This sounds like the kind of thing I might be stupid enough to try.

Generally I'm ok with low rep stuff but die a bit with higher reps.

I'll give it a go this coming monday and report back

Then I just went as I could.

Sets of 3 are smooth. There isn't nearly the ramp up on the heart rate. PL54 on IGx noted this as well.

Grip was fine, I did chalk up though every so often. I didn't wear a belt.

The DOMS from this lasted about 5 days.

113? Holy crap What was that guys DL max?

I just felt like I was starting to get stiff during the 30 minutes and then I knew I'd been standing around too long. Maybe next time I'll give it a double or triple at the top of the minute. Trying to do one ever 30 seconds started to get not fun after the first 15 minutes. I felt like by the time I put the bar down, stood up and took a few breaths it wsa time to get back in place an pull again.

First time I did it, I just did it. Didn't really feel that hard and there wasn't much after effects.

What I like and glad my brother threw this into his article, this is a total STFU and do it kind of thing. So, now, we have lots of people giving it a shot.

Gonna watch the numbers. I hope I don't see too many x-fitters posting they did 200-300 reps and did muscle-ups while resting.

At first I thought this sounded like a horrible idea......then I became intrigued by it. Now I have to try it.

Curious, how close is 315 to your 1RM? Obviously I have to use a much, much lower weight

Amy,

For me 75-80%. For some doing this, 40-50%.

Over at IGX, we are using 185 for women.

Let's not Couch this up, shall we?

These challenges are good. The push press was a dandy. I just have to figure out where I'm going to fit this in the 531. Probably 1s week.
