My gym only goes to 100lb dumbells so If I row more than that, I take a hammer curl bar and load 25s onto it.

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

WEEK 8 - SUNDAY OCTOBER 2 TO SUNDAY OCTOBER 9


Challenge: wide grip PULL UPS. as many as you can in a row
rules: do as many wide grip pull ups as you can in a row without stopping.
do not use any cheating motion to help like kicking or swinging your legs.
must go to 95% or better extension.
why?: wide grip pull ups are a fantastic way to work your back and add width. secondary muscles used include shoulders and arms.



this is strictly for fun, so use your own honor and dont cheat.

I got 10 today. Hands slightly closer but still wider than shoulder width. I'm not going to count this for the challenge though as I feel they weren't true "wide grip" pull ups.

Berz out.

How wide would you say your hand have to be to qualify for this challenge. I'm not nit picking I'm just wondering what you guys consider wide grip. Wide grip would have your arms in a W shape at the top rather than an inverted M right?

11 @ 198lbs

I've bulked up by almost 20lbs, but I can still do the same amount as I used to do at a lower weight for all my body weight exercises, weird

That's sick. I just hit 10 during Monday's workout, but probably going to lay off of them for a bit. The last 2-3 reps put a lot of strain on my wrist, and hurts like fuck sometimes.

17 wide grip pullups @ 148lb

Lol, been gradually losing weight ever since school started (8lb lost). Prioritizing school over food for this semester. Losing strength as well

I donno about everybody else, but my hands are at the very end of the wide grip. I'm going as wide as possible
