I have to be honest. I was not looking forward to the unending pull ups I had planned for myself in yesterday’s Legs & Back routine. Although it was not a goal at the beginning of this round, as my cumulative weekly pull ups increased and 300 came within my sight, it became a sort of unstated goal. Last week, my addled mind, having lost the ability to perform lower math functions, left me 3 short of 300. This week, I steeled myself and paced the Back & Biceps and Legs & Back routines to try once again. And it was a success. After I dropped down from my final pull up, I had achieved 315 cumulative, unassisted pull ups for the week. Of course, I’ve sacrificed all upper body movement capability in the short-term. But it’s a good feeling.
This ends my resistance routines as I get ready to embark on another recovery week. When I get back into the pull up routines, I may opt to scale it back and focus on other body parts. We’ll see.
