Started my back day with fiddy super wide grips (12,12,7,8,6,6)
Did another 30 @ the end (12,10,8) of wide grip + 2 sets of 10 neutral grip.
A hundred in total, but I remember reading in my Ahhhhhnold book that it's muuch better to do a hundred of one type of pullup as opposed to 50 wide & 50 close.

this would be overall since its body weight its fair game. whether you're 135lbs and skinny or 280lbs and ripped, 20 pull ups is a challenge!

12 reps @ 155lbs wide grip, fml lol

since everyone weigh differently, and doing different weight levels, everything should be calculated relatively

ex. halo

14 reps at 240lbs + 45lbs

(240+45)/240 = 1.19 multiplier x 14 reps = 16.63 reps at body weight

works for just about all exerises, hope my math is correct

WEEK 2 - SUNDAY AUGUST 21 TO SATURDAY AUGUST 28


Challenge: SQUATS (*with your body weight worth of weight, including the bar). as many as you can in a row
rules: do as many full squats as you can in a row without stopping. do not stop for longer than you would in a regular set.
must go to beyond parallel or deeper (ATG).
why?: The squat is the king of all exercises!

Squat Video & Instructions Video & Instructions | Muscle & Strength



*eg. if you weigh 170lbs. bar (45) + 45x2 (90) + 10x2 (20) + 5x2 (10) +2.5x2 (5) = 170lbs



Post up your body weight, along with your result for comparison too


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

Agreed^

Legs on Wednesday, I'm only squatting 150lb so hopefully I'll hit at least 35 reps.
