    ... but I just set my personal record for pull-ups and have been dying to bray about it like a donkey.   Twenty-four... 24, one score and four.

     

    The last three weren't too pretty... but hey, 24 pull-ups!

      Oh. I thought this was going to be about disposable training pants! Nice job on the pull-ups, though. Smile

        Me too, lol! The arm exercise pull-ups didn't even cross my mind.

              I don't think I could even do 1.  That is seriously impressive.

                It is.   I used 24 of them in one day.

                 

                What were you thinking about?

                  mommie, wow.

                  Not if it makes sense.

                      I went home and told everyone when I could do 1 without assistance.

                       

                      24 might be grounds for a frikkin party.

                       

                        I have one of those bars that hang from the door frame and I've had it for months and I can still barely do one.  I think I'm doing it wrong.

                          WHY? Every time someone does something like this I have to go see how I measure up...so sad. It's a big part of the reason i got hurt, and burned out earlier this year.

                          Hoping to get up to 8 if i lose another 5 lbs.  Not gonna work out or anything, though.

                            Awesome. I dig pull ups, too, though I admit to have gotten a little distracted by running recently. A solid 10, no more. 24? No way in hell.


                            Mmmmm...beer

                              Nice job!!

                               

                              This reminds me, I've been slacking, need to get back on track.  I was up to 5, now I'm down to 3.  This is coming from not being able to do any a couple of months ago. 

                               

                              For those that can only do one, or none, start with negatives, they work great.  I went from zero to my first pullup in a week doing negatives.
