The Pull Up Machine

Monday, January 14, 2013

So I went to my new gym for the first time. It was awesome. It has a pool, steam room, sauna, cardio room, weight room, blah, blah, blah. Enough of the boring stuff. They have a pull up machine.
Ok, like everyone pull ups remind me of gym class when I was in junior high and we had to do the President's fitness test. I could always do the grand total of ooooonnnnnee. All the kids standing around, talking by their hands, all proud because they could do two.
Today I did 40!
Now, I'm not going to pretend that I'm so in shape that I was doing one handed pull ups without breaking a sweat. This machine allowed me to enter my weight and then decide how much of my own weight I wanted to lift. I only did the first level which is twenty pounds, but it was still hard and I was feeling the burn.
Truth is, I pretended I was back in middle school with all those people standing around, talking behind their hands about the super girl that did forty.
