Oh-oh; y'all are in trouble now! For all you procrastinators, I'll be updating the spreadsheet around 2000 EST. So, if you get in by then, you're in. If you're late, you'll have to bribe me.

Lynne,

There were some of us who signed up since your last post in Feb, but our registrations are now buried in the "archive through ..." list. Just making sure if you checked those already.

Anyway, I'll re-post my registration for your convenience:

Lynne, I read this post recently. I'd like to add myself to the list before "registration" closes tomorrow, at the end of the month. Starting at 8. Goal is 30 by 01 Sep 04.

Q, Thanks; I went back to the last chart post and harvested all the candidates (I hope). After posting tonight, anyone I missed can let me know.

Lynne: I'm late. I'm also not at 30. Last tested max was 17.

Thanks!

Brian

Brian,
You'd posted you were at 17, wanted 30 by May, and 40 by Sept. I didn't re-post the May challenge (guess I could since it was early in the thread). So for the Sept challenge, I assumed you (and Kelly and Scott and me) were going from 30 to 40.

Ben,

Taking each one at a time:

1. Relatively new trainee.

New to training pull-up properly (1 month), but have been training for 5 years allthough most of that was poor training in retrospect. When I was young I could do 10, last year I would do a couple sets of six-eight during my bi-weekly workout the eighth one not always reached and usually hard, and I followed that routine for 9 months.
Not sure what you mean by relativly though.

2. You are re-gaining reps that you could once perform.

Like I said 10 is the most i've ever known myself to be able to do before training them.

3. You have exceptionally low body fat.

Not with my diet, ha! ha! I'm 73kg at 5ft10.

4. You are using some sort of performance enhancing substance (use your imagination), which I do not condone!

Lots of milk and love! But no drugs.

What I think has happened is that if I haven't made much effort with a movement or type of training then because I have made fair progress with other types of training, the other muscles catch up quickly. This happened with grip strength as well and my deadlifting which went from 180lb - 300lb in a month.

Ok Ben I've laid it all bare I have no secrets with my pull-up training, perhaps you can be less mysterious and tell us yours!
