Pull-Ups: My Body Never Ceases to Amaze Me

Life has been a little busy and it has taken a toll on both Steve’s and my energy sources, so we chose to take about three weeks off from working out to let our bodies have time to rejuvenate themselves.  We started back this week, but this morning Steve wasn’t able to join me.  So, I decided to try something I have been wanting to do for a while now but was a little afraid I would never be able to do – pull-ups.  Generally I use the resistance band while Steve does pull-ups, but after checking out Everyday Paleo‘s tips on doing pull-ups, I decided to give them a try and I did them!  I didn’t do a lot, but I did several and it feels great!!!  My body and mind are both jumping for joy at this new little feat.

My body never ceases to amaze me.  It always keeps working to get stronger and perform better.  Thank you body!

  1. Ooo well done. I tried to learn to do them just before RA and I was sort of getting there (i have NO upper body strength, chicken arms!) but then when my hands went crazy I gave it up. Maybe I should try again now that I'm better. Congrats, they're really hard!

    Terrific! (I'm jealous — with my shoulders I doubt that I'll ever do that again.) Congratulations on the accomplishment. Don't you just love it when you get confirmation that your body is getting stronger? Woohoo!


  3. Thats awesome Cathy. I used to have good upper body strength while racing motorcycles, any more I would be lucky to knock out 5. lol
    I would say your program is definitely working, keep up the good work!
