Cool, yeah I'm in. We need to get pics or videos of form up here to make sure we're all doing exercises the same way. If I kicked, swung, and went halfway up on pullups like most of the people I see at the gym then I could be doing twice as many reps..

Hmm.. kicking probably not.. but in the last few pull ups my body crumples up into a curve. Is that bad? I get 1-2 more out of this in the 2nd set.

 

1st set is all clean..

2nd in the end starts body curling position.

 

Is it that the CoG of the body is changed and the moment (mass x displacement) changes so it becomes easier since im decreasing displacement.

I hear ya. Actually I think swinging some, and doing partial reps is a good way to train when you're working on developing the strength for pullups. I was just talking about it in terms of this contest though, about having rules for form so everyone is on fair ground

Only 390 squats BB? If you do them everyday you should be able to do them nonstop for an hour within a few weeks. Should be able to hit one to two thousand pretty easy. But it can be bad for the knees.... (Also all that leg mass will weigh you down too much for other bodyweight exercises...)

 

I just might get 420 chins by the end of May...

Ok guys

 

Yeah Jay I really wimped out on the squats, I think I could of got 500,

 

I never did squats because they used to slow me down for sprinting when I played Rugby do I never did em.

 

I'm pretty weak on the chins and squats but as far as regular stuff I'll blow you guys clean owt da water!

Yeah (BW) squats just slowed me down too. They really didn't seem very functional. Just extra leg mass to lug around. Really heavy barbell squats can potentially increase sprinting speed though.

 

420 chins in an hour is really (extremely) good BB.

READ EM AND WEEP YOU SQUARES!!!!!

 

Well my intention was to do my new routine but I did 3 sets of 50 push ups and it didn't even touch me!!!

 

so I ended up sticking to the press ups and did an all time personal best of 1900!!!

 

This time I just kept on going and going, I didn't feel dead afterwards like I usually do either.

 

UMA BAAAAD MAAAAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I did a bunch of one arm pushups at home throughout the day Sunday until my upper body was fried. Then I really pushed myself and did a chest/tri/shoulder workout with weights at the gym on Monday. I'm going to rest those muscles for at least 3 or 4 days until they are fully recovered and then try to max out on one arm pushups per hour at the end of this week. I'll post numbers on here!

Sundays is mess around day and I did a bit of wieghts and a bit of calisthenics, ended up with a personal best of 50 dips in one set to go with my 20 chin-ups and 7 handstand pushups.

 

Awesome. Especially on the handstand pushups. Those are hard!

I don't lie, check out my videos!....I didn't train for it I just did it....it's really not that hard to believe because it was broken down into sets.

 

You just keep on going for an hour and see what happens!

 

Maybe you should try it....
