Page 12 of 21 First ... 1011121314 ... Last

  1. did mine....

    honestly........... i dunno how its gonna be as thing goes on. When we get past, say 40, i dont see many people making it. Im not doubting anybody's strength/drive but its just a matter of recovery. I got some marines in my shop that i have do pullups everyday, and it comes to a point where you gotta have a break......I dunno. I can see being sore from doing 80 pullups one day..... and being like " ffffuuuuuuhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hkkkkkkkkkk...... i gotta do 81 today?!"

  3. I'm going to try to stick with this until the end but if it interferes with my main lifting too much I'm going to have to drop it. Can't kill my progress for 3 months. So far so good though. I like doing sets of 5-6 to keep the CNS fatigue to a minimum.

    Day 50-100 will really suck. The thing I'm more worried about is getting a huge manly lat spread! So the only reason I may stop in the future is if my biceps and back can't fit into my clothes anymore!

    Unless your on steroids, theres no such thing as a women with too much muscle, I'll bet your significant other would agree. As I'm sure your well aware, women dont get obscenely muscular without the use of 'extra' help.

    But I do wonder about the actual ability of our bodys to continue to knock out that many pullups a day, I'm basically sore 24/7 and were only on 19.

  6. Bah humbug to all this negative talk

    However, this what I was referring to when I was stating in the beginning of the thread that I'm not going to try and do as many consecutive the whole way through. Some days I max out consecutive, some I break up in sets of 3 etc and spread them out through out the day, as well as switch up methods from dead hangs to kipping, to chin ups to neutral grips and so forth. I think complete variety is the key to good progression and to keep from burning out. About 3-8 days after the challenge is when I plan on getting back on the bar and finding out what my true max consecutive pull ups are.

  7. Can anyone do one handed push ups yet? I tend to only be able to do them when I see others do it. I like to show off

    Yeah, with feet spread. Do you mean pull up? I can only do a one handed pullup cheating (using the other hand to pull up holding to my wrist). It's an easy way to win a bet..."Bet you $5 I can do a one-handed pullup."

  14. 19 in, still doing close grip chins. I'll start alternating grips as soon as I can't do them consecutive. 20 is my PR, so I don't want to jinx anything by changing things up.

  19. Did mine at the kids park again, but could only do sets of 2-3 because it's raining and the bar is too slick to hold on to.
