When performing male enhancement training, it’s important that a few things be kept in mind. First, this type of training isn’t like most forms of physical training. Your ability to perform more difficult workouts will NOT necessarily produce growth, though your penis will become stronger for it. Growth and strength are two different things in this case.
Second, it’s not enough that you get adequate rest. There should be enough room in your recuperation to allow for recovery AND growth.
Third, one of the best ways of ensuring that you maximize your growth potential is to maximize your EQ. It’s been my observation that trainees with high EQ or who develop high EQ during the course of their training career usually exhibit the best gains.
Ensuring You’re Getting Enough Recovery
A good rule of thumb for this type of training is you should, at the most, feel only a slight soreness the day after training. If the soreness is more than mild and/or if you’re sore for more than 24 hours after training*, then that’s a good sign you’re overdoing things.
Soreness isn’t always the only sign of overwork, either. If you have to perform your high intensity training at a rate of high volume just to feel it working, then that might be a sign you’d benefit from lower intenisty/higher volume training – like light, slow jelqs, extender work, or prolonged hanging.
*The exception is if you’re performing a “Shocking Routine” or if you’re at the tail end of a training cycle.
Another thing that you have to be aware of is the Kegel exercise in your training. Whether the Kegels are performed too frequently, with too much force, or as an ill-advised recommendation for countering pelvic floor problems. It appears Kegels have surpassed the jelq as the most abused and often misunderstood of all of the male enhancement exercises.
When first performing the kegel, use just enough contractile force to accomplish the rep. Once you get proficient say, able to perform 50 reps of the exercise (with an erection), you can move on to more intense variants.
The Kegel engages the pubococcygeus (PC) muscle intensely. This muscle is relatively small and used for a variety of daily finctions. Overtraining this muscle can cause serios side effects, and because it’s so often used, it can be very difficult to allow for full recovery of it.
Another thing about the Kegel is that it can cause toughening of the tissues surrounding the base of the penis as well as the penis itself to some degree. Except at perhaps the very extreme ends, strength and flexibility are not mutually exclusive. One can have a high degree of both. Performing both of these exercises in one session actually allows for maximum synergy, so the results are better than if they were performed separately on their own. That’s why it’s vital that you balance your Kegels out with an adequate stretching regimen so both strength and flexibility are maximized.
Unless you have schedule conflicts or are performing isolated routines, it’s best if you perform all of your training in one sesison. A well designed will integrate the exercises in a specific way that’ll ensure that you’re getting maximum synergy [there’s that word again :)] from your training.
The Risks of Training
Male enhancement training isn’t without its risks. To expand on the last article’s recommendations, it’s recommended that you consuult with your physician before taking up any form of physical training. When you’re making initial assessments it’s important that you err on the side of caution. When starting, if you’re concerned about the possibility of injury then you can begin by using LESS force than you would for masturbation with your exercises. While that might seem unproductive, you can always increase your intensity in subsequent sessions. Overdo things and you’ll be delayed from training due to soreness or even injury.
You also need to give training more than one try if you don’t feel a specific routine working for you. There are so many different routines out there that there’s really no excuse for training boredom. That in itself could be part of the problem, though learning just which routine to begin. If you need specific iguidance for your traning and/or you’re looking to cut the learning curve, consider hiring out a coach for your endeavors – like meCoach.
