Re: pushups and pullups while injured

@Mike-thanks for the reminder. I have been feeling a little tight through the upper body. Have to take better care of that!

@Eric- I have been doing the 150 pullups and pushups throughout the day. When ever I approach the bar at my home I might do between 1-5 sets of 10-15 pullups. With the pushups, i do sets of 20-25. After doing this for a week I for sure do feel a little over worked and know I must take a different approach. I would add some variations with the pushups but I'm still on crutches and trying to be careful not to aggravate the hip and slowly trying to get back in the swing of things. I just got the clearance from the surgeon to do some upper body, bodyweight work so may have jumped the gun a bit and not planned accordingly. So as for programming, do you think an every other day format would be more efficient? What are your thoughts?
