    You are probably doing them wrong, and over using your forearms muscles

    Remember, it's a back, lats, bicep and a BIT of forearm exercise

    Imagine your hands are hook, and you are pulling fron your elbows, instead from your hand, be sure to pull with your back

    Pulls and chins are notorious for dropping off after the first set. Just focus on going close to failure and quality of reps not quantity.

    Is your second set going to the brink of failure?

      Not necessarily, i do struggle but it is not as intense as failure in other exercises, maybe its a nervous system or motivation issue?

    I dont have any helpful advise because I haven't made it there. Most I was ever able to do was 12 pull ups in a row back when I did rock climbing now im back to struggling for 3.

    How much do you weigh and where do you feel it most? It could just be a forearm issue.

      I weigh 75 kgs and feel it mostly in biceps and upper arm, ironically however those are my smallest muscle groups. Maybe they are limiting me in someway?

        75kg and 20 reps in two sets is good.

        You feel it in your biceps while doing a pullup? That is weird. Maybe it is your form. I know I feel it a bit in my biceps while doing chin ups but pull ups are all back for me. Maybe go slower and ensure you are doing it correct form. If you are how about doing your usual then swapping to doing lat pull downs with the weight set to 60kg or doing pull ups with some assistance and building from there. Its weird that your strength just goes completely but you can still build on it.

          Thanks man, lat pulldowns can help me break the plateau

          if you can't even get close to completing your third set than your number of reps per set is probably too high. you just aren't a 10 reps guy yet

          Damn I really wanna be a 10 reps guy

    I don't know if it'll work but have you tried switching up your grip? I've heard somewhere that it's healthier for your shoulders if you switch it up from time to time.
    So if you're doing pronated grip pull ups, switch to chin ups (supinated) then after 3 months, switch to neutral grip pull ups then switch back to pronated grip pull ups again. Rinse and repeat.

    Switch your grip up, I think that’s good for shoulder health in general, and when you do your pull-ups tilt your back down/chest up. You want to pull to your chest rather than getting your chin above, at least for me this makes me not only pull a further ROM but also engage the back way better

    What worked for me was doing 3x8 + one last set of 6, then every new pull workout I add 1 rep to the last set until 10, at that point you should be able to do 3 sets of 10.

    Im currently doing 3x10 pull ups, 5 minutes rest and 3x10 chin ups, would gladly receive some advices regarding Weighted pull/chin ups, like what % of my bodyweigh should I start adding to the belt?

    Maybe try changing it up a little bit. Do weighted pull ups one day, then a different rep range on another day, and 3x10 on a third day.
    Changing it up has worked for me. Allowed me to add 15kg to my 5rm in a few months. Not great progress, but I can do 35kg added x 5, then 2x4. Bodyweight is 81kg.

    Pull ups will always exponentially drop down in reps after a few sets, or just after the first if you go to failure. 2 years ago when I could do 20 reps max in one set, the second set would rarely go above 8 reps.
    So you should lower the reps such that you can do all 3 sets with the same reps with good form, and do a 4th set to failure. In a few months you will probably be able to do 3x10.
