Re: Eugene Allen's Birthday Pullup Challenge

Put me down for 50, Eugene. Current PR is 34. You are insane. Maybe if I add 1 pull up per year I'll be able to catch up to you when you're 80! (that is if you start slacking)

Re: Eugene Allen's Birthday Pullup Challenge

Ok, I found this a bit late, but as of now I can do about 10 pull ups dead hang, but am also working on my kip.. If I can't kip well by then: 15 dead hang, if I can kip, 25 kipping... hopefully I'll be able to kip though!! Age: 18

Re: Eugene Allen's Birthday Pullup Challenge

Jan, it's actually not too difficult. I managed to get form down with a few days of practice. And they are considerably easier than deadhangs.

Re: Eugene Allen's Birthday Pullup Challenge

I'm a long time reader (lurker) of the boards but I never decided to post. I felt compelled to post in here though. I think it had to do with one of my Simplefit brethren stepping up to the challenge; Brian De Mio.

Anyways, I'm a sucker for a good challenge, put me down for 25 dead-hang pull-ups/chin-ups.

Re: Eugene Allen's Birthday Pullup Challenge

Eugene,
I am of course in. Pumped out a set of 48 yesterday after my workout would like to get 60+. I think I will program all the classes at Brand X to do a Max set on 11/27 as well.

Re: Eugene Allen's Birthday Pullup Challenge

Yeah Derek, I tried them once a couple of weeks ago, and at the end of half an hour of struggling I started getting it pretty well- saw the Eva T video, so will be trying to get it within the next couple of weeks!! Wish me lcuk!

Re: Eugene Allen's Birthday Pullup Challenge

I recently hit a PR of 33 at Crossfit Old Town and made the leap to tell Jerry Hill I'd like to shoot for 43 on my birthday in December. He in turn made this a very public goal. This competition date is about midway so put me down for 38, that will give me a little more than a month to get those last five.

Wink Re: Eugene Allen's Birthday Pullup Challenge

Sounds like great fun. My current max is 26, I'll shoot for 30, wish I could hit my age but at 59, I've got a way to go.
