One of the goals I set myself for 2018 was to be able to do a pull up, unassisted. I began at 44kg on the assisted pull up machine in June, I couldn’t lift my own weight using the red (easiest) resistance bands in the gym. After working on my pull ups for a while I began to become frustrated that I wasn’t seeing any progress. Since building my upper body strength and pushing myself I have finally began to see progress! I have now got the weight down to just 9kg on the assisted pull up machine and have managed to move from the red, to the blue and now the green resistance band which is something I never thought I could achieve! It might have taken me nearly three months to get to this point but it’s made me realise that practice, ambition and patience is key. I know I still have a lot to improve on in regards to my form but Rome wasn’t built in a day!
