Get Your Chin Over the Bar

Rest day today. I walked a quick 18 holes of golf this morning.

Jumped out in the garage for some sets of strict pull-ups, with varying grip widths. Can’t hurt right? I rested plenty between sets as I came in to the house and did some stuff before going back out for another set.

  • 6 (as wide as possible on the rack)
  • 8 (2″ closer)
  • 9 (another 2″ closer)
  • 8 (just outside normal grip)
  • 9 (normal grip)

Damn that wide grip is tough! I like the idea of hitting different grip widths to address slightly different areas on each set. 40 total reps. My grip was starting to slide more than anything on each set. Probably a really good grip builder as well as building up the pulling strength.
