    100 pullups?

    Hey just a quick question to see what everyone opinion on this is.

    Im doing my back day today and I really am working on my middle back more than my lats lately. Generally what I've been doing is picking a number like 60 and getting 60 pullups in as few sets as possible, some have added weight at the start and I taper down so I can always do at least 5. Just the simple question is... who thinks that doing 100 will be too excessive towards my goals or will it benefit me more?

    You could try it, cant imagine it doing any harm as such.

    Now I can do sets of 10, iv'e started to hold a dumbbell between my feet, that way I can still keep progressing in strength and size. Regular pull ups feel easy when you've done weighted ones.

    Different variations can be fun too, started experimenting with clap-pull ups, jumping to the next bar (double pull ups) and "round the worlds"

    100 pull-ups is excessive. The most I've done is 127 pull-ups in one workout, and it injured me. Doing that many reps was hard on my joints. Since then, I've started doing weighted pull-ups, and my total reps is around 24-40 now. I feel this can be said for many exercises. Instead of high volume, do less with more weight. You'll recover faster, you won't have the pressure of doing super high volume, and it's easier to maintain proper form with less reps than more reps.

    Of course you can OP. In fact you should be able to do them easily and in a couple of minutes like this girl.

    3 days a week I aim for 50 pullups..usually sets of 5. I change my grip every set..pullups, chins, widegrip etc.. If I could do 50 easy, I would add weight not increase the reps.
    My 5/3/1 progress can be found here.

    A goal is a goal. Would I want to consistently do sets of 100? No. But I'd like to be able to say I A) have the strength and endurance to, and B) accomplish a goal.
