What's another 15? Blisters say what words can't.

Is there a thread for 65 by November?

Jeff.. I remember doing about 14 PUs in 9th grade in 1963..but kept @ it or at least reved it up for Eugenes Birthday & was happy to do 51 PUs @ age 57.. so if that is a four fold increase over about 40 years then I predict Connor & his brother may be capable of 160 PUs as they reach the "senior " years Hopefully thats attainable.Congratulations to two inspiring young guys

Did Angie last night, got 31 on the first run of pullups, My grip got tired first which is unusual.
Elbow is OK today though.

James,
On Eugene's birthday challenge, I got 48 on my first attempt and 57 on the second. Both times it was the grip that failed. Talking with folks this weekend who are in the over 30 club,it was pretty consistant that the grip failed before anything else. BTW congrats.
David, thank you they routinely humble me and show what is possible, as you did on the challenge this year. You're in for next year aren't you?

When I did 41 last November, it was just total system failure, grip has never been an issue before, I am ready to take a week off and hit it again;

I am just sore all the time lately, and freaky weakness will come and go, like one day I'll be able to walk on my hands for a good 70 feet and get 8 or 9 HSPU, then another random day nothing. No consistency, neither rhyme nor reason. I'll just give it a rest for a week and try picking up from then.

By the way Jeff, awesome performance on those pullups numbers!

Grip is definitely the limiting factor for most on max rep kipping pull ups. For some climber freaks it's not, but for everyone else...

Do you guys follows a certain set/rep scheme, do ladders/pyramids, or is it just in doing tons of them, no matter the number you get in a set?

Damn, that's a bunch. Roger, any idea on what Cisco can do kipping or non kipping?
I'm shooting for being able to hit one pullup per year by my next bday. Mebbe. I'll definitely have it in dips and be able to do it at a factor of 1.5 mebbe. Hopping pushups I should be able to hit a factor of 3 and mebbe push it to 4 if I get that strong again.
And then...I'll be in the middle of the pack...mebbe. *sigh*
