Switched to a neutral grip for these just to mix it up. Felt okay.

26612 + 108 (yesterday) + 106 (today) = 26826

I do sets as part of 2-3 separate circuits, depending on the day, so I get about 5-10 minutes between sets.

In terms of muscle strength, I felt fine yesterday, and not so great today. But the real issue is that I think I've got a strained tendon in my left arm. I may have to let jet be the guy who routinely puts up the 100+ numbers for a while, unless I can somehow do one armed pullups. I could do 2 when I was nearly just as strong but weighed 20 lbs less. So... probably no dice.

Meanwhile my numbers are plummeting as I continue to pack on weight. Will be cutting again though in January and will get back to 100+ days.

Fok I get some mild soreness/tenderness in my left elbow when I do overhand or wide grip lat bar pullups because I jerk myself up too quickly so I have to slow it down. It afftects bicep too when I start to go heavy like 80 or 90 lb straight bar on the preacher. I find if I stretch the bicep well and start off with lighter weight to warm up it helps tremendously.

Of course if it's technically strained it won't be the same but maybe that'll help.

Get a wrap for it, should help.


Gonna stop doing pull ups for a while. Put more emphasis on rows, see if they have more carry over to the bench press.

Nah I don't wrap I have an iron grip even when I do rows and shit. I just jump up and start doing pullups after I'm set up. Cats get the stool, try to get grip all perfect and then start doing them half ass. You're at the gym to work you shouldn't need a stool so you don't have to jump LOL.

I need to get my bench up too need to rep 3 plates by next summer.

Yeah, it's probably the same strain. It definitely affects me when I dumbbell curl anywhere in excess of 40 lbs a hand, or yeah, use the easy curl at 80 lbs+ I try to not jerk myself up to quickly though, for pullups. I dunno. It's probably a variety of things. I usually do most of my strength and conditioning after cardio and sprints. I find that unless I'm warmed up already, pullups are murder, and I feel both sleepy and heavy. The other thing that I need to lay off for a while is the heavy bag, and also, padwork. Left hooks are definitely straining whatever is going on there.

Of course, my body is pretty stiff on a rest day, even if I do some things to keep the muscles a bit active. Actually, walking up and downstairs with sore achilles tendons has been tough on the old body, for years now.

I don't lift heavy enough to need grips, and I really don't like to have any aids (neoprene sleeces just keep stuff warm, so I don't think that they count) unless I absolutely need them. I just jump up and do pullups as well, unless the bar is ridiculously tall, in which case I'll use a stool. This has happened only at one place, and that bar was literally 9" high. I could barely grip the stupid bar, even while standing on a stool.

Not only does my elbow hurt, but did I not get any sleep last night, since the baby was fussy, but I think that I'm getting something (hopefully super mild, and mostly sleep deprivation related) I cut of the last 2 sets to bring up above 100, and I know that this was good for me. But still... ffffuuuu.gif
