    At age 33 last feb i installed a bar for dead hangs for my back

    Dislocated elbow on one side, shattered (4 pieces,plate and 13 screws) on the other i didnt do any upper body from 23 to 33.

    Max ive hit is 13, can do about 11 at the moment
    One set till failure, basically the only lifting i do other than work, where im on the go all day every day.

    So for all the people who aay after 22 its over, im anecdotal evidence you can go 0 to 10 in less than a year.
    I feel fricking great about my body rn.

    i can do 3 in my first set. i'm 86kg 5'9'' (that's probably around 25% bf, i'm fat right now). i wasn't very strong back when i was 77kg 15%, but i could do 5x5, now i probably can do less than 7 reps in total (i always go for five sets to failure, i don't really care)

      I usually do 4 reps max weighted +10kg because I don’t like having to do more reps. I can also do 7 unweighted, both compute to 113kg 1RM which is a few kg off my 117kg 1RM with +23kg but maybe that one wasn't full ROM.
      This time last year I couldn't even do a single rep.

        Forgot to say I spam 1+ set almost every day. Lunch break, at night, when taking a walk.

    3 sets total. 1 set of 15, then 12, and finish with 10. Now I'm doing weighted sets of 3×8 with 25lbs. I'm currently hovering around 212lbs so I'm happy.

    If you want to get good at them you do them in sets. In particular I find descending rep ladders to be very effective for progression whether it’s with weight or not. For example a routine I’ve used before was:

    With 50lbs, sets are: 18, 16, 14, 12, 10
    Then drop to bodyweight, and do the following sets: 25, 23, 20, 18, 16, 14.
    Always taking as much time as need between sets.

    You also don’t have to do that many reps with such light weight, this has worked for me at higher working weights. I have found it’s most ideal though to do two descending ladders, one with a higher weight, then dropping the weight to something lower and doing a second descending ladder.
