### 10,000 Pull-ups (or Chin-ups)

Posted: Mon Mar 19, 2012 7:00 am UTC
By popular demand, a thread for one of the world's great exercises. Like the 10,000 pushup thread or the 10,000 miles thread, do some pull-ups and then add the number you did to the old number until we reach 10,000.

I'll start out with my 35 I did over two sets.

0+35=35

Excellent. I would have started it myself, but I didn't want to be the only one doing them.

Here're mine from last week, just to help us get started:

35 + 51 = 86

(Looking like this: 18, 6 and 18, 9. I was doing pullups as the first exercise of a very long circuit, so by the time I rolled back around for the second go, I was in rough shape.)

EDIT1:

86 + 37 = 123

(37 = 18 + 10 + 9. I'm not deliberately stopping at 18 the first time each time... it's just sort of happening. Oh well. At least the subsequent sets are getting more solid.)

This included a set of 20, tying my old PR from when I was about 10lb lighter.

are there really only 3 people on the boards who do pull ups?

I guess I can add my totals too. Most people can barely do 1, so the lack of enthusiasm isn't without cause. That being said, I only just started being able to do them, but I'm sure you'll see my numbers rise as the weeks go on.

841 + 3 = 844

The hardest step up is going from zero to one, so it's good to see a new person on here.

big numbers here. I'm envious!

Some of my big numbers are from multiple sets. That 17 is actually from two different sets (although with 25 extra pounds each time.)

true. But at the same I'm unweighted and over 3 sets.

/flex

1008 + 16 = 1024

Well just keep doing 'em and soon enough you will be putting up some big numbers too.

Back after being sick.

These are usually from three sets, unweighted, done after my main workout. Typically, about half the reps are from the first set, and the other two are shorter.

2 sets 25 lb, as usual at the start of my exercising. Almost up to 2 sets of 12 each, at which point I will up the weight.

2 sets of 12 with 25 pounds for each. Next up: 28 pounds.

1150+17=1167
That 3 extra lbs. really made a difference. Did these in 2 sets last night and can really feel it today.

1167+20=1187

Indeed! Looking through my logs I was rocking 13 back in February. Hell, ~18 months ago I was proud to do 2.

1187 + 18 = 1205

One set no weight. In hindsight I should have have done 21/

No weight, one set totally drunk. Grrr... drunk power!
