Pull Ups

What will $29.95 buy you these days..... tons of fun and a nice family challenge of pull ups.  Only ones that count begin from a dead hang.  I can only do one but since I love a good challenge I am hoping that number will increase fast enough to make these boys cry...lol!!

Greg ... show off... he started at 5.

Kenny (aka our Marine) way more than 10... but who was counting :)

Scott also made it look easy... thinking he had me on several... again who's counting?

Here is my one.. but look at the perfect form :)

And who could leave our Layla out?... for the record she did ZERO but she is just so pretty :)

So the money was well worth it and I imagine that we will be beast by summer... well the boys will at least.

One one last note:  Scott FINALLY shaved off his "man beard" tonight.  Since I have refused to kiss him he became so weak that he had to do it.  Well that is the story I am sticking to anyway.


On the training front:
Plenty of riding and running this week.  Pleased with my December totals and ready for 2009.

Happy New Year to all!!

I have looked at those things but figure I could stand to lose a few pounds before I use one.

I am officially in for B2B full 2009

Oh gosh... pull-ups. Not fun, but can be - I guess. Looks like you guys enjoyed it!

Melanie said...

Cute pics! Looks like a ton of fun, but i suck at pull ups... Happy new year to you and yours :)

Nick said...

I totally suck at pull ups including Kipping Pullups (which are more intense).

I also suck at trying to keep my face clean shaved.
What's with you women?
You could have taken the beard off with Duck Tape right?

I actually shaved my foot so the Duck Tape doesn't hurt.

How fun. The picture of Lalya is too cute. Have a wonder New Years.

Shannon said...

I love the doggy pull-ups. I'm up to 5 and that isn't braggy just letting you know that you will get there. I want to see those guns when your getting placed at B2B!

Chris said...

I don;t want to be ANYWHERE near on eof those things! Although I will say that I have always been in awe of the guys at the SC that can hang and pull 20+ times.

Very cool! You guys are having WAY too much fun with a pull-up bar :-)

Good luck with those pull-ups!!

Happy New Year!!!

Wes said...

I need to get me one of those. They use them in P90X, but I've been using the total gym. I figure 25 pull ups with 50% body weight is better than 5 with full body weight. LOL... Like I could do five. But still, I need to graduate to the real thing!

Happy New Year!!

Stephanie said...

Being able to one is really impressive. I can't do mine yet:-(

The Happy Runner said...

Truly excellent form! Nice work -- you'll be putting the boys to shame in no time, I'm sure ;-)

Happy new year!

Marcy said...

ROFLMAO Robin!!! Ooohhhh the poor cat! HAHAA

Dang you're going to be one ripped machine before you know it ;-)

jen said...

LOL at the beard pics. My husband is in a current scruff phase and I do not prefer it.

Is that the Iron Gym thing I've seen on the infomercial? I thought about getting one. And some Shamwows. I need to watch less TV.

Runner Mom said...

Layla gets my vote for the prettiest pull ups!! That was precious! Thanks for you and Scott running with me this morning!
Love ya,
Susan

Happy New Year!

J~Mom said...

That is so cool!!! Where do you order one from?

Judi said...

happy new year! i can't even do one pull up so you're up one on me. good job! where did you get that thing?

Stuart said...

I must have seen that thing on TV a 1000 times and thought nah but now...

kelly said...

We just got one of those for Christmas too! I love it! Keep practicing, you will see results really quickly. Happy New Year!

Phil said...

One pull up ain't bad. My brother has the same contraption and one was all I could muster when I visited him over Christmas.

You'll no doubt be doing 20 at a time by the end of the year.

Haha, we have one of those in a doorway that seldom gets used except for stretching (hanging). In 2009 I hope to change that :-)
