Milestone Met: The Kipping Pull-Up!

January 20th, 2010 · 2 Comments

As I’ve moved rapidly through the pull-up bands, I’m almost to the END of the band selection!  Our pull-up bands offer help based on weight.  I started on Blue back in November.  Graduated to Light green sometime in December (or early January) and now as of yesterday, I. can. now. do. a kipping pull-up!!  Whoo Hooo…It’s party time over here.  Yes, that’s right. Yours truly is now fully capable of a pull-up.

So, below is a great example of me doing it…except I have no idea how to flip the frame! Apologies, but too excited to wait another day to post this.
And, you can here my trainer in the background…dead lifts followed FRAN today!  It seems that every time we do a new workout- which is every single day – I almost have to relearn the skill.  Fran consists of only Thrusters and Pull-ups (21, 15, 9) but, the objective is to go FAST and HARD.  First time for me is almost like an experiment.  Next time, I will be more ready to kick some booty!

Or, for those of you, who’d like to see me right side up, I did it again in our garage tonight. Notice those gloves…My hands are completely trashed with callouses and blisters and I finally broke down and bought some Easton women’s batting gloves.

Glad to be able to share my milestones here!

    My name is Christopher Catalano and I’m casting a new TV show about families. I love your blog and was wondering if you can pass the word along. Maybe post it on your blog, and get the word out? I have attached the poster for the show and also check out the website: Please let me know if this is possible. Also, please feel free to contact me if you or anyone else you know would be interested in participating. Thank you.

    MAJOR CABLE NETWORK is searching for a large, extended and multi-generational family to be the stars of their own comedy reality show. We’re looking for funny families that REDEFINE THE TRADITIONAL and BREAK THE MOLD of your typical ……ho-hum American household.

    This show will document their lives and explore the family’s complexity while witnessing the craziness, chaos and love that makes their family special.

    • At your annual Thanksgiving dinner, do you look around and think your family should have a reality show because no one would believe it otherwise?

    • Do you find yourself having to explain your family dynamic to those unfamiliar with how things work in your non-traditional household?

    • Do your siblings, parents, in-laws or hired help bring a new element that pushes the envelope? Maybe someone is in a May/Dec relationship or has taken on responsibilities or roles that might deviate from the norm? Perhaps one of them is gay or was adopted from a far-flung exotic locale? Is there someone of a different race or ethnicity that’s mixing things up in your previously homogenous family?

    If your family puts the FUN in dysFUNctional, then this is the show for you!!!

    Tell us about you and your family. The good, the bad and the ugly.


    All Family Names, ages and occupations.
    A brief bio about your immediate and extended family.
    Include a family photo(s).
    Contact Phone numbers for the main contact in each family.

    *This is a feel good show where at the end of the day LOVE CONQUERS ALL.
    * All family members involved must live in close proximity to one another.
    *Characters welcome.

    [...] In January of 2010, I was doing crossfit five days a week (and that hasn’t changed)- although in January, I was not able to do a pull-up at all and now I can do 23 Kipping Pull-ups in a row! (link) [...]
