Got my chin-up bar assembled...

Sunday, August 26, 2012

Well, my husband got my chin-up bar assembled today, and after trying to do a pull-up on it I can tell I'm definitely going to have to use something to give me a little leverage until I get stronger. I may purchase a chin-up max or other chin-up assist device, because I don't really have a chair that's sturdy enough to use for the chin-up and pull-up exercises. Tried using my aerobic step, but that doesn't give me enough leverage even witht he risers under it...

    good luck with figuring it out. I'm sure you will. I decided to just use resistance bands for probably a long time because i know i can't lift myself up either. But i am a lot heavier too. You are at a pretty healthy weight so i'm sure you will be doing pullups before long!
