[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]You should be able to do one chin-up with a weight equal to what you bench press for one rep. The chin-up weight is calculated by adding external load on the dip belt to your bodyweight. Use a supinated grip to spare the shoulders and start from the bottom. It's my sincere belief that those who can do this rarely have shoulder issues. Most people are out of balance and have rotator cuff issues to prove it.[/FONT]
Can you do this?

If yes, do you have shoulder issues?

So somehow attach ~180lbs to myself and do a pull up?

He's not doing a chin-up but you can use the same belt for it.

I need to do it with 3 plates. Guess I'll try them at the end of this week or next.

Your head.
I can get like 3-5 chins w/75lbs attached dependant upon how fatigued I am.

my bench is (and always has been) horribly weak for my size :mamoru:
