First of all thank you everyone, Fazc, BendtheBar and Off Road, for your feedback, suggestions and encouragement. I am so happy I found this forum.

(BendtheBar) If you were really weak at chins and wanted to improve I would have you use them more frequently.
I think I'll start doing some morning exercises which will include chins, and keep at it until I eventually feel it interfers with my training days. My thoughts however is that if I keep it light enough it will only aid recovery to do a few bodyweight movements in the morning.

Also, in regards to the "heavy" chins on friday;

(Fazc) In regards to the Chins, just a rep goal and perform as many sets needed. Over the weeks you can do more per set.
Thanks for this suggestion, I think a total rep goal w/ "unplanned sets" sounds like a good idea. It also allows me to go to max on my first set to check my progress every week.

Any ideas on how a decent starting rep goal and a progression for this goal should be calculated? I'm thinking 20-25 as a starting point, equivalent to four or five times my current one set max. Too little? Too much? Any thoughts?
