Re: Chinup Challenge, 2013

Well shoot - I missed this! Last spring I set out to learn chin-ups, and started at being able to do exactly zero (husband acted as assistant until I could do one unassisted), and a couple of months later I could do 4 all by myself :green: I need to get started on that again.

Korn - They basically defined the nu-metal genre. Just started listening to them again and I'm wondering why I gave up on them.
