  • One-fingered pull-ups

    "They say that only one of 100,000 able to take pullups with one hand. I can take six pull-ups with one finger, grins sport climbs Magnus Midtbř."

    Original article (with video): Her tar Magnus (23) seks pull-ups med én finger - Sport - NRK
    Google translation (no video): Google Translate

    He does some other impressive stuff as well.

      Darn. Maybe the video only works in Norway. State-sponsored television and all... Shame you can't see it, because it looked pretty cool.

      Has anyone ever seen any other videos of this? *checking YouTube*

      Update: There is a YouTube version (in Norwegian), see below.

      It's a shame the video isn't subtitled, because he explains a lot of interesting things about how he trains and different techniques for training this kind of strength.

          That is extremely impressive. It's amazing how effortless his movements seem.

          If that's what Scandinavians are doing during their 9 months of winter, then we should all be pretty scared.
          Visit my blog Primal Homeskillet. And eat it too.

              Good save, iniquity - This guy is on a whole other level! I wonder how many "normal" one arm pull-ups he can do.

              Edit: Just read the google translation. Apparently it's ten.

                That one arm negative holding the DB on what seemed like a "ball" was really impressive too. Suddenly my weighted negatives seem puny in comparison

                    Damn! The explosiveness when he's 'jumping' from the low wooden pinch grip rail to the high one missing out 3 or 4 in between is amazing!
                    Awesome, just awesome

                          I'm guessing this guy would pretty much dominate Ninja Warrior.

                              I'm guessing he can probably open any jar/beer bottle bare handed.
