Status Quo with Pull-Ups
Here’s the deal with my pull-ups.
I am 6’2″ / 189 lbs / 40 y.o., and was never any good at pull-ups. Pull-ups are my weakest CrossFit related exercise. Pull-ups were were the weakest link in my “Tabata Something Else” yesterday.
At the gym these days I use a rubber-band to assist me through all workouts that call for pull-ups. And I’ve been saying for a while that I wasn’t really progressing with them. I want change.
It happens that, at home I also have a home pull-up bar of my own making. And some bands. At present I can do about 10 pull ups with a small (1.25″) assistance band.
A Pull-Up Challenge
To my surprise, yesterday I did a dead hang pull-up on my bar at home. So today I again did one. And later I did another one.
It’s my home brew Pull-Up Challenge. Tomorrow I will do 3. On up to as many days as I have access to a pull up, or 100, whichever comes first.
