I wondered now, that since I can do a few consecutive pull-ups, how long would it take me to do 100?
Another beautiful summer California day. I woke up groggy and sore from yesterday’s workout and whatever I chose to do today, a skate would be involved. As it turned out, I skated to and from the gym, about 40 minutes.
While at the gym I wanted to test myself at pull-ups. The goal: do 100 regardless of the time it took and how I got my chin over the bar. I started out with 10 and afterwards for most of the way, it was in short sets of 5, then 4 and the last two sets were 3′s. I was pleased that my time for the 100 was 23:00 flat. So that is my baseline. I’m thinking of doing this once a month.
Next, I took a trap bar and added 2×45# plates and collars, 135#, and did 3 sets of Farmer Walks at a distance of 280 feet for each set. The second and third sets I had to put it down after 3/4 through to readjust my grip as it was putting pressure on my callouses.
The skate back was enjoyable and would have stayed out longer had I not spent so much at the gym.
