Q. I have not tested out the Tension Stretch yet but I will. I will start off with moderate force but I have a question…
…Is there decent risk of injury if I end up pulling too hard? Or is the tension required to hurt myself more than I can handle? Because sometimes I get into the moment and want the best gains possible so I pull pretty hard. I hope this is not too dangerous (during my Side to Side stretches).
Big Al: One can hurt themselves if they use too much force. This is why it’s recommended to ALWAYS start any new exercise using a low enough amount of force so the form of the exercise is mastered before adding any volume or intensity (see: Before starting any male enhancement routine- please read!) Make sure you warm up properly and do not put volume and intensity over form and feel. This should ensure you should do well at avoiding injuries.
I feel that it is adequate enough. I just really like the stretching so I wanted to see if you thought it would be ok to add another exercise. I’ll just add more reps to my Tension Stretch. I’ll probably increase reps by 5 each time until I feel I’ve done enough.
Big Al: You may want to experiment with longer hold times for your Tension Stretch if you feel you need an added challenge. See what a 30 vs 20 second hold feels like. If you do experiment with longer rep times, you’ll need to cut your total reps accordingly. An alternative is to use LESS time and more force, but this is trickier as well as more risky.
