Seven Deadly Sins of Penis Exercising

“The biggest sin is sitting on your ass.” – Rose Kennedy


Many men obsess over the right way to go about penis enhancement.  While there’s a lot to learn about any new fitness regimen, nearly any problem will be overcome in time if you keep an open mind, train faithfully, and don’t give up.  That said, here are a few pitfalls to avoid.

These “7 Penis Exercising Sins” are more wrong turns or mental roadblocks than anything else, but by keeping these guidelines in mind, you’ll have the framework for mental and physical growth in place before you even take your first measurement.  Even if you’ve been exercising your penis for a while, you’ll want to take the time to analyze your methods and make sure you haven’t picked up any bad habits it’s time to break.

Here we go:

1. Don’t be afraid to start, and don’t give up

Procrastination and lack of dedication can keep even those with the best potential from accomplishing anything.  It’s tragic, and the truth of the matter is, you are only cheating yourself when you get lazy.  The most important thing you can do for your penis enlargement goal is to start working towards it, and then keep going.

Whether your distraction of choice is boozing, partying, X-box, drugs or even just being a work-a-holic, staying out of the penis enlargement game for a few weeks, let alone a few months, is going to ruin your motivation and your chance at a bigger penis. Odds are you won’t even get motivated enough to read these articles again.  Instead, get started towards your goals — now!

2. Don’t set unrealistic goals

Guys watch a lot of porn, and male adult actors are extremely well-endowed. And believe me, they are all above average. It’s supposed to be that way — it’s showbiz, and nobody likes mediocre in showbiz!  When setting your own penis exercising goals, though, don’t compare yourself to these actors.  Your routine is about your growth and maximizing what you have, not feeling like you’ve failed because you can’t live up to a fantasy.

As a beginner, it’s important not to rush into advanced exercises before your body is ready. You will know you are ready when you see results and achieve your short-term goals.  If you advance your routine too quickly you are risking injury at worst, and a sense of disappointed failure at best. Penis growth takes time.

3. Don’t undermine your routine with an unhealthy lifestyle

Support your penis exercise routine, and don’t undermine your sexual health with other negative influences in your life.  Start taking better care of your body. Reduce (or, even better, give up!) smoking, drinking or doing drugs. Adopt a healthy, well-balanced diet, eat every day at the same hours, and create a regular sleeping schedule. (Include naps, if you can!)

Hit the gym a couple of times a week. While you don’t necessarily have to start bodybuilding, maintain your body in good physical shape.  A strong, healthy body and a committed mind will go far in supporting your male enhancement goals.

4. Don’t be superficial in your commitment

Don’t blow off or constantly reschedule your workouts. Treat your penis exercises as a ritual. Try to carve out a regular time and place, and take a few moments to put yourself in a motivated frame of mind before you begin.

If you see penis workouts as annoyances that can be blown off, you’ll never reach your goals.  On the other hand, if the process is an important ritual for you, success is only a matter of time.

5. Never exercise without being properly heated up

“Don’t just warm up. Start heating up.”

As one of our fellow PE Gym members outlined, we heat up before exercising to increase blood flow and help break down collagen (the substance that holds the cells together). Heating up first makes stretching easier, prevents injury, and maximizes gains.

As a beginner, heating up is even more important. Beginners haven’t yet learned their limits or how to avoid over-training, so being as prepared as possible for workouts is essential.

6. Don’t over-train, and don’t ignore pain

It seems to happen most often near the beginning of a penile exercise program. Even if you’re doing fairly low-intensity workouts, it is still possible to over-train, especially if you masturbate or edge a lot in general.  How will you know if you’re overtraining?  Pay attention to your body’s signs and it will tell you.

Pain is a good indicator that your body has reached its limits and continuing will bring injury. Blisters, strained ligaments, thromboses veins and accumulations of fluid under the tissue are not good signs under any circumstances! Similarly, if you experience turtling after your penis exercise routine, or if you have problems maintaining an erection or urinating, you are over-training. Revise your routine.

And remember to stick to only one routine at a time. If you’re not sure which one to use at first, go with JP’s 90 day beginner routine.

7. Don’t get obsessed with checking for results

One common newbie mistake is daily penis measuring. I recommend measuring yourself no more than once a week. Do it too often and you will get demotivated. Gains don’t happen overnight!  In the long term, though, if you are working out faithfully and following good routines, you will get what you give.

Advanced penile exercise practitioners make mistakes, too. Many men stop making gains because they fall prey to the “more is better” way of thinking. They’ll say to themselves: “Hey, I did 50 reps of ‘the squeeze,’ and my penis is pumped a whole 1/2 inch bigger than ever! If it only took 50 reps to add that 1/2 inch, then with 100 reps, I should be able to add a whole inch!” It’s these guys that you see complaining on the forums about severe bruising and swelling.

Be patient, but do keep a log of your routines, measurements, and goals. Write everything down: hand positions, lubes used, length of hot soaks, etc. By keeping accurate logs, you’ll be able to see what’s working and what isn’t, and you’ll be able to track your progress with more precision.


You’ll notice that throughout this article we discussed not just the wrong way to go about exercising your penis, but also the right way: the penis exercise virtues you will need to succeed.  In a nutshell, they are as follows:

  • Motivation
  • Realistic goals
  • Maintaining a healthy lifestyle
  • Steadfast commitment
  • Good warmups
  • Steady, sensible training with a good routine
  • Patience, careful logs and adjustments, and more patience!

“Gain 3 inches in 6 months!” is blatant advertising. It took me 2 years to gain my first full inch. It might take you less, it might take you more — just follow these guidelines and trust that you’ll get there at your own pace. Don’t let your long-term success and your penis health depend on instant results.

Listen to what people have to say about their experiences in our penis forums, and then do what works safely for you. Along the way, don’t get hung up on your own mistakes.  Instead, take what you can from failure – experience. You will learn more from experience than can ever be taught from a book.

  1. Love the article every time I read it. I had read (a little dejectedly) that my LOT dictates that my gains will be slow. That being the case, consistency and constancy will be my key ingredients for success. I have seen gains, and I have regressed at times, but I keep coming back here for information instead of giving up. Every time I see gains, I get renewed motivation. Thanks for helping me realize penis size does not always (if ever) come in a pill. It takes work, and I’m workin’ it!

    Don’t spank your monkey, train it to dance!

  2. I think you’ve hit the nail on the head with this. A lot, if not most of the problems new guys have are summed up in your ‘deadly sins’ of PE. I think consistency is something we all fight for. Increasing penis size substantially takes months, even years, and newer guys sometimes don’t realize this.

    Thanks for a great article.

  3. Most guys have done these things . I have . This should be on the required reading list for newbies . It would save a lot of time spent
    healing and not PEing .
    Good article Veg .
