It's all that magic stuff we have to do.

And the carpal tunnel syndrome from typing!

I'm thinking about trying a lighter wand.

Teafan--

I may be late on this thread, but if you don't have access to parallel pull up grips, you can also try the commando pullup, which is more of an "ear up", because you turn your body 90 degrees from the bar and pull yourself up with both hands gripping the bar as you would hold a bat. I always alternate sides with each set.
