How are we doing pull-ups, guys? overhand (Marine style) or underhand (palm facing you -easier?).
Overhand is considered the standard. It works your back and shoulders more than the underhand (palm facing you as you grip the bar). 100 push ups and about 13 pull ups (overhand).
Tip -do 50 pushups a day for 10 days. Results are amazing. Oh.. a little flashback from Full Metal Jacket to get you in the mood:
In the Vietnam war movie Full Metal Jacket, there is a scene where Private Joker has a peace symbol on his body armor and “Born to Kill” written on his helmet. A colonel sees this and chews him out.
The colonel asks Joker why he would have a peace button and write “Born to Kill” on his helmet...
Private Joker replies, “I think I was trying to suggest something about the duality of man, sir.”
“The what?” says the colonel.
“The duality of man. The Jungian thing, sir.”
“Whose side are you on?” responds the colonel.
“Our side, sir.”
“Don't you love your country?”
“Then how about getting with the program? Why don't you jump on the team and come on in for the big win?”
