carrying bags of stuff is a primitive form of strength training so b4 i took the lift to go back home, i stopped by the fitness corner and went straight to the chin-up bar. then i put down all the plastic bags and hang ed at the bar.
one, two, three..go!
then i realised that i could still do 15 chin-up. not bad ah then my thoughts ran back to last time ...hmm:
sec1: 0 (well, only 1 or 2 blokes in class could do soem decent form of chin-up back then..lolzz! )
sec2: 5 (max)
sec3: 11 (max)
sec4: 14 (max)
army: 10 on "maintenance days", 12 on "standard days", 15 max on "performance days". well, this kind of standard remained till today
till now..i never did more than 15 chin-ups
anyway the story was a bit diff for my peers...for their case, until jc time, they did like 7 or 8 chin-ups only. it was army time that beefed them up..the last time i met them back in nus was like they were doing an average of 16 or 17 chinups but well, they r really dedicated when it comes to strength training...doing like what 3 to 4 times a week...a bit too much for me lolzz...me rather maintain emphasis on cardio
