    Question Pull up reps not increasing

    I got a pull up bar about 4 months ago. I've defenitly made a lot of progress and my form has gotten alot better. Currently I can do 7 wide grip , 8 normal grip, and 8 chin ups. In the past month I haven't really increased. This doesnt bother me but If I'm still doing same amount of reps will I still make gains?

    You need to do lots of sets of 3-4 reps. Dont bother with wide grip chins until you can do 12 strict ones.

    ^^^^ This. If you've stalled in your progress, you most likely need more volume. Just do more.

    alternate the grips, just targets different muscles, by varying it you will increase overall faster. Good luck. aim for conistent sets of a certain rep range.
