Pullup Challenge

So my score for the 3 minute pullup challange was 20. It was much harder than I thought it would be-those 3 minutes flew by!

I usually do around 15-20 pullups in a normal back workout, but the things is, I rest 1-2 minutes between sets. So it takes me much longer than 3 minutes to get to 20 reps. I usually do sets of 4-6, then rest for a minute or 2, and do about 3 or 4 sets.

For the challenge, I did 3 pullups at a time, with about a 20 second rest in between. Then I squeezed out 2 more pullups on the last set to get to 20. I did REAL pullups-palms facing out, no swing, full range of motion. The last few sets weren't perfect form, but close enough! It was tough, but fun to try something different!

  1. Girl, you are so far ahead of me! Way to go!! I seriously can't even do 1!! After I did P90X I had become pretty proficient at them but now it's like I've never done them or something. I so need to work on that!

  2. Yeah, I have to do them at least once a week. Once you don't do them for awhile, you lose it quick!
