Jelqing is a lot like the push up of penis exercising. It's the backbone of all the other exercises. When done healthfully, jelqing can make your penis bigger and harder - similar to how exercising your muscles can make your them bigger and harder. Healthfully, means not going overboard and starting out light. The Jelqing Workout Step 1 Warm Up The warm literally involves applying heat to your penis. The common ways to heat your penis include 1) Using a heating pad 2) Using a warm, wet wash cloth 3)Taking a hot shower All of the above should be applied directly to the penis. Don't skip the warm up. It's akin to warming up before you go running or lift weights - it leads to more results and less injury. Warm up for at least 5 minutes, but you're best bet is to shoot for 10 minutes. Step 2 Apply the Lube Lubrication is important because it will help you to jelq your penis in a gentle manner. It will also help you avoid any skin chaffing. The most common lubricants are KY Jelly, Vaseline, and baby oil. Step 3 Get the blood pumping You'll need some blood in your penis to jelq effectively. Yet, at the same time, you don't want to jelq with an erection - or even near it. Jelqing with an erection is potentially dangerous. Your penis should be somewhere between semi-hard and semi-soft. The goal is somewhere around 70 % erect. Step 4 OK, grip it You'll want to create an OK-grip with your thumb and pointer finger and put it at the base of your penis. The grip looks like you're giving the OK symbol. Step 5 Jelq your penis Apply pressure to the grip and move it down the shaft. You want the pressure to be light and gentle, yet at the same time effective. Stop the jelq before you reach the head of your penis (don't jelq your head). The jelq should take roughly three or so second. Then use your other hand to repeat the jelq. Switch hands every jelq rep until you acquire the number of reps. For the first few weeks, do nomore than 150 jelqs per workout. Don't jelq every day, especially when you're first starting out. Going overboard is a common problem for new jelqers - and this is why jelqing has a bad wrap.View Thread
