This was a nice little met-con turned into met-strength for me. I have been dogging it on the pullups since Murph when I was just hurting like heck--Jerry critiqued my kip that day and said to work the strict/kip at low reps to gain more strength instead of killing my shoulder muscles and nerves. It has been almost 2 weeks since my last solid pullup workout and today I worked the weakness. I dialed back the reps and did all 45 reps without assistance and without hurting myself. I kipped up and tried a negative on the way down to not rip up my shoulders. I felt really good about them and when my kip is good, damn it is good. I just need to work on transition to the next rep. Tore another callous--any advice on how not to get blisters under them??
I HATE PUSHUPS. I'm so weak. I will totally admit I was not putting 100% into my pushups in either of the last two workouts with this exercise. I decided today was the day to work each rep to perfection...well, almost perfection. I just gritted my teeth and got it done.
