how many pull-ups can you do?
 
What is your max number of reps in one set of arguably the most important upper body exercise?

I can only crank out 9. I only recently got serious about trying to build my pull-up strength.

underhand or overhand? I could do 11 underhand.

Overhand.

Underhand is called a "chin-up" and is slightly easier.

i've started doing L-seat pull ups now to give myself variety and more of a challenge.

Do door pull-ups, they're slightly harder because your of the friction between your legs and the door, and you can't swing at all. I can do about 7 at the moment.
