Pull up


After having worked out for so many years, finally I was able to do pull up without any assistance, in fact, I was able to do multiple sets towards the end of my workout today..which actually made it even harder.. don't know why.. all of a sudden I just wanted to try.. so I didn't use the pull up station.. just walked up to the pull up bar, grabbed it(just like a gymnast), closed my eyes, focused, then I pulled.. wow, it was so easy...not sure where that strength came from.. in fact I tried that last weekend and I still couldn't do it....together with dipping, I can finally do both of these strength building exercises without any help...

do you have a pull-up bar at home? doing pull-ups is perhaps one of the best workouts for your back. i have my own pull-up bar and try to do pull ups often, though it's not often enough. i'll bring when i come to visit, and we can do some pull-ups at your place to practice.
