I was reading up on why people may think that a kipping pull-up should count in a pull-up contest. And I’m not finding any good news for the pro-kipping folks. Sure, a kipping pull-up may provide some fitness benefit, but not much in the way of building muscle (my opinion).
What are your thoughts? Discuss in the comments of this post.
I started running again late last year and was wearing some basic New Balance running shoes. They worked fine for my short distance cardio and gym workouts, but for my longer runs they didn’t give enough support or comfort.
My training partner who actually runs marathons (I’m not there yet) suggested that I look into buying some quality running shoes that are not too expensive but definately do the job.
So he suggested I get a run analysis done and try on some shoes. We went to the local Rush Running store and tried on different brands and ended up with Brooks Ravenna 8.
This shoe had the right arch support and comfort level for me and I really enjoy running in them. I am currently running 5K about twice a week and have nearly 30 miles on these shoes (tracked using Strava).
My training and better eating has paid off. I’ve lost 20 pounds since January. It wasn’t only from running. I’ll post more later about the other products I have been using from weight lifting gloves to protein shakes.
