Friday afternoon my son Grant and I went to the gym to play around some and to just get a bit of time together. The last two days had been very rough and chaotic and this proved to be the absolute highlight, turning things around and clearing my busy brain. Grant is a great gym partner - he's focused on a quality workout, energetic, and happy! I did back and biceps and he hit all the major body parts and even hit the track.
In the midst of our playing (every workout should have an element of play!) we talked about one arm pull-ups and on a whim I tried one. To my great surprise, I managed three sets of 3, 2, and 2 reps. They are actually not all that hard because you can use both biceps. Still, it was a great reminder that you never know what you are capable of until you try!
Next month I turn 45! Another birthday is just another reason I strive to maintain strength along with endurance. If you are looking to start up a strength program or to improve upon an existing program, check out the line of strength training videos just for endurance athletes here
