December pull-ups goal
This past week I started boosting my pull-ups count. As you recall, my goal is to do 12 continuous wide pulls-up using no momentum whatsoever. I’ve recently gotten my count up to a solid 3. I noticed that the pull-ups are easier to do when I train my chest. It’s as if working the opposite muscle group (in this case the chest) tricks my back into thinking it’s not tired, which in turn allows me to do more pull-ups. Three is still a pretty weak number, so by the end of the year I’d like to get back up to 5 continuous pull-ups. I’m not sure how aggressive that goal is so we’ll see where I stand come mid December.
On the flip side, I’ve noticed my explosive push ups have improved a bit. I still can’t do a full-on clap, but I’m getting a little more “air time” with my current sets.
