I have been tracking my exercise data since I started up again as an adult. Yesterday I collected all the upper body records and entered them into Excel. Well, I didn’t enter them all.Before 2012 I was using a different format when I didn’t record the date so rather than guessing, I left that stuff out. Still, it is a record of almost two years of workouts. I thought you guys might find it interesting.
It surprised me that I was my fittest when I had a second job at a warehouse. It was a moderately physical job that I thought would have worn me out so my performance wouldn’t be as good.
Also, you should note that these numbers are only the single best set for a day. Some times I’d only do one set. Sometimes as many as three. Every set was always done to exhaustion.
Chin-up numbers are lower than pull-ups because I always do pull-ups first. They are harder.
