        Do you do them from deadhang with a wide grip like the pic? That gives me a massive lat stetch when im at the bottom of each rep, maybe you should check your form

            Don’t cover your weaknesses with straps, do exercises to increase your grip strength so it’s no longer your weakest link (it shouldn’t be on pull ups ffs)

            What are you gonna do when your backs the weakest link? Kip like a little b***h?

    Not many people know this but no muscles are actually engaged whilst completing a pull up.

    You’re actually using telekinesis to levitate your chest to parallel with the bar.
    Are you fricking moronic OP?

      >the chin has never traveled over the bar, he just did the cringe tilt as if he did
      >most of the "reps" were done by violently swinging the legs forward to gain momentum

      How is he not able to do even one full ROM pull up without kipping?
      His arms are massive

        Overhand grip (pullups rather than chinups) use surprisingly little biceps.

    I swapped out lat pulldowns for pull-ups, followed by negative pull-ups. For the first time since I started training I experience lat DOMS.

    Maybe it's the reverse for you, I don't know. Figure out what works for you.

    Retract your scapula when you do them and you will feel it.

    Unironically they probably do more than any other upper body exercise. If I could only do one lift for upper body the rest of my life it would be pullups.

      You can even feel them in the triceps if you do enough. Only problem is if you get tendon issues. I can't do many chin ups anymore because the tendons never heal.

    Your grip is too high. Rotate your hands so your grip is more under the bar. Or if you're doing a chinups rotate in a bit so your thumb can't go over. Before you start your first rep go to a dead hang then retract your scapula. This retracted posistion will be the bottom of your rep. Now rep slow all the way up 3-4 or so seconds don't speed rep. Try to bring your chest to the bar. You will feel your lats by the end. Just keep doing sets like that until you can more voluntarily squeeze your lats and rhomboid. Add weight to keep the rep max around 8 if you tend to lose focus in longer sets.

    checked
    I found the cheat code for pull ups
    >be stuck on 10, 9, 8 reps for a while
    >grab the dipping belt, load on an extra 10kg, frick it
    >work my way to 10, 6, 5
    >dipping belt goes missing
    >*rage intensifies*
    >do bodyweight once again
    >pull handles and almost go into muscle up by accident
    >*wtf*
    >bang out 13 in a row with ease (stopped in case I ruined the next sets)
    >same repeats again

    bros, get a fricking dipping belt and load up extra weight

    Pullups are probably the best exercise in terms of an effort to aesthetics ratio. They work your arms, your abs and your lats, and to a lesser extent your shoulders and chest too. If I could do no other exercise I'm confident I could still have a great physique doing nothing but pullups.
    Inshort, I don't know wtf you're doing OP, but if you don't feel anything even when doing proper form, chin over bar, or better yet, chest to bar, pullups then I don't know what to tell you.

      pullups, chinups, dips, something for legs, and a belt for weight
      literally all you need

    They destroyed my left forearm, I can bang 9-10 in a row and I've been doing them for a year.
    Been in pain for 3 weeks now, should I just take a week off, bros?

    Pull-ups are quite hard exercise to do correctly, most beginners do kipping and lack the correct spinal form. Aim your chest to the bar, legs hanging straight down, they're not allowed to move. Only thing that moves in proper pull-ups is you upwards and downwards and your upper arm.

    Also, do not cross your legs like that homosexual in the picture.

    I will never understand this line of thinking. If they didn't do anything, as in, did not work any muscle than you would be able to do hundreds of reps because there's no muscle fatigue. Yet here we are, you can barely do 10 I'm guessing, you struggle like crazy and then show up here to ask if they 'do' anything. Amazing.
