Thanks for the kind words of welcome and encouragement. I do look forward to that day of a real pull-up. My chief aims: avoiding injury and practicing optimal form. So L1 is still best for me in this next week, Week 3.
I’m 5’4, 175 lbs. (on an almost exclusively vegetarian diet)
I’ve been hiking 3 to 4 miles 2x per week for the past year. Dog walks in the neighborhood daily. Yoga 2x/wk. and just started pilates 1x/wk. Studied martial arts for 15 years but stopped four years ago.
These are great goals. I’m also a vegetarian. It’s generally much healthier, but you still have to be careful about the cheeses and carbs. My guess is that your martial arts foundation will start showing through pretty soon here.
I think getting the sleep is one of the hardest things for me.
On the plus side, I have been getting plenty of sleep. No problem with that goal right now. On the sub-optimal side, I’ve been sick with a bug for over a week. I did just go to Pilates today. I’ll start back on the body weight exercises tomorrow. I can be resilient that way.
