This is the week I started the weighted part of my chin up program. The first day, I did my chin ups with an 8lb dumbbell between my knees. I didn’t think it was quite challenging enough so I switched to a 12lb dumbbell. I put that one in a backpack since it was heavy enough to be awkward when I tried to hold it between my knees. I have to say I was feeling pretty good about my strength and then I saw this!
Oh goodness! Now that’s what I call a serious weighted pull up! I think I’ll just pretend I never saw this. Now hand me that pink dumbbell and my Hello Kitty backpack and let me get back to work!
