Back to weights after a week off.  To avoid staleness I mixed things up a bit, though only a bit.  Neutral grip pull-ups: 3 x 6.  I then tried pull-ups with the palms-facing-away grip, 2 x 4.  These are a lot harder than the neutral grip ones, it’ll probably take a while until I’m up to sets of eight.  Some people like the palms-facing-you grip, but that’s just too hard on my wrists.  Overhead presses: 8 x 95, 8 x 105, 8 x 115.  It’s probably time for some direct shoulder work.  It was, I must say, a bit dismaying to realize how little weight I could manage on these, once again it will take some time to get up to decent weights.  Barbell rows: 3 x 8 x 195.  Pull-ups are of course excellent back work, but for a change I decided to add something else.  I finished with dips, 5 x 12 x bodyweight.

  1. Question: Have you ever tried resistance band training?

    Thinking about getting a beginners set to try at home, but not sure I would stick with it. Still it looks easy enough.

  2. I’ve never tried resistance bands, but I have heard that they can work quite well. Might be worth a try.
