        Have you ever thought you're a dyel with weak joints?
        I've done pull ups weighted and bw for 47 days in a row.
        I started struggling with 4 chin ups and now I can do 2 sets of 8 wide grip pronated pull ups without ever having felt any type of pain.

            >8 pull-ups
            Weighted pull-ups, right? Right??

            That's why I wrote I used to struggle with 4. Because it's not that impressive in itself. I got my first pull up 3 years ago, and in only 47 days I've made more progress than in all that time. I'm also 90kg.
            My point was:
            >weak at pull ups
            >fat
            >still didnt get any joint pain

          I prefer unweighted pullups. I could do sets of 5 @ +55 lbs, but the pump and gains that i received from instead doing max sets of nonweighted felt better on my joints and overall. I am up to 18 nonweighted and i will continued to do that.

    >do you do weighted pull ups
    Yes
    >why?
    They are the pinnacle of upper back strength
    >few people do them
    Because they are hard. You need to be both strong and not fat. It’s easier to cope on the lat pull down machine.
    >(insert powershitter cope reply here)
    I literally do pull ups at powershart fatass weight without being fat.

    I started doing these outside in the sun when gyms were closed during covid and I still do a full ~45 minute pull workout every week. I actually really look forward to it.

        I end up doing 15 sets of 10-20 reps. Walking in the sun between places to do different grips, so like ~3 mins of rest between each. Pull-ups, chin-ups, parallel bars, and some angled grips. Some weighted some not.

    Did 5 sets of 3 yesterday with a 40 lbs vest AND a 20 lbs vest on top of it.

    >Why
    Because doing strict pullups with a total of 230 lbs mogs the frick out of Rowing 175 lbs, and with that pulling strength I haven't met the blue belt yet who can stay postured up in my guard if I've decided I don't want them to.

      Why don’t you get a dip belt instead of doing pull ups as a double vested moronio

        Vests have more uses. Why don't you get them instead of being a belt philistine?

    I do weighed chin ups (I don't care about the chin/pull/neutral debate it just doesn't matter very much). I don't have amazing numbers or anything, but I gradually increase the weight, both my heavier sets and my more moderate sets for volume. I really only do body weight, pull-ups or chin-ups for warm up days these days.
    I'm a smaller guy it probably came a little easier to me at the beginning that it does a lot of people. I'm 5'6 and weigh about 165 pounds. There was a time when I was doing 5x10 of body weight chin-ups and at some point I just had to overhaul my routine so it didn't take so long. So I decided to just do gradually increasing weights for weighted chin ups and do fewer sets and reps to keep making progress without my workouts taking forever.
    The nice thing about weighted poles and chins is that you can start with his little weight as you want, there's no minimum weight really. With something like overhead press you have to start with some sort of bar or at least dumbbell handles or something. You could literally just put a 1 lb weight between your knees if you wanted to start there with weighted vertical pulls.

      Meant to say I only do body weight chin-ups or pull-ups for warm-ups, that is the vast majority of my sets are weighted one way or another. A commagot in there by accident which makes it confusing to read.

      agree with grip not mattering. I know science based lifting gets a bad rep, but there's a similar lat activation in both close grip underhand and wide grip. Only difference is underhand targets biceps more. My favorite will always be neutral grip ring pull ups tho.

        I used to use one of those doorway pull up bars that had neutral grip bars sticking out. Then I got a pull up and dip station that doesn't have them and I kind of miss them. I would still mostly do chin-ups, but I'm considering getting some of those handles that hook on so i can do neutral grip stuff again.

    yes i do. greatest overall back movement i know. can be a bit rough on the ellbows. also they can be pretty hard. in my experience weighted calisthenics tends to progress faster and easier than both regular calisthenics and regular weighted movements. just get up to 8 to 12 regular pullups then add 10 lbs. i'm currently at 70lbs added at a bodyweight of 190, for 8 reps.

    Not yet, but I want to. How many body-weight pullups should I be able to do before I should move to weighted ones?

    I’m at 3x13 unweighted. Pull ups are one of the comfiest exercises imo. I weigh 70kg and am 6 ft, so when should I start doing them weighted?

    I started doing them over covid and never looked back. I can do x10 with 1pl8 and x3 with 2pl8 at 185lb. Unweighted around 15/16 but I rarely max them out.

    My top tip would be to shoot for an ambitious number or reps and try to get there in as few sets as possible. I go for 30 reps with 1pl8 and my sets look something like 10/7/5/4/4

    Yes, been doing them for 3 months for now. I only do them on the first day of pull of my PPL, the other day I prefer doing then BW. My currents stats are
    >8, 6, 5 reps with a 16kgs/35?lbs kettlebell with 3 minutes of rest
    The first day of weighted I did 6 as my max, progress seems slower than I anticipated

    I don't like pullups. It's frustrating being limited by your grip, confusing to program because of all the muscles it uses, and it's hard to figure out the right set rep scheme for both of those reasons plus the lifting your bodyweight combined with pl8s. I might get into them this year specifically because doing what you don't like is often what you need, but I'm thinking I'll do them unweighted and go for 20+ reps.

      >limited by your grip
      Grip is unironically more applicable and important than most other muscle groups in daily life. Train your grip.

    just increase reps with body weight, it builds the same amount of muscle as adding weight. only once you hit 30 reps with body weight you can start thinking about adding weight.
