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
big/heavy.

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.
