Ok, just getting started with this (second week). My wife has already made comments about my biceps. Woo!

First week I tried L2, realized that I needed to start from the beginning. So I'm starting my real tracking this week.

L1D1: 26* sets (7 full sets, 19 with pullups replaced by just lowering myself from bar)

I've been using only neutral grip for pullups, as it seems easiest for me. Is it ok to just continue with neutral grip until I get enough upper body strength to be doing real pullups on every set?

Back to level 2 this week (need to get better about logging!).

L2D1: 21 (11 real pullups, 10 substituted)
L2D2: 6:45 (substituted pullups for last 1 1/2 sets)
L2D3: 7:30 (substituted pullups for last 6 pullups)

Obviously, pullups are still my weak point. They are definitely getting better though. Not getting stress headaches from doing them anymore, as I was the first couple of workout days.
