Doing my first chinup through progressions

Recommended Posts

Set#1 (quarterpatials)… 10reps

Set#2 (quarterpartials).. 10reps

Set#3 (quarterpartials)… 20reps

Set#4 (hold@90)... 19sec

Set#5 (Deadhang)… 16sec

 

I know the numbers look a little bit better. but I really didn't feel that strong today.  I'm not sure why.  my exercise class resumed this week and it might have added a little new volume to my exercise routine.

Keep doing set #1 as quarter partials.   Advance sets #2 and #3 to half-range partials (Level 6).

Sorry for cutting in, but I have this feeling all the time doing my FPP from strongfirst. Despite numbers show progress across the board, I tend to think I'm too weak and because of that I struggle with the exercise. But what needs to be taken into equation - the "struggle level" remains mostly constant, but reps go up. Today I struggle with 7 reps, yet two weeks ago I struggled with 5. Noticing this can break this negative thinking (at least I try to tell it to myself).

You are doing really great Jason :encouragement:

speaking of perceived effort I actually felt a little stronger today than normal

 

half partials are a lot harder than quarter partials though

 

SEt#1 (quarterpartials)... 15reps

Set#2 (Halfpartials).... 5 reps

Set#3 (Halfpartials).... 6 reps

Set#4 (Holdat 90*).... 20sec

Set#5 (Deadhang)..... 20sec

 

just a notice @Hazard

 

I think I'm getting close to the end.

I want to try this routine for 1 MORE week (Monday Jan 20 and Friday Jan 24) with half partials as set 1,2,3  *

then I'm gonna blow you away with some of the nicest chinups you EVER saw!

 

all from dead hang; and I will do everything possible to get a good vid of it.

 

I'm feeling SO much stronger than I was when I started; its amazing!

 

I'm thinking I can probably do 3-5 Strict chinups consecutively.  and I truly couldn't do 1 when I started.  (without cheating).

 

* the plan is assuming I can break the half partials at 15 seconds, and preferably for 2 consecutive sets, by Jan24.

Stick with this setup for now.   Don't go too hard on Set #1 -- just use the quarter partials as a warmup, leaving some reps "in the tank".  Put your main efforts into the half-partials, Sets #2 and #3.

Today's workout.  1/20/2020

 

Set#1  Quarterpartials.... 10reps

Set#2  Half partials.....  8 reps

Set#3  Half partials..... 7 reps

Set#4  Holdat 90..... 22 sec

Set#5  Deadhang.... 12sec

 

not much of an improvement, is it?  it happens.

seriously, though, I will not try to "graduate" from these progressions until I can do better than this.

 

I'd like to see Half partials up to 15reps or so.

 

if Friday isn't there... I'll keep on training.

I've decided I'm not going to end training tomorrow and attempt a "graduation" of 5 pullups on monday 1/27

 

I don't think I got quite enough out of these progressions.

 

I will do one more week of progression training.

 

 

I fully intend to "graduate" by videoing AMRAP on Feb 3.

Looking good.   Time to bump your active pulling volume up a bit.   Switch set #4 to half--partials.

@TGP

 

Great work!   Thanks for sharing the vid.   It's fun to be able to see how all the effort you've consistently put into the training over the past two months has paid off.  I hope you're feeling very proud of yourself, because you should be.  👏👏👏
