With a continuously running clock do one pull-up the first minute, two pull-ups the second minute, three pull-ups the third minute… continuing as long as you are able.

Use as many sets each minute as needed.

  1. Rx: 16 rounds + 11 pull-ups (total = 147 pull-ups)

    Up from 10 rounds + 4 pull-ups (total = 59) in August 2009

    Did first ten rounds unbroken then started breaking evenly in sets of two. May want to try breaking unevenly (eg. round of 12 as 9-3) next time.

    • You are Professor PR these days! PRofessor.

  2. Couldn’t resist trying this one again 😉

    17+11 PR

    Did unbroken through round 13, then started doing 9 at first and then breaking, the last two rounds (17 and 18) were done in sets of 2, 3, 4, and a few singles.

    I did this last November and got 12 + 12 so I feel pretty good about today.

    • Wow… you and Aaron both! Fantastic. I’ll make this up this week I hope. I love ladder workouts:)

  3. The rythm felt great today. I think I finally got the kip to where I shouldn’t have a problem breaking rythm too much anymore. Good fun!


    Mike…your hands were shredded. I can believe how you managed to keep going.
    You guys all did great today!!! Impressive!

    • You too, fun times!

    • Yeah, that’s about the worst rip I’ve ever had, Dallas. Enjoyed working out with you today, and really impressed that you could put up a score like that a week after first getting your kip — nice job!

  4. 12 + 9; good times.

  5. Falcons and Paleo cookies today….gotta try these, they were AWESOME and my own creation I might add! I only made four, but I would imagine you could adjust the recipe accordingly, anyhow:
    1 cup almond meal
    1 egg
    1-2ish tablespoons of honey or agave (microwave 1st for easier mixing)
    1 teaspoonish vanilla extract
    1 teaspoonish baking powder
    big handful of raisins.

    place on relatively greasy baking sheet, bake for 8-10 minutes on 350….BOOM goes the cookie in your mouth!

    • Yum…that sounds good!

  6. 16 rounds + 15 pull-ups (151 total pull-ups) PR
    Up from 14 rounds + 13 (118 total pull-ups) in August 09

    Wish I could have hung in there with Jack and Therese for one more round but I’m happy with my progress. It was fun to be there and see everyone on a Sunday for a change.

    • I wanna be like you when I grow up. 🙂

    • Great having you next to me, excellent motivation!

  7. need to start tracking progress again, today was fun, and I am wishing I knew how many i was doing the last time we did this… 17 rounds + 12 = 165

    • Great working with you!!!

      • was good to know that you were suffering there in the end too, nice work on round 17. i am seriously going to do a reverse ladder next time… lets say we start at 20 and go backwards?

        • Reverse actually sounds pretty cool!! But we might need to add an extra 30sec to the intervals. 😉

          Sorry I didn’t introduce myself today, but you kicked some serious butt!!

  8. Tucker and I did a wicked little 15-minute AMRAP today of Damon’s devising: 250 meter runs, dumbbell thrusters, and abmat situps. Tucker got 4 rounds and a run, I got 3 rounds, a run and 6 thrusters. It was fun. Kudos to those who climbed the pullup ladder.
