stormy weather

...but all sports grounds in the ACT are open.
...but I have decided to cancel training today. It is too cold and wet out there.

Strength exercise #3. Chin-Ups

  • Grasp an overhead bar with a reverse grip as shown
  • Pull yourself up until your chin is above the bar
  • Slowly lower yourself back down

Variations - Perform with a wide grip i.e. hands wide apart on the bar, palms facing away from you

A group heading off in last Sunday's O'Connor Ridge 8k handicap. Includes Brett & Nadine taking care to slowly work back into racing.


  1. I do assisted wide grip chin ups on the machine at the gym...I'm getting the weight down (currently at 35kg, doing 1x8 & 1x7) but can't see me ever being anble to do a proper one!

    I'd need to weigh about 40kgs I reckon and that's not going to happen!

  2. I'd like to get my PB of 3 chin-ups up to 5 one day... Perhaps if I try the variation of starting from standing on a milk crate.

  3. Is that 3 chins you have Ewen?
