A pull up day

Today ended up being a pull up / evil wheel day.

Pull up: 36lb 5x5 + evil wheel 5x5

I think I could do 6s on the pull ups but I didn't want to push that on the first day of 5s. Remember it is far better to leave a couple reps in the tank rather than go to failure. Going to failure trains your CNS (central nervous system) what failure is in addition, it leads to over training. Leaving gas in the tank keeps the CNS and your muscles on the fresh side and ready to train again tomorrow!

It really does work.
