[QUOTE=Scott Jenkins;635779]50 chest to bars without coming off the bar is elite my friend, before starting C2B's myself I was trying to build up to 50 normal kipping pull ups and was far from doing it, probably around 35 was my max, at chest to bar 23 is my current PR. You could probably give Speal a run for hes money on C2B's.[/QUOTE]

I don't know about that. Speal us unhuman.

You still got the strong numbers across the board Nik, I am actually looking forward to doing it tomorrow. Definately get your back foam rolled, I find the best thing for lower back is two tennis balls in a sock and put them either side of your spine, really gets in deeper. Also if you have a chance google 'Pigeon Pose', its a yoga stretch I discovered yesterday that really works well on the hip flexors and glutes.

Good consistent numbers Nik. I'm pretty sure you'll be feeling these strength days more the next day now that you've changed up to the max volume method.

Ok so I missed ''JT'' I had a terreble weekend, that pretty much ended in injury.

So I had a 1991 Nissan 240 SX, nice car, I have been working on it for years. I also have a 1990 240 SX as well, pretty beat up. Well My ''nice'' car decided to try to throw a rod. I got a huge engine knock on the road home sat and I had my 2yo son with me. We barely made it home. This was yesterday.

So in a pannic I had to get my beatup car back on the road, I spent my day under the hood. I ended up getting it running pretty good. But I either pulled or hurt my left lat muscle or mildly messed up a rib. I am hurting pretty bad from it. I had to take ibuprofen, I told myself i wouldn't take it ever againg as I understand that it isn't good for muscle groth ect.
I lived off the stuff for a long time when my lower back as really bad.

So I'm glad it is a rest day. I HOPE I will be able to workout Tuesday. I could go on about it but I wont.

Nice squat numbers Nik, i think you will get me on that one. Sucks to hear about your car experience and your injury this weekend. I know it must have sucked being scared like that with your son in the car. I always fear of things like that happening to me when I'm driving with my daughter in the car.

Thanks man. The only thing was that I didn't even have my phone, so if the car would have died, we would have really been walking. Which wouldnt have been a big deal, but it would have sucked for Martin.

10:00 break
"J.T."

21-15-9 reps of:
Handstand push-ups
Ring dips
Push-ups
time 13:28

HSPU's to ab matt, push press width.

first round was good, second round was a killer. It really slowed down there. push ups were hard due to my back.
My back feels like someone punched the crap out of my ribs on the left side, maybe I brused something, I don't know. But I needed a workout, I needed a reward after this weekend. I'm glad I got throught it.
