    Pull-UP PR (18!)

    Set a record recently on pull-ups. I'd like to think that one day I could get 20, but I think this might be a record that I'll never beat.

    If the embedded video works, thank MajorT

    Nice! Great tempo too. I think 16 is my best in a single set, I have been doin a lot of BW pullups lately though usually 50+ reps (5X10) 2-3X per week. I might go back to weighted for awhile and use versa grips to eliminate the elbow strain.

    I was watching a Franco interview and he claimed they never used weights on pull-ups, just hit out as many as humanly possible with body weight. Cant remember if he said why, but there has to be a reason.

    If I don't use grip assistance on weighted it tends to lead to elbow tendon issues. Using weighted pull-ups is a great way to vary the intensity of the movement though. After building up to sets of 8-10 with a 45lb plate doing them unweighted makes you feel like you can just shoot up over the bar like a muscle-up. If pull-ups bother your elbows though, even at bodyweight) versa grips will eliminate the elbow strain.

    Thanks guys. This was videoed at my wife's gym. She's a black card member of . . . ahem . . . Planet Fitness, and I go with her as a guest, but I usually work out in my basement. I will say that Planet Fitness has been a hyoooge ego boost Because most of the members of Planet FITness aren't fit! Since I superset my pushing and pulling exercises, immediately after incline DB benching, I go straight to the ASSISTED pull-up station, and if anyone is there, I politely ask if I can work in. To date, I've always been told "yes," and after knocking out 15 or more bodyweight reps (sometimes I'll do BW +35 with a dumbbell held between by crossed ankles then drop the DB and do another six or so bodyweight), I'm almost always complimented. I worked in with one guy (and he was fairly jacked) doing weighted dips with a 75. The temptation was too much, so I used his DB to get two reps. He had to try it too and managed 1 3/4 reps which was good considering he outweighed me by ~20 lbs.

    Tim, one thing I've been doing with my pull-ups is to do them thumbless. If you look at the video, I think you can see my thumbs OVER the bar. This seems to put less strain on my elbows. That and reasonable volume (I probably average 90-120 weekly pulling reps) has kept my elbows pain free for several years now (knock-wood).

    I might try to master a muscle up too, but since dips are a "no go" for my wonky shoulders, I suspect that the upper portion will likely give me the same trouble unless the upward momentum provides sufficient relief.

    Very nice! I just started doing pull-ups this block, maybe by the end of the 10 or 11 weeks I will try to “max out” to see how many I get.
    Bodybuilding is much more than an hour in the gym a few days a week---it's a lifestyle that changes all your perceptions about how to live, eat, and rest. It feeds the mind as much (and sometimes more so) than the body.

    Good stuff, well done.

    The pull-up has always been my arch-nemesis. 10 months ago I couldn't do a single rep, but I'm pleased to say I can now do 5-6 reps with 33 pounds strapped to my waist. I don't think I could ever manage 18 reps even unweighted though. I see people do them as a warm up excericse, almost like you would do a push-up or sit-up, but for me they are incredibly taxing.

    Very nice. I only do BW these days. I used to do weighted with as much as 135 on me. But like others have said, the tendon issues became a problem really fast.

    I now do the with varying my body position within the pull-up themselves to 'get at' my lats the best way I can. It is pretty effective for me (I think).

    The back is so complex that even when the movement looks the same from a bystander, you can focus on different areas to pull with. But there is equally a great place for doing AMRAP with whatever muscles want to pull! Both contribute to building a well rounded back. I think that takes more effort and something I see the least of in my years of the gym.

    Nice work!

    Put me in the body weight over weighted group. I still do weighted on occasion, but I save my heavy weight back work for the rows.

    Body weight is still a respectable weight for just about everyone, and I notice a huge difference in quality of reps (dead hang, initiating with lays, touching chest at top, pulling elbows “together”). When I add weight, reps get sloppy, arms become more involved, tendinitis sets in, and it becomes more about simply moving the weight up and down as opposed to stimulating the muscles I’m targeting.

    Body weight is still a respectable weight for just about everyone, and I notice a huge difference in quality of reps (dead hang, initiating with lays, touching chest at top, pulling elbows “together”). When I add weight, reps get sloppy, arms become more involved, tendinitis sets in, and it becomes more about simply moving the weight up and down as opposed to stimulating the muscles I’m targeting.
    I find a lot of exercises can be like this, especially back stuff. Shoulder press also can invite more and more arch to get the weight up. I like adding weight anyway to push myself, can always reset and lower the weight to work on strict form. I've been doing weighted pull ups and assisted one arm pull ups lately - getting full rom is a struggle. But then I drop down to 2 arm bodyweight and it feels amazing

    Very impressive, Payton!

    I started doing pull ups about three months ago. I do them weighted but very slowly to concentrate on form. I'm up to four sets of six with 20lbs.
