No, I wasn’t able to continue the pace set from yesterday. I mean I didn’t do 2 pull-ups at the first try. Yesterday I did total of 4 pull-ups. But today I did 5! Let me tell you how I did it.
After writing an article in the morning before breakfast, I went to the garden and jumped on the rings. I felt quite sure I could do 2 pull-ups right away. But I decided to settle for 1 instead. After all, it was morning and my body was stiff so it was better to start small.
Then I picked up some apples for 2 minutes and came back to the rings. My initial plan was to attempt 2 pull-ups with the second try but I decided I could do 1 pull-up but 5 times with 2 minute rests in between.
It worked! Until set 3 it was OK but 4th and 5th time were kind of forced. The form wasn’t there and I did help myself with the motion from the legs.
Nevertheless, now I know where I’ll go from there. Starting from tomorrow I will strengthen my 4th and 5th set and after they become easy, I will attempt to do 2 pull-ups on the last set.
No forcing, only when I feel I’m ready. This day might come sooner than I think.
