Re: The Dead-Hang Pull-up Society

I'm in!

When I first started, I had to do 90# assistance on the gravitron.

Now, I can do a PU from a standing position under the pull-up bar, with one step (no lifts) beneath me. This does not include jumping. I want a DHPU soooo badly! I (seriously) dream about it at night.

So - sign me up!

Also... maybe whoever graduates first can start the Recon Ron Pull-Up Program Society?

Here is a summary I borrowed from Carla Trembley's log:

Recon Ron Pull-up Program

1. Each step is done two weeks before advancing.
2. A workout consists of approaching the bar five times to do the specified number of repetitions in each set of pull-ups.
3. Select one day each week to omit the workout and do one-third the total repetitions for the day.

Step 1:1,1,1,1,1 Step 16:9,7,6,5,5
Step 2:2,2,1,1,1 Step 17:10,7,6,6,5
Step 3:3,2,2,1,1 Step 18:10,8,6,6,6
Step 4:3,2,2,2,1 Step 19:10,8,7,6,6
Step 5:4,2,2,2,2 Step 20:11,8,7,7,6
Step 6:4,3,2,2,2 Step 21:12,9,7,7,7
Step 7:4,4,2,2,2 Step 22:13,9,8,7,7
Step 8:5,4,3,2,2 Step 23:14,9,8,8,7
Step 9:5,4,3,3,3 Step 24:14,10,8,8,8
Step 10:6,4,4,3,3 Step 25:15,10,9,8,8
Step 11:6,5,4,4,3 Step 26:16,10,9,9,8
Step 12:7,5,4,4,4 Step 27:16,11,9,9,9
Step 13:7,6,5,4,4 Step 28:17,11,10,9,9
Step 14:8,6,5,5,4 Step 29:18,11,10,10,9
Step 15:8,7,5,5,5 Step 30:18,12,10,10,10
