Anyone seen Pete Whittaker beating all those Storror lads at hanging from a bar over a river

He's a bit of an animal isn't he, something like 25 mins hanging.

I was thinking the same. I replayed it a few times, and still have no idea how he did that. Not sure that is what the setters had in mind. Hamish was a bit more orthodox.

Just came here to post the same thing. Had me shouting at the TV. Worth watching the replay if you haven't seen it.

The soundtrack has me well psyched though

I don't know, feels surprising if it was though as it's not that crazy in the scheme of things. Someone like Puccio might stand a chance? Or Molly TS?

I'm guessing she's more interested in, y'know, winning ALL the medals than an arbitrary training challenge on a non-standardised piece of equipment.

Still pretty cool if she is, and also like, I know I'd be chuffed with it.

Those medals and competitions require you to be a really good climber but we all know that 1-5-9 is the benchmark for strength.   :strongbench:
Since I'm someone who loves to look at this topic I know which one I'm interested in.

She cared enough to take time and post it?  :P

End the thread here. It won’t get better than this.

Mikael Mawem did 20 consecutive one-arm pullups during the pullup-event in the "no-foot contest" in Alsac.

https://nofootcontest.com/records.php

For those who wants to check his form, a few of the pullups are at ~ 4:20 here

Twenty consecutive one-arm pullups is pretty much world class. It is hard to track down better scores even from athletes specialising in body-weight strength events.

Impressive: for sure
Strength: ?
As has been noted before in this thread (in different words) more than five reps strays toward endurance

;)

Based on Mika doing them as an event in  the middle of a comp, I'd bet he could do a few more in training.

I don't know what the record is doing them in front of a wall close to the bar that hinders kicking and throwing with the free arm. Anecdotally people can get well into the tens, but I have never seen this. (But I don't doubt Magnus or Sami on this.)

All my knee ligaments just exploded watching that. I guess he's training for those crucial rockovers on smeary paddy slabs.
