Re: Women can't do pull-ups?

Heck, I'm a dude and I've got problems with pullups. (Granted, I actually have 3 excuses - namely, shoulder surgeries, but still.) I can do plenty of kipping pullups, but strict deadhang? Can only do 2 or 3 of this - and it's not a shoulder strength issue either; I can push press about 155# without 'the dip.'

Some people are just better at it and some have worked at it longer; but far be it from me to make fun of women when most of them regularly kick my butt @ the box every morning. LOL
