have you considered using bands for that little bit of assistance. I have found that the stimulus from bands as compared to a gravitron machine is much much better..

Carter,

Thanks again for the vote of confidence! Sure always appreciate your encouragement! I must be stubborn - - never have used the bands and tend to like doing static holds and negatives to increase my PU strength. Maybe it's time to dump the recalcitrant attitude and step into a band or two......Yeah - - I hate the Gravitron - - too much assist through parts of the ROM, or not enough, depending on the selected assist weight.....

I'm really gonna start hitting the strength stuff hard, including the pull-up work. I know I can do it....just have to work a bit harder.

Have a great day!

Re: Steve's "I'm not aging quietly" log

090324 TUESDAY

Training Class at Globo.

Warm-up:
Stairmaster (subbed for treadmill):
10:00, L2 - L8, HR to 125 or so.
Shoulder pass thrus - 10 X 1
Body circles - 5 ea direction
Trunk Rotations - 5 ea direction.

Class training: Medicine ball cleans - rudiments

Class WOD: For time:
100 Wall Ball shots - 14#
100 Ab mat sit-ups.
Partition as desired to total target numbers.
(Did 4 rounds by 25 reps of each).
TIME: 7:18

Additional work:

Pull-ups: Mixed grip and a few kips thown in...
5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 4 + 1, 6, 6 = 52 total.
(Think this is the first time I've gotten 6 in a row. Surprised I repeated that a few minutes later)!

Clean and Jerk:
WU: 45# cleans X 10
45# C & J X 5
95# X 5
Work sets:
135# X F, F, F, F.
(Thought I could do these - - the 95# WU were easy!) Dropped to 115#....
115# X F, 1, 1
120# X 1, 1, 1
125# (ties PR) X F, 1, F, F.
(Lost my focus doing these. Did not pull hard consistently "through" my heels, hip drive was weak, and had slow arms/a slow drop. On the other hand, jerks were solid all the way).

Thanks, Carter! I was reading Gus' post (at least, I think it was Gus) who was explaining how hard it was to get decent bumper plates and bars there in Australia. I'm rather surprised that sporting goods (bars, rowers, etc.) are hard to come by there - - you have such a sports-minded populous; at a minimum, top ranked soccer and rugby teams and lots of great athletes.

I know here in California, it seems the pre-owned C2s are getting harder and harder to come by at a decent price. Most people are asking within $200 or less of brand new.....hardly worth it, since Concept 2 ships the rowers free from Vermont. Go figure.

Great work recently Stephen. Good CJ numbers, just gotta keep hitting that pull, especially if your jerks were solid, that can be the weakness for some.

And congrats on getting you C2, there amazing. iv got link to some great C2 drills if you want it. Put you through your paces?!
