Very solid numbers on today's WOD, Nik!
I don't understand why BW BPs are so easy for men while the average woman can barely eek out a few of them at 1/2 BW! Why, why? Same with pull-ups.

I wonder the same, maybe genetics, I'm not sure. But in your defence the 2 guys I workout with both total each set at 5reps on bench. So you aren't alone.
I watched one of them get his first honest pullup.Now he is up to 10ish now. He got his first real kips yesterday.
