Pullup thread - 100 pullups every day for a month edition

TL;DR: Did at least 100 pullups each day for a month (August, 2022). Can recommend.

I challenged myself to do 100 pullups each day, every day for a month, no restday was allowed. I wanted to do this experiment on myself just to test out my consistency, willpower, and the exercise itself. I wanted to fuck around to find out more about rests, high volume exercises, et cetera since we can trust the science(citation needed).
Stats: 5'10, my weight fluctuated between 80-85kg. When I started I could do 15 pullups on a good day. With +10kg added, 10 was barely achievable(shitty ROM, kipping etc). Also I wasn't exercising seriously before.
Pullups: 95%+ were done hammergrip at shoulderwidth, bodyweight only. Some were done on rings, same grip. I was doing sets of 10-15, one time when I felt amazing I did 20.

    Experiences:
    - Week one was fine, I was doing Grease the groove.
    - Week two, started doing sets of 15, had better ROM, by the end of week two smaller muscles started getting DOMS
    - Week three, fatigue, everything ached, I felt like shit, lack of rest took its toll, workouts started to cluster into morning/evening workouts with 15-20 minutes rest
    - Week four, DOMS killing me, started doing even more stretches, the whole ordeal felt like a chore, this was testing willpower, resttime was dropped to 10 minutes
    - Last few days, DOMS going away, exercise feels a bit easier but lack of rest is not great, willpower is drained, dropped resttime to 5 mins, added 20 pushups to each set

    Gainz: Forearms got bigger, since I'm a wirstlet it looks comical; Biceps obv. ; Chest got noticably huge, I wasn't expecting this; back... idk, I have 18-20% bodyfat, didn't noticed anything exceptional.
    Conclusion: Will I do this again? Maybe. Won't do this high volume for some time I'm sure. Morning/evening workout is nice, I'll probably keep that routine. I will do more streches. Also will drop the amount down to 4x15 or something, and add some weight.

    ROLLING for today, after that I'll take the rest of the week off pullup-wise. Roll for your wheyfu and do pullups!

    Also, good job op. I was thinking of doing something similar, but greasing the groove with pullups fucks with my wrist, so I'm ordering a bar with neutral grip handles.

    Good shit OP.
    Two questions. Did you do anything besides pullups? Seems like this'd be a cool experiment to run alongside a regular routine (minus any back work ofc). And what're your +10kg pullup numbers now?

      Do you weigh like 100lbs or something? A full grown man pulling up his 200lbs body 100 times a day is a decent back workout for even a very muscular guy

        Not him but I could do 23 full range pullups at 190lbs bodyweight last time I went all out. Also roll.

          So alright you did 23, let's say next set you can do 17, next set you do 13, that's still only 53. What now, wait until later in the day to do the rest? He also said a lot more than 100. And doing that every day, untrained, or as he put it "just started exercising"?

      gtfo. Did you misread pullups as pushups? I actually did do that on entering the thread first. No way someone is just casually doing a lot more than 100 pullups a day and "just started exercising", why feel the need to make up something like that.

    Fuck it I'll roll. Any tips on how to make pain in hands and wrist go away? In particular the bones? Its what keeps me from being able to do pullups/pushups long term.

      Neutral grips(hammergrip) worked for me. Maybe try rings as grips. You can try doing pushups on your knuckles or using pushup stands. Both places your hands into more neutral position and be a lot more gentle on tendons. Bones should only hurt if you twist your arms in a weird way.

      [...]
      >Narrower grips activate chest too. You pull your upper arm down to your torso.
      Ok but I thought you only activated your chest with PUSHING movements, not pulling ones.

      You push with Triceps only. Pectorals move humerus closer to torso. If you do benchpresses chest activation wont push weighs just makes sure your upper arm will hold position and not collapse. If your upper arm will be farther away from your chest, pecs are still active but less tense, won't do that much work compared to near starting position.
      Pushing during pullups is for the retarded.

        Fuck I never thought of that but that means that benchpressing has got to be less effective than DB pressing, since with DB pressing you also bring your hands together at the end of the movement.

        Thankfully I've been doing both just to be sure.

          Also incline bench is superior with barbell compared to regular benchpress because you could go closer with the bar since your chest has muscles, fat, ribcage, pepperoni nipples whatever, while on incline you can go pretty far back since it starts from the clavicles. Same way decline pushups on paralettes kills your chest better than benchpress. Sadly the intensity falls off kinda soon, since you have to use variations with calisthenics, and using weighs with pushups is kinda fucky for that exercise. Next best thing is planche pushups for that muscle, but that requires immense strength in your shoulder. At least you wont end up with pecs that look like boobs. Heh.
