Thoughts: After a week of deliberation, I have decided to purchase a chin-up bar for my apartment. I just need something I can use at home at random moments to reach my pull-up goal. Besides, hopping up from the computer to knock out 20 push-ups periodically has gotten too easy. Beachbody.com has this incredibly nifty one called the Jungle Jam. It shall be mine in a week or two, oh yes it will, and then the pull-up training routine will be ON between the Armstrong Pull-Up Program and The Power & Glory of the Pull-Up.
In other news, here are my progress pics at 5.5 weeks. I was going to wait until Saturday, but I’ll probably be having a cheat meal Friday night that will expand my gut like an overstuffed cream puff, so here they are a few days early. 😎

I’m such a dork. I can’t get over how much better my shoulders/arms look now. :: gazes at visible deltoids with glee :: 😆
