I’ve been doing body weight training since the pandemic started. I bought a pull up bar. I was doing 1/4 pullups, then 1/2, then 2/3. By this, I mean I started at the top (helped by a stool to get there initially), head above the bar, then went down 1/4 of the way, pulled back up, went down 1/2 way, pulled up, then went down 2/3 of the way, pulled up. By the time I got to the full down, pull up, I couldn’t do it.
Today, I started extended down all the way, and was able to do (only) one pullup! Yeah!
Not bad for someone with a monocep (had shoulder surgery on my right shoulder, and they cut one of the tendons for the bicep on that side; so I have a “monocep” on that side). Also, with a fully torn supraspanitus on my left and a repaired supraspanitus on my right.
Also tried a true one arm pushup on flat ground. Still have a ways to go for that. Can do them on the second step of a set of steps, though.
Will update when I get to two pullups or one one-armed pushup.
