  • Should i decrease the reps?

    After 2 months of no growth (from doing slow jelq reps), i went back to JP's routine for jelqing faster (2-3 secs).

    At the same time, because i was already conditioned with 6+ months of PE, i decided it was probably best for me to increase the reps at a steady pace each workout.

    -------------
    At the beginning of the switch back to JP, i did 200 strokes (1.5-2 secs ea). I increased the strokes by about 5-10 each time i worked out and now im at a total of about 340 strokes (still 1.5-2 secs ea). The first month i saw an immediate spike of .25" BPEL. I was VERY VERY happy after not seeing gains for a while. I think i attribute that to the increasing amounts of jelqing. But now is the second month of this "quick progressive routine", and im not seeing any gains (and i want gains ). Also at the begining of this second month i switched from warmdowns to cooldowns.

    1) Should i start decreasing the strokes?
    2) Is me switching to cooldowns the problem?
    2) If its not 1 and 2, then what was it?
    ------------

    My routine right now is as follows:

    Warmup 5 mins
    Basic stretching/a stretching 7-10 minutes
    Warmup again 5 mins
    OK Jelqs 345 strokes (1.5-2 secs ea) takes about 10-11 mins.
    Cooldown 2 mins


    Help me please, i want to start seeing gains again.

    Thanks

    Your impatient, thats the problem everything else is fine. Plateaus are a common issue with PE. Perhaps a break from PE for a few weeks is in order.

      I cant help being impatient . Once i see gains i get really excited.

      So you think i SHOULD keep on increasing my reps by 10 each workout like i have been doing?
