2FEB17: Max Pull-Ups #1

For today’s stack schedule with shortened periods (32 min ea), we will be completing our second fitness assessment of the semester: Max Effort Pull-Ups #1! This assessment will test the fitness component of upper-body strength.

While some of you already have the ability to complete one or more strict, bodyweight pull-ups, most of you do not (yet!)…so we will bring out the resistance bands to see just how close we are. Details for scoring are located below.


Determine how many strict pull-ups you can complete. If you do not have a strict pull-up, determine what the smallest resistance band is that will allow you to complete a strict pull-up (Red, then Black, then Purple, then Green)…and then score max effort (# of pull-ups) for that band.

Report # of strict pull-ups (or # of strict pull-ups using which color resistance band used).
Ex: 4P (4 Purple)
Ex: 3R (3 Red)
Ex: 1G (1 Green)
Ex: 3BW (3 Bodyweight)
