7695 + 20 very unmotivated = 7715
7715 + 20 = 7735
tripple digits of peace.
7861 + 30 = 7891
Getting em in erryday.
+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.
8021 +15 = 8036
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.
8266 + 26 = 8292
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.
