6-25-11: Chinups

6-25-11, Saturday


Bodyweight was 218lbs.  About 3lbs heavier than I have been lately.  Working a bunch of overtime and eating lots of ice cream.  Add the two together and apparently you have weight gain, haha.   



Rested 11 minutes between sets.  2 sets of 5 reps is the best I’ve done since being able to do a single pullup again less than two months ago.  I was happy just to get a single set of 5 reps recently.  The 5 reps were hard on each set though.  Shoulder protested from the first rep on both sets so I cut my losses and didn’t go for 3 sets of 5 reps.
