I was feeling good in the gym this afternoon and at the end of my workout I was fooling around trying to do a one-arm chinup. (I deadlifted 110kg which is my new PB!)
I could hang for a while but couldnt move more than an inch (and it was just my shoulder shrugging up a bit).
But then a fellow lifter said when he is rock climbing and he needs to pull himself up wih just one arm he holds his working arm wrist with his free hand.
Magic! I shot up like a rocket. 3x3x3 no rest, alternating each arm - very exciting.
So what's the deal? I could definately feel one arm working harder than the other but directly afterwards my pecs were very sore. I was some how using my pecs for a chin? Confusing.
Does anyone know the science behind this superman strength?
And who here can/is trying to perform one arm chins/pullups? What is/was your training plan like?
One arm chins would just be a kick arse party piece!
