I want to be able to do more pullups. They are already in my routine.
I can do 5 in the first set afterwards it goes down slowly. I am adding reps every week.
Should I keep doing as many as I can or should I stop before failure?

Would like to know this too. Just started doing pullups today, I did 1 set to failure then just did the negative portion really slowly for 2 sets of 12 afterwards. No idea how I should actually go about it though in order to be able to do more reps.Oggie22's Lifting Log: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=163231711
