More chin-ups, always good. 🙂

So ok, it’s still just 6 chins in a row, but hey… it’s more than before.

This was actually a pretty good back session. I dropped the weight on the BB rows because well, I really want to crank on the chins, which takes enough out of me, so prior weight on rows was getting more about the movement than the muscle. Dropping the weight, I had a much higher quality run of sets. In fact, all the back work today was really good and at the end of it felt really worked in my back muscles. I need more back sessions like this. More and more I find that back work is best when it’s in that 8-12 range, but even then not so heavy as to be more about moving from point A to point B… really need to ensure the back muscles are engaged and I’m working the muscle, not the movement. It’s hard to always think that way, since so much of my other work is about the movement, so just more things to work on.
