5-25-11: Chinups

5-25-11, Wednesday


Did more testing before this workout and got the same results as the previous workout – the one where I performed my first chinup in more than a year.  Went with a double supinated grip for this workout.

Set my stopwatch and had the goal of doing 10 chinups in whatever time limit it took.  Just getting to 10 total reps after not being able to do any at all for so long felt like a triumph.  Didn’t care if it took all day.  Literally.  Because I had the day off. 

Bodyweight was 215lbs right before the workout started.

1st set) – 2 reps

2nd set) – 2 reps

3rd set) – 2 reps

4th set) – 1 rep

5th set) – 1 rep

6th set) – 1 rep

7th set) – 1 rep

Total time was 7 minutes on the dot.  Still a volume PR since my last workout was 6 total reps.  Probably a density PR too actually since I think my other workout took about 10 minutes.

Shoulder seemed to hurt a bit less than it did last time.  Not enough to go wild and crank out more chinups.  But enough to do some sets of doubles at first.
