Growing your penis is just like any other long-term project. If you do it right, you’ll see results in a reasonable amount of time.

If you do it wrong, success will either take longer than you expected, or you won’t see any gains at all.

Here are the Top 5 Penis Enlargement Mistakes and how you can avoid them.

#5: Progressing too Quickly

What’s the problem?

It’s the curse of athletes everywhere. You look at your early gains, and decide it’s not fast enough or good enough.

So you load on the weight (if you’re hanging), crank up the length (if you’re using a penis extender), and go big.

And it works. For a while. Then things go south, often so suddenly you’re left wondering what went wrong.

The trouble with going too hard, too fast, too soon is you set yourself up for an injury. We’re not talking about overtraining here or using excessive force either (see below)…

We’re talking about serious injury to your penis from progressing too quickly as a newbie to the enlargement game.

If you give your little buddy too much, too soon, those tissues that are supposed to stretch and expand tear. And a torn penis isn’t much good to anybody.

What can you do about it?

I know this advice is no fun, but your best defense against this mistake is simple moderation.

If you’re extending, for example, start slow, building up to more serious effort the way you’d spend time lifting light weights to gear up for some power lifting.

The same goes for jelqing, hanging, clamping, etc….

#4: Excessive Masturbation

What’s the problem?

When you masturbate, your body releases a ton of hormones. That’s why it feels good. But that hormone release also burns thru a lot of testosterone after you ejaculate.

You need testosterone for a variety of processes that make for strong erections and solid penis growth.

Further, if you masturbate to porn, you develop a tolerance for dopamine which can wreak all kinds of havoc with your ability to get aroused, or erect, at all.

This puts the kibosh on a lot of the better penis enlargement exercises, and also defeats the purpose of having a big member at all.

What can you do about it?

Quit jacking off. I’m sorry, buddy, but there’s not much more to it than that.

The more you masturbate, the more likely you are to see slower gains or no gains at all. Barring that, try to masturbate less frequently, and without the use of porn.

Sex is okay, though. Shag as much as you want.

#3: Using Too Much Force

What’s the problem?

Stretching and pulling on your penis is what makes it larger. It’s necessary for the whole thing to work.

But men with enlargement experience often go overboard and start cranking too hard, which can lead to numbness and lack of penile sensitivity

This is similar to most stretching exercises, like Superman’s or touching your toes…

If you go too far, you move beyond stretching the tissues and you can literally rip them apart like the string cheese in a fat kid’s lunch.

You do not want that for your penis.

Also, because it’s your penis and not a large muscle, it’s easy to accidentally damage yourself.

What can you do about it?

The solution for this is the same solution you might have heard for hurting yourself while stretching. You want to stretch right up to the point of discomfort and then stop.

More is not better here. Do not get macho about it. Simply pull gently but firmly for as long as the exercise requires.

If it starts to hurt, back off.

#2: Inconsistency in Your Program

What’s the problem?

Penis enlargement through exercises works via a process called cell hyperplasia (source).

If you stress and stretch a cell long enough, it actually divides. More cells = more tissue. More tissue = a larger penis.

But, to put on enough stress and stretching to induce hyperplasia in an adult, you have to be extremely consistent with your exercise program.

Many men I’ve spoken to who reported disappointing gains were not consistent with their penis enlargement exercises.

They tried, but they just weren’t able to get it together to really do their exercises on time, for the right time, every time.

What can you do about it?

This one’s tricky. You know you’re supposed to be consistent in anything you do for long-term gains — whether that’s working out, keeping to a schedule, saving for retirement, or growing your member.

The trouble is making yourself keep to the program you set.

Folks have written whole books and made entire courses on just this topic, but for now here are a few tricks that work for many men:

  • Track your routines, exercises, and progress in a journal
  • Have an accountability buddy
  • Set alarms and reminders in your smart phone
  • Create routines that make it easy to stick to your program

While you’re at it, pay close attention to the mistakes on this list that lead to injury.

There’s nothing like getting sidelined to wreck your consistency.

#1: Overtraining

What’s the problem?

Sometimes, the recommended dosage is too much.

This happens to athletes in all fields. They do their exercise routine, and it’s just a little more than their bodies can handle at that moment.

The tissues in their muscles, ligaments, skin, or what-have-you is too fatigued to regenerate after the damage from the workout.

That results in lost strength, or flexibility, or endurance.

The same goes for your penis enlargement exercises. If you do too much — whatever “too much” means for your physiology — your body won’t be able to recover from the trauma of stretching the tissues in your penis.

What can you do about it?

The trouble with overtraining is you’re often already doing it before you realize it’s causing problems. With penis enlargement, there’s a secret tell your body gives when your penis is being overworked: Morning Wood!

Or rather lack of morning wood. If you notice your penis is softer than usual when you wake up, that’s a sign. Back off on your training until the lead in your pencil is back to its morning usual.

Bonus: Not Being Patient

What’s the problem?

Real enlargement results take time and dedication to a routine. This isn’t something you can just do haphazardly as you feel like it, you really need to stick with it or you won’t get any real results.

Since penis enlargement can be such a demanding and time-intensive process, it can be easy to get discouraged and slack off with your routines. You need to resist that urge!

The reality is that enlargement gains come in short bursts, not all at once or even incrementally over time. You might be following a routine for weeks and not seem to notice any gains, then one day you wake up and notice a significant change.

For this reason, it’s critical that you stay dedicated with your enlargement routines. You might be right on the verge of a spurt of growth, but if you stop your routines at that point you’ll lose everything you’ve worked for.

What can you do about it?

The main thing I tell men who are getting burnt out on enlargement is don’t get discouraged! Penis enlargement isn’t quick or easy, it takes time and dedication to really make it happen.

It’s a mental battle that you need to be ready for. Your mind will try to trick you and say the process isn’t working and it’s taking too much time, but don’t give in! You need to stay dedicated and consistent. The hard work will pay off. Trust me when I say it just takes time.

You need to stick with this for an extended period of time, consistently for months or even years, in order to get the results you want. There are no shortcuts when it comes to penis enlargement, only hard work and determination.

Top 5 Penis Enlargement Mistakes – Conclusion:

Listen, I never promised making your penis noticeably larger was going to be simple, or easy. I just said it was possible for men willing to work an exercise program, and work it well.

Working it well means avoiding these five rookie penis enlargement mistakes. Now you know.

And knowing, as the man says, is half the battle.
