Thread: turtling or EQ?!
- 04-07-2010 #1
I was wondering whats a better sign for determining if you are overtraining, EQ or turtling. Because you can turtle for many different reasons. I turtle a little bit but my EQ is great. I can easily get a rock hard erection. Any thoughts?

Turtling is not an indicator of overtraining, that I know of at least.
Poor EQ however IS a major indicator of overtraining.
Your doing fine, keep on with your routine!

Sweet I was actually going to make a thread with this exact same question... I turtle a lot after a workout.

What about turtling when your at the gym ? When i do squats or deadlifts etc i find my penis shrinks due to the blood going round to the muscles, is that not a bad thing.

You are fine Jason, if you are really worried about it, get a "What-A-Grip" in the Tennis section at Wal-Mart. They are under $3.
I am on my second one, and Dustpan has worn a what-a-grip everyday for years now. It DEFINITELY keeps you from turtling.
Now, I think millia was on a thread last night that was talking about an interesting new concept for me. Basically it was saying that when we turtle, we are buidling up scar tissue and when we get an erection we are replenishing good rich oxygenated healing blood and it breaks up that scar tissue. The thread poster of this info (it might have been some research millia did, not sure though) said that this process keeps repeating itself over the lifetime duration, etc. I don't know if I really buy it all, but...
That said, I did find it an interesting thought that if this were true, that by doing something like wearing the what-a-grip like I mentioned earlier, or using traction wrapping throughout the day, whatever, to keep you from turtling, that when this alleged "scar tissue" then tries to build up (because you are not "erect") that by keeping your dick from being completely turtled by the WAG or traction wrapping, that this changes, over time, your dicks flaccid state to a bigger one, and may also help with your penis's recovery, ergo,...making also EL gains as well.
I still don't know what I think, but I do like my WAG (what-a-grip) for the anti-turtling effects it provides me even if I poke my glans back down into my shaft and use the thing as a foreskin retainer to keep my glans moist and shiny, like a real uncut dick.

Its a good thing, traction wrapping, at least I think. But Jason man, I would really try the what-a-grip brother. I love it and its all one piece, goes on easy, once you get it rolled up like a rubber before you put it on (in a donut) then you just stretch it out and wiggle down to the bottom of your shaft, then roll it down your shaft (like the opposite direction of putting on a rubber, but the same concept).
Let us know what you choose and how you like it!

Il keep my mind open,we dont have a Wal-Mart where we live but im sure you can get them in plenty of other places.

Yeah man, anywhere they sell tennis products should have a what-a-grip. Just tell the clerk its for your (heh-hum) "Tennis Racket" heehee!
