Advanced Training Questions: Ask The Experts

Big Al, of, answers Advanced Training Questions related to the jelq and fitness.

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

Q. What’s the importance behind the instructions to time jelqs once you get past 300 reps?

Al: The reasoning behind this is to see how efficient your jelq sessions are. For example, if you’re performing 300 reps of the jelq, and you’re aiming for 2-3 seconds per rep, your jelq net time should be close to 600-900 seconds (10-15 minutes). It’s understood there’s going to be the need for pauses- either for erection refreshing. relubing, etc. You’ll want to do your best to ensure these pauses don’t take up more than 20% of your total gross time. If you can get it down to 10% of your total time, this will be even better. If you’re not taking too many breaks but your time is off, then the issue is with your jelq speed.

Timing longer jelq sessions will ensure you can account for all of the above factors.

Q. All of the gyms have closed down for months where I live, so as a result I’ve gotten very out of shape…

I still do kegels and edging, but my EQ is now horrible and I’ve gained more than 15 kilos in less than a year! Do you have any advice for me?

Al: If your regular fitness regimen has been exclusively gym training- and if there aren’t any available- you’re going to have to change how you train (or at least your location of training). Even if you only have floor space for minimal activities, you can do plenty. Push ups, sit ups, jumping jacks, burpees, and the like. If you can set up a home gym then this would be optimal. Start small- a mat, a chinning bar which can go over your doorway, perhaps an adjustable barbell and dumbbell set, and even a bench- you can complete a full array of even high intensity training with a home set up.

Unless you’re unable to, you should partake in walking, running, bicycling, or whatever your preference to get in your cardio. The aforementioned jumping jacks and burpees are all great for getting the heart rate up.

Most important of all is the mindset. Challenging times call for ingenuity and persistence. Thinking just a bit outside of the box as regard your fitness alternatives may very well open up a whole new and fun world of training options!

If you’re at home or in one location for long periods of time, be sure to keep any unhealthy food away so you’re not tempted to eat unhealthy things. Setting an eating schedule for yourself can be helpful, if needed.
