confidence and relaxed joy to effect the best response. This will allow you to set the tone to extract much more out of the sensations you’re experiencing- which leads to a better kinesthetic sense during training. As you get better as inducing the desired emotions, you’ll learn to transcend limitations placed by your own [initial] mental reservations.

Q. Up until now I haven’t been doing any sort of stamina exercise…

[Editor’s Note: This refers to Kegels and edging and may also include outside activities like cardiovascular training], and I think this could be why I’m not making gains. Getting erections is easy for me but maintaining them past a few minutes is hard. What should I do?

Al: It can’t be stressed enough that- for as long as you’re pursuing enlargement- you should be attempting to get your Erection Quality (EQ) as high as you can get it. This rule applies even if your sexual prowess is satisfactory. Few factors are more important for inducing maximum tissue stretch and recovery than high EQ.

This doesn’t even cover the other benefits of stamina work- which include greater penis strength and health, as well as ejaculatory control. One can even develop the ability to become multiorgasmic, as discussed in the Master Your Orgasms exercise.

In your case, including Kegels and Stop and Starts immediately after your enlargement work should work well. You should also take care to do what you can outside of male enhancement training to induce better EQ, and nothing beats cardiovascular exercise for this purpose.

Q: What is EQ and how do I measure it?

Al: Erection Quality is a combined measure of stamina AND hardness.
A 0 would be complete impotence whereas a 10 would be YOUR ideal standard of stamina and hardness. You can use whatever standard you like to gauge EQ: workout performance, sexual activity, or even an average of it all- as long as it’s consistent.

A 7 is typically considered just hard enough for penetration, but still flexible.

Q. How come I’m really struggling with the idea of trusting emotional visualization to get erect.

Doing the exercises isn’t an issue for me but how I get erect direct is and I’m concerned about that.

Al: The above is the very reason you should practice Emotional Visualizations. Your struggling and concern are the items sought to be mastered with the exercise. The EV is where you learn to let go of struggles and concerns. Doing this during training will help you to develop a foundation which transfers over to sexual confidence and performance. Practiced individually and widely, it can also help to place sex into its proper context into people’s lives.

It may sound as if I’m overblowing the effects of the EV, but the benefits from and skills learned from that exercise will be of immense value to you!

Q. Thank you for recommending the kegels! I am noticing a difference in hardness and waking up at night with hard ons after one week.

You recommended starting off with 5 reps, but I felt I could do more, so I am adding 5 every day. I am up to 15 reps but it’s getting harder to do them now! What do you recommend that I do now with the reps?

Al: For the kegels- or any other exercise- you need to take care not to force your limits just yet! The reasoning behind this involves training momentum. If you pace your progress, you’ll be able to train for MUCH longer in a progressive manner. If you force a peak in your training too soon you’ll burn out very quickly (no training momentum).

The Kegels usually doesn’t lend itself to very rapid rep increases from an established baseline. I’d recommend you back off to ~10 reps or so and resume adding one rep per session. When you get to 20 resp total, add 2 reps per session.

Various Kegel Types and Stop and Starts: Ask The Experts

Various Kegel Types and Stop and Starts: Ask The Experts

Big Al, of MaleEnhancementCoach.com, answers questions about various Kegels and Stop and Starts.

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

Q. Why is it recommended to do only 3 stops in the Stop and Starts edging exercise?

And why only 20 to 25 minutes max? Why not, say, an hour?

Al: There are scenarios where one can use 4-10 stops or more- such as with the Extreme Stop and Starts. Essentially, when one isn’t able to last past the 5 minute mark, then more stops can be taken to get to the 5-10 minute mark. Once one get to ~10 minutes with, say, 10 stops, no more time is added but the stops are reduced.

There’s a reasoning behind the 20-25 minute threshold. Once one reaches this point, a level of proficiency is usually achieved which makes it much easier to maintain activity even beyond this point- whereas when one isn’t capable of maintaining some sort of erection under activity for up to 20 minutes, proficiency is comparatively diminished.

Some very advanced trainees do opt to go for up to an hour with the Stop and Starts. This particular version of the exercise becomes an all-inclusive exercise- with light jelqs, pulls, and Kegels all done under a very high erection level. The issue with this is overconditioning- where training creates a scenario where it take a lot of stimulation and time to ejaculate. By keeping an average of 20-25 minutes at 3 stops to the PONR, one gets the best of both world- control, but the option of ejaculating early on command.

All of this assumes you’re not regularly sexually active. If you are, then abide by the “60 Minute Rule”- which states: “For stamina training, a good rule of thumb is the 60 minute rule. If your sexual activity has you engaged in vigorous movements WITH a full erection for a total of 60 minutes or more per week, you can forgo the Stop and Start. For any time less than that, you should make it up in your training.”

Q. Before getting on these forums I though there was only one type of Kegel exercise.

Now I read about more than one, and some are not even flexing exercises! Is there a reference you can give me for them?

Al: It can be confusing when there are so many different variants of an exercise. The following should be a helpful reference: Minuteman’s Kegel Master List

EQ and Male Enhancement: Ask The Experts

Big Al, of MaleEnhancementCoach.com, answers questions about EQ and Male Enhancement.

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

Q. Why do you stress EQ so much in your training philosophy?

What if my stamina is already good? Can I do away with performing the recommended stamina exercises?

Al: EQ or Erection Quality is a combined measure of stamina and hardness. This stat measures the literal life blood of the penis. It’s a useful stat for checking many aspects of male enhancement development in addition to mere stamina and hardness- like conditioning, mind state (when taken in conjunction with other stats) and whether or not a training break is recommended.

You can have great EQ, but if you’re looking to maximize your size gains then you’ll need to do what you can to get your EQ as high as possible. This is even if your EQ is more than satisfactory for sexual performance. While some correlate EQ as being a factor in “newbie” gains (which it undoubtedly is), it needs to be understood the EQ is also a huge factor in achieving advanced trainee gains as well- see: Types of Gains in Penis Enlargement.

Maintaining high EQ is also important for maintaining size gains after you’ve achieved your enlargement goals.

Q. What can I do to get my EQ as high as possible?

Al: If you’re new to male enhancement training, then exercises like Kegels and edging/Stop and Starts will be very helpful. You should also take care to do what you can outside of male enhancement to maximize your EQ gains- namely: performing regular, intensive cardiovascular exercise, maintaining a heart healthy lifestyle, and taking care to do something to encourage positive emotional health.

For advanced stamina training, exercises like Towel Raises, Super Kegels, and the “Master Your Orgasms” exercise will be useful.

The Viking’s Kegel/Squeeze

Viking’s Kegel/Squeeze

This particular advanced girth movement combined the Kegel exercise for maximum penis expansion and training efficiency.

Instructions

Step 1: Encircle your 3/4 erect penis at its base with your thumb and forefinger against the pubic bone, (this puts the little finger facing the glans) and just before you squeeze, Kegel strongly and force more blood into the penis.

Take care to work up to the force needed for this kegel!

Step 2: Squeeze and hold for 7 to 10 seconds and relax for 30 seconds.

Step 3: This cycle is repeated for 5 to 10 minutes every other day, 3-4 times a week.

The “Kegel/squeeze” helps three ways:

1. It pumps more blood into the penis.

2. It keeps the part of the penis BELOW your grip engorged, under pressure, built up.

3. It exercises your PC muscle.

The Towel Raise

The Towel Raise

The Towel Raise is a great exercise for developing penile strength and rock hard erections. It’s essentially a weighted kegel, so don’t perform this movement until you’ve fully mastered the kegel.

With an erection, place a towel over the end of your penis. Try to lift your towel-covered penis by squeezing the PC muscle (as in kegels.) Start with 20 reps and work up to 100 reps 5 times a week.

As time goes by, you can add weight by using larger towels, or even by wetting the towel.

An advanced technique for Towel Raises would be to hold the towel in the up position for 10 to 20 seconds at a time. You should attempt to work up to 5 to 10 of these sustained repetitions.

Stamina Training & Sexual Performance: Ask The Experts

Big Al, of MaleEnhancementCoach.com, answers questions about Stamina Training & Sexual Performance.

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

Q.  Big Al, I have a few questions concerning my stamina workout and sexual performance…

1) This one doesn’t matter if it’s with a woman. I read that I should masturbate up to couple of seconds before ejaculating. Is that how it should be done or when I feel that the end is about to come – my pelvic floor starts tensing and I know that I’ve lost control over it – when should I stop, first or second ?

2) Are there some positions that you suggest since I need to have full control over the motions?

3) And I understood that I shouldn’t do the stop and starts if I have sex more than three times a week?

4) Since in the past I managed easily to get erection after finishing once or just maintaining it , is it bad to cum 3 to 4 times per evening when with a partner ?

5) And when cumming 3 or 4 times do you suggest doing the Stop and Start each time or just the first time ?

Big Al: Thanks for your questions! I’ve answered them in the order they were received:

1) Performing the techniques of the Stop and Starts during sexual activity is a superior practice to the manual version, but also more difficult to control. You’ll need to experiment with learning how you feel when you’re building up to ejaculation. If your pelvic floor begins to flutter this is a good sign you’re getting close. Slowing/stopping at this time should allow you to hold off ejaculation/orgasm. Learning when to stop and the timing in which you Kegel in reference to approaching the PONR is going to take practice.

2) Missionary position allows you maximum control, and when performed correctly is often the preferred position for giving a woman orgasms.

3) You should limit the MANUAL Stop and Starts as per the “60 Minute Rule” outlined in the Stamina Exercises section. You can have as much sexual contact as you can handle, but please be aware that sex can be considered a form of training. If you’re engaging in a lot of sex (several hours a day, multiple days per week) this will cut into your recovery. You may need to take extra days off between your enlargement sessions to account for this. Compound this with other types of training and you can see how you’ll need to optimize your recovery if you wish to be able to handle it all.

4) If you can recover enough to engage in 3 to 4 bouts of sexual activity per evening then more power to you 🙂

5) Practicing during live sexual activity is different from manual training. I don’t want to place any positive limitations on you (which includes the number of “stops”), but you should ensure you’re attempting to increase your time each session.

Stamina Training Specifics, Similarities With Male Enhancement & Bodybuilding: Ask The Experts

Big Al, of MaleEnhancementCoach.com, answers questions about Stamina Training specifics and similarities with male enhancement & bodybuilding.

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

Q. In the instructions for Stamina Training it’s advised to ejaculate at the end of the Stop and Starts…

…but what if I want to get the benefits of not ejaculating? Can I train the Stop and Starts without ejaculating?

Big Al: If you’re training for sexual proficiency, then SOME regular ejaculations are required. There certainly is a risk of ejaculating too frequently, but ejaculating infrequently can create a “use it or lose it” scenario.

I am aware of the Chinese study that shows a spike in testosterone levels after 7 days of abstinence, then a DROP. If you read through the study, you’ll note where it states: “No regular fluctuation was observed following continuous abstinence after the peak.” It should also be noted that additional testosterone in your bloodstream will not increase your penis size if you are a healthy adult.

The takeaway from this is you should find the level of ejaculatiory frequency that’s right for you- enough to preserve your libido and allow for increased functioning, but not so much you deplete your libido and energy. The general recommendation is to ejaculate 3-4 times a week, so you can work from this point to determine the optimal frequency for you.

Q. I’ve been having some troubles with my routine – First and the main is that my erection isn’t good at all …

It might and probably is due to my sleep and hard training at the gym …

I’m sleeping ok , 8+ hours every night but around 5pm. I’m super tired and I get it that I should take a nap -will do it from tomorrow …

Stop and Start time dropped – first two stops are 2 minutes top and then the last one I somehow manage to do 7+ minutes and when it gets really close to ponr I remember to breathe …

Anyway , I’ve decided to take a break from todays and next two routines just to rest the penis a little bit …

And yes , I wanted to ask you about doing stop and starts with a woman –

1) This one doesn’t matter if it’s with a woman …

I read that I should masturbate up to couple of seconds before ejaculating …

Is that how it should be done or when I feel that the end is about to come – my pelvic floor starts tensing and I know that I’ve lost control over it – when should I stop , first or second ?

2) Are there some positions that you suggest since I need to have full control over the motions ?

3) And I understood that I shouldn’t do the Stop and Starts if I have sex more than three times a week ?

4) Since in the past I managed easily to get erection after finishing once or just maintaining it , is it bad to cum 3,4 times per evening when with a partner ?

5) And when coming 3 or 4 times, do you suggest doing the Stop and Start each time or just the first time ?

Big Al: Given the totality of your circumstances, you may not be allowing enough recovery for progress. A few days off would be a good idea, and when you resume, let’s stick with Stamina Only (Kegels and Stop and Starts) for awhile until you feel conditioned enough to transition to a full routine.

To answer your questions:

1) Performing the techniques of the Stop and Starts during sexual activity is a superior practice to the manual version, but also more difficult to control. You’ll need to experiment with learning how you feel when you’re building up to ejaculation. If your pelvic floor begins to flutter this is a good sign you’re getting close. Slowing/stopping at this time should allow you to hold off ejaculation/orgasm. Learning when to stop and the timing in which you kegel in reference to approaching the PONR is going to take practice.

2) Missionary position allows you maximum control, and when performed correctly is often the preferred position for giving a woman orgasms.

3) You should limit the MANUAL Stop and Starts as per the “60 Minute Rule” outlined in the Stamina Exercises section. You can have as much sexual contact as you can handle, but please be aware that sex can be considered a form of training. If you’re engaging in a lot of sex (several hours a day, multiple days per week) this will cut into your recovery. Yo umay need to take extra days off between your enlargement sessions to account for this. Compound this with other types of trainign and you can see how you’ll need to optimize your recovery if you wish to be able to handle it all.

4) If you can recover enough to engage in 3 to 4 bouts of sexual activity per evening then more power to you 🙂

5) Practicing during live sexual activity is different from manual training. I don’t want to place any positive limitations on you (which includes the number of “stops”), but you should ensure you’re attempting to increase your time each session.

Q. I like the way you’re so methodical about training!

As a bodybuilder, I can relate to a lot of the principles you outline in your courses. Would you say that having experience with bodybuilding can be helpful to penis training?

Big Al: There are some similarities (and some important differences) with weight training and male enhancement training. Male enhancement does rely on progressive training principles to force progress, but the feel of the movements and the resultant level of tissue stretch is far more important than reps or intensity. Also- with the exception of Kegel-type exercises- male enhancement exercises are passive in nature. The concept is similar to PNF style stretching for bodybuilding.
