Chin-ups didn’t suck.

I wanted to get back on the chin-up front because why not. They’ll add some volume, and I haven’t given up on not sucking at doing them. Today was surprising because I think I hit more chins today than I ever have. Sure, spread across 5 sets, but so often it winds up being a first set that’s nice, then a bunch of singles because I suck. I’m sure being less fat (and a little stronger) help, so yeah… being even less fat later on should also be a boon here. I used to look forward to the day when I could bang out 5 in a row without a problem, but now I look forward to 10.

Changed up the biceps work slightly. This seems to work better, having a bit of a heavier exercise first, then the 350-method work to get some reps in. We’ll see how it goes long-term.

I also spent 15 minutes on the elliptical at the end. It was thunderstorming when I was going to the gym, so I drove instead of walked. It’s not much walking usually, but I’m sure it contributes somehow to my overall calorie burn in a day… I am on track to hit 235 for a clean 30 lb. loss by the end of the year, and I want to ensure I actually hit that and maybe a little more (maybe 32).
