    One Arm Pullup race.

    OK, I'm starting this competition to force myself to get to one. To win, you have to have proof, ie. a videotape of you doing the full range of motion with just one arm. It must be completely unassisted by the other arm, so it must not come in contact with the pulling arm. I suggest keeping it down for clarity.

    You must NOT be able to do a one armed pullup currently. To enter, list your bodyweight and pullup max.

    Pictures not acceptable.

    I suggest using a supinated grip.

    Alright I'm in, I gotta buy a pull-up bar though.

    I'm 165lbs 6'1 and can do somewhere between 12 and 14 chins. I'll upadate with the real number when I get the bar.

    Deegs, what are your stats?

    this is gonna fun. i think it'd be a good idea to have races every once in a while for motivation. we can have a monthly one or something like that.

    Do one a month regardless of if the previous is finished or are you expecting to have this feat conquered in a month?

    6'1" - 228. I can do 7-13 chins depending on the day... 13 being a perfect day.

    I can't do an unnassisted one arm pullup. 6 weeks ago I did do 3 1/2 assisted one arm pullups. Am I disqualified?

    no, as long as you can't do an unassisted one arm pullup you qualify dude. i would be pretty fucking impressed if you managed one at 228.

    im gonna let my lower body atrophy

    Squating releases the most growth hormones so I'm gonna stick with it. Plus if next month happens to be a lower body challenge you don't want to be extremely weak.

    i kid i kid, but cutting a few pounds of fat might be a good strategy.

  15. #15
    Yeah, I don't got much to cut. I'm the perfect example of an ectomorph. Btw is this comp for strict chins only, or are kipping ones allowed?

    i think a little english is ok, but definitely not crossfit style kipping. we should decide together once the feat is recorded if it is acceptable or ridiculous. i could definitely see someone taking advantage of this and doing a jump into a pullup.

    Sounds good.

    So I went and tried to do one but the only chin up bar I have is quite fat in comparison to normal chin up bars... and with no help at all I could barely hold on let alone move.

    So I am now 100% officially in this race.
