    2210 + 53 (yesterday) and +38 (today - light workout day) = 2301

    Rings are hard, especially if you try to keep your grip wide at the same time.

    Ah, I see. I'm built the other way. My legs are way stronger than my upper body. I love upper body (but not core) strength pretty quickly.

    That was 15 fingertip pullups falling down drunk. She was staggering all over the place. I think that people are built for specific exercises. I have never beat 20 pullups (if I hung a while, I would just get more tired), but I've been able to crank out over 70 pushups in a minute, and I can easily do hundreds during a workout with very little impact on anything else.

    That's really the danger. The other day, I figured that I could actually make it to 100 if I really did nothing else, but it seems so boring, and I was up to 60+ already, with a lot of other shoulder exercises in between.

    I was doing cleans and dead hang pull ups. Tiring as all hell.

    2331 + 33 = 2364

    I do mine after a few hours of climbing so not that many but there are people in my gym who don't do bar pullups at all since they're too easy.

    2424 + 7 = 2431

    I got to the club too late to try multiple sets so I did one set to 7, and then played. I had wanted to try at least one more set after playing but was suffiiciently tired that I forgot.

    It's true. Climbers are good at pullups (generally). You are what you train for. Me, I suck at climbing.

    Make sure you add it to the previous totals for us. Welcome to the thread. :)

    2531 + StylinGuy's 25 + my 50 weighted ones today = 2606

    2776+52= 2828 - nothing today.

    How old are you guys? I am 37, and my recover rate is definitely slower than it used to be, and my body definitely feels a lot more banged up then it did in my 20's, or even early 30s.
