Pullup Time

Friday 070518
With a continuously running clock do one pull-up the first minute, two pull-ups the second minute, three pull-ups the third minute… continuing as long as you are able.
Use as many sets each minute as needed.
Post number of minutes completed to comments.
“The squat, press, deadlift, and bench press have been used for decades by the strongest athletes on the planet. There is good reason for that. Any program that doesn‚Äôt use them is inferior to one that does, and any athlete who neglects them is doing less than that is possible in his performance, and less than what is absolutely necessary to maximize his strength.” –Mark Rippetoe

    A2– Trash!?!?!? Oh A2— I never suggested trashing, but sometimes a errant HSPU sneaker or wall ball may gently glance a wall ever so slightly, but I do try to keep it to a minimum.
    As long as you called me out…
    Hey keith… did you happen notice what time A2 posted? 2:15am? It seems she is not getting enough of a workout at the Black Box. Sounds to me like sleepytime burpies may be in order….

  • Brett_nyc

    12 rounds for today.
    Better than last time by 2 rounds, but not good. I should be doing better than this.

    Allison,
    “There are only three sports: bullfighting, motor racing, and mountaineering; all the rest are merely games.” – Ernest Hemingway
    Here’s the video I promised you – two women who are definetly not playing. Ines Papert and Audrey Gariepy work their way up Nemesis (WI6+, 160m), Stanley Headwall, British Columbia, Canadian Rockies. Papert is considered by many to be the best female ice climber in the world. Competing against a mixed field, she won the world championship a couple of years ago. Her rock climbing skills are not to shabby either!

  • Allison? Allie? A2?

    Keith don’t listen to that big meanie
    I had to stay up to watch my friend on Poker After Dark.
    Trash my gym AND have me do sleepytime burpies?? You’re full of great ideas Dan.
    At least you’re doing your homework. You just picked a fight that you’re going to lose! I’m going to pick you up and drop you.

  • brett_nyc

    what’s with all the back squats Kim?

  • Kim

    I have a shoulder injury. The doc’s instruction was no work above the chest other than physical therapy. Keith has been kind enough for modify workouts for me that account for this limitation. There is a good XFit Journal article called “Working Wounded” (Or something like that)about modification for injury.
    The injury is healing very slowly. It’s in a place where there is no muscle to strengthen and the damaged ligaments just take a long time to heal because they’re don’t profuse like muscle. I’m going on three months without being able to climb. Arg!
    Back squats work the core and legs with minimal work above – though my PT would prefer I didn’t do them either.
    Best, Kim

  • brett_nyc

    I see. good luck

  • Allison? Allie? A2?

    Who’s going to the cert in phili? I’m thinking about signing up. I’ll be ready by then right?

  • dan

    I think you mean Pittsburgh A2?
    More sleepytime bupries for you….

  • Allison? Allie? A2?

    Grrrr. Whatever.
    Are you from LA Dan??

  • http://www.allisonbojarski.blogspot.com Allison

    A2, I think you would definitely be more than ready for the Pittsburgh cert. And that would mean TWO Allison’s at one cert, as I’m planning to go to that one!
    For today’s WOD, I managed 10 rounds of not-exactly-dead-hang-but-not-jumping pull-ups from the 20-inch box (i.e., mostly arms and back did the work, with just a tiny bit of help from the legs–I really need to learn to kip!), followed by 5 rounds of jumping pull-ups. I was pretty happy with that.
    The post-WOD handstand training inflicted by KW was only slightly terrifying, and I excelled at the headstand portion of the skillwork, which made me feel much better about the whole thing.
    On another topic, what the fuck is this “Ladder Racing” stuff? And when can we start doing it at the Box?:

    Im about 80% right now with going to the cert in Pittsburgh. All depends in the next few weeks.
    Anyways, for today’s workout 11 rounds + 6 pullups…

  • Jeff

    Allie 2 – What’s your schedule @ NYSC?

  • Allison? Allie? A2?

    anyone going to the santa cruz cert?

  • Allison? Allie? A2?

    Jeff- F.H or soho?
    Are you going to come in?

  • http://www.dammit.com dammit

    15 rounds plus 15

  • http://www.self-aggrandizement.com josh

    Made it to 7 rounds – with a 45# weight (1/3 BW) hooked around my hips.
    Then tried to start again in the next round with muscle-ups; my grip was so fried that my hands would slip through on each attempt.
    So, picked up at 8 the following round, and made it to 11 unweighted.
    In short: that was a retarded idea.

  • Jeff

    Allie 2 – Soho
    I’m going to try to come in on the day(s) I can’t make it to the Box on time.

  • Kevin

    12 rounds
    Had to stop cuz a callus was ripped wide open. Nice photo op. I hope this thing heals in time for the Cotter seminar. Whole lot of athletic tape.
    Nice job on todays WOD everyone.

  • Allison? Allie? A2?

    My schedule is under major construction but I’ll probably end up working T, Th, F 11-6 or 6-11p , S&Sn 2-9
