Is it possible to do 100 consecutive chinups?
And how would one go about achieving this?

You got a long way to go for the record if you're only looking at 100 buddy.
The world records are done by times (1 minute, 30 minutes, 1 hour etc)...because truthfully, you could probably hang there for days and still be considered "consecutive".
Currently the world record for chinups in 1 minute is Jason Petzold with 67. If you want to use your legs to assist you, then it's a different category.
The record for most chin-ups in one hour is by Stephen Hyland with 993 (yes, NINE-HUNDRED AND NINETY THREE! :O)
Keep in mind, the difference between a chin-up and pull-up is your palms. Facing you is a chin-up, away is a pull-up.
Although I can't find a record for consecutive (getting off the bar), I'm assuming that Stephen Hyland's (again) is consecutive where he knocked out 4,020 in 7 hours and 50 minutes....the record for 24 hours however (set in just under 23 hours is Jan Kareš with 4,620) ...yea, I crapped myself when I read that as well...that's averaging about 200 per hour for a whole freakin' day.

My father could do 54 full pull ups when he lived in the USSR. It would probably take like 3 years to reach 100 chin ups. I started by doing pull ups everyday and I improved a lot. When I started, I could only do 7. After a week and a half, I am 18. So just don't give up! It will take a while though. Good luck! :)Source(s): Personal experience.

I would love to see that i'm 17 and my record is 35 in a row, but I don't see how someones arms could do that all at once
