      Anyone do/tried them?

      I had a bash at them the other day at the gym (cos it was quiet) and managed 2.


      There's video's on youtube of people doing them, I'd put a link on but I'm at work.

      Really hard. Part of the marines fitness exam I believe. I can barely do one. Time for a bit of a cut I think.

      Is this where you do a pull up and go over the bar until you can push through your tris and finish above the bar ?

      Tried it once and realised I am not as athletic as I used to be, I guess all this heavy weight training has made me strong but in a non functional sort of way.

      Keep doing these and you'll end up spinning round the bar like a chinese gymnast.

      Ever seen street strength where they do all those holds and stuff in playgrounds and fences etc

      That is some impressive stuff, even have a championship for it.

      The black guys on YouTube? That's nuts. Incredible strength. Especially grip.

      Tough exercise, but imo probably as good as squats or deadlifts as an all round muscle builder.

      Worth practising in the gym if you don't mind being humbled by an exercise and looking weak

      No, just regular pull ups for Marines as far as I'm aware.
