    Clapping Chin-ups. How many can you do?

    I just wanted to encourage those who haven't tried it yet to give it a whirl. They're really fun! I can do about ten before I'm afraid I'll hurt my shoulders and stop.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    I get the injury risk on this one, but what's the danger of muscle-ups? I guess you could whack your head on the ceiling or something...

    Oh, and I'll answer the original question once my elbow heals up. I answered the question of whether I can do 1-handed chin-ups with my good wing last night and it was a resounding NO, so I have some new, fun mini-goals.

    muscle ups absolutely kill my rotator cuffs. i can feel the pain as i do even one. same thing with high pulls/upright rows. i may just be sensitive for that one, as i know that plenty of people do them without issue.

    Just 20, but the first 18 I'm feeling invincible. My muscles are WEIRD. I seem to have an easy time gaining strength at low reps, but have a VERY hard time getting my total reps up at all. I mean, how many other guys do you know who can do a one-armed chin-up, but only 20 normal chin-ups? It's just odd.

    Looking for somebody to lift people up onto a pedestal all day? Find somebody else or PUMP me full of electrolytes and mustard, and pray the cramps come later instead of during the work. But if you are losing your footing on a steep surface, I'm the guy you want grabbing you to pull you up.

    Yeah, this seems like a really great way to tear something up.

    You need to propel yourself higher in the pull-up part, then push down with your tricep before rotating your wrist. This'll alleviate the rotator cuff pain.
