You two should totally get in on some Freeletics action if you're going to do this stuff at home anyway :)

I told Alli about it (having seen it on your logs). So it might happen in the near future...

Do it! I've actually enjoyed my last couple of strength workouts, something I almost never say about strength training.

I totally failed this week since the scheduled workouts required a pull up bar but Amazon is sending me one as we speak.

I have to say that the videos Alli has been doing at home have seemed really good as well, though I am not sure what they are called. Do you have to pay for freeletics, or is there a way to do it for free?

You can do a selected section of the workouts for free, but for access to all of them and the programming (which is the best bit about it, it coaches you depending on your previous times and effort level) it's about $30 for 3 months. I think we can all get you a discount code if you're interested!

Carol, how did you rig your Freeletics to assign you pull-ups? Mine hasn't given me anything remotely arm-strength-y yet!

acjospe:
ooh, I'll send you guys discount codes, because then I get a discount too.

Alex, you can go into 'Advanced skills' (under 'You') and check off the ones you can do. Then the coach will give you exercises using those advanced skills. At least, that's what it says when I go to that section. I haven't checked any of them off...

I told it I can do pull-ups, but it hasn't given me any. Not actually complaining about this...

I certainly cannot do pull-ups, so that's not it. I think I told it to focus on strength. The exercise is actually jumping pull-ups, which I'm guessing/hoping is a modification to make it easier. Both the normal and the 2x2 versions had them so I just did nothing.

Discounts sound nice. Yes please.

Yeah, the jumping pull ups are where you jump to reach the bar and only the final bit of the pull is arm/shoulder strength. Crossfit modifies pull ups in the same way. They're pretty good and can be hard if the bar is high - not so much if it's in a doorway.

I can't decide how many pull ups I need to be able to do in a row before I tell it I can do them...

And then there are other arm exercises that some might refer to as jumping pullups, that might be interesting to try if your arms got a lot stronger. Sort of amazing to see what some small number of people can do that really focus on arm strength! http://gearjunkie.com/rock-climber-jan-hojer-stren...
