    Weighted Pullup/Dip Specific Programs

    Has anyone ever heard of any routine specific to these two exercises. I'm able to do several of each with bodyweight but was wondering if theres any programs out there that plan out workouts and what weight to use (like in wendlers 5/3/1 for example). I want to train 3/4 days a week looking to bulk and want a planned progression utilising these exercises.


    I obviously plan to train legs also on a seperate day. But just wondering what plans are out there to follow for the above two exercises.

    Thanks!

    No reason why weighted dips can’t replace bench press. As long as their is a plan for incremental increases over time. Same for pull ups.

    You are most likely looking at a PPL if that is the route you wanna go down.

    Have you dabbled with archer pullups, iso holds, tempo, grip (thumb position & width) etc - there's quite a lot of ways to progress pullups before chucking on some more weight.

    Easier to add weight then do harder variations, physically and mentally.

    Agree with both, changing variety (like archer etc) is a more intelligent approach. Harder mentally to do it by variation.

    But when you see someone waddle up to the pull-ups with a 20Kg (45lb) plate hanging like a giant 3rd test icicle and krank out a big set of precise pull-ups, that's ****** impressive and scores off the scale on the matcho bro-meter, so adding weight will always be popular.
    Faith in Jesus first and faith in squats second.
    Then other details will start to slot themselves into place.

    Tactical Barbell has strategies for programming weighted calisthenics. Any of their templates will work.

    I only do dips. Been working amazingly, to me they're superior to benching.

    No doubt about it.
    It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

    It's easy to not be afraid of tigers when you're sitting in your living room watching a television program about tigers. When you're in the jungle where the tigers are, it's quite a different story.
