Just curious if anyone has tried this kipping or otherwise.
I can do 19 in a row, under a minute, but I can't keep going for a minute.
What do you think is max humanly possible in that one minute?
I would like to make that number a goal.
Add in a minute of dips and a minute of 45# jump squats and eventually trade out the pullups and dips for a minute of muscle-ups and I would think that would be one short but exhausting workout.

when you can perform anything for more than about a minute, it becomes an endurance exercise. until you can accomplish this, it is a strength exercise. liken it to something some folks have trouble with. for instance, there was a day when 12 push-ups would have maxed me out in about 20 seconds. now i can crank them out for a minute solid, but i'm definetly tired at the end of that minute. there are others that can go well beyond that minute. does that make sense?

as for your goal...first just get strong enough to keep going for a minute. then start to build on that initial number.

I did 100 in 17minutes a while back, hit 25 in a row, but not sure how many in one minute. I'd imagine someone could bust out one/second.

One minute each of pullups, dips, and jump squats, no resting, and I think I'd puke!

Veronica.....I don't have "think" in my sentence referencing pullups, dips, and jump squats. I have "I know" in my sentence.

All the best,
Arden

Guiness says 42 in a minute is the record, see here:

http://www.recordholders.org/en/list/chinups.html

Although it doesn't seem to specify if kipping would be allowed, although I assume it is if it's not explicitly prohibited.

Then there's a thread here:

http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=961837

Where they claim that record of 42 was broken, I'm not sure if it wasn't authenticated or if the first page is just way out of date. Either way, it would appear that if you can get into the 30's you're doing pretty good.

Wow, 42 is all? I'm sure someone here could break that!

Doesn't Annie do 40 in a set, in one of the kipping videos? Not sure if it's under a minute, but if they're quick (and they always are) it's not impossible, and if she tried I bet she could bring it down.

Guiness is probably non-kipping pullups for that record. I can't imagine they would allow something most of the population considers cheating. Although they might have a category for each. Shrug.

Connie: under a minute and over a minute isn't requisite for strength OR endurance. It's more based on repetitions since strength and endurance are at opposite ends of a continuum.

Not sure if the record allows for kipping but if it does, AFT would very likely break it.
I timed only the pull-up sets from his 2:19 Fran video and the total was 45 reps in 48 seconds.
