the incredible bulk

My younger brother's an avid rock climber and usually walks around at 5' 9" and a
pretty muscular 165 lbs. From all the climbing he's down to 155 lbs, and still
managed a MAX pull up with his BW + 80 lbs attached. And he can do 2 finger 1
arm pull-ups - pretty crazy.

What's even crazier though is supposedly that's not even very good yet for
climbers... a really good climber can do pull-ups with his freakin bodyweight
attached in extra weight! That's crazy strong, even if these guys aren't very

Man, some of the pulls on that video were nuts. Small guys but big ass weights.
I wouldn't doubt if some of them were doing this CrossFit training for climbing,
it's fairly popular in that circle.
