If you’ve been following along, you notice that I have not updated this log in about a month. That’s not because I haven’t been training! Instead, the first week of January saw me visiting relatives in New York City, and after that, classes started again at UC, so I’ve been a bit preoccupied. But whenever possible, I have been uploading my training videos to YouTube, and I an just now caught up. So, it’s time to update the log.

Unfortunately, the apps I am using to program and track my chinups and pushups don’t tag data points by date. Instead, they use days since I started. In principle, it is possible to convert these values into dates, but in practice that is more trouble than it’s worth. Moreover, these logs record the total number of reps and not reps per sets, which I find more valuable. Because of this, I am going to omit these exercises from my reports, at least while I am playing catch-up. Maybe I will include them in the future, maybe not. Maybe I’ll just present the results of my “tests.“ I don’t yet know. Meanwhile, enjoy my progress with the bar.
