Yay! This morning I did my first pull-up!
After one of my readers expressed doubt whether or not it was healthy to work out after breakfast, today I did something different. I ate breakfast after my workout routine.
As it turned out, it was easier for me to exercise. I felt lighter.
So the first thing I did when I went outside to my garden was to put on my fitness gloves and jump on those rings. It felt great so I tried to do one pull-up. It worked!
Afterward, even without a rest I decided to do a 20 second dead hang. Remember, yesterday I held it for 10 seconds. Without food in my stomach and with those special gloves I did it without too much stress. Then I went to pick up some fallen apples in the garden.
So I repeated my 20 second dead hang routine 4 more times with 2 minute rest in between all the while walking around the garden and picking up apples.
The last set was naturally the hardest. At first, I didn’t think I could make it. I thought my fingers would slip. But then with these gloves the grip held OK.
So all it took for me those 10 minutes of exercise and now I’m 4 days closer to my goal of 10 pull-ups!
Will I be able to do 2 pull-ups tomorrow? I highly doubt it but we’ll see.
