On those 2015 goals…
This may not look like much, but I finally have a chin up bar installed!
My goal for 2015 is to be able to do 10 chin ups, as well as 10 pull ups. (Chins up, your palms face away from you. Pull ups, your palms face you.)
In 2014, in July, I started doing 20 pushups every day. Did I start off doing 20 pushups? Heck no. I actually started in May, with the stupidly easy goal (for me) of doing 10 pushups a day. I did that for a week, then the next week, moved to 11 pushups, etc., building my way up to 20 pushups. Now, I do somewhere between 20-25 per day. (Depends on how I feel.)
Currently, I can do two pull ups. I can almost do a single chin up. I’m working on it. I go and use the bar regularly, every other day.
Another goal of mine for 2015? Press ups. Basically, handstand pushups. On the days I’m not doing chin up/pull ups, I’m doing handstands. I want to work my way up to 5 handstand pushups.
I think it’s important to keep strong. Muscles are sexy. I won’t ever go back to the gym. But I will keep improving myself.
