The first thing you'll want to do before you begin any penis enlargement exercise program is to take measurements of your penis and create a chart to track your progress and growth. No cheating when you do this; you want to make double sure that the program you are using is having the desired effect.
Let's look at the proper way to measure your penis, without cheating. You might want to create a chart so that you can take notes and track your progress that way, provided that the program you are using does not already provide one.
The length of your penis is the distance between the tip of your head to where your penis connects to your abdomen (measuring the top of the penis, not the bottom). The circumference of your penis is the distance around the thickest part of the shaft.
You should measure your member when it is flaccid, and then when it is erect. Make sure that when you're measuring your erect penis, that it's as hard as you can possibly get it.
Length measurements should be done with a ruler, and don't press it into your belly. Just place the ruler against the skin of your abdomen. You want correct measurements, right?
When you measure girth, use a fabric tape measure or a piece of yarn or string and wrap it carefully around your penis once, and mark the spot where the measure touches itself. If you're using string or yarn, measure it against a ruler.
You can easily create your own growth chart for recording your measurements either on your computer by using a program such as Excel, or you can do it even more simply by using pen and paper. All you need to do is record your starting date and measurements, and then create spaces to record your progress over two week increments.
There are some other factors you need to take into consideration that affects the way your penis looks,both to you and to others.
The first is your pubic hair. Depending upon how much you have down there, your pubic hair can cover up close to an inch of penis when you're observing it from above. It makes your penis look smaller than it really is. Cutting or completely shaving off your pubic hair can make your penis appear bigger. Another reason for trimming or shaving off your hair is that once you began your penis enlargement exercises, you don't want the hair causing you any pain or discomfort.
Another thing to consider is your weight. Are you chubby? Believe it or not, your weight has a direct effect on how large or small your sex organ looks. Fat around the lower abdominal area is going to cause your penis to look smaller.
With that thought in mind, why not make this a time to not only get your penis in better shape, but your entire body as well? If you're overweight, find a diet and exercise program that you can stick with. Also build your abdominal area and your muscle mass in all parts of your body. This will aid you in all aspects of your life. In fact, exercising and losing weight will automatically make you look sexier and will help enhance the look of your penis, too. That's a "win-win" situation if there ever was one.
Time To Begin Exercising Your Penis
Two things you need to be aware of and always keep in mind when you're doing your penis enlargement exercise program: safety and lubrication.
Your exercise program is going to involve using your hands to manipulate your penis. Some call this technique "jelqing." For some jelqing exercises, you will need a good lubricant that will keep the risk of skin irritation and chafing at bay.
You can use a sexual lubricant or a good quality moisturizer. Both of these will probably require reapplication during your exercising, which can be inconvenient. Some men use petroleum jelly, and while this can work well, it's pretty messy. Others like olive oil, which can also be messy. Experiment with what works best for you. (Some penis enlargement exercise programs, like ErectionFitness.com, include a lubricant, such as VigRX Oil Topical Erection Oil, that has been proven to compliment the exercise or jelqing parts of the program. VigRX Plus Male Enhancement Pills, one of the most popular supplements on the market today, is also included to help speed results and give you the cock of your dreams.)
A word of caution: Never use products like shampoo or soap; they simply are not good choices for lubricants. They can cause skin irritations and become more trouble than they're worth.
