I'm a somewhat overweight guy who's typically better at playing hours of basketball than actually 'working out', as I seem to be very weak whenever I've actually pursued any sort of strength training throughout my life.
So recently I decided I wanted to start doing something at home, which would allow me to work out more often than going out to the gym to play ball has allowed - which I haven't done for months (for various reasons, injury being one of them).
Anyway, here's my first couple of days:
Code: Select all
Wk Lvl Day1 Day2 Day3
01 01 19 6:57
32 y/o male. 6'1" 230lbs
Felt great during and afterwards. I was feeling the first day's workout for about four days, so there was that much of a gap between day 1 and 2. Perhaps I shouldn't have waited - I don't know. I just wanted to take it slow at first.
Also, calling what I did 'pull-ups' would be generous to say the least. I had to jump and cheat like hell to do even a single pull, but I really felt it afterwards (even a little in my abs, strangely). And surprisingly , my pull-ups showed improvement on the second day of the workout.
I guess these are the easy, initial gains one gets when one goes from zero activity to any activity whatsoever ;)
Anyway, great site. Thanks. I'll keep you posted.
