My. First. Pull-up!

Monday, December 17, 2012

As mentioned in my post yesterday, my goal was to do 10 pull-ups with the pink band this week and an unassisted pull-up by the end of 2012. I was really worried I wasn't going to get my pull up but I nailed the 10 with pink and thought I'd try another unassisted pull-up. Didn't get it the first time but John was there to give me some tips on my kipping and then it happened. My first unassisted pull-up!

Set goals and work toward them! I've been working on pull-ups almost every day for two months, and made it happen. I'm going to try to WOD with pink next time we do pull-ups! And then the next big goal–an Rx WOD (no pull-ups!).


  1. Congratulations! It's a great feeling! I made a bet with my trainer when I started crossfit.. I do 10 unassisted pullups within 6 months and he would run a marathon (his idea, not mine). I met my part of the deal.. still waiting on his! It was an exciting day!

  2. Congratulations! I am in the midst of a similar journey (had a baby in January, starting lifting weights with a trainer 2-3x/week in April, have lost all the weight and gotten much stronger). It was so incredibly satisfying when I bench pressed 115lbs, did my first unassisted pull up, and broke other records at my gym (and went from 26% body fat to 19.8%). It's such an amazing feeling! I applaud you!!

  3. I'm such a proud mama!!!! Now you can never go back to the bands!!

    1. Thanks, G! I'm going to try to WOD with pink (depending on the WOD) but think I might be on red for a bit. SO happy!
