Good work naples!

Suggestion for pull-up subs: Bent over rows with a heavy dumbbell. Think I'm going to try this next time.

Hey naples! Good workout!

When I sub for pullups, I find bodyrows to be the most suitable. They come close to bringing in all of the core muscles used in pullups.

Thanks for the suggestion, I actullay have been using dumbells during my workouts. I've been listing them as "rows" which I'm actullay doing the bent over version with 25# & 40# dumbells. They do work good and I usually feel they the entire length of my back instead of just the upper as with pull ups.

I haven't tried these yet but they do sound similar to the bent over rows I have been doing. I also use the lat pull down with wieghts trying to go as heavy as I can and still not irritate my arm. Thanks

Naples,

I'm dealing with tendonitis in my elbows too, but found I could do pull-ups pain-free if I used a parrallel (palms facing) grip. Try it, you might be pleasantly surprised. Also, since you seem to have access to a lat pull-down machine, you could sub part of the time with seated rows. Just to mix it up a little more. Variety within the basic movements builds balance and helps to prevent over-use injuries. (he said to late for his own elbows) :oops:

Nice score on the tabata push-ups. My best score was a 4 in the two times I tried. Tabatas will keep ya humble, that's for sure!

Rings are a great thing when your elbows hurt because they allow your arms to rotate properly, and of course ice is invaluable.

Tabata Squats
20,22,20,21,20,21,20,21= 20

Treadmill- 35 min 2.05 mile (5/1)

The elbow dosen't bother me when doing push ups, it s the act of pulling that hurts. Unfortunately I do not have access to rings. Thanks.

Consider using ice and maybe take a 2 week break from pulling, you do not want to develop tendinitis, it really sucks and is hard to get rid of took me around a year.

Tabata Bentover Rows w/ 50# (25# dumbells)
18,15,7,8,7,7,7,8= 7
Ab work
Back extensions 3x20

These were the hardest this week. Tomorrow will be a rest day as my chest is still sore from push ups and my legs are starting to feel the burn from yesterday. I will start back with L4D1 for week two to improve on times.
