I'll give a dollar to people who graduate with there first one. But only for the first ten people who sign up, that will leave me 20 bucks to my name. But it's for a great cause.

Re: The Dead-Hang Pull-up Society

Hi! Can I join?

I've been doing CF for about 6weeks now. I can do jumping pull ups and have started using the thickest blue band to try and do proper pullups (cos I think jumping is cheating and not helping me progress) however I find I still have to give myself a little push up from the bottom using my free foot. Is this cheating? We did Nicole on the w/e and this was the only way I could get through it.

I used to be able to do chin ups and I think 7 was my max (back in my rugby playing days of 2+ years ago). however, I'm pretty sure these weren't proper DHPU except for maybe the first one as I was standing on a chair and could reach the bar from there.

Should I continue with the band and perhaps practise doing some negatives (go to the top and lower myself a little, and then pull back up, progress to lowering further each week)? How many should I practise in one go? 3? 5? 10? *shudder*

*waves to everyone*

Re: The Dead-Hang Pull-up Society

Unfortunately I can't be part of your group but I just wanted to say that this a great initiative. Good idea. I hope that one day, there will be nobody in that "Society" so you can start the "2 Dead-Hang Pull-up Society".

Good luck.
