Chin-Ups and pull-ups are one of the best exercises out there, period. They build the upper back, shoulders, arms, and even the abs. It’s true! I am crunching my abs like crazy on each rep at the top – if I didn’t, I would not be able to lift that much weight!
Still, I don’t want you to be impressed by this feat. Others have done more – this is simply a personal best for me, a kid who could not do a single pull-up growing up!
The Way I Got Here Was Consistency And Common Sense
I workout for an hour max, 4 times per week, and the first 10 minutes of that is sitting on my butt using a foam roller!
I am never hungry, and I am free from cravings because I do have treats like ice cream, chocolate, or pie now and then.
I don’t do detoxes or cleanses, and I don’t take the latest fat loss supplements advertised on talk shows. I just eat right most of the time, exercise, and live my life.
I am off all of my diabetes medications, and I control my diabetes. It does not control me!
