You didn't fail, you found another way that didn't work, which takes you one step closer to what will work.

Failure is all in your head.

Didn't get the 6. I started with a 5, and ended with a 5. Those migth have been better in form, and I was maybe closer to the six, but no progress yet.

I think I migth have overloaded and approached the pull-ups in a wrong way. I try to loose the frequency a little (to 2/week) and include some eccentric only work. Focus on pure form with no twitching or other BS cheating.

No wonder I didn't get the goal. I have "accidentally" bulked roughly 3-5kg. Whoops. Most of that is muscle, atleast according to the mirror. Of course a little fat along the way. Doing high frequency pull-ups got my lats bigger tho. So no time wasted there.

The trick to this challenge is to synchronize it with a cut so you finish the competition lighter than you started. That's usually good for a couple of reps. Of course an easier way is just injure your back in January and let it heal in February.

Ah, will need to record my result as 0.
Haven't retested and didn't actually train over the month.
I don't feel bad, wife and I had a great month on many other fronts.
And the running's not going too badly. I'm succeeding with getting some volume without injuring myself.

Anybody else have results to report? February is pretty much over.

I totally forgot about it to be honest. Trained back last night but was too keen to try out pre-exhausting my lats to remember to do some chins.

You didn't do the 20 rep Christmas squat challenge either. Are you duckin'?

oh yeah, neither I did. I love high rep squats too. Not sure why I didn't do that one.

I promise, next challenge, I'm there (as long as it can be easily worked into my goals).
