1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    +100 = 8021

    First time I've gone triple digits. The first 30 were with additional weight, and the last 70 were 10s between other exercises.

    I'm not sure I'll ever do that again, lol.

    8081 + 75 (Friday) and 110 (Saturday) = 8266

    That 110 was in 6 sets of 10+, and then inching up to 110 in sets of 8 or lower, over the course of a 2 hour workout (sprints, resistance, weights, heavybag and whatever footwork my jacked up knee can take). I'm going to see if I can crank out 200 at some point.

    I do not understand how anyone can do that many pull ups. I though I was no longer particularly weak but this makes me wonder.

    Anyway, I did eight straight on Sunday, which is a record for me, the rested and did four more then took a longer rest and did six. I am only counting the ones I do at my MA gym because they are unassisted and becauseI can get my head all the way above the bar, whereas at home in my basement the ceiling is too low.

    8292+35= 8327

    I've had constant DOMS in my lats for the last week or so from doing pull ups everyday. Throwing them in between sets and not going to failure makes it fairly easy to get high numbers.

    Here is the secret, right there, to getting lot of them done. Though, if you go to failure (which I have been doing for the middle stanzas,) you can still crank out good numbers by doing the last stanzas in sets of 5-8, and not going to failure. You take a breather, do an unrelated part of the circuit, and get back on the horse.

    If you go to failure, you can still get high numbers, but the number in each consecutive set will go down significantly after the first few.

    I'm going to say that above 80, though, it's a mental battle, and you have to play mind games with yourself to push through.

    I've done endurance sports for a good part of my life, and then sports like MMA which are not technically endurance sports, but that are extremely grueling, which makes the mind games fairly easy. Or, of not easy, at least, manageable.

    8327+85 = 8412

    Let's hit 10K within the week. Easy enough to do. I think that I can crank out 300 by Saturday, at least. About the same output from you younger, fitter kids, and we should be able to do it.

    We've been picking up some steam lately. Keep up the good work guys.

    8412 + 20 = 8432

    8482 + 10 + 15 = 8517. I'm going to start doing these on the way to work and on the way home. Hopefully my numbers start going up more significantly.
