Considering that I am Pullupjay I should do a gazillion, but I can only do about 10-12 full ones going all the way down and up

Probably 12-15. Haven't repped out to test in a while. Ive been doing them for low reps with weight. Much better than a year ago when I could barely do 4 straight without tearing up.

20-30 or somewhere in between

I only weigh 145 lbs though so that's an advantage.

I probably couldn't.

I won't even attempt one until one pull-up feels like nothing.

Have you seen the vid of Kali Muscle doing 20 of them? Redic. Especially for his size.

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

I just tried and these are the numbers I got, I cooled down 3 minutes between each one. Saw the thread, thought I would try it after I worked out...

Pull-Ups: 13
Chin-Ups: 19
Push-Ups: 34

...5+ months ago I bet I couldn't do half those numbers.

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

Had this JROTC contest back in high school where we'd have to do all types of endurance events. One event was a pull-up contest. I got to 16 pull-ups. This was 10 minutes after a swimming relay so I was kinda tired. Before the training, I was only able to do 7 pull-ups.

That's insane. The degree of difficulty on most of those things is unreal, mad props to your little bro.
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.

Depends on which way you gauge it important. I've always found pulling up the most weight for one rep more impressive in an exercise like this. The heavier you are, the longer your limbs are, the harder it is for you to pull up.

I've stopped doing sets to fail with pull ups and instead strap on about 35lbs on a belt, and try to get 4-6 out. Haven't tested my bodyweight max in a while.
