—– Your muscles don’t just get out of bed, knowing how to do chin-ups. I learned to do them through developing my ability to do dips.
—– I only learned to do dips after moped accidents, that bruised my ribs and my knees. I had to lift myself off the toilet, with my arms. And after repeatedly lifting myself, involving triceps, I walked into the gym one day able to do dips.
—– So frequent low-repetition exercise caused the triceps to grow. My abdomen, rib cage and my knees weren’t able to lift anything. The bulk of the lift fell on the triceps and shoulders. I extended that method to my chin-ups.
—– So I go to the gym for a half-hour several times a day. Those are called two-a-day and three-a-day. They are also called two-fers and three-fers. But there has to be several hours of muscle rest between session.
—– I don’t argue with the results. Over several months, I loaded less assisted weight and lifted more body weight on the assisted chin-up machine. And I continue to keep the schedule of several half-hour sessions, during several times each day, with three to four hours rest between session.
