    Default Planche & One Arm Chin Up Journey

    I am documenting my every workout for Planche and One Arm Chin Up for anyone interested. I am using resistance bands for both and completing 4 sets of each 3 days a week. I am posting the 1st set of every workout on my youtube page along with how I'm feeling about that workout and my progression. I hope to achieve 3 consecutive one arm chins by the end of 2017 and a full planche for at least 9 seconds with hands facing backwards. I will be dropping about 1lb per week on average using multiple resistance bands. I'm currently using about 58lbs of assistance for both exercises. Without assistance I could do about 15 chin ups when I started and 15 seconds on the tuck planche (although I could do 0 seconds with hands back). Please let me know if you have any feedback on form or questions about how I'm progressing along the way. I am hoping to have a running conversation about these two exercises along that way as they are so difficult and interesting to me and there are so many opinions on how to progress.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but before you were placing the band around your butt (sitting on it) and now it looks like you place it around your feet (standing on it)?

    Yes, you are absolutely right. It's easier, but it's also more consistent throughout the pull rather than being easy at the bottom and difficult at the top. I don't expect this to delay me in reaching my goal in any way as I still plan to lower the weight an average of 1 pound per week.

    Yeah that makes sense to me then. I was just mentioning it because that probably encourages you to straighten out your legs to get more tension out of it which might ultimately be bad long term as you'll start to rely on pushing harder and harder down on the band with your legs to get more assistance. Having it under your butt means you get the exact same help every rep, every day. But yeah no need to be picky. As long as u keep decreasing the band assitance, things will keep improving hehe
