workout for today:

warmup: 50 pushups (hehe, my chest still sores from the workout 3 days ago)
Barbell Military Press (this is the same as overhead press, isn't it?)9,5x8x3, 12x8x2
Deadlifts 17x8x2, 19,5x8x1
i wasn't able to do one single pull-up (i now have a bar to put in between doors like willpeavy suggested) how can i improve my strength so that i am able to do them? that's kinda frustrating...

I don't know how to improve, but keep trying. I could do only 1 pull up some weeks ago. Now I can do 50 within one session, but only max. 5 reps in a row.

Nobbi, that's a contradiction in itself!
Some weeks ago only one, and now several sets of 5! ;) Good job :)

Lelle, start with trying chin ups (palms towards your face), that's a bit easier. Just keep trying. In the beginning, you can place a chair behind you and help yourself up with your feet, then do a negative rep (= try to lower yourself as slowly as possible).
No one said it would be easy.

It happens sometimes, don't let it get you down. In the end your results will come from what you do most of the time, not the occassional lapse.
