Shamelessly copying Josh's Curl Wars idea, I got the idea for a pull-up war. Bigger guys will probably have a bit of an advantage with this format, but here's my idea: how much total weight (you, plus any additional weight hung from your waist) can you perform a dead-hang pull-up (palms away) with? Like the Curl Wars, this could be an on-going thread. Who can make the 200 club, the 250, the 300, and yikes, the 350 club?

Yesterday was the first day since July, when I hurt my left bicep picking up an atlas stone, that I've been able to perform a pull-up with no pain. So, I should be able to make some decent progress over the next couple of months. I'll make a video after I get a few workouts under my belt.

For the video, the easiest way to record the weight would probably be to simply stand on the "zeroed" scale with the weight already attached to your waist, either before or after you perform the pull-up/chin-up. And make sure the bottom of your chin clears the top of the bar.

Following the list of "Clubs" is a ranking of the performances calculated by dividing the total amount of weight performed for a pull-up/chin-up by the person's body weight.

Nice idea Eric! I think we already have some guys on the board for the 350 club. Don't think, this feat is so rare. 400 pound club?

Seems like most household scales are going to top out at the 300/350 range. Probably will have to weigh BW and added weight separately?

Maybe best to shoot a video that establishes a baseline as well.

I am open to anything. i just plain like challenges period.

I'm down. Been a long time since i've done a pullup. Last time i checked I could do 100# for 2 reps. 350 club is going to be quite hard at the light BWs.

I am friends with a guy on YouTube that owns a record in this type of challenge. I think his YT name is ExtremistPullup.

Jedd, I've seen that guy and his pullups are plain crazy.
I think he's done a total of 400+, at 200#BW and 200something in weights

Here is todays workout, I am happy with this for a first day back with weighted pull-ups. Did a bunch of singles with 70lb and a single with 80lbs. Goal by the end of the month is to be over 300. I usually do better with a taller bar with a thinner grip. Goal is to get my bodyweight back down and my pullup volume up.

Sounds like this is right up my alley. I regularly work with +57#'s. I hit +74#'s testing my max about 8 weeks ago, which puts me at 319 total. I'd like to hit +106#'s in the next year.

Yep, hands facing away. Chin over the bar. Be careful working them into your routine if you don't do them regularly, cuz they can aggravate elbows.

Alrighty. I've never tried for a 1 rep max on this, but I usually work them with low rep sets... I'll have to give it a shot soon.
