Death by Pull Ups sounds much more awful than it actually is. 🙂
The first minute you do 1, second minute you do 2, and so on.. up until you can’t do any more in that 60 second span of time.
I did 11, and then decided I was done, and that I didn’t want to do anymore. I was okay with that! That was banded, yes, but I was still happy. I felt pretty strong!
I had this incredible realization yesterday, and it might sound so stupid, but since my clean and jerk 1RM is only 140.. that means that I have to be around 140lbs to be able to do a pull up. Right?? If the most that I can push over my head is 140 pounds, then that should also be the most I can pull up on a bar, right? Doesn’t that make sense?? It does to me.. and that also means that I have a long ways to go. 🙁 Unless I keep pushing my 1 rep max higher, which is going to take months to do, and only happens in increments of 5 pounds anyway. fucking pull ups.
So… anyway, from positive to negative, yes. Sorry.
Our workout was good. Exhausting but that’s okay. That’s the idea.
20 hose slams (I’m really good at these!)
10 kb (55/35lbs)
8 pistols (used the band, don’t want to kill my knees)
I completed 4 full rounds, which I was happy with. My lats are a little sore, but that’s from the pull ups. I like it when my muscles remind me (just a little bit) that I did a workout the day before. When I’m not sore, I feel like I’m not doing enough sometimes, even though I’m dying during the workout, and my recovery is just really fast now, still.. It’s like if it doesn’t hurt a day later, you’re not doing enough. Awesome.
