The Pull-Up Bar

Pull-Up Bar - Bicep Pull-Up Pull-Up Bar - Lat Pull-Up I recently bought P90X, trainer Tony Horton’s set of extreme workouts.  I’d been thinking about it for over a year now and finally broke down and got it.  I also invested in the optional pull-up bar, which my wonderful BF assembled and installed for me this past weekend.  In case you’re wondering, it easily fits in any doorway and is removable.

I’m holding off on beginning the full-fledged program.  I have some stuff coming up in the next month or so that will keep me from doing it consistently.  I plan to begin the program in September.  In the meantime, though, I’ve tried the CardioX workout and will sample the other ones soon. I’ve also been doing a couple of pull-ups a day, just to get started.  Although my arms are getting stronger, my upper body has never been a powerhouse.  I can do one decent underhanded pull-up and manage a little bit of lift on the other styles, but that’s about it.  Still, the fact that I even have a pull-up bar in my place is pretty extraordinary, considering the non-athletic person I used to be.

In addition to the standard pull-ups, I’ve done a few leg exercises, too.  Every little bit helps, and every time you change up the way you use your muscles, it’s good.

    P90X is awesome! I did it and you will love it. Definitely dedicate yourself to doing that hour every single day and stay disciplined.

    Kenpo, Ab Ripper X, and Cardio X are good tastes to flirt with in the meantime
