I vaguely remember reading a while ago that if you add too much weight too fast that would make the penis adapt by hardening up, thus making me add more weight to “feel it” more, then causing my penis to adapt even more, and become even stronger, and making it less and less able to stretch for the purpose of PE. I can’t remember exactly where I read it.

But what do you think about this? If you go too heavy too fast, does the penis adapt and become harder to enlarge? I’ve started hanging about 3 weeks ago at 4 lbs, and starting today I’m at 8 lbs, doing two to three 45-minute sets a day.

I feel like I could even go to 9 pounds pretty soon. Should I? Or is that thing about the penis adapting and becoming tougher and harder to enlarge, true?

I’ve always recommended slow steady increases in weight and time. You can not make dramatic jumps from a light weight to a much heavier weight without negative side effects (primarily a blister).
It’s very important to allow your penis time to develop tissue maturity via the conditioning process. I have said this countless times…. it took me three full months to go from 3 lbs to 8 lbs.

If you feel you can do more weight then that decision is up to you. Weight hanging is an intuitive process, you’re learning what type of work load your penis can handle and more importantly what it requires to reach fatigue.

The theoretical assumption that going too heavy too fast can make your penis stronger and cause it to prematurely adapt to the work load and inhibit gains is purely speculative. It might have some merit, but nobody knows for certain if that is true. If they can say this without any reservation, I would ask how can you prove it?

As for how much weight you feel you can hang with at this time, is a decision only you can make. It’s all based on how you feel and respond. You will eventually get to a place where you cannot go any heavier. So to me it only makes logical sense to make gradual increases and focus on achieving fatigue and learning how to relax your pelvic floor muscle while you are under traction.
