Jelqing is considered the most traditional and basic penile enlargement exercise. It is popular among beginners as well as advanced men in the PE community.
Preparation and warm up before you begin:
Here are the basic steps to complete a single jelq:
It does not matter whether you put your hand over the penis or under it, as long as the thumb and index finger surround the shaft. Find the hand position you are most comfortable with. It is also good to alternate.
It is up to you whether you want to stretch your skin or not.
Some men prefer more skin over their glans. Others want to focus more on the penis shaft alone. Some skin pull is actually considered good because it helps to add “thickness” to your penis.
To avoid skin pull:
You should jelq 4 or 5 times per week. It is nice to take a day’s break from time to time to allow the muscles and blood vessels to recover.
Throughout your session, stroke your penis continuously without stopping. If your hand gets tired or your penis gets sore, take a break for a minute, then continue. Each session should not last longer than 15 minutes. 10 minutes per session on average is ideal.
During your shower, or immediately after you get out, your penis muscles will be more relaxed. At that time, jelqing will be more effective and more enjoyable.
If you are using a pump or an extender, always jelq when you finish using the device. Do it for (at least) a few minutes to massage your penis and redistribute the blood evenly.
Below is a sample routine you can follow. It follows our recommended “2-day break per week” advice.
|Monday||15 minutes||10 minutes||8 hours|
|Tuesday||20 minutes||15 minutes||8 hours|
|Thursday||15 minutes||10 minutes||8 hours|
|Friday||15 minutes||10 minutes||8 hours|
|Saturday||20 minutes||15 minutes||8 hours|
If your sessions are shorter than 10 minutes, you can jelq twice a day.
On the day before my rest-day, I exercise a bit more. This is just a personal preference.
Not every jelqing session needs to be effective. This is normal. Here are some signs of a successful session:
Most of the signs mentioned above are indicators that blood has been pushed up your penis. This is the main goal of this exercise.
As you jelq, you stretch and massage the veins in your penis. This allows for better blood flow. With better blood flow, the following benefits come:
All jelqing exercises increase both your penis length and girth.
Achieving better results is very possible. However, the gains you can get when combining PE devices (pumps and extenders) are a lot larger.
It is hard for me to measure my gains with jelqing alone because I always combine it with other tools. However, I did experiment with jelqing on its own for 1 month. I found that I gained 0.2 inches. This is great because I usually lose some of my gains when I take a long break without any exercises at all.
Also, note that I am an advanced user. It is easier for beginners to see gains faster.
Gains are not permanent. You need to maintain at least some level of exercise – similar to any muscle you build in your body. This is not too difficult because jelqing once or twice a week would be enough.

Jelqing is meant to be a light and relaxing exercise. It is generally safe, and there should not be any adverse side effects. Follow these tips to prevent injury or soreness in the long-run:
Improper use can also cause additional irritation because the machines use plastic, while manual jelqing rubs your skin using a natural way.
We do not recommend using any tools for this exercise.
You can also try a V Jelq (see this guide). It is done by doing a V shape with your fingers, rather than an O. Some users claimed it to provide better girth gains.
