Re: One arm chin up competition

Daniel,

I can't say with any authority anything about the physiology of the OAC, but I know that when I do it, I am tensing every muscle I can as hard as I can. A natural result is that I lift my...

Re: One arm chin up competition

Derek, if by "this" you mean working on the one-arm chin-ups, it's been a vague goal of mine for a long time (at least a year), but I've only started seriously focussing on it at the end of July or...

Re: One arm chin up competition

Thanks! I'm 5'4" and weigh around 125 lbs.

Apropos of your earlier post, I haven't tried for a 2x bodyweight pull-up in a long time. I did a 120lbs chin-up rep a couple of months ago (I think the...

Re: One arm chin up competition

As I mentioned in my last post, which was a little bit under a month ago, I've been working a routine where I do pulley-assisted one-arms (the Beast Skills method, where the other arm gives a small...

Re: One arm chin up competition

Derek, have you tried wrapping an old towel around the tie-down to keep it from digging in? That's what worked in my set-up which uses a chain and carabiner, but I'm sure it could work for tie-downs,...

Re: Tabata Timer

Here is a screenshot of the mac version at work (contains several pictures of Pukie, but are otherwise w/f safe).

Re: One arm chin up competition

Yesterday was Rosh Hashanah, the celebration of the Jewish New Year. I'm not particularly superstitious, but my mother was, and she used to think that whether things went well or badly on Rosh...

Re: Weighted Kipping Pull ups

Do any of you guys know where one can get a weighted vest that goes up to 100lbs? The one that most places seem to carry is the Xvest (http://www.thexvest.com/), which, as far as I can tell, only...

Re: One arm chin up competition

Steven, I know I should be using an active shoulder through the movement, but I have a lot of trouble doing that when I'm hanging by one arm. I guess that's sort of the problem! Any advice for...

Re: Tabata Timer

Alright, Hans. I downloaded the Developer's Preview of 1.6, and I can now get it to run. However, this is not a good solution for everyone: to Download the beta, you need an Apple Developer account;...

Re: Tabata Timer

Hey Hans,

I know your job isn't tech support, but I can't seem to get it to run on OS X. I get the following error:

Re: One arm chin up competition

Hi everyone. I've been working on the OAC by myself for a while, and since misery loves company, I figured I'd join in.

I'm 5'4", 125 lbs, and my primary sport is climbing so my pulling is generally...

I've read a couple places mention that you can make your own dip belt using a chain, a carabiner, and a weight-lifting belt. I'm embarrassed to say I'm not exactly sure what they mean. Are you...

I'm not a dedicated boulderer, but I do a lot of both bouldering and roped climbing. Climbing shoes are very personal, as has been mentioned before. At rock gyms, you'll also see there tends to be a...
