"Reverse Fatigue Theory"
#1
As most of yall know, I am a big time hanger . This is a theory that I am trying out, maybe you have already tried but I will go into detail about it. It is mainly for hangers but I think it can benefit everyone.

Regular Fatigue Theory

When you hang most of the time you will start out heavy and then when you reach fatigue on each set you lower the weight and the time until you are totally fatigued. I tried this but I do not like it cause your body is really not prepped to hit that heavy of weight right away.

Regular fatigue
1 set- 20lbs X 20 min
2 set- 17.5 X 20 min
3rd set 15 X 15 min
4th set 15 X 10 min
5th Set 12 X 10 min

Reverse Fatigue

1st set 12.5 lbs X 20 min
2nd set 13.5 lbs X 20 min
3rd set 15.5 lbs X 15 min
4th set 16.5 lbs X 10 min

Reverse Fatigue Theory

When you start out at a lighter weight your body is having a chance to deal with that weight and get ready for the next. I am getting to fatigue much quicker this way than the other. Before I started this I was fatiguing on my first set of hanging and not getting any more sets that 1-2 a day. That was horrible. Right now I am hanging 15.5 for 10 min, next I will go to 16.5 until I get to a point wear I cannot go more than 5 minutes at a time, then I am totally fatigued. It seems to be working great for me and I ma getting past my sticking point of 15 lbs.
Then what you do is you next hanging day at .5lbs to your starting weight until your staring weight matches your heaviest fatigue weight, then your fatigue weight will go up even more.

As I become for familiar with it and use it more I will fill yall in. Also my head and shaft have stopped becoming discolored which is so amazing!!

Here lately I have been hanging this way! Once I complete my sets, I go through my intense manual stretches , as the ligs are pretty well fatigued by then. I feel that hanging can really fatigue the ligs, and also provide the much needed micro tears, but with manual stretches , you exert more force upon the ligs, but within a shorter time frame (5,10 30 seconds) I have never measured how much force that would be, it must be something like 3 to 5 times the heaviest weight that you could hang. This is only a rough guess. Once I complete the manual session, I go back to hanging a few more sets.

The problem is that once you have gone through a good workout, and you hit the sack at night, everything retracts during sleep! If there could be a way of keeping that stretch during sleep, I am sure that all that was gained, could be kept! As it is, many guys, have a good session, the night before, then when they turn in for the night, it retracts, and tries to heal in a shorter state! A constant in and out battle!


How do I know this you may ask? Well every mourning after a good Hanging /manual stretch session the night before, I get up an set on the edge of my bed. I have a strap that I have modified, for stretching manualy! I place one end around my foot, the other end around my wrist. Once the strap is in place, I grab behind my glans and pull first to the right, center, left. Keep in mind that it is early mourning (5 am) There is no sound or distractions, everything is so very quiet! When I apply pressure to the strap , I can feel and hear my ligs being torn from the retracted state that they tried to heal in over night! Kind of a crunchy sound! It's not painful, it just prooves that I do in fact have micro tears, and that my hanging and manual stretches are working. But how to make it heal in the stretched state??????

Anytime mate! You've helped me plenty as well! Cheers! Here's something to think about! We all know about traction, and how it is used to elongate parts of the body! I look at hanging , and manual stretches , and other methods of enlargement, as forms of traction that are used for short periods of time (workout sessions) After you have completed a good workout, that particular traction session is over. The body then starts to repair, those micro tears. But the tears are being repaired, when the ligs have retracted. My question is: If you have had a good session, and produced those all important micro tears, what is causing the ligs to retract a little? It would seem that they would stay in that particular elongated state, and heal this way.

Perhaps it is in the way that ligs are made up? I feel that if you leave it too long between workouts(hanging /manual stretches ) this gives the ligs a chance to close the gap on those micro tears! To me there are 2 possible types of healing going on with the micro tears within the ligs.

1. negative healing. This is where you have produced micro tears, but have not put enough time (sessions throughout the day and night) into hanging or manual stretches , to keep these tears going the opposite way. So the negative side of the micro tears, pull the penis back toward the body.

2. positive healing. This is where you have produced micro tears as well, but you have such an intense hanging /manual stretching program, that has allot of time involved in it, and several workout sessions throughout the day and night. With this type of schedule, the penis with it's micro tears can not totally heal, as it is not allowed to just dangle for hours on end! When it is trying to heal, it is in a postive motion (healing process is being disturbed constantly by another workout). New tissue is formed to try to close the gap in the tears! The tissue that is formed, is growing in positive direction.(away from the body)

To get a better understanding of negative and positive.Negative is toward the body (pubic bone). Positive is away from the body. If your workout is not timely nor intense enough, you will fall into the negative zone (the penis will retract toward your body after workouts that are spaced 8 hours apart)
If your workouts are intense and occupy staggered workouts (no longer then 3-5 hours apart), they will produce positive healing.

The key to all this is intensity, and time! I am not sure how long it takes for the ligs to heal up! It must be something like 6-8 hours? I think BIB used to hang for many hours a day, and I think DLD stretched for different periods through out a day. I also read somewhere at Thunders, about this chap who would hang, in the mourning, afternoon, evening, and at like 2 am in the mourning also(can't remeber his name!). But all of the above have gained bigtime!

So it would appear that to be successful in gaining, you need to be consistent, intense, and most of all you need to stagger your workouts, to where the ligs do not have any chance to heal in a negative state! The only choice for the ligs, would be positive healing, but this can only be done if the ligs are not allowed to heal totally, and this is through staggered workouts! Just my opinion, What are your thoughts?

You are right on. I am going to get up to 6 hours a day
2 in the am, 2 afternnoon and 2 at night, with postive stretching after each session. This is some good stuff man, thanks for the advice!! I will get right on it.

Thanks Supra! I like the progression idea. I beat the micro-tear healing by hanging early in the AM, doing manuals between sets, then wearing an ADS (the circle device mostly) all day. I understand that the micro-tears will heal in the elongated state if they are kept that way for about 8 hours. So I stretch the Hell out of my Willie first thing, and ADS to keep the work (hopefully).

So far it seems to be working. A couple other fellows I know do a similar thing, but instead of an ADS use a traction wrap to keep the penis elongated for the healing phase. But I know you to be of similar passion as myself and to have in stock a myriad of ADS devices that largely go unused...

What do you mean specifically by 'not prepped'?

>Before I started this I was fatiguing on my first set of hanging and not getting any more sets that 1-2 a day. That was horrible.<

Damn dude, I WISH I could fatigue on the the first set. Fatigue will vary from person to person, remember that we all have different pain tolerance levels, but generally it is a sign of work. The soreness and the fact that the fibers are thinner (due to the micro tears) means you need to hang less weight. When you get to fatigue at half your max you are at total fatigue for that angle, so switch angles or go to ADS, whichever your personal situation allows for.

>It seems to be working great for me and I ma getting past my sticking point of 15 lbs. <

The weight used should not be considered a sticking point, having to increase the weight is a BAD thing (although necessary). If you need more weight it is obvious that the fibers have become stronger. This cannot be avoided, as the body will always adapt, but it will adapt to whatever you throw at it. If you start heavy and lower the weight through the session, it can't adapt to the higher weights because you haven't used any.

>As I become for familiar with it and use it more I will fill yall in. Also my head and shaft have stopped becoming discolored which is so amazing!!<

Yes this is another example of adaption, even the skin and soft tissues will become tougher and more able to handle the stresses.

The routine you use is always an individual thing, if you are getting results from this good for you, I just don't see why you would spend several sets getting to fatigue when you say you can get there in one.

I personally need 'warm up' sets if I need to hang a lot, not because it helps me reach fatigue quicker but because it helps the soft tissues to adapt (I'm uncut), and pain in the skin can stop a session if you are not careful.

Because I am not worred as much about fatigue as I am about the time under the weight and the weight used. Reember this is just a theory, I did not say this was a fact, its just what I am doing and seems to be working good, I got gains so I know its working for me. I ma not saying it will work for everyone. Every one has a different way of Penis Enlargement and different was or thinking and believing, this is what I think.

This is excellent stuff Girthius. Consistency, intensity, and healing in a 'positive' state.

No one could argue that consistency is the most important factor in gaining.
Intensity: In short, time + tension at their most tolerable (I lean more toward time being the more relevant)
Healing in a 'positive' state. Staggering sessions. Nice. I'm one of those guys PirateSteve mentioned who traction wrap when not hanging . What I'll add is that I never miss an opportunity to do "piss-pulls". IMO this is the best thing next to staggering workouts. Anything to keep micro-tears open until the next workout.

I also think what Supra says about "how" one achieves gains is valid. No two bodies (physiology/chemistry) are the same. You have to discover what works best for you in order to get to that hallowed place where you are gaining. This will sometimes take a guy off the beaten path but it's worth the trip. Whatever it takes.
I couldn't agree more Supra.

Supra, how have these reverse fatigue workouts been working out for you over the long run now?
