    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.
    I've read itís easier to breathe at the bottom portion of the lift (i.e. big ol' breath before you pull yourself up). and hey, your pull-up improvement guide sounds fantastic. what a great idea! wishing you the best with compiling all that together. i believe many, both newbies and experienced lifters will benefit from that, including all lifters in-between the two experience levels


  2. 14, it's getting tougher to get em all in one set, might have to break into 2 or more soon...

  3. Man I missed like a week haha, but I did 40 last night with a 10 pound dumbell between my legs. I'ma do another 40 at the gym on my lunch break and 40 tonight and I think I'll be good. I'm catching up lol

    LOL I feel like such a ***** right now. I have to get out of the work too much not eat enough rut. Now that I'm focusing back on training after such a long break of half assedness I am not back where I want to be at all lol. I have to work harder at getting more calories in during my work day...its my problem.No excuses though. I will hit close to my goal, I am determined.

    today was day 15. What you need to do is "buy in". What that means is you need to do all the pull-ups that you missed as well as that days. If you buy in tomorrow you need to do 136 pull-ups. Yes in that day and no they don't need to be consecutive! All the rules are in the 1st post and I'll add your name to the list. Glad your coming along.

    Thanks, the rest of my workout was a Monster powered one of awesomeness..I had to stop myself so I woudn't overtrain. I think my next back day will see an increase on reps or weight for pullups. My calories are great today.

  27. 16 today.
    Got confused by my "15 today" dated today until I realized it put it as after 4am.
    Haven't missed a single day yet. We were just going up to 20 right? :P

  28. But imagine knocking out like 90 then 91 then 92 lol...I'm sure we could all get up there but the soreness is going to be crazy. I'm walking around stiff and sore now, sauna and hot tube tonight after abs.

  33. 16 today. Sorry about no posts. Ive been hitting it regularly.

    Not too try and sound like a puss or anything but i used to do 18 back in the Corps... shxt i could probably only do like 5 now... so im using that assisted machine and working the way down the weights... monday is 5 sets of 5 reps for chins and wedneday is 4 sets of 8 reps for pull ups... I keep taking weight off every week so im excited to get to doing those for body weight... thats why i dont have much intentions to jump in on this yet my brotha

  35. Yeah, not too late to join. You only need to do 153 tomorrow to buy in. Break them up in sets throughout the day.

    We def can do this again sometime.

    The next challenge I think will be similar to this, but I think I'll be doing doing burpees. I'll start that right after this one ends.

    All I can say is that it comes back FAST! I was doing assisted pullups for a few months and took a 3 month break, the next thing I know I'm doing unassisted sets of 5+ for this competition.

    You're really trying to kill some people aren't you? Those will be intense.

  39. Im all caught up with those jump pullups... this competition is killing my cool points at the gym.

    plus my whole body hurts.

  40. I dont know what i like to punish myself with more... burpees or 8 count body builders

    if you are not familiar with 8 counts they are basically burpees but when you kick your legs out you do a push up and then come back up

    some people do burpees with a jump at the end of each rep from the squatting postion... thats how i like to do them
