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

I'm planning on joining the military and I've been hitting the bodyweight stuff seriously hard for the last 4 or 5 months.

I can currently hit at least 25 legit dead hang pullups with fast tempo (no pauses, no hanging around resting). I plateau'd around 15 for a while, then I went to ***** sporting goods and bought a dip belt. Start doing weighted pull ups and your numbers will skyrocket. I can now get 8 with 70 lbs hanging from my waist.

Also started doing muscle ups, my best is 6. I want to get better at these.

edit: **** is Di-ck's sporting goods, the store

Are you looking to pack on mass? How tall are you, and what is your goal weight?

I'm aiming for a lean, relatively "normal" looking physique. That's why I'll probably never go for weighted pullups. Don't want my biceps and back exploding too much.

I've ranged from 215lbs to about 235lbs the last 2 years, just depending on what time of the year it is and if I'm playing certain sports. Last 4 or 5 months I've been sitting on 215lbs, and don't think I'm going to be changing that any time soon. I'm 6'3, or there about. Maybe 6'4.

I've been training pretty seriously the last 4 years. I'm happy with mass/size and most of the time bodyfat. Just looking to get stronger now. Though its hard trying to do that and maintain the same weight. So I'm doing mini bulks and cuts here and there. If I put on too much weight, I'll become obsessed with staying bigger, and I tend to get more back injuries then. At 215lbs I've found its great for me. Never injured, and decent enough for basketball.

Wider pull ups are harder too.

Usually do three sets, with first set I could do 10 wide grip then 8, 7 on the last two.

Narrow ones are easier of course. And form is important, I see guys do like baby pullups in the gym all the time.

Not really, but thanks. Right now I'm doing BodyRock.TV and so far I like the results I'm seeing in the short time I've done it. (2 weeks?) I'm going to stick with this for 2 months and see what happens.

I'm like so close right now. When I contract my abs I can feel the definition in them, I just have a small layer of fat I have to get rid of still. LOL

Yeah, I like doing those a lot.

One thing that I like to do as an ab exercise is to:

1) Get to the point in the pull-up to where your elbows are at 90 degrees.
2) Hold this position firm, making sure your upper body does not move AT ALL.
3) With a controlled motion, bring your legs up and around, together, in a circular motion. I usually swing from down to left to up to right to down and then reverse it the other way.
4) 3-5 sets of 10 reps. Will get your abs shredded and strong as ****.

Can you get the same results from a Power Tower? Resting your arms on those pads:



Or, does the 90 degree pullup position add even more stress on the abs? I would imagine it might.

True. Sometimes my form falls apart toward the end of my sets, and I'll end up doing like 75% of a pull-up (can't get my chest to the bar).

But, it's all about building yourself up to that point.

17 pull ups with a 45 lb vest

24 chin ups with a 45 lb vest

Haven't done any without a vest in 2 years. I highly recommend getting one and adding at least 1-2 lbs per week. Keep the reps consistent, you hardly notice the extra resistance from week to week. You will make huge gains. I do all my bodyweight exercises with it. Dips, hanging pikes, pushups, pistol squats, etc.

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

Does dead arm mean letting your body come entirely down so your arms are straight? If so, I do not have a number on that. If normal pull-ups require arms coming down to a 90 degree angle, I can 20 in that fashion.
