Chris Spealler got 100 consecutive pull-ups on his first attempt on video with Sevan Matossian and Carey Peterson. Or so he thought.
No one counted for Chris, and when they reviewed the tape, he had only done 99.
Ten days later, at the CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Summit, Chris tried again. His hands ripped so bad, the dripping blood became too slippery and he fell off the bar at 97 reps.
He tried again about two weeks later with his hands taped, but the tape got slippery, and he only got 93. Finally, about ten days after that, he flew through it and recorded 106 straight pull-ups.
This is not just the story of Chris’s quest for 100 pull-ups. It’s also the impact Chris has on his friends, family, peers, and the broader CrossFit community.
