    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.

    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."

    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.
    I know, I know. I'll be fine, if anything because I'm cutting too I'll lose weight but have an unbelievable back for my summer tops and bikini! Yay for me

    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.

    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.

    Completely forgot to do mine on Monday, but I was also exhausted. I had to lift weights for a music video on Sunday (arm curls over and over and over) and run around the hotel chasing a guy, etc into the late hours. I actually had to go home at lunch and have a nap just to get by.

    I made up for it on Tuesday, although still exhausted for some reason. I did 23 consecutive chins in the morning (the last couple were not good form, but I made it up over the bar), then attempted to do my 22 at lunch via pullups. I got to 11, then did 5, 3 and admitted defeat and finished the rest with chins. My left shoulder just feels weird/bad with pullups...and I seem to run out of gas on them too.

    Hmmm...where is that 100 pull-up every 2nd or 3rd day challenge...that one sounds nicer.

    I'm debating doing mine this way so it doesn't get in the way of my training. That and I'm tired of doing them everyday and being so sore, if you try doing 100 then a day or two off and repeat your not as sore or at least I'm not.

    I agree, I don't get as sore, not unless I really kill my back in the gym as a whole.
