    I know that you know you are working hard in these sessions, but, not having access to a wide variety of weights/equipment, I find it hard to appreciate what you have done. How about some chest to floor press-ups, chin-ups, pull-ups - unweighted/weighted - to help my understanding?

    Chin-ups - alternating unweighted with 5 kg weighted - sets to failure, set + rest = 4 minutes, 8 sets - unweighted were 6 - 5 - 5 - 4; weighted were 3 - 2 - 2 - 2.

    Squats and lunges before and in-between the sets.

    I need to get that 6 up to a 7. I feel I could do it, but ....

    Dumbbell bicep curls. 2 X 12.5 kg. Simultaneous lifting with both arms.Eccentric lowering. 2 mins break between sets, during which I did (x10) reps of floor to lock to floor press-ups. Curl Reps were to failure, per set.

    26 (10) - 18 (10) - 11 (10) - 12 (10) - 11 (10) - 12 (10) - 12 (10)

    Dead hang for 1 mins 29 secs this morning. So not as good as previously. Think I need to try to adjust my grip on the bar and experiment with distance between hand placing too.

    Had a "rest" on my bed after my run - before I knew it I had been asleep for 2 hours.

    I managed 1 min 31 this morning. Obviously heavier body weight is a killer on this exercise.

    Bit of a different approach to the dead-hang.

    Having watched the video yesterday, and noted that some of the competitors used chalk dust, I used a pair of sticky gardening gloves. Also, instead of my usual wrist stop-watch, I placed a wall clock with a noisy second hand in front of me to ensure immediate (and hoped for encouragement) feedback. And success (sort of), with I min and 42 seconds.

    However, deep down I know the sticky gloves are a cheat!!! But at least my back got a slightly longer stretch. I also have to lift my feet off the ground by slightly bending my knees, so I think this isn't quite as easy as a straight hang (especially when wearing a heavy pair of gardening welly boots ).
