    My demon, which I'd love to slay in 2013, is the elusive front planch. Been trying for a solid 3 years -- no luck so far.

    I'd also like to beat my PR in our local 15K (the Utica Boilermaker), and qualify for the Boston Marathon (gonna run a qualifier in late summer I think, Montreal most likely).

    And of course there are several things I hope to climb.

    Deadlift 400 lbs!

    For those attempting their first pull-up...try training with unassisted negatives.

    Good luck.

    unassisted negatives are a really good method, but you need to be able to control the drop not just fall, defo part of the progress but not everyone starting will be able to straight into negatives. Flex hangs for about 2 seconds were all I could manage this time last year. Power holds are also good and negatives with a band would also work as part of the progression.

    There was a really good guest post a few months back about the benifits of negative reps in training I'll try to find it and linky when I've slept (its late here)

    Word.

    Not trying to derail thread - lots of people want to do chins/one arm chins. I strongly believe doing assisted chins and or pull-downs simply can't train the nerves, coordination, and stabilizers as effectively as unassisted negatives. Such exercises will certainly help though!

    To squat twice my bodyweight.

    Currently at 53kg (53.5 and rising ) and hoping to be at about 60 by the end of the year... So between 110-120kg squat.

    I denfinatly agree with you on the pull downs, I'm becoming more and more of the opionion that weight machines which isolate muscles do more harm than good, however I think band assisted pull ups are really positive, especially if you are training while still losing weight as all they really do is lighten you, so if you are carring 20lbs of extra fat for example, a band will help take that 20lbs off while still training all the muscles and nerves and joints as you are still hanging and free to swing and wobble, once you've lost some weight you can move to bands that help less of drop them all together.

    And don't worry about derailing the thread, on topic discussion keeps the thread going and is usefull for everyone reading.
