SEALgrinderPT Pull up Contest 2011
The rules are simple —

Film your max efforts of pullups.

Post up your video of you doing pullups (chin above bar) on the SEALgrinderPT facebook events page.

You will be judged by TEAM SGPT.

2 divisions – dead hang pullups  and kipping pullups  (regular or butterfly ).

highest number of accurate chin above bar pullups wins.

In the case of a tie – you will get 1 extra  pullup point if you call out “SEAL grinder PT” at the start of the video.  1 extra point if you add a visual link  1 extra point if you imbed a link – so 3 extra pullup points available to be used in a tie breaker.

All pullups must have chin over bar.  Leave no doubt.  Dont submit a video with chin almost over the bar.  Your peers will root your ss out and ridicule you unmercifully.  Dont even think about posting up a video with the bullsht arms bent at the bottom pullups.  Those are lame and you know well those aint the real thing.  A pullup is all the way up and aaaallll the way down.  No exceptions.  So knock those pullups out like your going for broke. Git r done!

Start practicing now as we will start the contest on January 1 and end on March 30 (90 days to do your thing).  This gives you time to train balls out and work towards your PR and get your video in.  SEALgrinderPT  will be posting up tips and advice during the whole contest to give you little golden nuggets to help boost your pullup PR.

Prizes to 1st, 2nd and 3rd of each division plus the notoriety of being the “Grinder Pullup King (or Queen) and braggin’ rights for the whole year.
