First Pull-Up!

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Went to a friend's house and they encouraged me to do a pull up and I did it in the doorway pull-up bar from standing (rather than from totally straight armed).

Either way, this is counting as my first pull up!

Age: 37
Weight: 170.6
Height: 5'8" (You'll perhaps notice I was 5'9" yesterday. Well, the doc set me straight :/ )

Just for recording purposes!!

    LMAO, yeah. When I was in the service, my ID card said 5' 11". And I weighed about 155 lbs.

    A few years ago I went to a new doctor who made me step on a scale that also had a height measurement gizmo attached. 5" 9" and 273 lbs. ROFL.

    I was wondering if I'd gain height if I lost weight ... you know ... the old joints expanding when they don't have to support all that weight.

    Answer: Uhhhhh, NAY. LOL.

    Hey Skinny, way to go. Pull-Ups are a great way to get humbled. Super upper body exercise. You should secretly buy a pull-up bar and practice at it. When set, go do some pull-ups at your friend's house a watch their amazement.
