Re: Eugene Allen's Birthday Pullup Challenge

Happy Birthday Eugene!

Goal was 50, but came up short with 43.

Arms were strong and felt like I could've pulled more than 50, but grip strength started failing at about 37. Still, my previous PR was 34, so I feel good about the improvement.

Oh, and age is 35.

Thanks for the challenge!

Re: Eugene Allen's Birthday Pullup Challenge

I'm bummed.

I did my max effort pullups last night before our affiliate's WOD but I only got to 27. That is a new PR for me by 1, but it is 10 short of my goal. Problem was grip -- arms were fine and surely could have cranked out ten more... but fingers failed me.

I am still going to try to hit that goal by the end of the year.

Congrats to everyone and Happy B-Day Eugene.

Re: Eugene Allen's Birthday Pullup Challenge

Happy Birthday Eugene!!

Been sick since Fri Haven't been able to workout except for mustering up 10 overhands and just some basic other stuff . (I just can't lose my pull up strength!) Anyway, I was gonna use that as an excuse but instead I decided to do chin ups instead of overhands. Goal was 20. Did 12 chinups, no kipping. Just doing those pooped me right out. Even with a full cup of caffeine.
It could've been worse... I'm actually happy w/ that.

Congrats to EVERYONE whether you reached your goal or not!

Re: Eugene Allen's Birthday Pullup Challenge

As Ahmik said I did 20. My current pr is 21 and my goal was 30. I have been concentrating more on strength gains than body weight stuff lately so Im sure this with a little weight gain didnt help.

I am happy that my grip wasnt my limiting factor and once I start working on gtg pullups Im sure my numbers will jump up.

BTW Im really impressed with Ahmik's 58. After being up for that long and everything you had been going through 58 is an amazing number!

Re: Eugene Allen's Birthday Pullup Challenge

Happy belated B-Day Eugene. I got 10 versus my goal of 15, but not too bad considering. This really helped me work on my kip, I should have 15 by the end of the year.
