Crucible

I may use the BB later but people have told me to use the WorkOut Journals so I made this thread:  http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=136693921


 In spite of linking it in my sig as a reminder I'm not updating it very often. But I am working out more often and haven't felt my biceps injury for a long time, which is good.

OMG pull ups

So I screwed a "perfect pull-up" into the doorway, the one with the rotating handles and all that. Since they hang below the central bar (I tried using that, head hits ceiling) I don't have something to touch my chin to, so I'll basically terminate the rep when the heel of my palm touches the chesty area.


 2.5 reps! Amazing! I suppose I should do a lot of sets of these, compensating in volume for what I lack in endurance.


 I'm still really wishing I had a lat pulldown though. I know I have a lot of strength in the tank (I mainly feel biceps, barely anything in lats) and I'm sure if I could do a drop set I'd be able to reach a greater level of fatigue.


 The idea occured "hey do curls so you don't feel biceps" but that's probably a ****ty idea and I should just practise these more often.


 So yeah. I don't know what else to do. Maybe I should try some push-ups, perhaps the tricep stuff would help relax the biceps a bit and keep me busy doing something to keep the heartrate up while they rest, and when I'm done that, try another pathetic "strength" pull up set? Yeah...

Weight loss

Shoot, I'm down to 174lbs last I checked. Can do about 5pulls or so but I don't think I got stronger, they just got easier obviously.

 

Woah, imbed YouTube vids? Sounds interesting! However...  Ican't stalkers, eh well. Or maybe I should... I dunno. Will it make things more problemati? Surely that one focuses on lifting rather than fighting Ripley's nemeses and the Terminator would be comforting, but I think they'd think it's just to make pulling arms easier.

Welcome!

Cool, a bodyblog. First post eh? Well..let's see, I've been making some progress. I can do about 5 chinups without struggling hard. I haven't actually tried struggling much to the point of extreme panting. I guess I have trouble getting psyched out, so I have to stick with the whole GtG method for consistancy due to the lack of enthusiasm.


 I'd like to think it's because I'm getting stronger, but I think I've actually lost weight, I should go weigh and check. Basically because pants are fitting looser and abdominal fat has decreased a bit (though still more than I'd like). Probably some kind of combination. No doubt chinning has supplemented other physical activities to help burn fat more.
