Pull-Up Repetitions


The goal is to perform the maximum number of pull-up repetitions in one set.

The Rules in a Nutshell
▸ The competitor may use whatever grip he/she likes (underhand/supinated, overhand/pronated, mixed)
▸ The Chief Referee gives the verbal command ‘Pull’ only once, to signal the start of the competitive attempt. After that the competitor will be in charge of adopting the acceptable Down Position (with visibly fully extended and locked elbow joints) between repetition attempts
▸ The tip of the chin must completely pass the pull-up bar, both horizontally and vertically in the up position (when viewed from the side of the rack)
▸ The legs must be kept crossed at the ankles during the upward movement and in the up position
Kicking/kipping is allowed
▸ The competitive attempt ends when the competitor releases one or both hands from the Pull-Up Bar
▸ Each competitor has one attempt
▸ The result is the number of ‘Good Pulls’ (= total repetition attempts minus ‘No Pulls’)
▸ The winner is the competitor with the most ‘Good Pulls’
