The pull-ups, too, were more challenging than I'd expected/remembered. I thought I'd be able to dramatically increase my reps this time around, but while I cranked out full sets of unassisted chin-ups and pull-ups at the beginning of the workout, by the end of the hour, I had to keep a foot on a chair (actually, the top of our washing machine) to finish them. Ultimately, I upped my reps slightly, but not nearly as much as I'd hoped.
And then Ab Ripper X started. With my legs exhausted, I even had trouble with the hip-flexor-focused moves at the very beginning of the session. Ugh.
Am I regressing?
