Chin-up day. I'm still working on achieving my first chin-up. I have a pull-up bar mounted on some beams at exactly the height I can grip while standing barefoot under it. I have a set of eight 12" pieces of 2x10s. I stand on the floor and pull myself up as high as I can, then hold for 5 seconds. I put a piece of 2x10 under the bar and a minute later I pull up again. I repeat until I am done. Each time I add a piece of 2x10 to the stack, I can go higher, until with the full stack (12") I can pull myself up to the point where my chin is up to the bar.
Usually by the time I have finished this I am too tired to do any more.
I do this every other day, and each workout I get stronger. My shoulder development is truly impressive. I hope to be doing chin-ups in a month or two, at which point I will begin working on pull-ups.
I also did some light squats, which I have gotten accustomed to doing as part of my daily activity, rather than as a "workout". I may add weight to the empty Olympic bar in the near future, as it is getting easy.
I am thinking of going for a 4.5 mile walk in the cold. What is an IF for, if not to burn calories during your morning workout?
