I have a question. As of right now, I'm only able to do about 7 pull-ups so I'm asking if its possible I'll be able to do 20 in 10 months? Does anyone have some workout tips? Thanks.

Look up Recon Ron pull up program, or (my personal favorite) pyramid pull ups.

Personally the only way I seemed to get better at pull-ups was to just do more pull-ups. I've been recently doing them more with palms out so my numbers have been going up on the IST luckily.

You are correct the only way to be able to do more pull ups is to, well do more pull ups. But in order to achieve maximum results you must learn to decrease rest time between sets of pull ups (thus pyramids come to play) they really helped me when I was competing for the Marine Corps scholarship I went from 14 to 20 in about a month.

Lol yeah my pull up bar is a 2x4 screwed over my porch steps and the top is sanded down so it's rounded out.

First pain, cadence! They better also be correct and they better be able to hear you or they add a mile. We usually start off with the IST route and work out way around the local neighborhood, which on a good day is about 3 miles.
Second pain, every time the last person is in the back again we stop and do crunches, monkey ****ers and push ups. If you even look like your going to stop then they double the amount. After, we take off in a 40 yard sprint to the airport welcome sign.
Third pain, the airport is about 6-8 miles (perimeter). We start off in formation until we hit a significant point where we stop and do various workouts. If you do not sound off, if you stop, if you complain, if you don't do everything with intensity and speed then we turn around and run all the way back to the previous stop point and turn around and run to the one where you got in trouble at. So far that's about 3 miles and you haven't even gotten to the second stop point.
Fourth pain, after all that we still have to perform pull ups and flex arm hang. You have to max out, no if and or butts about it.
Oh but wait did i mention every run you do is an Indian run?

I like the comment about running with no shirt on and it still being hard. LOL ! this poolee is happy to see that others agree that more clothes makes it HOT. The boys I run with always crack jokes because my I sweat so much and look like Im dying. i reply to them " have you ever ran in a sports bra...its sooooooo much hotter lol" I just really liked that comment. Cant wait to tell the boys !

My run time has been getting worse due to me having shin splints, they better go away soon i leave on the 29th. I am still running but not enough to improve right now, i just hope they dont get worse in RT.
