Thread: Why not a cool down?

Well i was thinking about it today after i finished my routine(Penis is hanging nice and low after only two days of this heavy stretching/jelq routine) and well obviously you do your warm up, but instead of a warm down can't you do a cool down?
In many sports, football(soccer) for example, many players after a game go for a cold bath, i mean ice cold, which is said to help heal the muscles quicker, well i know the penis is a muscle so why would this not work in the same way it does for footballers, helping the penis to heal quicker so it's better conditioned for the routine the following day?
so in theory would this work? i know we strive to stop our penis shrivelling up but it works for professional sports stars, why wouldn't it work in this case?

Why it could hinder progress: Cooling down the area, such as with a cup of ice water, will reduce blood flow to the area and will reduce inflammation. The only real reason why you would want to do this is if you are experiencing pain. With the lack of blood flow you are reducing the amount of nutrients as well as the amount of crucial cells for damage repair. Penile exercises are essentially controlled damage and your body will continue to repair the body. With each repair your body makes it bigger, stronger, and more durable. Just like weight lifting is controlled damage.
Why it could be beneficial. Well, if you want to perform two-a-days it could be beneficial after your first session. So, let's say you have be PEing for four years and you have reached a plateau. And you are still looking for half an inch to an inch, or perhaps more. If you would perform two-a-days and ice after your first session your next session would be easier--you would likely experience less pain--because you reduced the inflammation immediately. So, your body didn't really have time to repair itself and now you are back at it with greater time under tension and your body will definitely take note and you could see yourself break through the plateau.
In all honesty though, I do take ice baths after I work out some days. Especially on the days when I lift in the morning and play basketball in the evening. Ice baths are actually quite relaxing after the initial shock of freezing water. When I get out of an ice-bath my body feels amazing. Absolutely no pain anywhere. In terms of PE and potential gains from the ice-bath idea. I am doubtful that the ice-bath will play a significant role unless your time under tension is equivalent to that of an athlete that trains every single day for several hours. I just don't see a correlation. As with many things, it is very possible I am wrong.

I remember a few members on this forum saying that they did do 'cool' downs though it wasn't as extremity as icing. Rather, what they did, was after their PEing session they would hold their pens in an elongated state while cooling it down with cool to cold water, and actually yeah many used ice packs. It was something about healing in an extended state to keep permanent..
Could probably find it, it was likely titled 'cool downs' and I seen it when I first did PE, about Jan. 2010https://www.pegym.com/forums/progres...-8x6-25-a.html <-- log
