As with most things, if I don't make myself a plan it isn't going to happen. So - here goes!
Week 1 (this week):
-Isometric hold: Hold chin above bar for as long as I can, up to 60 seconds
-Once I can hold my chin above the bar for 60 seconds, then try Negatives
-Start body weight rows (AKA inverted rows), alternating overhand and underhand each lifting session. Find a bar at a height that is challenging to do 3 sets of 8 reps (bend knees and put feet flat on the floor if it's too difficult - or drop hips). Then, keep lowering it to make the 3x8 reps harder!
I need to find a low bar for this... hmmm...
-Try assisted pull-ups and chin ups with a chair, alternating type each lifting session.
Giving myself two weeks to work on the things above and try a run/jump to pull-up.
Try underhand pull-ups! Later that week, test overhand pull-ups!
I'd love to have some of you try along with me. Want to join me on the 1-pull-up-goal quest? Comment here!
I'll post a video or picture by Jan 1st with my progress - you can check in with your progress then too!
