Pull Ups (ok, actually Chin Ups)... November 2010

Thursday, November 04, 2010

I can actually do 2 (and a half) chin ups! I know I'm kicking my feet, but I can do it!! yay!!! I'm so excited! I just looked back and the first video I took was in July... didn't even come close to doing 1! Sept. I could do 1 starting from my tip toes. and now I can do 2 (and a half) totally by myself!
(sorry... I have no idea how to turn a video... pics I can, but cannot figure out video!? ...will take another one next week, the right way!)

    You go girl!!!
I can't even imagine it. My legs are fairly strong... my arms are whimpy!!!

I don't know that you can turn the video... I try to remember to take them the right way too... Sometimes I turn mid video ~ slowly as to not make myself dizzy!!!

I am impressed!!! emoticon

    So cool. I haven't attempted one of those since probably high school. My arms don't take a lot to look sculpted, but having the actual strength and power in them is another story. I always have pain in my shoulders and wrists, so have a hard time keeping up with an intensive upper body regime. Something I definitely should work on after my half marathon this month.
