Spin off.... summer of “ STRICT pull ups” (all kinds)

Recommended Posts

I've seen Jedd do a Rolling Thunder pull up with a 100 lb plate tween his legs.  So 340 -360 ish.  That was the most impressive pullup I've ever seen live.

Do you know if he has a video of this pull up? He should try to take the record from Alexey.

Not sure.  He did it after a contest when we were all doing feats.

In my opinion rolling thunder pull-ups are more about pull-up strength than they're about grip. If I ever get a chance to officially do it I'm sure I could push it to +400lbs.

That was awesome.   No offense intended, but those are the old style RTs.  Way easier than the newer version. 

On those, I could do 400 lbs... if I could do a 400 lb pullup of course.  Lol

Jedd did his with the new version.  That definitely brings the grip in a little more.

Sure they're older version, but for me the difference between these handles and the new (new new) ones is 2.5kg at most. When I lifted my PR with the newest model (102.5kg) my record with the handle in my left hand was 102.5kg.

No offense meant.  Seriously.  Would love to see you set the record on a set of new handles.  Even on the old... that was nuts.

Didn't take any offense 😁 Every handle is definitely different in grip sport, and has to be taken into account

Just started doing Middle Finger Pullups. I started out with a mixed grip then went to palms up. Was able to get a pause at the top on a couple.

Nice job Mike, I love the smoke in the foreground! Reminds of 80's Miami Hurricanes running onto the field thru the smoke pre-game:)

Loved the bagpipes but couldn’t understand a word the guy said... with his STRONG “Scottish accent” and all.... 🤡  also... that bears a striking resemblance to @Kluv#0 !! They both have that unpredictable 0-60 in under a second personality as well! Were you guys separated at birth, Michael T???

Serious big boy pullups.  Everyone is 330 or above.  Some way above!  Poundstone was pretty dang strict.  Thor doing kipping pullups was kind of humorous, but the rest are pretty darn good.  Shaw knocking out 6 reps at 440 is just nuts to me.  I think @David_wigren had a point.  When you get super big, it's tough to get the range of motion to get high above the bar.  Anyway, all these are super impressive.  Except maybe Thor.  lol

Dude... highly suspect.  Not that there's anything wrong with that.  But he might sue you in the me too era.
