Re: Eugene Allen's Birthday Pullup Challenge

Man, I've been away too long! I was fighting a cold/flu that just wouldn't give up so I tried this as soon as I could get back to the gym. Only managed 32. Only a measley 2 more that my previous max. Phooey! Gonna have to give this a go again. Sorry Eugene, I didn't make the grade this year.

Re: Eugene Allen's Birthday Pullup Challenge

Darn, you failed Veronica...you only PR'd. Wait a sec...howze that a failure? I'm going to call that a success. Well done. A woman, a mom, who is an Olympic weightlifter who can do 32 pullups. I'm willing to bet that you don't have all that many peers who can do what you can do. I can squat snatch air...maybe a light stick on a good day. I'll consider it a huge improvement when I can do an empty bar. I wish I could do what you can do.

Re: Eugene Allen's Birthday Pullup Challenge

Been kind of wondering where you've been, Veronica. Bunch of other people it seems haven't reported yet...

Aww thanks Eugene. I guess I did up the averages for my age group, huh?

I can't believe YOU can't squat snatch! For shame, for shame! Naw, I'm willing to bet you can do a whole bunch of stuff that I can't!

Re: Eugene Allen's Birthday Pullup Challenge

I have spent more than a dozen years doing triathlons and as a result have spent many thousands of hours and miles on my aero bike in an aero position with my shoulders rolled inward, elbows close together head down to be as invisible to the airflow as possible. As a result my shoulder mobility in the other direction as with the snatch or OHS is pitifully inadequate. CrossFit has a way of ferreting out your weaknesses and waving them like a banner for all to see. I have a long and billowing banner.

Re: Eugene Allen's Birthday Pullup Challenge

Sorry I'm late. 32 y/o I moved recently and didn't have much time to work on my p/u. I did 19 (pr) but didn't hit my goal. My bar is too short to kip on so I still need to work on that too.
