    100 pull-ups by the end of the year challenge

    Sometimes you make a joke that you may wholeheartedly regret... but well, I guess it's too late

    Some of us decided to follow this, ehem, spontaneous idea and to start this thread, which by the way is open to anyone willing to join us!

    And the idea is to:

    a) first, master the pull-up
    and
    b) do it quickly enough to be able to do 100 pull-ups in total (not in a single workout or even month) before the year ends

    Once we get to our 1 rep with good form, it should be easy. We should aim at being able to do one solid rep per day till mid September, this way, even if we are not able to do more than 1 rep, we still can do 100 pull-ups before Dec, 31 (doing just one pull-up a day).

    So it's really a mutual support thread aimed at knocking this first real pull-up down.

    Ideas, links, videos, tips, all is welcome.

      Hey guys,

      You can take a look there, it's a pretty solid program, and good luck

        I'm in and also already following the plan Ryuji recommended. Also I would advice to aim for more than just one pull-up, because that isn't enough to get better while only doing pull-ups, for that you need to be able to do at least 5-6 in one go
        But as a last straw to get to the goal it's certainly helpful

          Yes, that's the idea, to show that it's not impossible: right now thinking about 5-6 pull-ups in a row seems like science-fiction, but of course the point is to progress beyond this one rep. It's just that even if we don't progress further than 1 rep this year, we can still make it (I mean, do 100 pull-ups before year ends).

          So it's a kind of incentive, something that will make us believe that we can do it And once we're good at it, bang, go for more reps!!!

                Big fan of pull ups right here! I'm in! Also I'd suggest roman rings over the pull up bar. While not taking anything away from the bars, I would say the Rings are conducive to a tether more balanced and stable physique

                  AsA are Roman rings the same thing as gymnastic rings? If yes, then I agree, but I think they are the next step as they need more core strength and make any exercise much harder

                        By the way, are we going strictly for pull-ups only (so, no chin-ups)?

                          I think we're going for pull-ups as the final goal but I think that training for that will include chin-ups as well...is that what you meant, twinkletoes ?

                            Pull-ups are harder and make more emphasis on back muscles rather then biceps, so we should aim to get there at one point, but I think it's OK if someone chooses to go for chin-ups for the time being.

                            Or maybe you mean whether we can mix them, like do 50 chin-ups and 50 pull-ups?

                            I don't know, what do you guys think?

                            Shouldn't it be a personal choice anyway? I wouldn't like to make this challenge too restrictive, it should be something that motivates us...

                              Right. You're both right. My headache is fogging my mind, sorry
