    Are there any significant cons to doing chin ups on both A and B days for the SSLP if your chin up numbers are dwindling/non-existent?

    There is a possibility of not having enough upper body recovery, so you just need to be mindful of that.

    Elbow tendinitis.

    If you haven't had golfers elbow you have no idea how much it can affect your life. By the time you know you have it you may be in for an extended hiatus from chinups. In my case it was almost a year of no chinups before I tried one in a kids playground and found that I had recovered.

    Rip has a much faster recovery method but it is painful and scary. Wanting to do lots of chinups seems to be common for guys doing their NLP. There's lots of other accessory stuff you can do when you complete your progression and switching them around will help avoid overuse injuries.

    This is interesting. Iíve used Ripís chin-up protocol to recover from golfers and tennis elbow. I didnít know that chins also caused either one of them.
