I would love to try this. But my chins would be 1.. and due to a weird issue with my elbow I can't actually come back up from a dip... I may try it anyway though!

Travis,

I might have my son that is going to the SEALs do this test. I won't enter him,but would be cool to see his numbers on this.And your talking chin-ups,not pull-ups right?
He has to take another SEAL test tomorrow so maybe next week.

Good luck to those that do this.Is there a old guy catagory?

I'd do it, but I'd have to take more than a 15 second break after tearing my biceps off during the chin ups

For me it would be going into full extention with my arm all the way over my head that would send me back to the MRI machine.

Im out.


This is a cool idea!

It took me 15 seconds to recover from just reading that.

I think I'd tear a muscle too trying it!

Exactly... C'mon Travis, we're not built for this stuff bro!:tuttut:

If I wanted to do Crossfit WOD I would... ehhh, never mind. :evillaugh:

hahahaha!

Yeah I won't be doing this one lol. NO chance I'd come in even close.

This actually wasn't my idea for the competition, but it was one that we wanted to open up to more of the bodybuilding guys on the board. Otherwise all us powerlifters are going to take everything :evillaugh:

Can't always have that.

But yeah, endurance stuff sucks

If it weren't for the chin ups, I think most powerlifters would do well in this. Pushups are just an upside down BW bench, dips are just BW tri ext and our ROM on situps is short. LOL.

I think the idea is great. Thank God for the chin ups, otherwise I'd probably try it and I would suffer dearly for a while. I have a couple of meets coming up in the next two months. I often get stupid around that time. No need to tempt me.

Sorry I missed this question, here is a video of one guy who did it - rZQqFZ-NEGw

Also, they need to be in this order

I'm pretty sure Becky is going to try it next week, since she's competing this weekend. She also does crossfit, so I think she'll do pretty well.

I can't see the video is anyone else not able to either?

My bad, I posted it in a hurry and cut a little bit of the code short. Fixed it.

just completed this, much harder than i thought it would be when i finished i felt like puking and couldnt lift my arms. Originally i thought i was going to train shoulders after but i had to go home. Shortest gym trip ever. Also sorry for the bad camera angles i had to film and time it myself. Breakdown and totals at the end of the movie.
