Has anyone here ever tried stretching with heat? I've seen one or two posts of veterans stretching with a heater or some sort and have had good gains from it. I'm thinking of getting one myself. The concept makes sense; heat further expands the tissues while stretching, making gains easier. Thoughts, opinions, and experiences are welcome.

heat itself does not expand the tissue it just makes it more pliable, allowing you to be able to stretch the tissue a tad more.
Use a heater, heating pad or infrared lamp. Having heat wont guarantee gains but its better to do your routine in a heated environment then say outside in the cold (extreme example). If you use heat your entire workout you dont need to warm down, as there would be no benifit since you've had heat the entire workout. You would then want to cool down.
Best of luck.

After every set of stretching, and after every 20 or 30 jelqs, I run hot/warm water to warm up. Then continue. If I don't have time for that, I warm up in the beginning and end of my session.
It seems to increase the effectiveness of my routine alot.Used to do PE on and off 2 years ago. I was 6.75 NBPEL, Measured a bit ago and was 7. Now keeping track.

Well I stretch while taking a warm bath. I find it helps to stretch in warm water. ^_^"We live to make the impossible possible that is our focus!"- Lightning

When you warm a tissue, you temporarily increase the elasticity of the collagen fibers which means that you'll be able to stretch further. The question is: is this going to increase your gains? I'm not sure about this but don't see any harm in trying this method

I see this having nothing but positive gains. Heat allows the tissues to expand farther, so you'll have a more intense stretch.

Heat is good, I use the panel radiators in my bathroom and sometimes the floor standing radiators as the temperature is perfect for me and an almost universally available heat source this time of year.

As in a normal gym, there is a benefit to warming up any muscle you are about to work out. It only takes 5 - 10 minutes with a rice sock, and it may prevent injury. Like the rules, I'm trying to bend my penis, not break it.Guiness

Lehman and associates (1970) studied the effects of heat and stretching on rat tail tendons, which I believe was done under constant heat and then cooled post stretch to achieve permanent lengthening.

The real problem seems to be, however, sufficiently heating the penis, and not just it's exterior. What warm up method will really heat the penis up inside?
