Hi everyone! I figured I'd start a log to document my progress. I'm not new to the world of PE but I had a 7 month lay off where I lost most the gains I had previously acquired. One thing I learned from past experience is having patience. In the beginning I was always in a rush to get out of the newbie routines and start adding more advanced exercises. I truly feel that I spent the majority of my time investment in the overtraining side of PE. Also, I didn't put much stock into rest days.
This time around is different. Being that I'm not new to PE I have a new perspective. I'm going to start out slow and go from there. I would rather err on the side of caution and not cross that threshold of overtraining so I'm not wasting my time and effort.
My current measurements are:
BPFSL - 7.0"
NBPEL - 6.0"
BPEL - 6.25"
MSEG - 4.75"
BEG - 4.85"
My goals are:
NBPEL - 7.0"
EG - 5.5"
Ultimately I'd like to reach 8" x 6" but I'd rather set more reasonable goals initially then once I hit them I can decide if I want to push for 8"x6".
I was initially considering JP's 90 day newbie routine but I have opted for PESG's routine being that it's not quite as intense initially and I like edging after jelqing. I truly think edging allows you to fill out that newly expanded tissue from jelqs to help translate into permanent gains faster.
10-15 minute warmup with rice sock
10 minutes stretching (JP90 stretching routine)
10 minutes wet jelqs with a light overhand grip (slow 5 second reps, sometimes mixing in a few minutes of v-jelqs)
20-60 minutes edging (only blowing my load every third workout)
Frequency: 2 on 1 off, 2 on 2 off, (Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri) I work 16 hour shifts on saturday and sunday making it difficult to follow a strict 2 on 1 off.
I'm still not sure how often I should measure. Should I measure monthly or every 3 months? I started this routine last Monday so this is week 2. Thanks for reading everyone and gl with your PE journey!
