      Nah. Pullups activate the cloits and gloits.

    There's a secret trick to making sure you hit the lats in this exercise, and it's the same as hitting the pecs on bench:
    >in between reps of your main exercise, do a 25% load accessory exercise and HYPER-FOCUS on only activating the lats/pecs
    For benching, it's Svend pressing. For pull-ups, you can do lat-pulldowns.

    Impossible to do a pull-up without lat activation, unless "marine pull-up" is something different to a regular pull-up.

    You probably don’t feel them in your lats because you’re not good enough at them yet. As you get better at them and your lats get stronger you’ll feel them more and more and be able to isolate them.

    Doing 50 pull-ups at the start of every back day (in as many sets as it takes you, I could only do 5 reps a set at first) made my back blow up and now I can consistently hit sets of 15 at 230 lbs. body weight.

      Do you do them weighted and have you increased your total reps or do you still do 50 rep warmups?

        I normally do them BW trying to do it in as few sets of as many reps as possible (I’m heavy enough that that’s usually enough to cook my back). The other day I did 100 reps but honestly it was boring as fuck and if my heart isn’t in something it’s hard to have the right intensity and mindset

        Sometimes I’ll add a 25 or 45 pound plate and go for the 50 reps, it just takes me more sets to do it. Any time I go heavier than that I get less activation usually but some people love going heavy.

          Do you change grip to do wide/chinup/neutral pullups? Also what else do you do on back days, high-rep pullups+rest of normal stuff seems like a lot.

          For the record I do seal rows, snatch grip deads, meadows rows, and upright rows (all in sets of 3 except meadows rows is 4 sets).

            I do like changing grips. Wide and close neutral, regular probated, and sometimes chin-ups with a deep stretch at the bottom light my lats up.

            One other move I really recommend is dumbbell pullovers, getting a good stretch at the bottom and squeezing the fuck out of your lats and pecs as you go up.

            Less is more with accessories if you’re natty IMO (got that philosophy from Eric Bugenhagen) so I try not to do more than 4 exercises on back day. The big stuff like pull-ups and compound-type rows are what really matters for building your back.

      how long to rest

      • 5 months ago

        Long as you have to to feel regenerated between sets really. It’ll might take a while at first to get it all done. Focus less on that and more on just getting clean focused reps in.

      Based. I've been doing pull ups since I was a kid (without understanding programming principles obviously) and only recently had it click for me how to get good lat engagement. after working up to a +65 lb weighted pull up, one day doing bodyweight reps I retracted my scapulas the way you would for a row and got the best lat pump of my life. Theres always something new to learn in the gym

      Looks good and solid, but your erectors spinae (the true sign of a strong stable back) are looking underdeveloped in comparison. Start hitting some weighted hypertensions

    There was this graph comparing different types of grips in pull exercices (pull up - chin up - neuntral grip) and it stated that chin ups target lats better than pull up grip.
    The difference was not that much of a big deal, but it was something more.

      This is true, they also target biceps more. Chin ups are objectively superior for muscle development whilst also being easier to perform. There is no reason to do pullups

    i have never ever felt my lats engage on any lat exercise.
    not memeing, not shitposting. not once
    the body just does the exercise automatically.

      It very well may be that they’re not developed enough yet. My pecs and lats both didn’t feel activated on stuff until I got them big enough.

        bro i'm 20 years into weight lifting.
        i went through airborne school where you do hundreds of pullups daily. i've been doing monkeybars and rope climbing for decades now.
        I'm telling you I feel nothing, the body just does the workout.

          does your chest hit the bar when doing pullups? you can do them wrong for 20 years. when I was in army my instructors didn't complain about my pullups but in retrospective I had shit form

    Yeah your body doesnt know how to properly use your back muscles. You should do slow focused lat pulldowns using the machine. Start from like 50lbs and pull down fully with just your lats and inner upper back. Dont cheat with shoulders chest etc. Make sure you have perfect form. Otherwise youll start developing chronic pain from poor pullup form
