Nope not the diapers. Pull-ups as in the activity you dreaded in gym class when you were in grade school. Friends, meet my worst enemy. So much that I have made it my goal to defeat it. Pull-ups with no weights whatsoever.
Last year Matt bought a pull-up bar for our condo and he makes doing pull-ups look so easy. I can't even do one without having the support of the machine that has weights to lift you up. In fact, a few years ago I couldn't even do that - whenever I used the machine my personal trainer would have to assist me by lifting me up just to make sure I could at least do one. Yeah, talk about fat kid.
So I made a deal with myself. This week, I'm going to work on doing (3) sets of 12 pull-ups with only 40 pounds to lift me up (right now I'm at 60). I'm going to show this pull-up machine who's boss!
