What's a good exercise for pull up training?

Apparently it's about math - Addition.

Who needs pull ups when cycling? You might be doing it wrong. Or do you mean for long rides when bladder control is an issue?

I managed the last post in the last Addiction.

Reverse podium?

You mean these?

Trsnrtr 01-01-20 09:40 AM

I’d rock those. :thumb:

A good reason not to over-hydrate.

I tried working on pullups a couple years ago. Doubled my capabilities in 3 months. Went from 2 to 4.

Since you're starting from zero, the possibilities are infinite.

Kudos. I wasn't ready for the morning close curve ball.

So what did you do to improve? I don't have access to pull up bar most of the time.

indyfabz 01-01-20 10:32 AM

I think I'll go for a walk outside.

I'm approx 3 blocks from a pull-up bar, so I can try any time I want.

100 pushups a day should help a little. Doesn't hit the right muscles but some overlap.

If you have a resistance band there are a few exercises that hit similar muscles.

If your doorways have casework, you could try pullups on the that if you have (or want) rock-climber fingers. Careful, as I have torn casework off a doorway trying this.

Trsnrtr 01-01-20 10:42 AM

Maybe I’ll install a pull-up bar in my utility room, then again, maybe not. :rolleyes:

Assisted pull-ups.

How much return on one push-up a day? Asking for a friend. :innocent:

Trsnrtr 01-01-20 10:45 AM

Getting ready for my inaugural 2020 ride with my overweight and ancient trike buddies.

WhyFi 01-01-20 10:48 AM

I started year with a little 18-miler. Chest is a little congested and I'm a little fatigued. I'm thinking/hoping that it's not going to get any worse for the road trip home.

Trsnrtr 01-01-20 10:55 AM

I have a chocolate tolerance problem. I was allergic pre-puberty but can handle it now unless I eat too much... like around the holidays. A half dozen chocolate squares gives me chest buzzing followed by an upset stomach. As a child, I got hives that looked like ringworm and vomited from a single Hershey bar.

So, my wife is putting away Christmas decorations this morning and finds a sack of Ghiradelli chocolate squares. I ate 5 and now feel anxious and sick. It will pass in a couple hours. I told my wife to either hide the rest or throw them away.
