    Exclamation Worldwide Pull Up Challenge of 2011 Who's In?

    Primal Fuel
    Some other ladies and I got to chatting on my journal about how pull-ups have always been the hardest thing for us to accomplish, even when fairly physically fit otherwise. In fact, they can be so daunting that it's easy to give up on them before you even start.

    So, some of us have started the Worldwide Pull-up Challenge to knock down this barrier in 2011.

    To enter this challenge you must be

    1. Female or Male (Edited due to me being called a sexist for leaving the guys out)

    2. Totally incapable of doing even 1 un-assisted pull up at the present time

    3. Willing to really work at it to change this this year


    So far myself, Roberta and Ellie G have taken up the challenge. Who else wants to add their name to the list?

    We are sharing tips about ways of working up to doing a pull up etc.

    Together we will get those chins over those bars!

    YES! This is already my main fitness goal, to accomplish the elusive pull up!!! I even got a pull up bar for christmas.

    I cannot do a single pull up/chin up.

    I can't do them unassisted yet either, but you're a sexist.

    Aww. I'm sorry. It just seems like it's always so easy for most guys that it wouldn't be fair to the girls. But I suppose you're right. If you currently can not do any un-assisted pull up, not even one, there's no reason why we should leave the guys out of the fun.

    I was just teasing about the sexist thing.

    I've been doing leg assisted for a while. It seems like one sticking point that I can't get past. Funny thing is that I got closer when I weighed a lot more.

    Keep your challenge feminine, but we can keep each other posted about our progress anyway.

    The way I got past it was to press with the TOP of my feet, effectively limiting my assistance to leg extension (eliminated gluteal and quad assistance...the one leg...voila!
