... wide pullups (cut these short as hurt elbow)...
Quote from: Duncan Disorderly on January 25, 2023, 10:24:28 am... wide pullups (cut these short as hurt elbow)...Have you tried doing just the upwards bit then stepping onto a stool (or letting go) rather than lowering down? When my elbows are hurty it is the lowering/eccentric phase that aggravates them. Since you don't do much lowering in climbing is there much need to train this?
31st - good wall session, ticked some projects1st - leg rehab and stretching2nd - glorious winter sunshine on Portland. A handful of routes to 6b+ and a general family faff day.3rd - inset day for the lad so I took the day off and we went to the wall - another good session, off the last move of a project.4th - back to work, 3.5 mile round trip walk and rows and pushups in the evening5th - 4 mile round trip to work via nursery, evening stretching6th - stretching, rehab, foot elevated pushups7th - busy day out with the kids, walking carrying lugging etc. Then a few sets of pushups, bodyweight squats and some stretching8th - wall, ticked a project. A big family faff trip.9th - rows and pushups, I think10th - short fingerboard, I think11th - about 2 miles to and fro work (a bit of bus assistance due to rain)12th - rehab, I think13th - stretching14th - short fingerboard session15th - really solid rehab and stretching session16th - stretching, rehab, foot elevated pushups 17th - fingerboard. Managed to get back on the 8mm edges, albeit only at bodyweight (I did get to 4s with bw+6, so actually more promising than I had expected). Off my previous bests by some way (I havenít weighed myself recently, so uncertain exactly how much), but the recruitment is building back up.18th - 3.5mile walk to and fro work; MrsAJMs birthday so otherwise nothing 19th - 1.7mile walk to work. Short stretching session in the evening.20th - short rehab, stretching and pushups session. Varied the hand position on the pushups to try to make them a bit tougher.21st - walking round durdle door in glorious winter sunshine.22nd - fingerboard. Bodyweight on the 8mm edges again.
I find the wide pullup good for achey shoulders and the narrow pullup good for achey elbows
