I know I’m always a little late to the party and just found out about this guy David Goggins – ex Navy Seal and Army Ranger etc. I was listening to him on a podcast and then heard a few things that blew me away and now I’m a big fan. One is that he did 4030 pullups in 17 hours – that is one of the things that made my jaw drop – never thought anyone could do this. It, like the Iron Cowboy who did 50 ironmans in 50 days, makes me want to think bigger.
Watch the video below….. This guy Jesse Itzler had Goggins live/train him for one month and it is about the things he had him do. The motto is basically you have to do things that suck every day. One of things that made an impression is that there are long races with several folks on a team doing relays over very long distances and Jesse met him because he saw Goggins doing it alone 🙂 Message is real – we hold ourselves back mentally. I remember when I thought 150 wallballs was a crazy amount and now I do it all the time.
So I’ve organized our company to see how long it will take all of us to do 4000 pullups. A guy is bringing a pullup bar tomorrow. My preference was to have one in the main doorway to cubeland and you’d have to do one to enter but I think we’ll put it on a conference door adjacent. Strict form only, hands under or over but no kipping allowed. Whiteboard to track folks….
I did 80 last night with blue band and 80 pushups last night as I have to get back to doing regular pullups! This will also selfishly help me get to that goal if I can train during work also 🙂
Also, got Kenny motivated last night – he is working on getting jacked and back in shape also. Look at this back!
Ride on (you Zwifters know what I’m talking about!)
