204 chin ups in 30 minutes. im coming after you!
(full rom, no kipping etc)
ps im a twig
Very informative sir, good luck with your crusade
thanks bro i felt it was thread worthy.
oh yeah, i did 11 today.
felt like a beast
How did you split it up?
I only did 26 neutral grip pullups.
i started out aiming for 300; doing a set of 5 every 30 seconds. but after a while i needed more than 30 seconds rest. i'm going to try again in 2 weeks, we'll see how sore i am tomorrow.
thanks for the reply
do as many as you can, as often as you can. thats what i do and it seems to help
lol i only weigh 170 and can only do about 12 for my first set, then like 6 and 5 and less for anything after that
use a weight assisted machine and gradually lower the amount of assistance? or just do them more often.
190lb here i cant do much either
That's what I do. I use the assisted machine and it helps. it's how i'm able to do dips now.
i can do dips, just not much pull ups. i prefer being a bitch and using underhand grip to hit the biceps, which is easier
do kipping pull ups ... they help with normal pull up strength.
did 100 kipping pullups last night, it was exhausting
if i do this, will i be really sore?
im not sore today but i ate a ton and got about 10 hours of sleep. saturday is my rest day so i figured even if it makes me sore itll still be cool to try. i say you go for it
The first step is to make a separate thread about it.
This is like saying do quarter squats, because it will help you get a bigger squat.
not rly. But i still think kipping pullups are retarded.
Strongest deadlifter in the world just about..
no, it's not
kipping pull ups will develop many of the same muscles used in regular pull ups
be quiet ... if crossfit does it, it must be useless in any way towards getting stronger
Quarter Squats won't? You're to quick to judge.
Its the same thing. I see that you think I'm only hating on crossfit right now but If you can only do a kipping pull up rather than a regular pullup then do it. If you are doing kipping pull ups for cardio, then do it.
If you do a quarter squat you will still fire all the muscles of an ATG squat yet you are only getting 1/4 of the benefit. Using momentum in a pull up takes away the full benefit. Not to be cocky or prove anything but just from experience Ive never done a kipping pull up in my life and I did 34 straight about a month ago, my genetics are average at best. Now you see why I am against them for pullup progression.
