Thread: Snowball effect
- 02-24-2012 #1
I'm going to be trying something in the coming weeks that I have termed "the snowball effect." I just wanted to ask if anyone else has tried this and if so, how did it work?
The past 4 weeks, I've been jelqing 5 days a week and adding two jelqs every day (I started at 50). This current week is the 5th week since I started PE again and I have been using it as a rest week. I'm coming up on the end of the rest week and am about to start again, but I began to realize that adding only 2 jelqs a day would take a very long time to get me to where I want to be. That's when I came up with the snowball effect.
For the next 4 weeks, I'm going to add 4 jelqs a day instead of two for an increase of 20 per week instead of 10. Then, after another rest week, I'm going to really up the ante. I'll add 10 jelqs per day.
What is basically happening is a slow buildup that gives the penis time to acclimate, but also accelerates so that it doesn't take an eternity to get to a good number of jelqs. Has anyone else tried this? How did it work?

This is pretty common, a lot of people advocate it.PEGym Theme Song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RH76tfDxm7Y

Well, the more jelqs you perform in one session, the less percentage weight each jelq equals in your total workout.
So an addition of 2 jelqs means +2.0% if you're doing 100. But if you're doing 500, that means a 0.4% increase. So I can see how this seems like a logical way to add work. However, let me share some other information.
Adding 2 reps per workout is exactly how I planned increases for the first ~1 month of PE. It seemed like a logical way to gradually increase the workout load, and I had read about it on here somewhere. But I soon changed my mind, decided to jelq for time instead, and haven't looked back since. For me, counting reps was leading to lower rep quality, and thus poor workout quality. Now that I just glance at the clock periodically, it's much better.
Dig this: If you do 3 second strokes (and 2 strokes equals 1 rep) then you're doing 6 second reps. So adding 10 reps would be adding a full minute every workout. To me that sounds like a lot. I added just 30 seconds per week (3 sessions per week) and over a period of 6 weeks I went from: 12 minutes of regular jelqing to 15 minutes; and 7 minutes of V-jelqs to 10 minutes. That leaves me with plenty of the good PI's after a workout, and in fact I have no plans of upping the ante past the current time limit until necessary. I'll work on slower, more quality reps.
If you're really set on counting and adding reps this way, it's totally fine and up to you, but I think the idea of snowballing might not be necessary. Aim for manageable increases and watch your PI's.

Thanks for the perspective ThirdArm. Will definitely keep you guys posted.
The reason I go for reps is because if I pick a certain amount of time and then one day I'm having good EQ and then the next, I'm having bad EQ, I might have to stop more times on the day with bad EQ to restore my erection. This means less work in the same amount of time. That is why I decided to go by number of jelqs. It just works better for me personally.

I have always counted. It does not distract or detract from my form at all. However, many feel otherwise and that is cool. When I do my sessions with a clock nearby I actually do both. I count every rep, but at each quarter mark I glance at the clock to see if I am keeping the usual time frame. This helps me to prevent a very slow, perhaps undetectable drift from my jelq speed over time. I know when I start how many reps I am going to do, and the amount of time it will take. A few quick glances at the clock confirm I am where I should be.
