damnit halo! im tired of your bragging! jk if I could lift as much as you id tell the world.
15 wide grips, then 12, then 8, then a few sets of 6..they should be considered weighted pullups since im carrying like 10 lbs of fat...lol
5'6, 177 lbs, been @ the gym 2.5 years, been lifting properly for about a year and a bit. (used to be 135)
not to go off topic, but is there a certain way to do muscle ups, or is it one of those "practice makes perfect" type of things

I've always thought about using the assited pullup machine and setting the weight high so that it propells me upwards (it would be loud as he'll tho). im capable of doing clap pullups & stupid amounts of dips, but its the whole "wrist motion" that I can't do.

Never found the wrist motion as a big factor to the muscle up, because you should naturally be able to pull yourself up to the dip.
IMO, it's a combination of back and arm strength.
Lots and lots of weighted pullups (high weight, low reps) did it for me.

You think you'd be able to pull off 40+ body weight?

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.

brb gotta cut another 20lbs first. haha


its crazy how when you work out low reps for max strength, your endurance dies. by #12 my everything was burning.


i guess thats the idea of these challenges. to get everyone to take a look at something a little different!

19 overhand a bit further than shoulder width apart @ 151lb

I think I could have pulled 2 or 3 more, got lazy haha will try again Saturday LOL

I agree with RRxtar. I generally only do 5-8 reps when doing weighted pullups. Body weight to failure was actually a challenge lol

probably has to do with the fact that you are gaining weight overall when doing lower reps... ie, increasing your bodyfat%. Unless you are doing cardio on the side, you aren't getting your HR up for any extended period of time with strength phases.

i never really go for reps and always maintain the same weight.. but even when i train 5-6 rep max, I can still do roughly the same amount of reps with body weight exercises...
