      Fat on long term cut, I was pretty happy today that I managed to do a couple of pull ups at 290 lbs, wasn't even part of my usual thing. I was just doing squats and sometimes I use the pull up handles to stretch a little, but for some reason I just went for it. Now looking forward to losing more weight and being able to do more reps. We're all going to make it bros.

        Good job anon, it's impressive that you can do them at that weight. It's pretty difficult even for a lanklet like me. We're all gonna make it.

        If you can actually do pull ups at 290lbs then thats absurdly impressive.

    Bought a pullup bar a few weeks ago. Started with negatives. Been doing them + chin ups + neutral grip pullups. Eventually started doing them weighted. Now they're ez

    Because you've been training for less than 5 months. Just do pull downs to build up a base

      I also could never do pull ups. Started using a chair to help 2 weeks ago and with that I can now do a few good form reps.

      As an alternative, do counterweighted pullups if you have a chain gym membership

      The scapula is a bone. You need to train the muscles that control it in the direction youre lacking movement/control

          has the problem of his shoulder rotating inwards, training the subscap further would be bad because its primary role is internal rotation

        Man face pulls feel great.

        why are you so fucking fat

        I like eating too much. Currently I just do assisted pull ups as my warm up/first movement and it has been helping. I will cut when I feel like it.

    I prefer chin ups tbh
    I'm sure pull ups are the superior exercise though

      They're the same exact chins incorporate the biceps, which is why you can do more of them. Exercises that incorporate more muscle mass > exercises that incorporate less muscle mass.

        >they are the same except they're not

        They're not the same. pull ups have more lat activation than chin ups. chin ups have more bicep activation than pull ups

          No they don´t you dumb cunt. The lat activation is the exact same. The only that changes is bicep activation. I´m not even that guy you´re replying to but fucking hell this is basic knowledge.

            Are you fucking simple? If you're lifting the same amount, but you're biceps aren't taking as much of the weight, you're other muscles(lats) have to handle more weight in comparison. Have you tried using your brain to think about this for 2 seconds?

              That's why you do more chin ups than pull ups and amount your lats worked equals out, holy fucking moronbrain kys

    How do pull ups relate to other lifts? Currently I'm at 0. Should I row and ohp body weight before attempting? Lose more fat?

      Do rows and negatives, yes.

      Negatives where you hold the top for at least 5 seconds. If you do that a few times a week, I can guarantee you'll be able to do pullups quickly unless you weigh 300 lbs.

    They are hard lol. But I think getting better at doing chin-ups/pull-ups was the most rewarding experience as I got stronger. It’s 100% worth it.

    Pull ups is a movement you get better at the more you do it. So do it before and after each workout.

    don't be fat, or use an assisted pullup machine/bands to build strength up until you can do them properly

    I can do 15 pull ups without stopping. Is that good?

    • 2 months ago
      Anonymous

      I mean I've seen little kids do 10 or so, depends on if you're doing them with full ROM and how much you weigh.
      If you're doing half reps and you're a twink it's not that impressive, otherwise 15 is very good

    Because literally nothing in normal decadent sedentary life uses your lats so they're atrophied to basically nothing. Start with the lat pulldown machine, grip as wide as the bar allows, and do that until you can do your bodyweight, then switch to regular pullups.

    just do grease the groose daily until you can do 20 of them
    add 1 or two days where you work up to 5x5 for a specifc weight
    10kg
    20kg
    30kg
    40kg
    rep is like 3x3, 3x4, 3x5,3x6
    4x3,4x4,4x5
    5x3,5x4,5x5
    add 10kg start at 3x3 again

    powershitting doesn't develop rotational muscles needed for pull ups.
