Just curious how many times a week people include pullups.
I do a 5 day split:
Mon - Chest
Tues - Back
Weds - Legs
Thurs - off (sometimes abs and a little cardio)
Fri - Shoulders
Sat - Arms
Sun - off
Currently I include pullups, 3 or 4 sets to absolute failure, on Back day, usually the first exercise of the workout. Just bodyweight for now, I can usually get 7 decent dead-hang wide(ish) grip pullups on each of my first 2 sets, then it drops off fast till I'm only getting a couple at a time. I'll finish with some negatives till I'm completely tapped. The numbers were higher till one of the better trainers at my gym pointed out that I was cheating on my form...
I've only been lifting for about 5 months, am trying to bulk. Started at 137lbs. and 10% BF, right now at 147 and 10% BF. I would really like to improve my pullup numbers though (and of course have the lats to show for it ) Of course I'd like to work up to weighted pullups.
Does it make sense to work in pullups more than once a week, or is it too much?
