    Is the FDNY museum open on Memorial Day ? I wanted to go tomorrow but the weather looks like it's going to be a complete washout.

    As you guys can see your Investigators are not allowed to give you an update. But, if you listen closely when inquiring about your situation they may be Indirectly telling you something. I kid you not, I was indirectly informed I am good to go. There were certain terms my Investigator used while I was inquiring about my situation.

    Verbal cues, especially over a phone, can be misleading. Just my experience not specifically with FDNY but just in general. I wouldn't go off them.

    You a PH man. "You good to go". Not trying to play you in any way if that's what you thinking. The P in "PH" says it all.

    Jukez, how many pull-ups are you doing now? Have you increased your reps/sets with the last month? I was able to do 23 reps straight and 100 total this morning.

    Haven't tried to max out again but last time was 30+. 23 is pretty impressive though man, do a lot of forearm workouts and I'm sure you can bring it up a few more reps. How's your push ups, sit ups and your 1.5 mile?

    a good way to strengthen ur forearms with pull ups is do them WITHOUT using ur thumbs. Forearms will fail way before any other part of you does. Try it.

    Funny you say that, That's actually how I do them lol. For some reason everyone I know finds them "too hard" but I'm so used to doing it like that that when I try using my thumbs I can't get a good rhythm and barely do 20.

    Wow, 30 plus, now that is impressive. My push-ups are okay. I pretty much do 50-40-30-30-20-20-20. I stay away from full sit-ups. I play around with crunches and hang on a bar and lift my legs up.

    For the guys who want to link up with one another for a work-out, I suggest you guys accommodate each other due too your place of resident. I recommended you guys take turns weekly meeting up at one workout site instead of having just one particular location. For example, maybe one week whoever lives in Crown Heights, you guys can go there to work out. However lives in Manhattan, you guys can go there and workout, etc.

    They say the wider you do them the better. I guess your wings expands more the wider you position your hands on the bar. I am not a fan of the tricks people do on the bars. All that spinning/flipping on them. I just keep it basic.

    The width and grip you use work your back muscles In different ways. EACH is just as important as the other IMO if you doing it to "shape" your back but since we focusing on maxing out reps I say you do shoulder length as well since is "easier". I do muscle ups when I go to the park just because it works many body parts simultaneously.

    No way man! People have this idea that in order to do muscle up you need strength and its WRONG. I promise that if you get the right technique to get up there once the next 3-4 reps will come easy. Its all momentum after the first one.
