That is such a large discrepancy.

I find the complete opposite, I don't know why, since I know it shouldn't be like that. The easiest ones I find for me are parallel grip ones. So essentially what you'd do dips on; but obviously much closer together, something like shoulder level apart.

I can see how some people are reluctant to vid themselves though. Sometimes I have a friend record my doing squats, deadlift, etc. to check my form and I get looks like I'm a big douchebag trying to show off.

Where did you get the 5.7% reading, Mach 3?

You appear to be more around 8-10.

True.

I saw some guy at the gym today with an average physique doing like 5 with 45 lbs. attached and then doing a set of 12 without it afterwards.

I'm going to take a guess and say 90% of the people in this thread aren't doing dead hang pull ups.

My weight fluctuates between 145-148 depending on what im doing during the day but i've used a variety of measures, bmi tests, body fat scales, i've even jumped in a bod pod before they all came back around the same percentage give or take a percent.

I'm one of those OCD ass people who watch their diet pretty much all the time with everything i put into my body and obviously it'd be pretty hard to determine that from (admittedly) pretty bad quality cell phone pics

Hah, true enough. There's not really a good way to pull off public taping of solo athletic endeavors, unless your locale is completely empty.

I change it often depends on how I feel, some exercises I do are:

front pull downs with cable machine - 3 sets of 8
rear pull downs with cable machine - 3 sets of 8
cable machine rows - 3 sets of 8
rows with resistance band - 3 sets of 8
dumbbell rows - 3 sets of 8
lower Back extensions with exercise ball - 5 sets of 8
variety of pull ups - 5 sets of 8
shoulder shrugs - 3 sets of 10
bicep curls and hammer curls - 5 sets of 8

I usually end with some basic back and shoulder stretching for the extra flexibility
