Thanks, yup definitely. I've always believed in paying it forward... I'm especially excited to see what Dom can achieve now that hes gotten more detailed with his training and diet, and actually seems motivated.

I can think of a few threads I've given paragraph after paragraph of tailored info that have completely died, the OP's have vanished into thin (gave up) air.

Come on man, I did take your advice on most things and appreciate it. The only time when you and the rest of the crew gave no rational answers (On protein Vs MF), I simply dismissed it. If I don't listen I would not have changed my gym. Remember that!

Many things to be learned on this forum, but the most annoying part is when members say someone is wrong without saying or explaining why. Don't give a man a fish, but teach him how to fish.

Good job man. I love to see you guys make progress. It makes me happy like rainbows and gold-filled caldrons.

It'll be interesting to see you guys battle it out. Do it!

I like rock/metal, but that would have messed up my concentration. Good job man!

Loose weight? Haha. How often do you practice? How fatigued are you after the 6th one? Are you struggling on the 6th?

I've been giving a go at it daily. I'm 5'9" and 157 pounds, and lately I've been trying to lose more weight, but it's hard, lol. At the 6th pullup I'm struggling and form is starting to get sloppy, can't go all the way up on the 7th.

You shouldn't be working out any muscle 2 days in a row. There's many other forms of pullups you could do that would help keep your muscles confused so you can continue making gains.

The pullup is a compound lift, and depending on the exact style you do, it's generally working mostly the back, but also shoulders, biceps and chest. Working out all these muscles properly would benefit your pullup abilities. Many different forms of pushups would benefit several of these muscle groups also.

I know I'm not the most knowledgeable member here, but i believe i could definitely help you. If you have more in depth questions regarding exercises, form or if you want videos describing anything, feel free to pm me or ask here.

If i remember correctly, you don't have a gym membership or home gym, so there's many exercises you can do that utilize your body weight for resistance.

I hope i was of some help, feel free to ask away!
