First of all, Happy Thanksgiving!
I gotta haul ass and help get the kids ready since we're taking a 2 hr trip north to Pa. at my wife's Aunt & Uncle. Oughtta be some crazy times and I may even get to watch some Football!
My wife's Aunt makes a mean peanut butter - hershey kiss cookie, ever have them, they kill! ha ha
As mentioned about 6 weeks ago, I spread word about an Underground Pull Up Contest.
I've seen some vids from our friends here ranging from 32 all the way to 50.
Who got 50? Mike Guadango from Joe DeFranco's Gym - the kid is a beast and a hell of a Baseball player!
Mike Rojas, owner of Strong 101 Gym, part of the first ever certified USC Coaches, out in So Cal - the dude loves strength and has a killer set up, just opened a few months ago!
Below you'll see my vid and some thoughts on pull ups in general.
Pull Ups should be eaten for breakfast in my opinion.
Men under 200 lbs should be able to hit 20 reps minimum.
Why aren't there enough varisty athletes even able to hit 10 reps?
This pisses me off and there is too much time spent on the bench press and not enough squats, deadlifts, pull ups and the like.
Reply with a link to your Underground Pull Up Video and tell me your thoughts on the state of pull ups amongst others.
Have the best Thanksgiving ever!
I am grateful that you read my articles, watch my blog and believe in what I do.
Thanks from the bottom of my heart, I live for this stuff!
PS: Last year, on Thanksgiving, I had pneumonia! I was sitting on the couch wiped out with fever and chills. I am grateful for my health because without our health, we have Nothing!
