    If you saw this thread and consciously wanted to type this leave this board
    I am 6'2 and got to 16 clean full rom reps , just train then Weighted after developing good mind muscle connection. The long term positives of training both the top and bottom positions of the movement far out weigh the strength benefits, do your pull ups and stfu IST

    Yes and only bloated powershitters will disagree.
    I would argue that chinups are better if adding weight, however

        they got rings at the gym I go to. Didn't think anything of them until I finally tried.

        bar pullups are a fricking meme now.

        I use neutral grips on a bar so I can do pullups between sets of dips on rings
        Might have to try pullups on the rings now though

        >I can do like 15 pull ups never like going real wide tho, should I?
        It takes some time to get used to because of shoulder positioning/movement mainly I'd say. You'll do 15 wides in 1-2 months.

      How do pull downs widen shoulders? I mean, I kinda see how they use read delts, but rear delts don't contribute that much to shoulder width, do they?

        nta
        But they do widen the shoulders, the top is what does. If you go really wide and pull yourself up you'll feel the top is harder, that's not only because of the muscle but because you're being strethed apart to

        I have no idea anon, I'm a DYEL who just decided to keep it really simple and spammed pull-ups and chin-ups as well as dips 3 times a week for (soon) 2 years. I just don't like gyms and complicated programs.
        When I've started I thought it'd give me arms. Instead my arms didn't start growing until I've added dips. I feel like my triceps are stronger than my biceps. And yeah I've read somewhere than wide grip pull-ups are the best way to get the proportions I wanted and I started doing them, and starving to get my waist circ down. It worked.

          Arm is 70% triceps, weighted dips is the best triceps exercise. Pull-ups/chinups are not enough for biceps, you need to isolate with curls

      i can only do 6 pullups (im close to being obese) and it feels like the hardest part is always the bottom, what do i need to strengthen?
      i always see guys barely getting their chin to bar level when they fatigue but for me the sticking point is always at the bottom, never the top part

      If you can, go to the gym and use the assisted pullup machine to do lengthened partials.
      That's what worked for me.

      If you can only do half a pull up, then do sets of one half pull up until you can get to one full ROM. Then do sets of one until you can do two, etc. etc.

    How to achieve the first pull up of my life without fricking my shit up or embarrassing myself?

    • 1 month ago

      bro honest to god answer here
      buy rings and do rows + stop being fat
      that's it, once you lower your mass enough and strengthen the posterior chain you will do your first pullup or maybe even more than a few pullups, just give it time, few weeks should be enough
      don't bother with assistance bands, you can do jumping pullups but only after you are done with rows
      just spam rows until you can't even do one, then you move up a little bit with your legs (the more parallel to the ground you are the harder the rows) and keep doing more rows until you don't feel your back and arms
      the most important things is the retract the scapula at the bottom, always do your reps like this, because this is how you are going to do pullups after

      so it should be like this
      start at the bottom position relaxed
      engaged core, retract scapula
      ascend
      keep it 1-2 sec
      controlled negative
      relax scapula
      repeat

      you can do rows with elbows that point at your back or like a more wide variation where your arms go to the sides instead, pick the one you are most comfortable with

      I went HARD on the lat pulldown till I was doing more than my own body weight and needed help pulling it down so I could lock my legs in. After that pull ups were so much easier.

      honest answer is stop being obese, and then train lat pull downs up to body weight or get resistance bands for assistance. but most of the time if you can't do a single pull up it's because you're overweight. yeah it's hard anon but you can do it.

      When I started I just hanged from the bar until I was comfortable, then I added trying to pull myself up. 3 sets of that.
      After I did those I started doing negatives, if you cant do full rom negatives just do them partially and control the fall.

      I got my first pull up in a month and a half

      That's what worked for me.

      I have the same problem (240lbs bw, 6reps), but opposite part of the movement-at the top.
      Explosive out of the bottom, but I can only just get my chin to the bar. I can't even imagine touching my chest to the bar.

        If you can, find a local calisthenics park and use the short bars to do body-rows.
        The more you train them, the stronger your lockout will be.

      You're probably not pulling with your left side so your right side has to compensate or your stabilizers in your right shoulder are weak. Have you ever filmed your sets from behind?
