A tracking mechanism to make sure we're adding properly, which is what it seems that others are doing haha.

FYI. at this rate we're only going to get 28-30k or so.

1676 + 50 = 1726.

1676 + 50 = 1726.

1726 + 63 (yesterday) and + 52 (today) = 1841

We need some more participants. I'm doing over 250 a week. Not sure how much more I can do unless I concentrate solely on pullups for pull exercises.

Yep, I agree. Hopefully some folks will pick up pullups. I'm doing about as many as you are and don't think I could do anymore. The weighted pullups are ripping me UP...but definitely seeing nice results in my back/biceps.

+ 30 to get a nice pump going before going out tonight.

= 1871.

I love this thread. I've done at least 40 pull-ups a day for the past six months or so; can I get back credit?

Edit: just did 30 in my apartment,

= 1901
post #81 of 925
+ 20 = 1921.

My lats are going to look like batwings by the end of this year.

So here's a question that's both dumb and vain--does anybody know why there's no Guinness record for most pull-ups in one minute? Is it too difficult to measure, or are standards too divergent?

This site seems to carry the torch right now, but my impression of Guinness Records is that if none exists right now I could sneak in and make it into the database with only 40 or so.

1921 + 40 = 1961

Woah... hold the presses. Did you say that you can do 40 bw pullups in a minute? Are you an uber-climber or something? The only people I've known who can crank out 20+ sets are all climbers. One girl I knew weighed maybe a buck ten, and I saw her do 15 fingertip pullups easily, falling down drunk.

In any case, I think that we have ourselves a ringer right here.

I'm being optimistic with 40; I can do 30-35 right now, because the fully-extended-arm requirement is a bitch. My procedure is pretty much to do 23 in the first 30 seconds, hang for a bit, and then bang out another 12. But I bet with time I could get up to 40. (I'm not a climber, I'm just really light and built funny with legs that are practically vestigial appendages.)

15 fingertip pullups is huge for a girl. You should tell her to get in touch with the Guinness people too.

1961 + 40 = 2001

Did a dropset today with +45(7)+35(3)+25(3)+BW(4). Damn near killed me. Did a few additional BW ones as well.

2001 + 17 + 30 = 2048
post #88 of 925
4 sets of 10 as part of my normal back routine today.

2048 + 40 = 2088

If you can only squeak out 9 chin ups in 3 sets, I think they should count as 1 each. We should be encouraging those who can't do pull ups to start with chin ups then work over to pull ups.

Counting sets of 30 chin ups would be helpful in padding our numbers, but I think it would go against the idea behind this thread.

2088 + 15 = 2103
