When you can do more pull-ups than the guy at the gym…
It’s Sunday “Story Time” again 😉 …
In 2009 I moved from Arlington, VA back to my hometown of Newton, MA and worked for a commercial gym until Eric and I opened our own gym in 2011.
One day I was training at this commercial gym and going through a circuit of exercises which included pull-ups.
I wanted to use the pull-up bar, but there was a guy using it and doing multiple sets.
So I asked him, “Can I work in with you?”
He looked at me very seriously and said, “Not if you do more pull-ups than me.”
I replied, “I can’t guarantee that.”
Which was the truth.
I saw his pull-up skills, and knew mine, and it was clear that I was stronger at pull-ups than he was.
In 2008, after I learned that I could do pull-ups, I did them every time I trained and got really skilled and strong at them.
So strong that…
→ I intimidate guys at the gym when they see me do pull-ups.
→ I regularly train sets of 10 pull-ups.
→ My max set of overhand grip pull-up as of the last time I tested it is 18 pull-ups.
→ I can do a 24 (53lbs) pull-up on call, any day, anytime.
→ My heaviest weighted prone grip pull-up as of the last time I tested it is 30kg (66lbs).
→ My heaviest neutral grip the last time I tested is 32kg (70lbs).
→ I even dabble in different body weight variations of the pull-up such as L-Sit pull-ups…
→ and alternating grip, explosive pull-ups.
(you can watch videos of all of these pull-ups HERE.)
I LOVE to play around with and test my strength in all variations of the pull-up because I think pull-ups are FUN!
