I am with you I can not do a chin up, but I can do an assisted pull up using the machine. That to me is awesome hopefully eventually we will be able to do chin ups/pull ups unassisted. One thing I am working on is a full push up. I can do a declined push up. and half of a regular push up. But if i go more then half way down I do not have the strength to push myself back up.

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

I don't go to a gym - but one thing I cannot do is a chin up. Couldnt do one to save my life! I have a bar in my closet doorway and I've tried- just not there yet. Upper body is weak as water and i hurt myself trying the last time. Got to do the strength training more often - so there's my new challenge now I suppose.

We are not old until regrets start taking the place of dreams.

This is good. And there were about 4 things I swore I would never do when joining the gym. The lying leg press, the pull up machine, the ab chair, and classes in general other then water aerobics. Well needless to say after about a month I was using the leg press. After about 6 months I was using the pull up machine, and after about 2 years I was doing everything classes and all. This leave the door wide open. and I love the options. Let me just say you can do it!
