for ten years i had a goal of doing 10 dead hang pull-ups. yesterday, the day before my 46th b-day i did it!!! number ten wasn't very pretty, but it was chin over the bar.
i was stuck at 5 pull-ups til i started crossfit the beginning of this year. in march i started greasing the goove and, BAM! 2 months later, doubled my 5.
had to share with folks that could appreciate it.

Brilliant, Connie. I turn 40 next month though I've always been fairly strong, pull-ups have always been a big problem for me. You've given me some hope I can change that. Grats. :-)
