Anyone have any tips on pull up progression? I'm trying to implement them into my routine, right now I have to use the assistance machine with 90lbs just to do three sets of five.

Yes I know that's weak.

Try this app
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....pullups&hl=en

It's pretty good helping with progression, if you can only do 2-3 pull-ups unassisted try doing them and just building on it every day or every other day.


And it's not weak, everyone has to start somewhere.

Those assistance machines will get you nowhere.

Do however many real pullups that you can, even just one or two. Rest, then do it again. Rest then again. At this point the appropriate muscles will be warmed up and stimulated. Now go over to the Lat Pull Down machine and with relatively light weight bang out a set or two of 10 reps. As you pull, focus on the muscles that you just wrecked on the pullups.

Are there any specific foods that actually target fat cells and break them down?

Or is exercise/cardio and reducing fat intake the only solution?

Reduce CARB intake.

There are some foods out there that set the stage for the release of fatty acids from fat stores (ex. coffee, tea, etc) but I don't think there are really any foods that directly break them down.

And +1 on Rolando's edit.

Yes, but not to the point your barely eating any carbs. I always use the 'fist rule', in other words my carb portions are no bigger than my fist. Try to make meat and veggies your main meals.

And as I always preach, make water your main beverage of choice!

Pain is temporary.
It may last for a minute or an hour or a day or even a year.
But eventually it will subside and something else will take its place."

Mixed with various forms of rap, but Hans has been good to me lately and I have this on repeat a lot.
