Oh fer god's sake. Who out there can do 20 one-arm pullups with mild kipping? He stopped before he was fully fatigued as well; clearly could have done more.

Lillian kipped too.

Report back with your criticisms when y'all can do 10 one-arm pullups with kips.

Sheesh.

I agree with Mr. Gold on this one. This is an impressive feat that is not subject to critique unless you can better the performance.
Jealousy and arm chair critics just aren't appropriate to RGold's posting of this video IMHO.

Wow John, who pissed in your cheerios this morning?

Who said anything about relevance to climbing performance?

And wtf does Easy O have to do with one-arm pullups?

Times are bad, I know. No need to take it out on a fun-loving bit of trivia guys. Get a grip.

John, I have no idea what I've done to offend you, but I hope you'll permit me to issue a blanket apology. The holiday season is nearly upon us, and I wish you all the best in what remains of this year and the year to come.

Same John Okner? Nice pictures, some of the Gunks and I've done that one climb; 3rd pitch, if I'm not mistaken.

Well, there is strength, and then there is strength and balance.

I didn't know a one-handed Stalder press was even possible (1:20):

When I was 24 I could do two with my right arm, one with my left. Went for two on my left and my shoulder hurt for six months. Ended that.

How did a light-hearted post about a pretty amazing physical feat (by a climber) devolve into this?

Tami, my retort was meant to be sardonic. The folks who were "criticizing his technique" were not acting in anything like a coaching capacity. They were just practicing the fine art of internet deprecation. "Yeah, he's doing an amazing number of one-arm pullups, but they're no big deal because he' kipping." So my response, I thought in the same vein, is "Ok sparky, let's see you do even half that number and then we'll think about how big a deal it is."

And now I'm "disingenuous" (maybe you should look that up, I don't think it means what you intend) and, by implication, am somehow denigrating the foundations of the coaching profession?

Seriously? It's video of a guy doing one-arms. I'll take your expert word on the liklihood of shoulder injury. Can't we all just get along?

Speaking as someone who actually could do a lot of one-arms, I can add a couple of things to this discussion.

First, while the ability to do a one-arm pullup, or many one-arm pullups, will not magically improve your climbing by three number grades, it certainly won't hurt. Technique is king, but being strong sure helps.

Second, be careful. I screwed up a shoulder and had to take most of a year off from climbing. I've always felt the problem was my tendency to just jump into it with no warm up, but I'm sure Tami's right about technique being important. I don't know what "engage your shoulder more purposefully" means, but I do know what kind of damage can await.

And third, what Rich said in the post above. This should just be a fun conversation about a climber doing one-arms.

How about that old MoS video with Fred Nicole cranking them off his pinky on webbing with his hand clenched in a fist? Awesome.

I watched your linked video right before going to work this morning.

I went "WOW".

I could do four in a row at one time when I was younger.

But that guy was crankin em out like it was nothing.

Take care Rich and keep on crankin ......

You think a pain in the a_sss is something to deal with wait till your shoulder starts a hurting just like Tami says.

I got involved in weightlifting back in time. Bench pressing was popular. I worked my way up to almost 2 times body weight (not bragging mind you, Michele's dad was greater than 2X).

Guess what? My shoulders starting hurting even when not doing anything.

I dropped that faster than Tim Leary dropped large doses of acid.
