Chin-Up Challenge! 12 Weeks. No Holds Barred. Join Me?

I’m writing a 21-day Bikini Body Transformation course at the moment. I think I may have mentioned it on a WI Facebook update last week? It’s for myself as much as you. Nothing like laying down a challenge for a few weeks and seeing what you can do when you pull out all the stops!

Anyway, it’s going to take me another week or so to finish it off, but the truth is that I’m simply ITCHING to start some sort of challenge NOW. And even though I’m already testing out my bikini body theories (I’m a week in!), there’s one thing that has been lurking over me as a goal for a good couple of years.

the chin-up challenge!

It’s to complete a full set of 12 chin-ups, and just this morning my go-to mentor on all things strength, fat loss and hormonal, Mr Charles Poliquin, published an article that kinda forced me to admit I’ve had this one on the back burner for too long.

Especially shameful considering I know it’s just a matter of focusing on it and employing some smart strategies to get me to that goal. True of any goal, of course 🙂

Anyway, I know I’m not alone in this particular goal. I’ve heard it mentioned many a time from Woman Incredible readers, and maybe, just maybe  (even if you’ve never dared admit it aloud), you yourself would quite like to smugly jump down from the bar after a similar achievement? You do know there’s nothing more empowering than a super-strong chick don’t you?

how to improve your chin-ups: the details

So. The challenge is simple. As Charles himself says, any female should be able to do 12 chin-ups in 12 weeks, with the right coaching and program. Not convinced? Well there’s really only one way to find out, isn’t there?!

Basically there are 3 methods you can choose from. They are outlined in the afore-mentioned article, towards the end. I’m starting with method 1, for 3 weeks, and then I might change to method 2. Will you join me? I hope so! Here’s what you need to do:

  • Read the post. The bit on machines for chins is very relevant, so if you’re just starting out it would be good to buddy up for a spot or just do eccentrics, i.e. jump up and control down. Bands are also great if your gym has them.
  • Choose your preferred (starting) method
  • Comment on this post with your commitment and which method you’re going to try.
  • It would also be good to note down where you’re at now of course, and share that in the comments once you have

Every few weeks I will check in with you, as well as let you know my progress!

full disclosure

At the moment I can perform 6 traditional pull-ups or semi-supinated (the grip I used in the video above), or 4-5 good chin-ups. That’s with about a 3010 tempo. I’m pretty excited to see where I’m at 12 weeks from now!

Are you in? I dare ya’!

I’m creating my new course, Big $ollar Energy, for the one who always knew she is here for millions,

to make it. To impact them. To create. And to LEAD.

Big $ollar Energy

The Money & Expansion Course for the Soul-Led Wanderer Who KNOWS It’s Time to Go All in on HER,

and Let the Damn Receiving Take Care of Itself. The Way it Was Always Meant to Be.

Which means?

Identifying and releasing everything that gets to go, from the way you’re thinking you need to do shit now, to the purposeless bits of the push or biz that it just don’t need to be about, to the hidden junk in your psyche that gets to go.

>>> It’s not about the do. The push. The win. When who you are when you only go within naturally PLACES you at the top,

but of the right fucking mountain.

The one that was always YOURS.

And then you finally WENT there.

Here’s the thing, for us, about allowing an expanse of RECEIVING.

IT HAPPENS WHEN WE GO TO THE PLACE WHERE IT JUST IS.
And always was.

Class starts LIVE on Monday May 24, however early access + Big $ Energy vibes will open from Monday May 17 in our Telegram chat + join now bonuses are open already!
