confusion about VED protocol

Hi, can someone help me understand the VED protocol stickied to the top? I'm looking at the second post of the topic titled "VED PROTOCOLS".

Step 1 is to pump to 20% erection, hold for 5 to 10 seconds, and repeat for 5 minutes.
Step 2 is ditto except 30% erection
Step 3 is ditto except to 50%

Then it says to do this daily for week 1, with cylinder A, for 10 cycles. 10 cycles of what? 10 cycles of step 1 through 3? That would be 5 min x 3 x 10 = 150 minutes total. I don't think that's what is being recommended but I'm not sure how to interface steps 1-3 with the 10 cycles.

Also, when do I pump to full 100% erection, if ever?

Thanks for any clarification.

I agree, that VED protocol seems like it could be worded/laid out more clearly.

Hi, think most are confused with the protocol, i've used the Soma unit for over 5 years, they recommended to take it easy for the first couple of weeks, the gradually build up your vacuum pressure, i found that 5 pumps then rest for 5 seconds,repeat 5 pumps 5 second rest, stop if you feel any pain or bad discomfort,again repeat this for a set time, say 15 minutes, best not try to pump to max for at least a month, if you over pump you could get swelling in your penis, should fad away within 24 hours, do not pump until swelling as gone down. have fund i do
