RT – Thanks for the reply. Right now I alternate between doing sets of 20 assisted pull-ups for one day and then on the next workout I do sets of 4 rep pull-ups with a 2-1-2 cadence. I was planning to start in a month since I will actually have the time to do this then. If I don’t do it then, I won’t try it out until next year (that is when I have time off of work).
Rifat – If you do not have a heart condition/vascular problem like me, practicing HSPUs is probably fine. You should always ask your doctor before you start a new workout program, but most people don’t . . .
