Why is the thread locked?

I hit my record of 5.

Now trying for 5x5. Already hit 4x4 so I have a little more work to do.

My goal is 10, best I've done is 8 but I was weighing 99kg at the time! I'm currently 107kg and just hit 5x5 tonight! I don't think I could actually make a 6th rep in the first set though so 10 is gonna be a long time coming I think! I'm keen if the thread becomes unlocked or if there is an October challenge to give it a red hot go!

I locked the thread because the challenge was long over. We usually do it in the month of February. But good job on the 5x5!

Usually around the first of the year everyone is up for a challenge to get rid of the effects of the holiday. Pull ups seems to be the favorite since a combination of strength increase and fat loss combine to give a good score. They're good to do year round anyway but more than a month long challenge is just too hard for most of us to commit to.

The goal now is to get as fat and weak as possible so that come February you can make the most impressive gains.

TO THE DONUT-TRON!
