200 Rep Challenge
I actually got this from T-nation, but it's a great way to shock your muscles. Me and my buddy did it the other day and I'm still recovering.
100 reps of dips
100 reps of chins
Basically do 10 sets of 10, supersetting both exercises (switch back and forth). Try to make it to 200! Once you get good, you can time yourself and try to beat that time.
There were a few instances I would do 7 chins, 10 dips, then go back and do 3 more chins. It was HARD. I only made it to about 75 chins and then quit out, I was completely spent. I did manage the 100 dips though.
Anyone who tries this please post feedback.

I want to cry already. The dips would be doable for me over 10-12 sets i think but 100chins....maybe over the course of a week lol.

IM TOTALLY DOING THIS ONE DAY ! YOUR ON....
my dip thingy sucks at gym, i might just do ones off the bench if soo ill def label it accordingly, how wide are your chins? chins being palms out right

I did mine palms facing in ... palms facing out would've been too hard
We did our workout on Monday. It is now Thursday morning and my chest, lats and back are still pretty sore. It definately taxes the hell out of you.

i can already do 5 sets of bw dips @ 40 reps per set, so that would be no problem, but the chins, after about 30 of em i'd be only gettin about 2 or 3 reps a set. lol
i think it will be a while for me to accomplish this one...

I can imagine that my shoulders would be shot after one session of dips. Shot enough that it could take a very long time to recover from the trauma to my joints and ligaments alone.
But it surely is a test of stamina and endurance and likely a great way to improve upon both...if I could live through it.
Life is a terminal condition.

sounds like GVT to me! is there a set tempo? I know for GVT I couldn't do 10x10 for chin-ups because of the tempo.

Big joe normally does 5x5s in everything then attempts 100 reps of something he will most likely fall apart lol
Big Bob normally does 5x20 well then doing 100s must be easier but still totaly challenege but not as potentially damaing as Big Joes workoout

I've done 10 sets of 10 dips before easily. But when you superset it with chins ... your arms fail very quickly. It was a great workout and I definitely will be incorporating it into my routine (once a month maybe? LOL)

sounds kind of like a crossfit workout. I tried this one last week: 100 Pull-ups, 100 pushups, 100 bw squats, 100 sit-ups for time. Everything must be done in succession, I.E. you cannot move on to the next exercise until the 100 pull-ups are completed, etc. Good stuff.The pull-ups are whatever grip you feel you can complete the set with, and are not traditional dead hang pull-ups.

I did the 100 pullups, wide grip palms out, last week and I almost completed all 10 for each set. I made it through 8 sets of 10...then did 8 for my 9th set, and 7 for my 10th set. I wanna give the 200 rep challenge a shot....sounds brutal.

there was a guy at my old gym who was in the paper who did 200 squats with 200lbs at one time, no stopping.. i cried just reading the article.
05-12-2008, 12:43 PM
Yeah - that is a crossfit type workout for sure.
I did 100 reps with 225 on squats a couple weeks ago - did it, 20, 20, 15, 15, 10, 10, 10.......it was pretty brutal walking around the next day or two.
I may give this 200 rep challenge a shot though...something different.

buttt, i did it with weenie weight since i have no strength in my legs after my surgeries

I could def do the chins part but god damn dips.. seriously just tears my shoulders all to sh!t..
when I read "palms facing out" I took that to mean facing different directions -- which would literally shred everything in my shoulders haha

+1 to Crossfit influence
100 *strict* pullups and 100 dips sound completely uneven. 100 kipping pullups and 100 dips sounds a lot more like what was intended... some definintly will be able to muster through the workout with strict PU, but the vast majority of the community won't find this to be a logical workout.
100 kipping pullups though.... that'll get you suckin' wind! Last time I did Angie was a few weeks ago - great workout.

Had a home town fella home on leave from the navy put on a show at my gym this past weekend. He's a navy seal home on leave. Did a 300 rep workout in 18 minutes. 6 exercises 50 reps each. He's built like a freaking house and turned heads the entire 18 minutes. Freaking unbelievable to watch. Got a chance to talk with him later on. Damn cool training that they do on a daily bases. All i can say is that we think we train hard. What they do on a daily bases puts us to shame...

Good stuff. I love the workout. Did it yesterday and actually had enough energy to do some 3 chair pushups and arm work. Love it!

The fellarz I know in the army, when theyre not doing PT or training, are usually lifting. I'm curious about the diets too. MRE's?
I know my buddy who was locked up for a while got big in jail, from all bodyweight exercises. AND their diet which was pretty much all carbs
