I'm thinking of another week or two at L1 doing GTG for pullups. I really want to get the "strength before strength endurance."

Try using a weighted belt or vest, that is a good way to get your numbers up.

I think I'm actually going to incorporate the vest into my workouts. I want to get much stronger and do what we are doing now.
I really want to be able to complete "the girls" by next year if possible.

New to the game. Just started this week at level one. I was reading the posts and found GTG and don't know what the acronym means. Any help would be appreciated.

Kevin, how about a sticky up top with short explanations of commonly used abbreviations?
Repost from fizzle's log:
GTG = Grease the Groove. Google it. There are a lot of references to it on the crossfit website as well.
I am doing GTG on pullups. Every day about every hour or so I do 2 pullups - as long as it's convenient. Can't really get away with it at work - yet
I will eventually increase this number as my max reps on pullups - about 5 or 6 - goes up.
Do frequent small workouts. I actually did this intuitively with pushups about a year ago - every time I went downstairs in our house - I did 10 pushups.
For more in depth info on GTG google "neuro synaptic synaptic facilitation" I think that is the meet behaind Pavel's GTG.
Here is a good article

I'm on my 4th day for GTG (Pavel's Hit the Deck program) for pushups / situps and yesterday was a lot of work! 60% every 45min really exhausted me, especially since I am able to do them at work, which is a 12hour shift, and I didn't sleep well which was MORE time for pushups... so I am very much looking forward to today.
No real idea if it works, guess we shall see in another week and a half
