    i cant do one pullup

    Today was the first time i tried doing a pullup. The bar where you do it its right in the middle of the gym and everybody can see you, there werent alot of ppl and i thought its the perfect time that i should test my strength. I stretch my arms and firmly grab the bar i try pulling my body upwards, i go half way when i feel a pain in my shoulder, i thought i dislocated it and being afraid of injuries i quickly let go of the bar and fall down, as i land i slide backwards and almost hit my head on the leg curl machine wich was right behind me. It was a complete fail, im not strong enough to do a single pull up. I checked to see if any1 saw me falling and yea everybody was looking at me.

    What other exercises can i do to get a strong back, so i can start doing pull ups? besides BB rows because i tried it once and almost fell on my face

    (im 5'11 135 lbs)

    OP stick with Lat Pulldowns for a while.

    Also, there should be a pull-up machine at your gym where there's a pad that you rest your knees on. The more weight you add the easier it gets. If it doesn't have it then stick to lat pulldowns lol.

    Everyone starts somewhere. I came to BB.com to get tips on doing things correctly (got sucked into the Misc).

    I suggest assisted pull up machine (I've heard both good and bad about this approach) or get pull up bar at home and stand on something and do negatives. Even if you can't do one...just keep trying you will get there.

    Starts doing all kinds of back exercises. Lat pulldowns, rows and so on...keep progressing and go heavy. Eventually you'll build up enough back strength to start doing pull-ups. Once you can do a few, start doing negatives to increase your strength even more

I stretch my arms and firmly grab the bar i try pulling my body upwards, i go half way when i feel a pain in my shoulder, i thought i dislocated it and being afraid of injuries i quickly let go of the bar and fall down, as i land i slide backwards and almost hit my head on the leg curl machine wich was right behind me. It was a complete fail, im not strong enough to do a single pull up. I checked to see if any1 saw me falling and yea everybody was looking at me.

    What other exercises can i do to get a strong back, so i can start doing pull ups? besides BB rows because i tried it once and almost fell on my face

    (im 5'11 135 lbs)
    dude, who cares. There are a lot more people that cannot do pullups than you think. At least you were brave enough to attempt them.

    Just do negatives. grab a stool, and jump up in the pullup position then slowly lower yourself.

    also perform lat pulldowns all of those will help with your pullup.

    This, you walk up to any non-lifter and i can guarantee that like 95% will not be able to do a single pullup.. I just used to get my friend to hold my legs to help when I failed and focused on lat pull-downs for a while I can do 3 full sets easily now

    don't waste your time with assisted machines and lat pulldowns

    Do slow negatives of the movement and also look into the "grease the groove" theory. Practice doing pullups alot. You will be able to do a pullup in no time if you do this.

    Jump up to the bar and lower yourself as slowly as you can. Also lat pulldowns with low weight, don't know why people would say not to do this.

    ^this
    I would do 10 neg reps and on the last one jump to the top and hold as long as possible. Super set with lat pulldowns. It sucks, but you'll reap the benefits.

    5'11" 135 is anorexic IMO


    Full body 3x a week

    Superset Squats (ATG)w/Machine Calves 3x5 (3x10 for calves)
    Bench Press 3x8
    T-Bar Rows/Assisted Pullup Machine 3x8
    EZ Curls 3x8
    Dips 3x8
    Superset DB Lateral Raise w/DB reverse flyes 3x8

    On the other Day, just substitute Squats with Deadlift/w Machine Calves 3x5 (3x10 calves)


    And every session add reps or weight. NO matter what


    And ofc eat good and sleep good.
