My goal is to be able to do a pull up with my body weight added. Hopefully, at 190 i'll be able to do a pull up with 190 under me.

A weighted pull up with 190 lbs would be extremely good and closing in on world class.

I know, it's hard to fit everything in but I can't see me ever taking wide grip pullups out of my routine, they are so effective. With pullups and Bent Over Rows, I feel like my back is sorted.

Are chins, the close-grip, biceps-intensive version of pullups? I've started throwing a few sets of those in too instead of arm curls cos they feel so good.

Well, as strange as this sounds my back started getting out of proportion with the rest of me. My back packs on mass very easily and I wanted to shift some of the emphasis back on my arms and chest (which weighted chins surprisingly activate).

Good choice of exercises! Besides deadlifts, and rack pulls bent over rows and chins are all I do too. Definitely switch in chins for bicep curls. Builds bigger and more aesthetic arms in my opinion.

RE: How many Pullups can you do?
Every time I pass a jungle gym playground I push the little kids aside. Show them how to do pull-ups to get big and strong.

They try to go back to playing like children. I take that little kid and push him hard. I say hey! don’t you want to be a real man? And they do!

All of a sudden it’s a goddamn pull up contest. Little kids hanging like a troupe of monkeys trying to wiggle dat whittle chin above the mark. Uh you’re welcome earth.

That reminds me two girls watching me doing my pull ups routine.

"Wow, look at his muscles".
"He´s so strong".

RE: How many Pullups can you do?
I did 5 sets of 5 off a tree branch in my 15 minute break at work along with 10 clap push-ups and 15 normal push-ups.

I'll have to see what my max is off a real bar at the gym tomorrow.

I had a 50+ year old cat lady with smeared lipstick say some shit like that at a store today.

I like compliments so I gave a big smile said thank you and kept moving.

Now, I'd probably be lucky if I did 6? Or 8? Probably 6. But it's one of those things where if you just do them every morning, in a month or two you can quickly ramp back up to your usual max.

Unless you got fat. Then, I mean, you're still going to be fat.

When I was obese 2 (medically) early summer I could do 2. Now I'm not considered obese (still overweight, lost 60 pounds) and I banged out a bunch today but I'll have to do proper ones at the gym tomorrow to get a real number.

Down 60 lbs now? Wow! You are still losing weight. That's great, Man. You really took control of that situation and were not fucking around. You should be very proud.

Makes me feel nice to know that I was able to help. You're my biggest (but getting smaller every day) success story. Whip

RE: How many Pullups can you do?
If you've been watching the news, or read about this in the other thread, you may have seen the story of the guy who took off on a hang-glider without being attached!

Read about it here for some useful inspiration for getting those reps done;

https://www.rooshvforum.com/thread-71443...pid1894424

So as well as giving you a great back, bi's and forearms, and looking cool when you do them, pullups may indeed save your live someday.

This is a brief life, but in its brevity it offers us some splendid moments, some meaningful adventures.

30 deadhang. 40 when I was training them.

I'm 170 to 180 pounds.

Max with weights was 90 pounds attached by a belt for 5 sets of 10 cheating on the last few reps and on cycle.

RE: How many Pullups can you do?
I like to do them in reps of 5 for a few sets. I can do about 10 of them in a row from dead hang if I were to do them at the beginning of the workout, but I never do that I always just do them in sets.

RE: How many Pullups can you do?
12 but surprisingly only 5 chin ups. Usually it’s the other way around for most people.
