...I'm actually a pirate in training.
The hubby and our buddy TL built this little gem for me today while I was sleeping before work. Since we're living in the RV indefinitely, I didn't have a good place for pullups. Since one of my goals is to be able to do pullups, that put a significant kinker in my plans. All I had to do, though, was ask, and this wonderful setup was granted me. :) One side is for my pullups, the other to dry scuba gear. I didn't try it out today because I wanted the dirt and stuff to settle some, but no worries, I'll be out there soon!
Here's a pic of the hacienda...We've downsized to it fairly effectively. The next step will be downsizing to a sailboat. That will be a little bit more of a challenge, and I've still not figured out the pullup issue there...
WORKOUT: Double 16kg C&P/Bent row--3 4-rung ladders
Double 16kg squat 3 3-rung ladders
30 sec b/w rungs, 2 min b/w ladders.
I had to do push-presses on the last rep of the last two C&P ladders, but I am okay with that. Tension really does make all the difference in this exercise. I can definitely feel myself getting stronger, can see measurable results. When I first started working with David Whitley, I had finished the ETK and ROP program about 2 months before. At the time, I had found them very productive but insanely boring. As we were covering my expectations, I mentioned my being bored with those programs. His comment was, "Simple is effective." Like a good young Padawan, I have revisited simplicity and found it more complex than ever.
