ie both facing forward (pullup) or both facing backward (chinup)?
Yes it doesn't matter. Practice forward then on the pft do them facing you
I'll probably just train "palms backward" so that I know what 20 feels like before testing.
Either direction. I started palms away and could do about 1 and a half. palms toward = cake
This may sound dumb, but you know to start at dead hang? In MEPS they didn't enforce an initial dead hang. Makes it 10 times harder.
Go to Wal Mart and get the bar to use on your doorway. Works wonders, especially if you get the leather strap to help/
You can switch as long as you don't come off the bar either.
how is it harder to not start from a dead hang? I find it the other way around...
another question: in what order does the test occur? (pullup/crunch/run)?
I have a pullup bar in my hallway. I randomly knock out 10 - 15 during the day.
We usually do crunches pullups then run.
I just read that the order is random, so
We did it pullup, crunch, and then run w/ 5 to 6 minutes rest in between.
when I jump on a bar I can do more pullups then starting from a dead hang... Maybe it's just me?
well I know the run is usually always last, and everytime I've ever done a pft even in boot that's how we did it. But what do I know...
Well, there is another guy in this thread saying he did it another way, so I guess you aren't the authority when it comes to PFT.
Pullups are my kryptonite.
The PFT has no order. Of course i'm a poolee, but that just means I have a fresh copy of my training guide.
I would prefer to run last so that my muscles are stretched out... Plus running is the easiest IMO
however you attach your two dickskinners on the bar doesn't matter
the order does not matter but you must be given a recovery time in between
You're tall aren't you?
authority, you asked for opinions from marines on pft's so I gave you mine. I'll remember to ignore your questions from now on
what the fuck, chin ups are like twice as easy to do
maybe it's just me and my massive biceps
you're pretty sensitive for being a Marine
But what do I know...
I'm 6'6", at my absolute best weight I'm about 230-240, if I can pull off even 5 pullups, it's fucking incredible.
muscle or fat?
So whats a good amount of pull ups?
I can do 10-11 right now properly easily but then again I'm short and don't weigh very much
