    This morning I did Day 2 of the Chinup Project:
    10-0, 10-0, 10-0

    I just re-read the program and realized I am supposed to separate each set by an hour or more. Oops. I was separating them by 45 seconds. Oh well I'll start doing the hour rest between sets tomorrow.

    This morning I completed Workout B (7_2_B) as follows:

    Hypers 20-0
    Front Squats 5-95, 5-95, 5-95, 5-95, 5-95
    Incline BP 5-115, 5-115, 5-115, 5-115, 5-115
    DL 5-145, 5-145, 5-145
    Chinups 5-10, 5-10, 5-10, 5-10, 5-10
    MP 5-89, 5-89, 5-89, 5-89, 5-89
    Decline Situps 25-0

    This was the second workout of my deload week, so it was pretty easy. I'm looking forward to getting back to my regular weights next week. Since this week has been so light, I'm thinking about repeating my weights from last week when I resume next week, instead of adding to last weeks totals. I hate to delay an increase, but I think I might need to do that after lifting so light this week.

    Go Giants!!! What a game last night...

    Today on my lunch break I walked 2.52 miles in 47m:11s. The trail is a 1.2 mile loop around my office and involves several pretty good hills.

    I also did one set of 10 chinups during my walk. Every little bit helps...

    Someday I will be able to just casually do a set of 15 while the "tough" fat guy watches. Yes, I am bitter and have plans for world domination.
    Just show up. Move some iron. Put in the time. Eat enough food.

    Definitely. When I take my son to the playground I always try to take advantage of the monkey bars and do neutral grip chins. Lots of interesting possibilities for unique workouts on the play structures.

    That was my goal a few years back. I couldn't do one, but I just kept working at it and doing negatives, etc. until I could finally do them. The Recon Ron plan really helped me to increase my pullup/chin abilities. Now they are one of my favorite exercises.

    Tonight I did day 4 of the Chinup project and did 3 sets of 10 chins.

    I'm ready to do the final workout of my deload week tomorrow morning and then get back to my real weights on Monday.

    DNG wouldn't let me, said I had to do more squats instead.

    Looks like my cardio tonight is getting home before 5pm, hoping for a good outcome tonight!

    Squats 5-135, 5-135, 5-135, 5-135 5-135
    BP 5-135, 5-135, 5-135, 5-135 5-135
    SLDL 5-135, 5-135, 5-135

    This was the final workout of my deload week so next week it will be back to business as usual. I completed another day of the Chinup Project and that felt good. Tomorrow is my test day for that, where I do as many as I can in 5 minutes, so I'm excited to see how that goes.

    Probably sound advice. Nothing like a good set of squats (or 10 sets) first thing in the morning to start the day off with a bang!

    Me too. Those 5 pm games are tough to get home for...I've been having to leave work a little early a lot lately. My jogging has really been falling by the wayside during the playoffs. Luckily I'm able to get a good walk in during my lunch break at work a few days a week. Doing my cardio outside really helps to clear my mind more than anything else.

    Thanks. It's something I've really had to work at. I used to hate the feeling of hanging from the chinup bar in the gym and not being able to crank one out, so I avoided them for a long time. Once I started working out at home, though, I was able to forget about that and just start to focus on making progress.

    Good stuff PRG. Just one word of warning. Chin-ups are absolutely great, and going from 0 - 10 reps etc is great progression. But a lot of this pull-up chin-up programs that use very regular high rep programming should come with a health warning. There was a thread in here a while back called the Chin-Up Challenge, and a bunch of us O35s were doing a few hundred a week. The injury level after about 3 - 4 weeks was huge. I got awful tendinitis in my elbow and haven't been able to chin-up since (about 9 months). I'm not saying you will hurt yourself - I'm just saying if you get the slightest twinge in your elbow, back of straight away and watch it like a hawk.

    Meanwhile congrats on the progression to date. As GKC said 3 x 10 is great going.

    Thanks for the advice. I really appreciate it and I'll be sure to keep an eye out for any sign of that. I definitely don't want to stall my overall progress by overdoing it in one area.

    Btw, I remember seeing that thread a while back. I'll have to go back and look through it to find out more about what you guys were experiencing with it.

    Yeah...it's in the top of the 9th right now and we're still down by 1. Hopefully we can hold them and then score in the bottom half.

    This morning I ran 4.92 miles in 57m:07s. I originally planned on going 6-7 miles but it was pouring rain and windy so this run wound up being plenty long for me.

    I also did my first week "test" for the Chinup project workout. I did 50 chins in 5 minutes. I am paying special attention to form and looking out for elbow pain following Flounderbout's warning/advice. So far so good, but at the first sign of discomfort I'll call that off as I don't want to mess up progress on my core 5x5 program.

    Go Giants! I'm really hoping for good things tonight.

    This morning I completed workout A (8_1_A) as follows:

    Hypers 20-0
    Squats 5-145, 5-195, 5-235, 5-235, 5-235
    BP 5-135, 5-179, 5-200, 5-200, 5-200
    SLDL 5-145, 5-185, 5-230
    Wide Grip Pullups 5-10, 5-15, 5-17.5, 5-17.5, 5-17.5
    Rows 5-175, 5-175, 5-175
    Fat Bar MP 5-79, 5-101, 5-123, 5-123, 5-123
    Leg Raises 25-0

    Overall a good workout. It was a little tough getting back to regular working weights after last weeks deload, but once I got going (especially on squats) it felt good.

    Was really jazzed about the Giants game last night, but all the excitement left me pretty exhausted this morning.

    I almost missed my workout today too. Man it was tough to get up and get going.

    The squats ARE getting heavy. My program goes in 7 week cycles and I am just at the beginning of a new one. By the end of it (in 7 weeks) my squat is supposed to be up to 285. We'll see what happens, but 235 was a little rough this morning for sure.

    Today at lunch I walked 2.32 miles in 47m:20s, on the hilly trail at work.

    I also completed the final 2 sets of 10 chinups for my Chinup project daily workout (total 3 sets of 10).

    Today I did 3 sets of 10 chins for my Chinup project daily workout.

    Luckily the last set helped me work out some of the stress/disappointment from tonight's Giant's game. Oh well, we'll get them tomorrow. Go Giants!
