first off, hello all...stumbled upon this site while look for some low impact workout routines (knees and ankles are shot after years of skateboarding abuse). Anyway, the time factor involved is what I find so intriguing about this method, as it seems like something I can easily incorporate into my mornings before work...while I'm still somewhat motivated
anyway, enough about that and back to my question: currently I have an older weight station/machine thing that has a pulldown bar on it...would this be adequate as a pullup sub (assuming it'd still be the 3:1 ratio) until I can get the money (and probably strength) together for a proper bar? Currently I can near max out on the weights comfortably for about 10 reps...but due to the compound nature (and my losing of the manual)...I'm not sure what that actually translates into in real world weight.
thanks in advance for any input, and if that solution will work I intend to start my log this coming monday.
p.s. would incorporating some weight lifting with a curl bar (only around 50lbs.) be beneficial at all to what is already listed in the program...or is that rather unnecessary?
