Jared, so it is! Now all the op's questions are answered. Yet again illustrating the need for defining what a pull-up is. This must be amongst the most misused terms, which really doesn't matter...

Re: too old to get truly big?

About 2.8/minute, if I recall correctly. For 1,440 minutes. See what you can do in your "old age"? Now I want to row across the Great Lakes. Never ending fun as you get older!

Having done a 24 hour pull-up marathon, the four most important lessons learned were:

1.) Do at least one pre-event marathon--say 15 or 20 hours. Better yet, do a 24 hour trial. This will uncover...
