I hit it hard and started going doing boot camps and improving by leaps and bounds. On day one, I could not do a sit up, I could not do an air squat. A plank was not conceivable, let alone a push up. I am still not able to do a pull up, or a dip un assisted but, I am still working on it. I found a new passion and community with John, Tyler, Doug, Greg, and a few others as we walked in together and pushed as hard as we could. I started hitting little goals. One day, I could do a full air squat. Then I was able to do sit ups. Push ups came next, and I noticed things like a shirt had more room in the gut. We have fun. I like flipping tires, hoisting atlas stones, and dead lifting big heavy weights. My girlfriend Libby would come with me and it was our routine. We would go to the gym, and then make some healthy dinner and go for a swim out at Rocky Pond.
I saw the other side of 300 pounds for the first time in years. I was to the point of being able to run a mile before I messed up my knee on my birthday this year. Since then I had some issues with my kitchen at home which made making food a pain in the but and ate out way to much. I gained back about 20 pounds which I doubt was muscle. Since Libby has graduated, she has helped us to eat some better food and prep meals as well as iced tea. The fact I have not had a heart attack in the past year is likely her doing.
|This is what a normal station Might look like, A few heights and allow you to do a muscle up.|
|So this is what I think a pull up tree should look like.|
