how weak are you
i can deadlift 2.5x my bodyweight im not that weak
anon....... powerlifters are weak in particular areas they don't exercise directly.
That's why great powerlifters of the past(who were jacked) did Bodybuilding before the current specialization obsession occured.
DO YOUR FUCKING PULL-UPS, BICEP CURLS, CAFE RAISES, AND FOREARM ISOLATIONS.
Yeah you’re supposed to do pullups vertically
That's not a chin-up, it's neutral grip. Personally I've been doing regular pull-ups on and off for years, never had problems with elbows, biceps or shoulders.
still a chinup, whats wrong with neutral grip
Nothing wrong with it, neutral grip pull-ups are considered to be the easiest on your joints compared to other pull-up variations.
Far as I know, chin-ups are when your palms are facing you (supine).
I got bad elbow tendinitis from waited, neutral grip pull ups. Was a bitch to get rid of took about half a year. I didn’t do any pull ups that entire time. Afterwords I could still do it doesn’t strict form, but only with bodyweight. Now my pull ups are stronger than ever but I switch to chin ups and I only do them once a week. My advice as a pull up aficionado is to limit frequency of training them, regardless, of which specific grip you choose. Don’t train weighted pull up some more than once, or twice a week. It’s a great move, but it’s hard on your joints and your connective tissue will take longer to strengthen than your skeletal muscle. Enjoy your pull ups and certainly don’t avoid them. Just be smart about how often you hit it.
did you just grind through the pain, anon? i have elbow tendonitis from chinups most likely
Hey guys, sorry for the typos I’m using talk to text lol but I’ll try to proofread better this time. Do not, I repeat, do not growing through the pain!
The weird thing was I always figured if I started to get pattern overload from pull-ups it would creep up slow. But for some reason it just happened all at once. Like I was completely fine 100% pain-free and once I crossed that threshold, I couldn’t do a single pull up even with just my body weight without pain. So my only choice was to cut pull ups out entirely. However, I was able to grow my back quite a bit and actually bulked 20 pounds during this time. I manage this by doing seated cable, rows and lat, pull downs, using separate handles and lifting straps. The straps allowed me to relax my hands and forearms and focus on my back, musculature more, and the separate handles allowed me to take my body through a much more natural path than a fixed bar would allow for. If you feel any pain at all on this movement or really any exercise stop immediately. Try some alterations and if that doesn’t work, scratch that exercise entirely.
Also, I forgot to mention this, but it’s super important!! my elbow pain did not improve until I started supplementing collagen. After two weeks of collagen supplementation, my pain was entirely gone, and I was able to resume pull ups. Hope that helps!
thank you, anon
i might have to drop chinups entirely and go back to lat pulldowns
will have to start supplementing collagen aswell
how much collagen were you taking daily?
yea don't forget your Vitamin C for collagen synthesis
Just use picrel,
A week ago I woke up with inflamed/swollen wrist in the ulnar area, didn't fall or hit anything the day before, only did my usual weighted calisthenics + db isolations workout (hardest part were ring pullups at 92kg be with 10kg added and 25kg lateral raises (for 10-15, not ego lifting)). Don't know what to do about it now, can't afford garden gnome appointments at the moment and doubt they would do anything besides making me wait 3 months for a useless cray. Can't do any arm workouts because of the pain when gripping strongly in neutral or underhand position, I've been limited to bodyweight overhand pullups and pushing movements but everything sucks when your dominant hand is suddenly at 40-50% strength.
There is no point taking collagen. It is protein like any other, and gets broken down to aminoacids in your gut like any other protein.
Aminoacids are used to synthesize collagen by your cells, and it doesn't matter where they came from, as long as you have all the aminoacids needed.
Sounds like you're fat. Do them assisted with a band to take tension off
Wtf.. he's barely even going up.
I don't understand strongmen. You can trade away your aesthetics and athleticism for what?
They don't look aesthetic and they can't even fight too well so what's the point to it?
I guess it's not as retarded as professional bodybuilding....
You're garbage. I can do more pull-ups than you. Get fucked loser
>You can trade away your aesthetics and athleticism for what?
To be strong anon, it's literally in the name.
You have to manage your form.
Ok form managed, what now
>fixable by doing push ups
Balance is key. Just 5-10 push-ups after each set is enough.
>t. fixed mine in a week doing push ups
Neutral hurts my elbows more than standard hands outside shoulders pullups which helped me fix my impingement.
