Treated myself to a Dipping Belt after seeing it cheap on Black Friday sales.

Did 10kg 3x8 Pull Ups with 10KG attached. Much easier than expected. Did a 4th set without the weight attached and swung up like a monkey. :slol:

Has anyone got a pull up bar that clips onto a door frame and is actually good? I'd like it to be easily removable and not strawberry float up the frame. Buying one for a mate for Xmas hopefully.

I've only had 1 pull up bar, and it was one where it came in a few pieces and had to be assembled. It held together, but the joins were where it flexed so I'm sure that's where it would have failed eventually. Getting a solid one like that is the right decision, I'd say.

I'm back swimming, or at least I was before this cold. Looking to start running on a threadmill very, very soon. My ankle still slightly complains occasionally, but I think I just need to push it a bit since it's on movements I rarely do (so not walking, more twisting).

Pulled my back 2 weeks ago, but almost healed. The personal trainer we have at work has given me a load of glute work to try and see if that helps going forward.

Starting to think about my goals for next year One thing is a 13km race in June which I would love to do in less than an hour. Want to do another triathalon too.

What's everyone else hoping to achieve next year?
