    Let's see if we can collectively get to 100k by New Year's. Just take the previous total and add how many you did today to it.

    I'll start it off.

    So, deadhang, or does everything go? BTW, for those who think that the crossfit ones are easy, they are not, and possibly exercise the core more.

    easy is relative, but theyre far easier than a dead-hang chin/pull-up. momentum is a wonderful thing.

    Eh I do them just short of deadhang. I tend to get rotator cuff tenderness if I do a complete deadhang.

    did a dozen dead hang finger tip pullups. Been at least a dozen years since I've tried... great to find out I can still crank them out and haven't packed on too much weight.

    I do weighted pullups, so should mine count for more? :D

    And likewise on the "just short of deadhang". Shoulder problems prevent me from going all the all the way down.

    237.

    Weighted pullups are awesome. If I could only do one exercise for the rest of my life, it would be a tough choice between weighted pullups and overhead squats.

    I've done 46 pullups between Monday and Tuesday so far. Deadhang and I usually go for a high pullup; like collarbone to the bar. The bars at my gym are not conducive to kipping pullups...

    Would you do kipping pullups if you could? Honestly, I've never tried them but I can't think about them without seeing this:
