100 pull-ups for time. 10:55

This is over two minutes worse than my previous effort, but my previous effort included lots of less than legit pull-ups; this time, almost all of them were legit. :)

Used a narrower bar which I thought would be easier, but the bar spun somewhat, which was not easier.

Jim, That's awesome, man.

By contrast, I was doing sets of [B]3[/B] dead hang pullups as my strength routine last night (and I'm sore today from them).

Were those kipping or dead hang? Both?

I so want kipping pullups by my birthday in April. I think it could happen. I'm still using three bands, but they're getting quite a bit easier and the kip seems to be evolving naturally. I hope.

Kipping. Started with 16 consecutive, then deteriorated to 3 to 5 between rests at the end.

Me, too. Big problem for me is I am really inflexible through my shoulders so I have a hard time getting much out of that forward push, before the kip up. But honestly, it's one thing in the CF repertoire I just haven't worked on much.

Jim, kipping or not, that's impressive, man.

Re: Over 50 Crossfitters Sign In
 
I'm with you guys on the kipping. Too many shoudler issue. Pull ups are easier straight up and down. I am working on a kip the comes into play as I pull up and raise my legs somewhat---I can then generate some momentum by forcefully lowering my legs and enhance the speed from the middle to end of the pull up.

The main site was on a rest day. I had time over the weekend to watch a bunch of training videos on POSE and Chi running. So after my usual warm up, I did the POSE training exercises and then went to a treadmill to practice. Did a few two minute runs at 3.o speed.

As a workout, I did 8 minute Tabata Pose running with the treadmill at 4.5. This running has a different sensation. The stride length and posture are different from the way I used to run. HOWEVER, no knee pain!:run::run::pepper:
