Who Knew I Had Strict Chest-to-Bar Pull Ups?

So, I went to the CrossFit gym today, mainly because the WOD had chest-to-bar (C2B) pull ups, and I wanted to practice my butterfly C2B pull ups.

But I had a problem; I had practiced both C2B and bar muscle ups in my garage yesterday, so when I woke up, I was sore, and my hands still hurt.

I went anyways and told myself to see how it went.

I tried to butterfly but gave up right away; I just didn’t have them in me.

So, I tried strict C2B pulls up, which I haven’t done in years.

And I had them!

Not only that, but I had A LOT of them!

Either I’m getting stronger (I’m sore enough to be getting stronger), or I just didn’t realize I had them.

Either way, it was cool to see, and it gave me renewed confidence that this pain is all worth it.

I’d love it if you subscribed to my YouTube channel (you don’t have to watch — just subscribe!). Thanks!
