No weight I was just cold earlier so I did a few exercises to get warmer.

Edit:
2502+20=2522
Two sets twenty pounds.

Some of these were various drills done for low reps, working towards a one-arm chin. Ended with a set of 16 standard chins.

Good luck on the one arm chin up. I've never been able to get close to one of those.

Top set: 55lbx6. Lost a couple of pounds, making chins easier, but making my upcoming deadlift PR attempt a bit worrying.

Lost a little more weight and failed my deadlift PR attempt, and ran out of time to do weighted chins at the gym. Did three unweighted sets instead.

First pull-ups ever! (Actually, chin ups, if you're being pedantic; 4 of them on Monday, 5 yesterday, still pretty happy about it.)

Unweighted set of 10 a couple of days ago to work out a kink in my right trapezius. Escalating weighted chins today, up to 3x3 at 70lb. Attempted #4 on one of the sets, but didn't quite get high enough to call it a good rep.

Didn't have time for weighted chins at the gym today, so I did some unweighted chins at work. PR. I guess heavy low-volume chinning has some carryover.

EDIT:
2865+19=2884
Ascending weighted sets, up to 70lbx4 (PR). I'm starting to smell that 90lb single.

up to 70lb


goddamn. grats Nath.

3075 + 19 = 3094.

Still unweighted and over 3 sets, but I've been gaining like 0.5 - 1 lb per week. Woo.
The time and seasons go on, but all the rhymes and reasons are wrong
I know I'll discover after its all said and done I should've been a nun.

Math's off. Did you do 26 or 16?

31x0+18=31(x+1)8, where x is 1 or 2.
Top set: 75lbx3.

I'm guessing it was a matter of forgetting to carry the one.

3138+39=3177

2x12 with 20 lbs. plus 15 unweighted I did the other night after coming back from the bars.

Edit:

3177+21=3198

2 sets 25 lbs.

Edit 2: woops. I flipped the one and the three at the front of the number. Fixed now.

Top set: 80lbx3. Planning to go for a max single by year's end. At least 90; maybe 100.

EDIT: damn; twerked something in my right shoulder, possibly during that 80lbx3. Either way, I've taken a few days off heavy chins. Did some unweighted chins and pull-ups to get some blood flowing through the area.
3267+33=3300
That 1RM is going to have to wait until next year.

Shoulder healed. Did a few unweighted chins to test the waters, and then worked up to a heavy single at 90lb.
