OK, so tonight I pulled out my one-arm-assist pull-up assistant, and did a bunch of one-armed pull ups.  If "6" can be called "a bunch".  Then I tried doing them without the assist.  LOL!  Got two.  Not so bad.  After that I figured I was on a roll, and I already knew I wouldn't be able to beat my standard pull up record this week, so I started trying some of the others.  The half-pull up was much harder than I thought it would be, and the archer pull up?  Well let's just say that that was harder than the assisted one-arm pull up.  Geez!  Anyway, that's that.  Off to ski in the morning so I'm packing it in.  If I can still reach the bar tomorrow night, I'll try again.  There's still jumping negatives and plain old negatives to go...

Tried eccentric pull ups tonight. Didn't quite manage to jump all the way up, but I went slow on the way down, so that's half a rep, right?

I'll see if I can get a step stool or something tomorrow and do some negatives before time runs out. Been dealing with sick family all week, so haven't had as much time to exercise as normal.

HOLD ON! It is Monday. I've got the highest score! And I didn't even spam this one with endless reps of easy stuff. WTF? People must be slacking off.

 

 Yeah, I discovered this week that an already over packed schedule combined with an abundance of social activities negates the possibility of an effective workout routine -so now I'm exhausted but without the benefits of more muscle mass/endurance or knowing my max rep ability.  :numbness:  Color me chagrined. But kudos to everyone for all your hard work, especially for those suffering an evil onset of DOMS.  :playful:

 Did not end up having any juice with which to test any more of the things I planned to test argh. Aerial rehearsal officially owns my pulling muscles for the next three weeks. So I did a lot of pulling stuff at least...just not things I could count and put on a spreadsheet! :)

So yeah, pretty good score considering I didn't do hardly ANY of the easier parts of the progression.  Not bad, I say, not bad.  Didn't think I could still do a one-armed pull up, and yet, there they are.

OK WHAT THE HECK JUST HAPPENED?

 

I have to admit, I didn't look at the tally sheet since this morning.  How did I get to the top???  Bonus points awarded for video should have been less than or equal to 5, right?  How did I get all those bonus points?????

They're not ALL based on the videos, however.  If you look back, you'll see bonus points across the board.... the formula changes weekly~

And this is one of the reasons you got a bonus. :D
