Landmark numbers

How many Pullups can you do?
What is a really challenging number for you to strive for?
Your first?
How about 40?

It's good to put numbers in your head...to think about some worthwhile milestone. When you reach it you'll smile and bask for a moment in your accomplishment...

Later that night, you'll start planning for your next goal, your next number...

It's the nature of the beast.

It's time to make a certain Team members personal goal a public one.
Mike celebrates a birthday at the end of the year, (December 29th), I won't say how old he'll be but I will share his goal; 43 pullups.

How's that number make you feel?

Anyone want to join "The Silent Storm" in his quest for 43?

OK, how about this...What number is a challenge for you?

Post it up in the comments...how many chins would you like by years end?

Don't cut yourself short or you won't get excited about it...make it something tough, something that might give you "butterflies"...something you'll have to reach deep for.

My goal by years end is to get in at least one pull-up without any assistance bands. Currently, I can get 5 in a row on the pink band. I started off 3 months ago on the thick blue band? Doable? I think so!

Your Kip is VERY powerful...congrats on the progress

1st goal: get to the thin band ASAP!

The full chin will follow...
