GetBig Pullup Contest - Rules, deadline, and prizes listed
« on: February 17, 2009, 09:57:02 PM »
Inspired by the Konstantinov 55 pullup video, here is the GetBig Pullup Contest!
Sponsored by

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.

Why not do a squatting or overhead contest instead of a chin up contest?

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.

Oh and I just want to remind everyone who is entering that these videos will be judged by multiple selected members. This means you need to show good ROM and observe the rules or you will be disqualified.

I think most people dont have the grip to do what Konsti can. You're more than happy to prove me wrong though, arent you? :)
