…before you laugh know that I have a LT membership at Golds, I am 48, I own 4 companies, 3 homes, lots of land,married for 28 years with a grandchild,an industry forum,do 60 hours of volontary work each month. I am happy and successful. I am happy with my work out progress. However I have started a new project and my time will be constrained for 6 months. So I bought the Iron Gym pull up bar. It is quick, easy and convieniant.
Thats how I want my workouts to stay for the next 6 months regardless of what anyone says here about lower body work, proportinal issues and other negativity. I lurk frequently but don’t usually post because of the bashing anyone gets for asking a question out of the ordinary. I am hoping someone will grant my wish and answer intelligently. So here are my questions;
1)How often can I do pullups? Since I have it at my office I can take calls on speaker phone and still do pullups.
2)Can I overtrain doing strictly pullups? I can do them as often as I want thruout the day.
3)Can I do the pushups on pullup days? You can do a variety of pushups with it too.
Well there you have it fellow ironmates. I have had it for 5 weeks now and my wife says my back looks better than it ever has. I workout every other day doing the 3 types of pullups it prescribes. 1st week 1 set of each.(Total sets 3) 2nd week 2 sets of each.(total sets 6) 3rd week 3 sets of each. (toatal sets 9) 4th week 4 sets of each. (total sets 12)
So now I am at week 5 and at a crossroad. I do each set to failure, and rest 1 min between each set. I alternate the different grips each workout. I love pullups and would do them all day if it wouldnt be a problem.
So there you have it. Answers appreciated.
