Bathmate Routines for Beginners

For beginners who just bought their first Bathmate (or Hydromax), it is better to stick to a well-designed and tested routine. The initial 90 days are crucial for conditioning before embarking on more advanced training methods in the next months or years.

If you are still contemplating about purchasing the pump, read our Bathmate and Hydromax reviews page that includes: model overviews, proper usage tips, user length and girth results, and sexual benefits from pumping.

Bathmate-Only Routine

Here is a sample beginner’s routine for the first 60 days. It is safe, effective, and only needs basic knowledge of pumping with a Bathmate.

To learn the basics and how to warm-up properly – read our guide on how to use Bathmate.

Alternatively, you can schedule the workout and rest every other day. The thing to remember here is that, like any bodybuilding exercises, you must give your penis ample time to recover and grow.

Routine with Manual Exercises

After 60 days, your penis is now accustomed to penile training. You can start doing multiple pumping sets that last up to 20 minutes.

While Bathmate works well on its own, if you aim for better results and maximum gains, you should now consider including manual exercises to your routine. Here is a sample routine that combines jelqing and Bathmate stretching. (We’ll discuss how to do a Bathmate stretch in the next section, and how to jelq correctly on this page).

Monday, TuesdayWednesdayThursday, FridaySaturday, Sunday
Week 9Warm-up. Jelq for 5 minutes. Do full-pressure stretching for 5 minutes on a flaccid penis. Cooldown.Rest.Warm-up. Jelq for 5 minutes. Do full-pressure stretching for 5 minutes on a flaccid penis. Cooldown.Rest.
Week 10Warm-up. Jelq for 5 minutes. Do full-pressure stretching for 8 minutes on a flaccid penis. Cooldown.Rest.Warm-up. Jelq for 5 minutes. Do full-pressure stretching for 8 minutes on a flaccid penis. Cooldown.Rest.
Week 11Warm-up. Jelq for 5 minutes. Do full-pressure stretching for 8 minutes on a semi-erect (50-60% hard) penis. Cooldown.Rest.Warm-up. Jelq for 5 minutes. Do full-pressure stretching for 8 minutes on a semi-erect (50-60% hard) penis. Cooldown.Rest.
Week 12Warm-up. Jelq for 5 minutes. Do full-pressure stretching for 10 minutes on a semi-erect (50-60% hard) penis. Cooldown.Rest.Warm-up. Jelq for 5 minutes. Do full-pressure stretching for 10 minutes on a semi-erect (50-60% hard) penis. Cooldown.Rest.

Again, as an alternative, you can schedule the workout and rest every other day.

How to do Bathmate Stretches

Stretching is useful for gaining penis length (regular pumping is better for girth). It is an integral part of more advanced routines, but newbies can start integrating stretches early on. A Bathmate stretch pulls the so-called internal penis — the part of your penis hidden inside your body.

To do stretching, prepare the same way as you will be doing a regular pumping. Wait for 1 minute then follow these steps:

  1. Pull the Bathmate forward while holding your penis’ base so your balls won’t get sucked. Hold for 30 seconds.
  2. Pull the Bathmate to the left. Again, hold your penis’ base. Hold for another 30 seconds.
  3. Pull the Bathmate to the right while holding your base. Hold for another 30 seconds.
  4. Pull the Bathmate downward while holding your base. Hold for another 30 seconds.
  5. Repeat steps 1-4 two or three more times. Once in a while, pump out excess water.

Remember to maintain a nice balance between doing a stretch that is strong enough to pull the internal penis and keeping a stable suction to prevent loss of pressure. But don’t pull so hard as it may cause harm to your testicles. Also, you may incorporate some Kegel exercises to increase blood flow.

Stretching is harmless but can be unpleasant too. If it’s your first time to do stretching, just get used to it without causing undue stress to your sex organs.

Safety and Other Tips

  • Read the instruction manual thoroughly before starting.
  • Observe proper rest and recovery.
  • Don’t pump too hard. Watch out for red spots (from burst blood vessels), swelling or other symptoms of excessive expansion. Also, check out our guide to avoid fluid retention.
  • Don’t do more than 20 minutes of pumping at a time.
  • Don’t get overzealous with jelqing or stretching. Any recklessness will bring you injury and will just delay your progress.
  • Shave or trim your pubic hair for better sealing. Hairs let air enter the tube and would cause loss of pressure.
  • Consider using oil or lotion for better sealing.
  • Consult your doctor to discuss your body’s limitations when doing penile training.
  • Always listen to your body. Only do exercises which your body can take.

Final Advice

When starting with Bathmate, it is best to start with a light routine before ramping up your training. Our recommended 90-day routine will help you start on the right track without causing any harm and will help your penis get adjusted to a more rigorous male enhancement exercises.

Always keep in mind these three keys: repetition, commitment, and consistency.

  1. First of all, you wrote great instructions. It really helps me a lot as a beginner. I have questions though.
    How about the Bathmate routine after week 8? Do the jelqing and stretching start at week 9 or week 9 is the same with Bathmate week 1?
    One more thing, I heard about the donut effect. What causes it and what should I do if I have one? Thank you.

    1. After week 8, I posted the continuation routine for week 9 – which involves jelqing and stretching.
      We actually explained the donut effect in this article here.

  2. Hey, so for the first 8 weeks, do I need to keep the Bathmate on for the whole 14-18min for example, or do I need to divide that into two sets of 7-9min?

    1. Try to do it all in one go. You will see how the effects really amplify if you hold the tension and don’t let go.

      Notice how you have to work your way up to the 14-18 minutes mark. This is because of the intense pressure at that level. You will need to gauge yourself throughout the weeks to find the rate you are comfortable with.

      If you feel like holding the tension for 7 minutes (for example) is too much for you, don’t increase the tension time.

      We actually recommend never to go over 20 minutes due to a risk of injury.

  3. This post is very useful.
    Slightly confused here, though. I thought Bathmate recommended 3 sets of 3-5 minutes for beginners for a total of 15 minutes a day.
    But if I understood your instructions clearly, you’re advising that we do one set of 5-7 minutes to start off.
    Are you suggesting we forgo the manufacturer’s instructions?

    1. Note that the manufacturer wants to take extra safety precautions to avoid injury complaints. Injuries include ‘bruising’, which recover after a few days. So even if they do happen, it is nothing dangerous.

      After you are comfortable with 3-5 minutes sessions, we recommend that you hold the pump on for longer to achieve better results faster.

      Always use your own judgment with what your penis is comfortable with at this point.

  4. Would it be wise for someone who has been using an air pump for about a year and a half to try an advanced routine, or start out with a beginning routine?

    1. See how you feel after a day or two of the beginner’s routine. If your penis is not getting enough stress – you could try the advanced routine.

      Air pumps do not have nearly as much potential as water pumps, so I would guess you need to start from the bottom.

  5. So after week 12, do I just repeat the whole routine from week 1? or what?

    1. By the time you get to week 12 you should already have a good feel as to what exercises give your penis the right balance of stress and growth.
