Week 90 (Week 12 of L4.3) ending 02/28/15
D1: 26rds, D2: 07:34, D3: 05:11
Pull ups: 7,8,9 (0:45), 10,11 (0:27), 12,13 (0:29) 14 (0:20) 15 (0:18) 16 (0:20) (total 2:39)
Push ups: 25 (0:37),(10,6) (0:40) (total: 1:17)
Squats: 41 (01:15)
On D1: From rounds 11 to 27, I used to take break between two pull ups. I changed the tactic. Instead, I take a minute break between rounds and do two sets without a break. This seems to give longer rest for my elbows. Also, I decided not start the pull ups from full elbow extension. When I start and when I come down for another pull up, I am leaving elbows slightly bent. I am hoping that will reduce the strain on elbows. Either that worked or this is considered a short cut, but it seems to be slightly easier
My biceps are definitely feeling the pain.
On D2: 1:45 rest time. No breaks in 10 sets.
On D3: Did D3 only once. Leaving the elbows slightly bent during pull ups. I see the differences. I was able to pull myself up above the bar almost all the times. And it was easier. Am I building muscle or taking a short cut?
Please someone tell me, if I leaving the elbows slightly bent is the correct technique or is a short cut.
