have you ever done negative only sets for pull ups? i find them good for increasing the amount of pull ups i can do! my friend couldnt do one pull til she started doing negatives and building up reps of those and progressed onto to pull ups then! :D


Never tried, no. I used to be able to increase reps fairly regularly with just doing normal pull ups...I've just gotta be patient now until I build up the strength again. I was using the gravitron yesterday and lifting only about 60% bw, so I'll gradually work my way up from there...Once I progress to unassissted pull ups I may try doing only negatives as a way to ease myself into it. I've actually been worried about that switch lol so this could prove quite useful.

Just got a letter - they couldn't even call and tell me - saying that my arthrogram is booked for June. So I get to go another 6 months like this without knowing what's wrong and just hope that this test will show what's wrong with me, and only after that can I even contemplate a solution. What an awful end to an awful week. :(

Chin up Sam, stay positive. Yeah that's a shitty time for the letter to arrive but on the plus side you have 6 months of technically being able to try and forget about it.

Just past midnight here, Christmas Day now. Hope you have a great holiday ~ go easy on the drink and cake (I know how you like both hahahaha). Take care MF.

Unfortunately, I have to many reminders of the issue, but I appreciate the optimism :)
I didn't have any cake! lol several cookies though...and pie. I got shit from my friends because I wasn't drinking, suppose I'll have to make up for it over new years. Heading out tomorrow to a friend's cottage for a few days, about 20 of us will be there. I haven't been to the gym in 2 weeks though...I was hoping to get there today, but between unpacking/re-packing, seeing my cats, meeting the boyfriend's friends, and getting sick AGAIN, I'm not to sure I'm going to make it...*sigh* Maybe tuesday/wednesday. *fingers crossed*

I (thankfully) got to the gym yesterday, chest is quite sore today :) Shoulder held up quite well, hips didn't like pull ups or cable rows, but other than that I'd say it was a decent session. I managed to get out 3 sets on bench going 3 down, 1 up, even though the last few weren't so powerful on the way up haha.
The only thing I had to adjust was for triceps..I did cable pull downs (3 sets), then went to do kickbacks and could only get 2 sets before both shoulders started crackling/popping, so I did one set of extensions instead of the third set of kickbacks. Triceps are definitely sore today.
Heading out soon to my friend's cottage...can't wait!
Happy new year, all! :)

lol I'm trying, anyway. Not sure that I'm being too successful at it, though. Not sure where my head has been at lately, or why I haven't been on here. I mostly just sleep and work, and sleep some more. How tired I've been has me a little worried, so I'm getting myself on a multi vitamin and trying to get my protein intake back up where it should be. Here's hoping that does the trick.
I have been getting back into the gym regularly as of late, and I figured out a fixed schedule to make sure it stays that way. Depending on the gym I'm in, I've been able to start benching more than just the bar (thank god!), but as I learned today, using more than 5lb for lateral shoulder raises still doesn't work very well. One thing at a time, I guess lol.

As far as my hip issues go, I got a call offering an earlier date for my arthrogram, which is awesome. I still have to wait another 4 months for it, but that's better than the expected 5.

Hope everyone is keeping well!
