    I came across this video and was impressed by her upper-body strength. Looks like she repped out at least 6 pull-ups, which is really great for a female being that the average female cannot complete a pull-up.

    Used to, before I added the weight of a dog on my body.

    Now, probably not.

    I aim for 3 sets till failure. .. minimum shoot is for 20. Train this till failure and it's my warm up. Agreed it's great for a woman. These days a lot of women are taking gear and growing clit dik

    I can do way more, probably because I have a bigger chest than her.

    It's good for the average female but considering that she's a high level athlete I thought she might be able to do more. I guess a skier doesn't need an exceptional amount of upper body strength. I'm just glad she was doing them strict and through an almost full ROM.

    And yeah I'm usually good for 10-12 reps.

    I can do 8-10 since cutting a load of weight over the last few months. Much harder for women though so not a great comparison

    She probably had rails on that bar. One up, then one up the nose. Classic Lindsey

    Back in my youth I used to be able to do 20+.

    Now, I'm betting on Vonn, sadly. lol

    The most I've done is 7 with a 25-pound dumbbell hanging off my feet. Strict form though.
