Winners of the Dead-Hang Pull-up Competition

The first Fitstream competition has now ended and we'd like to thank everyone who took part and those that helped to promote it.

The competition challenged participants to videoing the most dead-hang pull-ups, which ran for six weeks and took entries via YouTube. There were three classes available for men's, women's and 18's and under.

Well done to all the winners - there were some super-human efforts and participants showed great spirit and camaraderie. It was inspiring stuff...
