    Steady diet of Dips &Pullups

    I'm still recouping from my ankle surgery as a result I can't load my weight bars without putting to much weight on my ankle.

    So, I super set dips with pullups. Nothing new to me but, wanted to share so people might want to consider.

    My home gym has a dip/pullup station. However, I wanted to do these inside the house for convenience.

    So, I ordered a door jam pullup bar and a portable dip stand by Black Mountain (nice and light weight).

    These two body weight exercises are pretty awesome when combined. For pullups vary your grip (overhand, underhand & neutral) and by changing how you lean doing dips can vary the focus between chest and triceps.

    I recommend doing a little everyday until you build up the reps. Then a three day a week workout is a good routine.

    Stay Strong

    I'm too old and fat for pullups but I'm off to the gym tonight though, 1st time in 3 weeks got a hunch I'll be feeling it later

        I might do some pushups later, but first I'd like to take a nap.
        I don't know.

                  If you supinate your wrist on the way up you can work on a nice peak on your bicep. However, make sure you do the same reps for each side, balance and all that.
