Default Re: how many pull-ups can you do?

This asian dude is a phenomenal athlete.

Check out his exhibition. He does 32 pullups at the 3:30 mark. His form is somewhat questionable but it's enough to be impressive.

I also have strong shoulders and lats/back muscles which help immensely with pullups so 40+ isn't really out of the question

You should start a youtube channel.

That is 100% true. Some of my buddies are short with low body fat and I've seen them do way more than 30.

I'm at about 20-25 pull ups, chin ups probably 30+. I can do a few muscle ups as well, never tried to max out. Its pretty hard on my joints cause I got a larger frame.

I love hearing shit like this, stay with it. Also for anyone interested in training strictly body weight exercises, check out the book "Never Gymless" by Ross Enamait.

Or "You Are Your Own Gym" by Mark Lauren.

Your 6'0 tall at 155 (4 inches taller might i add) that is pretty small for someone who lifts weights if you do lift weights that.

I'm only 145 however i've been lifting for years now 45 isn't really of the question

Either most of you guys are extremely physically fit or the majority of you are bullshitting.

I can barely muster out 10 pull-ups on a good day. Chin-ups are a different story. I can probably do a little over 12.
I'm not 100% sure about how many I can do because I haven't actually tried maxing out with them. I'm doing a workout program (P90X) where pull-ups are an essential part of the program, but you only do enough to feel the burn, but not so many that you can't do more a few sets later.

Underhand - Probably about 15-20 depending on how I'm feeling that day
Overhand - Maybe 5-6. I suck at those

at exactly "5.7%" body fat. I'm sure you had that tested in a bod pod

This is Manny around 145 around 5% body fat



Let's see a pic of you, and a video of your 45 pull ups

If you're gonna lie at least make it believable

The funny thing about ISH...

There's fitness threads where everyone is in amazing shape

BUT

Nobody can take pictures to prove it because they "don't have a webcam/camera"

BUT

Anytime there's threads about phones and computers, everyone has the most expensive, advanced ones on the market
