40lbs help
Cheapo Thanks.The problem is the chin-up machine I use has increments of 15 pounds,That's why I went from 55-40
I moved up a level because my push-ups and squats are pretty good.
My pull-ups are coming ,the combination of losing wt and gaining strength.
Since jan 3rd I have lost 17 lbs, I still have about 30lbs more to go!!!
Thanks again.

To reduce assistance in 5lb increments, try adding 5lbs to your "weight" by strapping a 5lb dumbbell or plate to the knee pad on the pull-up machine.

Thanks Cheapo-the problem is the machine I do my Chin-ups on has increments of 15 lbs. ,that's why I went from 55lbs to 40 lbs
I moved up a level because I thought my push-ups and squats were good. My chin-ups are getting better, a combination of losing wt. and gaining strength.
Since Jan. 3rd I have lost 17 lbs,I have about 30 more to go!!!!
Thanks again!

Great work!!

No worries! the first un assisted pull up will be hard, but the grin will be big!

The rest come along far easier than the first!

Keep going!!
