Hello?

Hello IST, what is the best workout and diet type to get to 3x8 Bodyweight Chin-ups?

I am 27 years old, 1.87m, 100kg and currently can do 3x8 assisted chin-up machine chin-ups with 30kg help. I am doing the Reddit Recommended Bodyweight Fitness routine, which is:
3x5-8 vertical pull SS bulgarian split squat
3x5-8 verticacl push SS single leg deadlift
3x5-8 horizontal push SS 3x5-8 horizontal pull
3x8-12 abs SS 3x8-12 obliques SS 3x8-12 lower back

        one set of chinups every day to failure

        by training

          wouldn't that be hard to recover from? shouldn't I have at least one day rest between sets?

            try it out yourself
            every single time I see someone struggling with pullups or whatever it's because they are following cookie cutter leddit shit

            even if you did 1 set every day to failure you'd be resting 23 hours, 59 minutes between sets
            you're resting already every minute of the day you aren't training, stop limiting yourself and achieve your human potential.

      187cm is above average in every country.

    Lose weight. Recommended exercises: fork putdowns x failure. Also do chins every day, look up greasing the groove

    How many full ROM unassisted chins can you do right now, anon?
    I have never used an assisted machine to do chin ups or pull ups. An anon already mentioned greasing the groove, and that's a good method. I think at some point the way to get better doing actual chin ups requires doing more actual chin ups. Unless you can't do any yet, obviously you should stick with other stuff to build up that strength in that case.

      Not op here,
      >I have never used an assisted machine to do chin ups or pull ups
      Is using a 15lb resistance band fine though? I mean it's still assisted but you get the full ROM, I think. Right now I do 5x6-8 resistance band pull ups, and "as many sets as necessary to hit 100" Australian pull-ups.
