It is time the world knew of the many perilous adventures of Rian D. Adams! Tales of her bravery abound, the only problem is – they are all made up based on speculation. She may be even mightier than her legends suggest! Or, she could be less-so. But let’s not focus on that, for the purposes of my post, she is incredibly awesome and thus her name shall live on.
About five or six months ago, I decided that I wanted to train to do a pull-up. I have never been able to do one before, but all of a sudden it was something that I wanted to do. I figured that all my climbing must have already prepared me to do pull-ups. But no! Upon trying to do one, I looked absolutely weak and pitiful. Climbing and working out a lot has also made me gain a lot of weight. Mostly muscle, so this weight does help my climbing, but still. And thus began my battle against muscle gain so I could do pull-ups.
