Title: GetBig Pullup Contest - Rules, deadline, and prizes listed
Post by: Stubborn on February 17, 2009, 09:57:02 PM
Inspired by the Konstantinov 55 pullup video, here is the GetBig Pullup Contest!  
Sponsored by (http://profile.ak.facebook.com/object3/1062/11/l62441365640_5794.jpg)

Rules are simple:
-One minute to do as many pullups as possible.
-Overhand and underhand grip only, no neutral grip.
-Chin must reach or clear bar.
-Camera must be in good position to judge quality of reps.
-You must hold onto the bar at all times.
-Wrist straps are NOT allowed. Wrist WRAPS are allowed if needed. (Please show us them clearly so we know you arent cheating)
-Present your name in the video. (on a piece of paper is fine)
-Must be a Getbigger with at least 100 posts!

Entry date is MARCH 29th 2009!

Prizes provided by AtLarge Nutrition will be awarded to the top three contestants! (products in the amount of)
1st = $100
2nd = $75
3rd = $50



One more note on form. If you have not seen the Konstantinov pullup video, he has "questionable form". We are accepting any comparable form (watch the vid). In the end this "technique" will not help you much, especially with grip, but knock yourself out.

So who is in? Better get practicing!

Do those really count? Yes, 55 is impressive, but there's a ton of momentum in those pulls. With enough kicking I think a lot of getbiggers could break 40. I could break 5 at least.

clarify the rules on the one minute thing.. are we allowed to rest at all or once you're elevated you can only rest while holding onto the bar at the bottom of the hang?  I can do a shitload in one minute if you let us get on the floor.. so make the minute rule like the deadlift contest where you can only rest as long as you haven't let go of the bar, etc.

Once you touch the bar the minute begins. Cant let go until you are finished, you must be hanging the entire time.

when i did my 60 it was in better form then those which are called dynamic chins. the record for dynamic chins is by an old farmer named john curd edmunds in 1978 he did 117 just like the guy in the video only he was 66 years old at the time . he still could do 32 in this manner well into his 70's. when i was a boyscout laugh out loud lol, i entered a chin contest at a jamboree over 2000 other bsa and i beat the next kid by over 20 chins . i did 45 chins at a whopping 100lbs bodyweight. as far as curd  google his name and chinup, there's lots of facts about chins.

did a few overhand pull ups today and there was a little discomfort but im in...question just for clarification can we switch grips from overhand to underhand during if we dont touch the ground, i know this is retarded but just to make sure.
Why no neutral grip?

Feel free to switch grips. No neutral because Konsti used overhand and neutral is much easier for most people.

how about this, no momentum, full dead hang with 1 sec pause, and chest must touch the bar

that is a real pull-up.

We are delaying the entry date by one week to help people get them in. Now the date is March 29th.


We're doing this just because everyone is very busy as of late. This is just for fun anyway.


So put what you have now and then take another stab at it the next week if you wish. Good luck!

Hell, none of these pull-ups would count as (1) Marine Corps pull-up.

No kipping, over hand grip, full extension lock out at the bottom & chin needs to be clearly over the bar.

Try doing a pull-up with a monitor counting the reps.  They will decide when the arms are at full extension & will tell you when to pull up.  They then will only count the rep once the chin clears.

i wouldn't count one rep on any of these video's.

Geo is close, but the hammer grip has to go.  Also, some of them there wasn't full extension.

kenny....this isnt the G and O board...overexaggerating isnt becoming especially if you are a marine....i agree that pullups should be strict but that was not the contest rules, and claiming that me or geo couldnt do 1 pullup is absurd...we all know that geo can squeeze out at least one good one and i can get maybe a half with some ammonia capsules and death metal music to pump me up

jus saying man there are much more diplomatic ways to approach discontents with the contest without being a jerk

well i guess we'll see....i wasn't cheating, i'm a man of my word and you can tell by my body swinging as i was hanging.  at this point i'm too tired to have a fun debate.  whatever happens, happens.  but more like "questionable" at worst--overall my rep quality was unbelievable!!

Ermmmm, OK well I'm a judge.  I have a problem with the fact that we can't see your legs in that video SM.  I'd give ya 6 or 7 if we could see what you were doing with your legs.  I might give you 10 if you draw me a nice picture.   But since no one else submitted a vid, I would say you get third place anyway for the effort.  ;D

Hedge and Vet are the other two judges if you want them to weigh in...

Due to the fact that I've tested positive for illegal substances (too much vanilla creamer in my coffee) prior to posting my vid,I feel that the only fair thing to do is to disqualify myself, and therefor I can not be considered entered in getbig.coms yearly pullup contest....

WELL, the contest deadline has passed so we cannot extend it.  Wicked, you will have to wait for the next contest.

Assuming I get confirmation from the other judges, Congrats to:

well actually.....

props to sexual mustard for posting a vid period, on account of it really seems like a daunting task for most people on this site to do so...

for the most part the only pics of people around here are faceless and shoving an arm at the camera,or taken 4 years ago when they actually were still lifting...

these contests will never work because there's too much fear by people unwilling to expose themselves...

You're telling me.

Sexual Mustard only got a couple reps at best but yes he does get props for posting a vid at least.

Enjoy the products and be sure to thank Chris Mason for helping us do these little things!

The next one better have a better turnout or it will be the end. We'll get to that later though.

I thought there'd be loads of people entering, so I didn't want to embarass myself!   Looking at the results, I'd have come a solid 4th!

I counted 4 or 5 legit reps for Sexy Mustard, very hard to say.

He could probably have done 20+ real chins if he would've pulled the whole way up.

But "coulda, woulda, shoulda".

He didn't.

Still gets tons of respect from me.

I agree with Ripster.

I shall graciously accept my 3rd place prize.   :D   And like 2001 Jay Cutler, I will declare my self the "uncrowned" Mr. Getbig Pull-Up champ 2009

 ;D

Thanks, it was fun!   ;)

I counted 21 with this video.   Form wasn't great but it kept within what Konstantinov did.

TheWall - First Attempt

The other video is better in my opinion simply because you can see Wall's feet.   Its too easy to cheat without being able to see the feet.

I counted 12 with this video.   Form was much more strict, which may resulted in a few less reps.

hahaha Wow!   :o  :D

Ermmmm, OK well I'm a judge.  I have a problem with the fact that we can't see your legs in that video SM.  I'd give ya 6 or 7 if we could see what you were doing with your legs.  I might give you 10 if you draw me a nice picture.   But since no one else submitted a vid, I would say you get third place anyway for the effort.  ;D

Hedge and Vet are the other two judges if you want them to weigh in...




I have the same problem with this video.  The camera angles don't help in any way.
