I was recently in a Chin-Up contest sponsored by the US Marines. I won the contest (otherwise I would not be on here telling you about it) by doing 31 dead hang chins.(this is at the advanced age of 48!) For the few people who may not know the term dead hang it means all the way down arms locked out.
My qeustion is this: Do any of you have any ideas on how to train in order for me to achieve a gain of say 5 or 6 over the next 12 months? The look on my sons face when I won the contest is worth training all year for.
Any ideas as to sets and reps would be appreciated. I have been training by doing 3 sets of 20 with a 2 min rest between. Then two sets of either negatives, with a 10lb weight belt or half reps (top half) with a 10lb belt.
While I am probably twice the age of the average Testosterone reader I still enjoy training as much as I ever have. And thank God I am healthy enough to give it my all (5' 10" 190lbs- body fat 11%).
Thanks for reading my post and for any help that might be coming my way.
