    Did my 3 today (1 for yesterday, 2 for today). Figured I'd get my posts in early, as I might not be able to type properly in the days ahead as the reps go up, lol.

    You can break it up, try 1 every 30 sec for now. When it gets to a higher number you can do 1 every minute, then 2 every minute, 3 every minute etc. or however else you come up with.

    How are you guys doing yours? Im trying to do them at a fairly wide grip, so that at the middle my arms form a 90 degree angle. Like this guy.

    I usually go a little bit wider than shoulder width, about the same width I'd grab the bar for doing squats. I'm going to be switching narrow, wide, underhand, overhand and hopefully other variations throughout the 100 days though.

    But you got them done. That's waht counts.


    *Future...I'll be mixing it up the whole way through. Like I said before I think variety will be the key.

    Did my 3 chinups this morning. The majority of mine will probably be close-grip chinups for 3 reasons:

    1. I'm thinking this will help with my bicep development
    2. Sometimes my shoulder feels bad/weird with certain hand positions with pullups
    3. I have a narrow doorway chin bar at home, so I can only do wide pullups when at the gym.

    Just realized this started on the seventh. I got work to do. Is this actually possible? To go from a max of two/day to 100 straight in 100 days?

    Count me in. Just did back and shoulders today and some close and wide grips pullups were luckily in my routine today, 30 actually so can that count as the pullups I missed from march 9 and 10th?
    So tomorrow 4 pullups it is.


    YEAH!!!

    The rules are in the 1st post. They do not have to be consecutive. That number of pull-ups just need to be done that day. In sets at once, however.

    Rules in 1st post. You can use any grip so yes, pull-up, chin-up, even false grip if you want (one hand one way and the other the other way like when dead lifting heavy).

    I was confused because the title of this is the Pull Up challenge.

    Gotcha. It's easier to just use pull-up instead of saying something like get your fat ass above the bar any way you can challenge..lol
    I figure particularly for those who can only do a couple pull-ups that if they can switch it up and get a couple more done that really even though there are some different muscles used or focused on that they are still using the majority of the same muscles and will benefit from the development.
    I personally focus more on real pull-ups, but will be mixing it up through out.
    \

    and I got my 3

    i've kept thinking about buying one of these



    but my weight:strength ratio has always sucked so pullups were never fun, and i could never do any significant quantity at once. i just have a crappy in doorway one, and damn i'm wishing I had that other one right now

    Yeah, I've got a total gym one I bought from Bed Bath and Beyond for 25 bucks. Not the best, but it def works. Plus I have a playground/jungle gym a couple houses down I can do them at if I'm not at the gym or in the office. Really, since I'm on a military base there really isn't a short of them. /

    I've got my 4 for today.

    Four!

    I have a doorway bar like the above posted pics, but the cheaper version I guess with less "features". Summertime will be good when I go for my bike ride to the park and do some pullups on the jungle gym/monkey bars. Xbox/PS3/Wii seems to keep a lot of kids off of those, and I usually get them all to myself...

    Never too late. You just need to "buy" in. Good thing is it's still early and you don't have many to make up.
