Natural Penile Exercises
Natural Penis Enlargement is the term used to describe the use of exercise as a way of increasing penis size. With the advent of the Internet, the method has gained a great deal of popularity and is a relatively inexpensive option. There are no shortage of online manuals and programs available, and the majority provide information on basically the same set of exercises and techniques. The quality of the programs, the clarity and comprehensiveness of information and the levels of client support provided do vary considerably however.
One of the main principles of natural penis enlargement is to improve circulation to the penis and to increase the volume of blood held within the erectile tissue. It is the erectile tissue that engorges with blood when sexually aroused resulting in an erection. The theory goes that if the erectile tissue can be encouraged to hold a greater volume of blood than it could otherwise naturally accommodate, then this will in turn result in a larger penis both when erect and flaccid.
Bearing in mind that the shaft of the penis consists primarily of erectile tissue and that skin is very elastic, easily capable of stretching to accommodate growth, it does seem reasonable to suggest that stimulating the erectile tissue in this way and increasing the volume of blood the tissue is capable of holding will help to promote gains in penis size.
One of the techniques used to increase the blood capacity of the erectile tissue is called the Jelq. The technique encourages blood to be forced into all the areas of the erectile tissue.
The basic technique is quite simple to perform and relies on applying a milking motion along the length of the semi erect penile shaft.
To achieve this, the thumb and forefinger are used to encircle the base of the penis. A moderately firm grip is used to maintain the partial erection and to ensure the blood is securely trapped. Maintaining this moderate pressure, the grip hand then slides forward along the length of the shaft and forces as much blood as possible into all areas of the erectile tissue.
As the grip hand nears the end of the penile shaft the alternate hand then repeats the process, resulting in a continuous motion with each stroke taking around 1-2 seconds. To perform the Jelq correctly, it is often helpful to use a lubricant such as baby oil as this helps the gripping hand to slide without resistance along the length of the penis.
Exercises to stretch the penis are another common component of a well planned routine. These exercises work on the well known principle that the body is capable of adapting when subjected to the force of tension. In fact, the application of tensile force is used in certain areas of mainstream medicine and is actually part of the postoperative treatment for men who have undergone Penile Augmentation Surgery.
These techniques primarily stretch the suspensory ligaments responsible for supporting and connecting the penis to the pubic bone. This is considered important as the suspensory ligaments also secure approximately half of the length of the penile shaft within the body. Stretching these ligaments encourages the part of the penis usually held within the body to be gradually exposed over a period of time.
Interestingly, surgical techniques to lengthen the penis also focus on the suspensory ligaments. However, instead of stretching the ligaments, they are literally severed. This results in immediate gains in length but is a far more drastic procedure. One of the main drawbacks of surgical lengthening procedures is that the formation of scar tissue can actually cause the suspensory ligaments to heal shorter than they were originally and initial gains can be partially or totally lost.
Stretching exercises are usually performed when the penis is flaccid. The basic technique involves gripping the penis firmly around the head and then gently pulling forward. The idea of the stretch is not to pull the penis to the point of pain but to just pull sufficiently so that the penis is stretched to its maximum comfortable limit. An example of a stretching exercise would then be to hold the stretch for approximately 15 seconds before relaxing. To complete the session the process would then be repeated 10-15 times.
Good penis enlargement programs provide routines with several important variations of the above technique. They include performing different numbers of repetitions per session and holding each stretch for longer or shorter periods of time depending on the particular exercise. They also provide a combination of techniques designed to stretch all the areas of the penis and suspensory ligaments. This is very important in order to achieve maximum results.
One thing to bear in mind is that stretching exercises primarily promote gains in penis length as opposed to penis girth. These techniques therefore, only form part of an effective routine.
Not all natural penis enlargement techniques rely on specifically exercising the penis. A very important example of this is the use of exercises known as Kegels. The idea behind Kegel exercises is to strengthen the PC muscle. This is the muscle you contract to stop the flow of urine and is located between the scrotum and anus. It is one of four muscles that make up the group of muscles known as the pelvic floor.
Exercising the PC muscle has quite a few well known benefits. Firstly, a strong PC muscle improves blood flow to the penis and will help to maintain strong, firm erections. This in itself makes the penis appear larger when erect due to the fact that it is engorged to capacity with blood. Also, because circulation to the penis is improved, the effects of other more specific enlargement technique like the Jelq are enhanced.
The PC muscle also plays an important role in ejaculation. Strengthening this muscle helps to improve ejaculatory control. A strong PC helps to delay ejaculation, enhances orgasm intensity and results in more powerful and copious ejaculations.
To perform Kegels, you simply slowly tense the PC muscle. Once tensed, you then hold the contraction for a few seconds before relaxing. There are again, quite a few variations. Some involve holding the contraction for a longer period of time and performing fewer repetitions, whilst other variations involve higher numbers of quickly performed repetitions. A good routine will consist of performing both types and will carefully combine the two techniques.
All the above exercises and their variations are simple enough to perform. However, you do need quite a lot of dedication and need to follow a carefully planned routine. As with any type of exercise, the benefits take a while to be noticeable. However, speaking from personal experience, it's possible to gain at least an inch in erect length within three months, with similar gains in girth. Within six months the gains can be very dramatic.
There’s been a dramatic increase in the number of penile exercise guides available in recent years; and for those looking for a trustworthy, reputable and effective program, the choice can be daunting. What’s more, because such exercise programs work on a membership basis, it’s impossible to evaluate their quality before you join – which of course means that choosing the right program is something of a lottery.
Unfortunately, behind the sales pitches, many of these guides provide little substance – detailing only ‘beginner’ exercises (such as those mentioned above) that will produce frustratingly slow, if any gains.
To be both effective and safe, the penis exercise program you follow must be extremely well structured - in a similar way to a properly devised body workout. Doing too much or too little, applying the wrong intensity exercises or following a slapdash routine that doesn't progressively increase physical stimulus to the penis will lead to extremely stunted progress.
Not doing things correctly (either because of apathy or the use of poor instructional material) is one of the main reasons for failure. But this shouldn't be the case, because with the help of a well-structured program, enlarging your penis through exercise is a relatively simple and time efficient process.
One high calibre guide that does take you step-by-step through each vital stage of development is Erection Fitness – a program that offers a very well structured 'beginner to advanced' penis enlargement exercise system.
This complete program is specifically designed to stimulate maximum growth in just 120 days. It's a meticulously developed workout system that strictly applies the principles of physiology and sports science directly to the penis.
In fact, the program is co-authored by a former power lifter, AJ Alfaro, who in recent years has devoted much of his attention to improving and refining traditional penis exercise techniques. The Erection Fitness program is the result of much of that work, and Alfaro's expert knowledge of how the body responds to exercise is used to maximum effect.
Similar to a high intensity bodybuilding program, the guide details exactly what to do day-by-day, including which days to workout and which days to rest to avoid overtraining.
On training days, you're provided with strict set routines to follow, showing you exactly what exercises to perform and how to combine them in order to make your workouts as productive as possible. As with all types of exercise, it's very easy to under or over train the penis - but with these day-by-day workout routines the problem is virtually eliminated.
Unlike most natural penis enlargement programs, the Erection Fitness program also shows you how to systematically increase workout intensity over the course of training - which is one of the key factors in forcing continual penile growth.
It does this by progressively introducing higher intensity exercises throughout the training phase and by methodically substituting workout routines. This 'progressive overload' system (a term you'll see mentioned on the Erection Fitness website) is a core reason the system is so much more powerful in contrast to other exercise guides. It's certainly why the program encourages maximum growth of 2 or more inches of erect length in such a relatively short time frame.
This is a very carefully constructed program that avoids any need for guesswork. Not only do you get an expertly developed day-by-day workout system, but the instructional material is presented in an extremely concise format - so you don't waste time trying to digest information. As you'd expect from a high-end workout program, you also have plenty of video demonstrations and pictures of all the techniques detailed - which are particularly helpful for getting to grips with the more advanced exercises.
All in all Erection Fitness is probably the most intelligently devised penile exercise system you'll find; and certainly provides all the exercises and structured routines you need to enlarge your penis as efficiently as possible.
As far as safety issues are concerned, natural penis enlargement is probably the safest method available. Performing the exercises correctly and not over training are the keys to success - which is why it's vitally important to follow a carefully planned routine.
When starting a natural penis enlargement program the penis may feel slightly sore for the first few days or slight bruising may occur. This goes away very quickly. Any sort of sharp or persistent pain is a strong indicator that you are not performing the techniques correctly or are exercising too vigorously. Poor technique or working out too hard has the same effect with any type of exercise. If you carefully follow the instructions of a good program you'll have no problems whatsoever. The process will be completely safe and you'll be amazed at what can be achieved with a little perseverance.
