Nice job! I love the thick bar on the chains with optional rolling handles 

Thanks @Joseph Sullivan

That's actually one of my thinner bars, I also have a fat bar that's 60mm with rolling handles and the  handles are about 69mm. It's fun watching bodybuilders slip of those things without doing one rep, with the bar being hung on chains it wants to swing away from you when you grip it on the handles.  It's not really any more difficult than a fixed bar, it's more of a proprioceptive challenge that most people have never encountered and it messes with their head. My 12 YO son can do pullups on the rolling handles on of both of those bars and my vertical pullup handles, he evens skins the cat on the vertical handles. Weighing next to nothing helps a lot in that respect.

This may be the hardest and most painful variant of pull ups/chin ups I have tried. 265 pounds today. This was after a buffet assault and after high rep sledgehammer wrist ulnar and radial deviation exercises.... so may have gotten more reps if my forearms were not already fried, I do not know. 

Finger tip chin ups with palm and forearm flush with the beam of a barn. The wood was not smooth. Felt like my skin was going to rip off. Did 3 sets of 7 reps. I would compare this kind of pull up to a preacher bench curl, as there’s no movement of the lower arm at all due to being flush against the wood. Hard as can be.

Nice. Big forearms man. But you should upgrade that Deere to a Kubota!

That's really impressive for guy your size!

When I was arm wrestling (nothing serious just with guys at the football club) I did a lot of timed holds like that and it built a good base for the setup. I could hold it there until I saw them starting to gas out and then hit the go button and take some of the bigger guys by surprise.

I was thinking the same. Very good for arm wrestling. I did these after wrist wrench, thumb blaster, anvil horn lifts, and 3 inch bar inverted rows, so my grip was toast. I want to see how much I can do with this when I’m fresh.

I can do 8 very strict, legs straight and whole body stiff and straight, dead hang, chin over bar , pullups at 93 kg body weight. Took me half a year to feel strong and comfortable at this level of stricteness . You should never underestimate good old strict pullup. It's a beast for heavy guys. I am in the middle between heavy and light guys I suppose.

Chin ups seems to very popular in Finland with many competitions and stuff. Haven't really seen that elsewhere. 

Is there some history behind it or.. Did it just happen that way? 🤔

Started from just couple guys who also held "military bench press" competitions aka. feet up bench press with body weight and grew from there. So nothing special, just shows what perseverance of few people can do to a sport. 

I just personally think chin-ups are such a basic movement everyone should be able to do them.

Great job Jesse, that is some serious strength! Just in case somebody doesn't know,  Big Jesse is not only stronger than Fu%$ at Grip, kettlebells, Bench, military, you name it but GREAT at eating tons of food- He has one of the most entertaining YouTube account.

That was damn impressive dude! Has anyone in the world ever done a full ROM pull/chin up with a total weight of 200kg before?

Juha Harju has a YT video of someone chinning with 200kg. There are judges, but I don't know if it was tested or even a federation officiating.

One person in Finland has done 200kg in a mock meet, but he isn't natty (nor has he ever clamined to be).

I'm sure there are people you have done way over 200kg expecially with the use of PEDS.

I looked it up but it seems to be a very rare feat. Some of the best I know of can't do it.

Brian Shaw could do a couple reps when he weighed 200kg.  Oberst can do a pullup at over 400 lbs.  Not sure how much Kirill weighed at his heaviest, but there was a YouTube video of him doing a couple.

I've never seen anyone human doing them with that much weight though...

@Mike Rinderle

I was going to say that I'm not sure that's really the same thing, but when talking total weight of course it is. The ones I've seen from Brian though was very far from strict from what I remember. 

I think Steven proto has the GWR for total weight at 405? With a pull up. If a heavy strongman did even one pull up for an attempt they would break the record. Perhaps there were some other rules, I don't have the motivation to look it up

Yea, I wasn't talking strict.  I just know I've seen a video of him and Kirill doing them somewhere.   And Robert Oberst just had a video on the youtubes answering questions from fans, where he said he could do one.  He only weighs about 405-410 though.  Lol... only.

Definitely not natty for any of them either.
