That's what SLOW eccentrics are for.
you're mom is slow and eccentric
that's still your biceps, forearms and lats, you dumbass
>not progressing into muscle-ups and bar planche
i had the weirdest triceps doms after i started doing pull ups again after pausing because of an injury
Had a case of Tricep tendonitis last year so all pushing movements were put on hold. I couldn’t even do pull-ups because I only felt it in my injured Tricep. Never realized how much strain is actually put on the Tricep muscle during a pull-up
>doesn't do upside down pull ups
Yes but it also filters fatties and weight loss is a common topic on IST if you haven't noticed
Instead of exercise some of these fucking fatties just need to control their hunger.
>Yes but it also filters fatties
Even better, pull ups are the best exercise to mog normies.
Arguably the best single lift for upper body but it isn't enough by itself for any muscle aside from lats.
When the bot gets caught.
>knees folded and crossed
Gay and even suboptimal.
Keep your feet straight in front of you, elevated slightly. Core tight, even brace before you pull from a dead hang. Pause at clavicle/chest level briefly, then reset. Congratulations, you performed your first proper pullup with great control and is now capable of form mogging 90% of the people in the average commercial gym who can even do pullups at all.
The fuck would I want to "brace the core" when I want to focus on pulling up?
Because you're bleeding force that recoils into your spaghetti legs. Bracing before virtually any lift will help with force production, you don't have to do it and there are gradients but it's there if you want/need to. Involuntarily tightens your core too.
Ill say what he said but better. Vertical force is the only way you will overcome gravity. Rigid torso means less force outward.
Whenever I do this my legs kick the wall. I can't just "flip around" either because then my neck or back might bump into the rack support bar. Curse of being lanklet
Most pullup setups are terrible. Half of the places in the gym I go to I can plant my face into the ceiling if I do a full ROM pullup.
I'm 5'10" with a 6'0.5" wingspan and there's one set of bars tall enough with enough clearance to get a proper dead hang, where I can also do full ROM pullups and toes to bar leg raises. The people arranging gyms are half reppers kek
Probably my favourite exercise to do. There’s something so satisfying about it. I alternate between pull-ups and chin-ups.
Are chin-ups any good? Other than training my biceps, of course
Chinups are more lat emphasis than pullups. But if you want to maximize biceps you have to isolate them, no variation of pullup will be enough.
>do chins first
>can max out at 20+
>do chins later, after other compounds
>struggle to get 10
Just do a 3x10 exercise and finish it before doing other
are chip ups as good as pull ups? When I do pull ups my left arm has shooting nerve pain from the wrist to the shoulder but I can do 15 chin ups straight with no problem. I feel like maybe I'm missing out on a gain not being able to do the pull up.
Covers your upper body's pull muscles. Still needs pushups for the push muscles. Lastly add squats and jump rope for legs and cardio to for have a full body minimalist workout plan.
replace or add dips and handstand push ups
your shoulders and traps will be seriously lacking without handstand push ups
Youll never lack anything noticeable with calisthenics, because youll always be limited to body weight.
So what if you can't do them? I'm very new to all this and I've never been a gym guy. I'd rather kill myself than use the assisted one, so what should I do?
swallow your pride and just use the assist machine. Or, lose more weight.
Lat pulldowns, rows, negatives
I can't touch my chest to the bar
What should I do
You have to arch pretty heavily to actually touch your chest. You should be able to get to upper chest level below your clavicles though, without necessarily touching depending on your feet setup. Try a false grip.
>crossing legs behind you
Not ur pecs, chi ups hit biceps better btw
Do I need to loose weight to do more pull ups? I can barely do 4.
You need to keep doing more pull ups. That's the only way to get better.
Try neutral grip for starters.
Isolations are good for getting more definition on muscles that aren't "big movers", or so I've heard (I'm 20% bodyfat and have been inconsistent with training so take what I say with a grain of salt). That aside, pull-ups are probably one of the best single exercises, I've experienced a great increase in general upper-body strength and aesthetic before doing just pull-ups. They'll work wonders if you've never trained back before.
