    After the challenge on your own start doing weighted pull ups and your lats will just explode! I say after the challenge just because weighted pull ups once were in the latter part of this may be a bit too much. But I plan on doing 45lbs weighted after this. I think I'll be good and ready for it then.

    A picture of that would fit great on the CrossFit.com mainpage.... "CrossFitter takes a break from vacation in order to stay on pace for pullup challenge" *PU's on a rollercoaster beam*

    I'll be keeping watch on this one - can't jump in just yet however. I might have to (painfully) buy-in at a later date however. Keep up the great work!

    Man I killed it on back yesterday with this workout below so today should have been an easy 10, but it was a struggle. Tomorrow is an active recovery day with a 3-4 mile run so I should be fine again.

    Lift
    Deadlift 3-2-2-2-1-1-1-1-1 (use the 3 reps as a lighter warm-up weight, then go up in weight each set for the remaining sets until you hit your one rep max)
    WOD
    With a continuously running clock do one chest to bar pull-ups one minute, 2 chest to bar pull-ups the second, and so on until failure.

    Then I superset some various biceps lifts with some more back work like rows. Followed everything with a good cycling session.

    Nice, how much were you deadlifting?

    Side note man I'm a few days behind, but my dip belt should be coming in soon so I can add a 45 plate

    Got my 10 in at the gym with perfect form on each rep and great height over the bar.
    I'm pretty sure I won't be making that same comment next week, lol.

    Then I superset some various biceps lifts with some more back work like rows. Followed everything with a good cycling session.
    After my back workout on Tue. I was the most sore today and pumping out 11 sucked. It's always 2 days later that I am the sorest if I do get sore.

    I know what you mean I think I have to move pullups to the beginning of my workout...I tend to rape my back with deads.

    i have a question: what is the correct breathing pattern for pull-ups?

    when i've done them in the past i inhale at the bottom and exhale as i'm getting to the top. is this correct breathing technique?

    This pic is of my last (#14) L Pull-up. Form def started to falter at the end. I'm working on that, but the L position is hard for me.

    You know, that's a good question. I really am not sure. I believe I inhale on the way up and exhale on the way down, ending my breathes at the to extremes of the ROM. It just feels natural to me. I haven't read anywhere anything regarding breathing and pull-ups. I would say don't even think about it and let your body just do it.

    On another, but similar note, I am working on putting a guide to better Pull-ups together. I want to cover aspects from the beginner working for their 1st to the experienced working towards a PR, whether it's for reps or poundage/tonnage. I will also cover the various methods, grips, their purposes etc. All that into an easy to read/follow summary. I've got it started, just need to finish it now.
