Commnets:

* The last time I have done this much weight in this exercise was back when my bodyweight was 160 lbs and while adding an extra 70 lbs attached to my waist for a total of 230 lbs. Today I exceeded my total for the same 3 sets of 7 reps. This gives me a few new goals to accomplish – breaking my older records for total weight – while getting accustomed to chinning at this heavier bodyweight.

Comments:

* I really pulled my back hard on the third rep but still manged to complete the set. I was pausing the weight for a few seconds below the knee on each rep and felt I might have stretched too far on the third rep resulting in a strain on the lower back. The soreness is not in the muscles but rather feels like it is in the connective tissue surrounding the back bone. I expect this soreness to potentially persist for a few weeks but am certain no permanent damage was done.
