Well, February is past--get reports in, but don't give up on pull-ups, even if you haven't reached your goals just yet. Remember it's always better to shoot at the moon....

Proper Knob--PR 14 narrow "semi neutral". Goal=15. Got 15 on 26 Feb!
robertscott--he's in, but hasn't reported a PR or goal
wilburburns--in, but no PR or goal yet
Jebus--will do weighted pulls, but no PR reported yet
jml--New test, PR12. Goal 13
slashnul--PR 10 pullups. Goal=11
Travis--New test, PR 12. Goal 13.
pdellorto--PR 16 chinups (I believe). Goal=17+. That is now official. 17 on 26 Feb!
robt-aus--PR 7 pullups, close grip. Goal=8. 9 Reps! Exceeds goal by 1 on 28 Feb!
Ryan A--PR 8, going for 10.
KPj--PR 18. A 10% increase rounds up to 20!
stuward--PR 10. Goal is to be able to do 10 daily for 5 days. Got 8 daily for 5 days, which is a significant improvement!
bam--7 wide grip pullups. Goal 8 Got 9 on 2 March!
jungledoc--PR 12 chinups. Goal 13. Maybe 14. I got the 13 today 1 March.
Velcropop--6 neutral grip. Goal 8.Goal reached, 20 Feb!
Rikblades--PR 10. Goal 11. Sorry, had to stop training for a couple of weeks due to an elbow injury. Get it later, Rik!
Kab3261--5 close-grip chins. Goal 7.
Nkkip--Counts 15. We'll trust his counting this time!
Hoister--PR BW+50x25. Goal 27 reps! 30 on 26 Feb!
Jebus--PR 1. Goal 2. Simple, huh?
NightFall--Just got BW+75x3. Goal 6.Got BW+80x5, feels that's equivalent to the goal Going to declare a new goal
Stephen Johnson--I think he's saying that his recent best is 10, so I assume goal is 11?
Higgy--10 going for 12
Griftan PR 8 pronated, 11 supinated. Goals of 10 and 15, respectively.
Flexo--PR15. Says his goal is 25, but I'm hoping that's the goal for the year, and that he (or she) will at least get 16 or 17 before the challenge is over. Edit--Flexo re-tested his max, and hit 21. So a 10% increase would be 23, and he wants to get 25. Go for it!
Nevage--can do 24 over 4 sets (neutral grip BW). His goal is 30 in 4 sets, but I'm betting that he can get this right now by changing his approach.

The goals are starting to fall! Keep it up![/quote]

I think I found out why my wide grip pull ups were plateauing... biceps! I changed to parallel grip pull ups for this challenge and thought I would be able to do more reps because I originally could always do more chins then pull ups. Turns out I can do many more pull ups than chins now and think it's my biceps that are limiting me. The first set I always hit 8, but then my biceps just fatigue to failure very fast.

Yesterday I did 8,6,4,4. Not good really. The thing I keep forgetting is that I'm a stone and a bit heavier than when I first started doing pull ups, so although my numbers have stayed the same, my weight's increased.

Thanks for the thread, definitely a motivator to focus.

I got 15 again today. Though I guess it's a PR technically because I actually gained 4 kg in the past month lol.

Hoister - Ouch! I hope you're okay!


No worries on the shoulder.
I've rested it and pulled out 30 reps again today with no issues...phew!

21 reps :grin:

The last was a real grinder, I could feel my legs climbing up those invisible ladders you seem to look for when struggling with pull ups, but i'm counting it.

Felt good. I've had a cold this week as well. I knew from the first 10 that I would get 20. I actually thought I would get well over 20 judging from the first 10 but started to die around 18 (my old PR). Definitely love those ladders. Never even got to do them as much as I hoped. I'm going to keep doing the pull up ladders, see if I can improve it any more.

I'm in. I haven't posted recently, but I just came back. I do wide grip pullups as part of my regular workout and my PR is 10, so the goal is 11 by mid April.
