1145am – Max Pull-up Attempt

Total reps: 52
Notes: It was the first day of Marine Week here in Arizona State University (Downtown Campus). There was a Pull-Up challenge station and the winner would win a cool marine bag and free T-shirt. So Carpe Diem! Besides, my last attempt was last month and I only managed 28.

It is interesting to note that for the past few weeks, I did not even do much pull-ups training . I simply did muscle-ups and pull-ups for warm up before my workouts. So you can say I follow the “One Max Set A Day” training method as written in my guide to increasing your max pull-up count.
