    My shoulder hurts like shit whenever I try a chin up/ pull up now. Tendonitis is a bitch.

    >can do 20 perfect-form, full ROM chinups
    >cannot do 8 perfect-form pullups
    wat gives? i am progressing(can do 10 pullups with 75% ROM) but pronated grip (especially wide grip) feels so unnatural to me

      Pullups are simply a more difficult exercise

        true

        Weak lats

        Weak upper back. Pullups are more upper back (due to elbow flare), while chinups are more lats (humerus closer to body + external rotation)

        not lats, but yes i think upper mid section of my back is probably weak. what should i do? doing more pullups i guess?

          Inverted rows would help a lot if your upper back is weak as they're more specific to pullups than other rowing variations due to also being a calisthenics exercise

    Chinups are a lat-biased back exercise, they're very mediocore for biceps. Incline curls mog the shit out of chinups for biceps.

    Got 8 reps with + 10 kg today, neutral grip. What are impressive numbers on this, maybe +25? I'm on +25 on dips, but I estimate something over +40 might be impressive

      Chinups are easy af 45lbs on the belt is basic

        They are easy, but I never see people doing them, let alone with weights. Even dips, I'm not strong, but I've honestly not seen someone out dip me in the 15 months i've been at the gym.

          I've only seen dyelish skinny people do calisthenics at my gym, weighted calisthenic lifters are still approaching 1/2/3/4 by what I can see but not quite there yet. I don't think heavy lifters focus on these.

    I did weighted chins 40kg for 6 reps on chins & my arms were 13.5 inches. CHINUPS FOR BICEPS IS A FUCKING LIE.
    I've just hit 15 inches after incorporating real direct arm work.
    If you get big biceps from chins, you were going to get big biceps no matter what.

      Did you do the chinups with full range of motion(chest touching the bar)?

        No, that'd be insane strength for 40kg additional weight for 6 reps, I did chin over bar.
        But chest to bar, despite being harder, would bias the lats more & the biceps even less so I can't see that as a solution
