For several days now I was itching to do my maximum number of pull-ups, just to see my progress. I could feel I could do more than 3, if I gave all I got at the first set.
Today, after I came home from the university I wanted to take out hedge twigs I cut last weekend to the special holding place for green waste. As I was putting the bags into the trunk of the car with my fitness gloves on, an idea came to me that I should use this opportunity and go to the rings right away.
So I finished with the bags, jumped on the rings and pulled myself up not 3, not 4 but 5 times! Yes, you’ve read it correctly! Today I did 5 pull-ups in a row…
Then I almost wanted to get into my car but thought what if I did my maximum number of pull-ups again. Maybe I would do more than 2? Sure enough, after resting a while, I did 3 pull-ups.
I repeated the same process 3 more times and completed 3, 2 and 1 repetitions of pull-ups with every set. So, 5-3-3-2-1 gave me the total number of 14 pull-ups. That’s my record so far.
Then I got into my car and drove to the green waste lot. My hands and chest were burning. Even my legs felt somewhat tired.
Will I be able to repeat the same set tomorrow?
