    so today is day 55 guys!

    In the last 2 weeks i've really noticed my upper body strength increasing.

    Also my chest feels a lot stronger, i dunno if this has anything to do with hitting pull ups hard. Doesn't a stronger back increase your bench? Hit a PR on dumbbell flat bench

    I'm going to start a 100 day burpee challenge after this. Basic outline is going to be the same as the pull-ups. I'll post the probable standards for the burpees below. Youll' be getting your push ups in don't worry and like they say be carefull of what you wish for, you may just get it. HAhahaha

    Stay tuned for it. Full details to include pics for demonstrations will be in the 1st post of the burpee challenge when it starts. Starting date? Shortly after this ends.

    I want to use Burgener's burpee standards for form (see explanation below)

    One
    Start with hands on the ground in front of your feet. Keep your back straight.

    Two
    Kick feet out behind you into the top of the push-up portion of the burpee. Your body should be straight and tight in a flat plank.

    Three
    Lower your body into the lowest part of a push-up. Your chest and thighs should ultimately touch the ground at the same time. Remember to keep your whole body, especially your midline, tight. While throwing your body on the ground and therefore touching both chest and thighs to the ground is acceptable by some standards, I feel that more is to be gained from doing a strict push-up in this Challenge.

    Four
    Push up into the top of the push-up position again.

    Five
    Jump your feet up to your hands into your starting position.

    Six
    Jump into the air and clap your hands overhead so that your ear is exposed in front of your arms. Your feet should leave the ground.

    I can't wait for the burpees! or can I...

    Got all of my pull ups done today. Lately I have been rotating from wide grip to chin ups to regular grip pull ups. Today was wide grip and they were a ton harder than the other too... by far

    yea.. the more u put out, the better i will roll! i like the burpee idea.. u know i really havnt done burpees. Push ups and pull ups im starting to get into. But like everything i gotta crawl before i walk. if any 1 wanna do some side bets on pushups before burpee's let me know i'll roll with ya. But when burpee come out then we roll on that.

    Good to see action and people getting Down. Lets keep it rockin

    Well I'm officially caught up. Want to know how I did it? No, you probably don't but here it is anyways...

    Ten rounds for time of:
    3 Weighted Pull-ups, 45 pounds
    5 Strict Pull-ups
    7 Kipping Pull-up

    For weighted pull-ups place a 45 pound dumbbell between the legs above crossed ankles and jettison the dumbbell after third rep and continue with strict pull-ups and then the kipping pull-ups. Coming off the bar or going to ground constitutes termination of a set.

    I have gained so much since we started this. Last few days I have done 3 sets of 5 wide grips, that is an improvement for me.

    I messed my lower back up on Monday while I was tumbling, so working out has been a bit@h...if it doesn't get better soon, I may be bowing out. I hope some rest will do it good, though!

    I'm afraid it looks like I'm out. At least I made it over halfway. That's like a passing grade in high school. :P

    I'm 7 days behind and counting. I'm just not recovering fast enough when done every day. I'm going to somewhat continue doing chins on a regular basis, but I won't be doing them everyday.

    I did hit 30 reps in a row which blew away my PR, so they definitely helped. Hey, if I do the 50 day challenge twice, does that count? :P

    Best of luck to the rest of you still hanging in there!

    eat and sleep more and you'll be fine lol.

    I'm playing catch up most days now, but getting too 100 in 1 day is getting easier.

    Please, go for it. I actually would really love to hear how someone does by going to 50 then starting back over at 1 up to 50 again. I would ask you keep posting and maybe give a final summation. It would help to provide a perspective on whether 100 day challenge is really too much in regards to CNS burnout and if a double 50 day totaling 100 days would work better. It could help build a person up and just when they start to over train bring it back down for a good recovery and slow ramp up again. Cause I will admit I'm still loving the challenge, but it is a chore now.

    yep it's def becoming a chore, but it is a chore that I really enjoy. I love doing my pull ups and the only time that I'm sore is after a day when I was doing weighted chins during my previous workout.
