Plus his arms go to the EXACT same spot each time, and he didn't even fully extend his lats... there is no way he stopped the muscle contraction at the same place EVERY time. His breathing is ridiculously similar too.

    I've bore witness to guys coming out of boot camp doing about 45 bodyweight pull ups, but I can't recall anyone I have ever seen even hitting 50, and this guy is not in post boot camp shape.
    I just moved from SD to DC in Oct. You in the military? What branch?

    i'm betting trampoline, based on how quickly he gets his head up to the bar.

    Well It probably is B.S. but its up there for motivation.Even if its B.S. anger. Of course there is a crackhead in downtown Vancouver, Canada, who is about his size who will rep out 100 1 hand push-ups for 5 bucks(probably 4 with the economy now haha). I have personally witnessed this with my own eyes. Full reps too.So who knows for sure. If you have ever watched a pull-up competiton on ESPN ot TSN, there are guys putting up close to 100 reps...@ a higher BW than that scrawny bastard is though lol. Not much for legs though.

    Actually no, I am not military, but most of my family is... probably what kept me from joining up actually, I wanted to rebel at 18, not conform. Now I think it would have been a great decision, but I'm too far along in my life/age. Being so close to camp penalton I'd say about a good half of my close friends all are, and I have witnessed a lot of them make some serious changes from going into and out of boot camp. It probably would have done me a lot of good at 18... probably would have gotten my head screwed on straight a lot faster than my own successes/failures have.

    ...GMG760 Version 2.0 ... Back from the dead.

  6. Last summer, on back days, I started 100 pullups/day. Started with about 10 reps, then 9, then 8 until you hit 100 that day. Took awhile, but a great back workout. My elbows are still sore(tendonitis)!

  7. Fine, count me in. I'll do 3 today (1 for yesterday, and 2 for today). I have a bar in my doorway.

    I'm in a weird mood for change. I was so pleased with myself when I did 50 full bodyweight dips on the parallel dip bars a few days ago for my bday. I couldn't lock out the 50th one, and I'm sure my form for the last 10 was sloppy, but I didn't quit until I got 50, so I'm counting it, lol.

    A few summers ago I'd walk/bike to the park regularly, and whenever I passed the swingset (and nobody was around), I'd do chinups, and usually do 20 on the first swingset, walk over to the 2nd and do 10. Now granted, the swing bar was VERY thick, so I gripped with both my hand and wrist, which meant I wasn't going down nearly as far as I would with a chinup bar. I'm probably at the 10-12 rep range on the bar right now, lol.

    As weird as it sounds, I'm just hoping my shoulder holds up, as I can't do certain chin grips or it tweaks my shoulder.

    Dude your ripped if thats you in the picture you should be able to do 100. I can do 50+ for sets but thats just my fav thing to do in the gym. Lets me and you do the Dip and Pull up Challenge!!! I'll post a vid when I do 100 in a row.

    I need to buy the belt to hold plates on me while I do them. I'ma go to big 5 today and try and get one, if I do I'll post a vid of me knocking the pull ups out.

  9. I guess I may as well ask now, when we get into the higher numbers, do they all have to be continuous? I know that resting as necessary between is ok, but when we're in that higher number range do I more or less have to plant myself in front of the pullup bar and not leave till all 100 are done?

    Thanks - yeah, that's me either last summer or the summer before that, most likely after mowing the lawn or something. I use one of those non-motor push enviro friendly lawnmowers. I tended to take more pics of myself after doing yardwork when I felt all energetic and sweaty, lol. I don't have the same rush shoveling snow in winter, lol. I think the pic also looks better all shrunken to the avatar size - it thickened the shadows or something, lol. I'd be more than ecstatic if I could ever do 30 pullups in a row.

    Your delts and back look nicely defined - it shows that you can do 30 pullups like you did last night.

    I'd definitely have an easier time doing dips than pullups. Just like when it comes to beautiful woman, I seem to excel at the pushing away part but not the pulling in, lol.

    I just wear a slighty loose weight belt and tie a rope around the belt-->through the holes and end in a half hitch. ..I don't own a specific dip/pullup belt lol. I'm all for buying toys though, I know you will enjoy adding weight to your exercises, enjoy your purchase.

  12. In for this, looks like I got some make up to do now...

    You can break it up any which way you want, 20 in the am, 20 at noon, and 20 in the pm, whatever. It's all in the rules posted in the 1st post. You just have to get them done that day. You can use any method of pull-up as well as long as you get a full range of motion. IMO, variety is key, mix it up.

  25. 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.

  26. I'm in. Did some pullups yesterday but I'll do 6 tomorrow to make up and officially start this.

  27. Got my 3 in for today
