So right now we're going to give an overview on how to increase penis length - here's what we're going to cover in this article:

  1. We're going to see how increasing penis length works
  2. What steps you need to take to accomplish it successfully.
  3. The common mistakes that guys make and the simple rules to follow to avoid making these mistakes yourself.

The Steps on How to Increase Penis Length

Increasing penis length is done by none other than penis stretching exercises.

While the idea is very simple and the exercises are very easy to learn, there are a few variations on each stretching exercises that you should learn.

Each variation will allow you to get a complete workout and will set you on the right track to increasing your penis length permanently and naturally.

The basic penis stretching exercise is as follows:

You basically grab the area under the base of your glans with your fingers and you pull.

Don't pull so hard as to cause sharp pain, pull hard enough to fully stretch out your penile shaft tissues.

You can pull in multiple directions: You can pull straight out. You can pull to the left, or to the right, or straight up, or pointing downwards.

After you pick a direction to pull, then you have to hold that stretch for approximately 20 seconds for each repetition.

After you held for 20 seconds, then you release to give your penis some resting time in preparation for the next repetition.

A good penis stretching exercise session lasts 20 minutes excluding the resting times.

Therefore, to be efficient with your time, you want to minimize the time between each rep.

Ideally, you want to do one 20 minute session of your manual stretching exercises every day.

You're allowed one day of rest each week. If a commitment like this is too much for you, then we highly recommend that you use a penis extender device like the PhalloGauge Model S.

It eliminates the need to have to schedule a time-block for penis stretching and it requires zero physical effort (no pulling with your hands) on your part.

It's great for those who are very busy and want to multitask.

It's also great for those people who think they might be too lazy and might fail to be consistent with their daily manual stretching exercise sessions.

In the end, we're presenting you with the two solutions that work, but it's up to you to pick the right method that fits your lifestyle.

It's completely possible to increase penis length as proven by Clinical Studies

You better believe it, because data has actually been collected on penis stretching methods.

Specifically, clinical studies were done with penis extender devices.

Remember, penis extender devices are tools that are used to hold the penis in an elongated, traction state, to automatically stretch the penis.

Here are the clinical results for one such study:

The full study can be accessed here.

Amazing, huh? This study showed that an average erect length gain of 0.71 inches was achieved after 6 months of using a penis extender device!

Say what you want, but that's actually a lot, especially considering penis enlargement was once thought to be impossible - we now have proven that it's not.

The science behind it? Cell Hyperplasia.

Okay, so now you know that you have to do stretching exercises to increase your penis length.

But how exactly does doing this increase length?

Cell Hyperplasia is very similar to a scientific phenomena called hypertrophy which is what happens when you are building muscle tissue at the gym.

Hypertrophy is when you train the muscles and the muscle cells respond to the stimulus by having each cell grow bigger.

Now, there's a slight difference when it comes to increasing penis length, however.

The difference is that instead of hypertrophy happening, something very similar called cell hyperplasia happens instead.

In the case of hyperplasia, the number of cells increase in the penile tissue.

cell hyperplasia division

Steps that a cell undergoes to divide and multiply.

Instead of each individual cell growing larger like in hypertrophy, the result is very similar - a very real, physical and visual improvement in penis length.

But there's one major advantage of cell hyperplasia over cell hypertrophy.

That is, with cell hyperplasia the new cells that grow are there permanently - after all, new cells don't just disappear after they grow (that's why you don't shrink as you age).

This is not true with cell hypertrophy.

What this means is that any penis length gains that you get when trying to increase your penis size will stay with you permanently, unlike any muscle size gains that you get from working out at the gym.

This is really powerful and in your favor because that means all you have to do is train your penis only once in your life and you'll reap the benefits for the rest of your life.

The same is not true with muscle training - if you want to keep your gains, then you have to hit the gym consistently for the rest of your life.

Common mistakes that guys will make when trying to increase their length

While there are actually a few more common mistakes that guys make than the ones listed here, we're going to cover the ones you definitely need to know, right now.


Just like with regular fitness, overtraining is very real and undesirable.

It usually happens when guys get too excited and start stretching either too hard or too long during the day.

The biggest disadvantage to over training is that when you injure yourself, you set yourself back 1 - 3 months - a big loss of time.

That's because you have to spend time healing yourself - very similar to a athlete who tears their ACL or breaks their leg.

Natural penis enlargement is also not the fastest process, so any setbacks simply increase the burden on you.

In terms of not stretching too hard, the easiest rule to follow is to make sure that you don't feel any sharp intense pain.

Don't overstretch! If you feel pain stop immediately.

If you follow that simple rule then you won't overtrain from applying too much force.

Overtraining from pulling to hard is not an issue that arises a lot, because once guys feel pain, they will stop - their natural reaction to pain.

Complications occur when guys think that they have to create pain to get results - completely untrue, and now you know better!

Just like regular fitness training, recovery is a very important aspect of succeeding.

The most common way that guys will overtrain is when they spend too much time each day stretching.

Specifically, you need to give yourself sufficient time every single day to rest and allow the tissues to regrow bigger and stronger than before.

So what's the general rule to follow for overtraining by stretching for too long?

For manual penis stretching exercises, don't stretch more than 20 minutes a day.

For those who use penis extender devices, don't stretch for more than 6 hours a day.

Again if you follow these simple rules then you shouldn't run into the issues of over training.


Undertraining is the opposite, but also an undesirable result.

Undertraining is pretty simple: it's when you either don't pull hard enough or you don't pull for long enough.

Too easy, huh?

Again, we will make the common fitness analogy: Like with regular fitness, you always want to be challenging yourself.

So if you do a stretch and you don't feel any pain, try to see if you can pull a little harder. Then, try to see if you can go for a little longer.

It helps to log and report your progress, just as gym goers do in their notebooks. They keep track of number of reps done and weight used.

So what's the general rule to follow to prevent undertraining?

The rule is, if you feel you can go a little harder or go for a little longer, then you're probably not pushing yourself hard enough.

It helps to log how long you've been training for so that you can get a solid record on what works and what doesn't work for you.

With manual stretching exercises, they're a little bit more tricky compared to wearing a penis extender device because it's hard to apply a stable and consistent force in both the strength of the force and the amount of time you're applying that force for.

Penis extender devices don't have this problem because you just set the tension in the extender and then you wear it for a certain amount of time - usually 3 to 4 hours a day.

Additionally, with penis extender devices, you don't have to account for the "downtime" that you experience between each manual stretching repetition.

A common mistake is that guys will unknowingly cut corners by timing their manual stretching session for 20 minutes, but don't account for the time spent between each rep.

So what happens is they think they spent 20 minutes stretching, but really only spent 13 minutes in reality.

See, if you just follow the prescribed instructions for penis extender devices then you're pretty much set and you don't really have to worry about overtraining or undertraining at all.

The main point is that manual stretching exercises require more effort on your part - both mental and physical effort.

But if you decide to go the manual stretching route, you have to be very diligent to make sure you're avoiding these mistakes.

Not Getting a Proper Blood Flow

Not getting the proper blood flow in your penis is also another big mistake we see guys made.

They think that they can just stretch and do the exercises and they'll gain size.

This couldn't be farther from the truth.

The exercises and penis extender devices just allow you to train and break your penile tissue down.

But it's absolutely crucial that you have a blood flow that allows you to recover.

The strong blood flow is what delivers the nutrients to your penile tissue so that it can build back stronger and bigger.

A healthy blood flow allows nutrients to be carried to your penile tissues.

The easiest way to remember why you need a strong blood flow is that you can't build something out of nothing.

This means you have to deliver the building blocks to your penile tissue somehow.

How? With your blood!

Unfortunately, with the advent of pornography and other overstimulating images being increasingly common across the internet, many guys are victim to killing their own blood flow by giving themselves and erectile dysfunction that makes it really hard for them to get hard.

If you're not able to give yourself a solid erection within 15 minutes of trying, then you probably have an erectile dysfunction problem.

This will also affect your progress with your penis stretching exercises and your results for length.

Remember, the tissue won't be able to grow and the actual length gains won't be made.

But blood flow isn't just for length gains, it's also the direct indicator of how well you can reach your maximum size when it's time to actually have sex.

So blood flow is actually twice as important.

Don't write it off as irrelevant.
