    Absolute garbage guides.
    They're obsessed with full ROM when all you should do to get good at them is partials at the top. Just do partials everyday, dont listen to muh deadhang morons, they're twigs.
    I went from not being able to do more than 5 to 3 sets of 8 in less than a month.
    That's the whole solution, doing progressive overload with ROM instead of resistance.

          what's your height and bodyweight bro

          >relatively
          yeah. i was an actual twig back in highschool, never did anything physical and could still do like 12 full pull ups. then i became fat and now working out for 8 months and still can barely do like 4.

          >actual twig
          what was your height and bodyweight bro

          Relative strength transcends size. People prefer cars with good gas mileage. Investors prefer stocks with good roi.

          If you were smaller back then, you still had more strength/lb. So your body was more efficient. Now you're heavier and your body's strength efficiency has gone down.
          There is a sweetspot with gaining muscle that would have put you from 12 to 24 pull ups. But you gained too much muscle and fat and now you can only do 4.
          So obviously being a twink forever isn't the answer, but more people should aim for the muscle mass sweet spot that puts their relative strength and body efficiency closer to max

          this is correct. i used to be 115 lbs @ 5'3 and could do 8 pullups. now i'm 140lbs @ 5'3 and can do 15 pullups. before i'd struggle to do 3x8, now i can do 3x10 at the end of my workout

                You still need to actually use your body and preferably practice the movement pattern. I could do ~9 pullups in high school at 5'11" 56 kg, but then couldn't even do 1 after years of being very sedentary at 50 kg.

        You're fricking moronic. Partials are most effective when the muscle is in the stretched position, which is at the bottom. Just think about how you would do partials on a lat pulldown.

        As low as you can go without sacrificing reps

        You're fricking moronic. You heard about stretched position being "most effective" from some gay ass youtuber, but missed the part when he referred to hypertrophy, not getting stronger in a completely different phase of a movement. The sticking points of a pull up occur midway and near the top, of course doing partials and pauses in those regions is good.

        >yeah bro spend 8 hours greasing the groove with full ROM
        Dumb homosexual, my pull ups are full rom and I trained them by doing halfies.
        The workout goes like this

        3x8 full ROM supinated/neutral grip
        3x8 wide grip partials
        3x12 chin up partials

        That's how you stimulate your back when you can do less than 6 pull ups.

        I forgot to say, that partials depend on your weak point
        i.e: you struggle to finish the rep, or you struggle out of the bottom

          depending on that you change your partials' ROM.

          It's really not different from isometric holds but more engaging and I've found to be more effective because I'm actually working on pulling through that weak point over and over

      Thinking like this is very narrow minded, and inefficient. Pull up is a compound movement utilizing your body as a unit, so simple but so effective, obsessing with form is the reason you can get strong with it.

        The key takeaway of what I said is doing progressive overload with ROM.
        I also havent said that partials are meant to fit your sticking point, in my case was the upper range of motion, as my lats were strong enough but when the upper back muscle had to take over, I always got stuck, so partials are like an isolation lift for your weak positions

        • 2 months ago
          Anonymous

          I didnt clarify because for 90% of people, the sticking point is the same.
          Only skinny people have an upper back that can keep up with the lats "naturally" (it's just being light)

          >progressively increase ROM

          Shit and unscientific take. By doing this you’ll just up your numbers and get an ego boost, but the actual studies show that the best way to build strength and hypertrophy is mechanical tension in the stretched position of the muscle. Which happens at the bottom of full ROM pull ups.
          If you can’t do a pull up, the best way would be to do really slow and control eccentrics until you reach dead hang and repeat. Not partial ROM of the upper part of the lift.

          Put it like this : do you want to actually progress or just brag on IST about your pull ups numbers ?

      Doing partials is the best way to get better. Do sets of partials:
      1) at the bottom (i.e. scapula pull-ups)
      2) at the top
      3) at the middle (probably the hardest to isolate as there's no preferable starting position)

      These make doing full ROM pullups easier. What's so hard to understand?

          I think if we did a study It'll show that the best aesthetically pleasing physique will be at a person's peak relative strength.

          That's why calisthenics athletes are so aesthetically pleasing, they're not huge, but not small either, lean and insanely strong for their bodyweight. That should be the goal we all strive for

          stupid. the problem is being fat not having too much muscle.
          and if you are 250 lbs of muscle and can only do 8 you are still functionally stronger in every way than some weak twerp who convinces himself he is better because he can do 15 chins. who cares. they don't matter
          strength is your ability to move your body, but moreso, to move things outside your body. relative strength means nothing for that second item.

      Honestly this. See so many people doing 15 half-reps when really they could do a few solid full ROM sets of 4-5 and improve much faster. But for some reason normies seem obsessed with high reps for this exercise when most people just aren’t there yet.

                Looks fine. Everything fits well which is the most important thing. A goofy sock design is perfectly fine, I just think thin black socks are formal dress socks and they look weird mixed with athletic clothes. Like wearing shorts with a shirt and tie or wearing smart shoes with shorts. I think it's possible to make it work though if everything else goes with it.

                what kind of boomer homosexual wears a watch in the age of sail foams anyways? Are you pretending you don’t have your phone with you? The only people who wear watches are people working in labs or places they can’t bring a phone (don’t try to lie, everyone knows you carry your phone regularly). I wear a cheap citizen with nato band when in a situation I can’t use a phone.

      Damn. Impressive. I can see your arms are doing miost of that work, too, which nakes it even crazier.

      Your back is narrow. If youre doing this for physique purposes, try chinups (palms supinated) and make sure to get a good stretch at the bottom - dont lose tension or go dead hang, but fully extend at the bottom. That might help activate the lats to do some of the pulling.

      But impressive.

Just because a movement was easy for you at the start doesn't mean it's the same for everyone. The thing that worked for me was the lever pulldown machine. Gradually worked up to slightly over bodyweight on that and voila, pullups

      Try varying the weight and reps a bit. Have some sessions where you do less reps with a bit more weight, and some where you do more reps with less weight. Try "greasing the groove", where you do smaller sets (say 2-3 reps) but more of them, spaced out through the day; you can get way more total volume this way. Try using partial reps to specifically train the part of the movement that is hardest for you (for most people this is the top, actually getting the bar below your chin and ideally to your chest).

        I second this. Train it like a main strength lift, not an endurance bullshit exhaustion lift.

        Slowly, over time icnrease volume. But no kipping and stop going to failure. That just reduces the overall volume you need to do. Also, be well rested between each set. Like a full 3-5 minutes to recharget ATP.

    pull ups are the biggest meme for weak homosexuals, arguably only second to SS. A girl can train to do 5 pull ups in 6 months. The same girl who benches 95 lb and deadlifts 255 lb.

Push exercises seem much more natural to lat exercises. I really should be asking these questions over at r/fitness as they give real replies.

    contrary to what IST will tell you, most people can absolutely not do a pullup on their first day in the gym unless they're already athletic. it's rather humbling having to do assisted and negative reps, so many just don't bother

    Is there even any reason to do pull-ups over chin-ups if chins activate the lats all the same?

      I think chins activate the lats more because of the rotated humerus - it pulls more on where the lats insert so there is more of a stretch at the bottoms. The diff is slight, but I think it makes a difference.

        so for what reasons should I do pull-ups then if I’m a DYEL? I can do a few but I feel like the form is lacking and I’m not sure if there’s any reason to do them if I’m too weak to get enough volume/ROM from doing them

      I like doing ring pullups and neutral-grip pullups, but don't really do bar chinups because I find the top position uncomfortable. I think pullups probably carry over more directly to real-world activities like climbing. That's it for me, though.

      5*10 is actually pretty difficult for pullups depending on rest time. It means you can probably do 18-20 in a single set. I would say when you can do 10 very clean pullups do some days where you do low reps higher weight and than other days where you just go high reps. I can do 25 bw and 2 with 40kg added at 80 kg btw.

    • 2 months ago

      id say once you reach 15 reps of BW. i think thats when i started adding weight and went straight to like +10 kg for few reps. that was like 10 years ago tho so i dont really remember. 5x10 with short rest periods would be overkill imo

          1 - 3 times a week depending on your fitness level like any other exercise. And you don't have to do those exact numbers, just fewer reps = more sets. I also do them from absolute deadhang because I consider the initial scapular retraction part of the lift.

          And don't have a nice day on the first sets. Instead of doing 6,5,3,2,2 with many ugly reps, do 5x4 and last set amrap. You will progress faster and with greater confidence.

    Are you supposed to pull yourself up from a full deadhang?

    • 2 months ago
      Anonymous

      Yes. IMO ideal pullup form is starting each rep from a full deadhang, touching your chest to the bar at the top, and keeping your legs and core in a fixed position throughout the rep (no squirming or kicking the legs up for momentum).

      I can rep out 10 of these for 2-3 sets jaw over the bar. But i cant get the chest to touch the bar, im incredibly weak in that end position. How to train it?

      Partial reps. Start at the top with your chest touching the bar, lower down til your nose is at bar height, then pull up from there and repeat. If that is too hard you can use any of the normal progression tools (negatives, band assistance). Strength is to some degree specific to the range of motion in which you train it.

              Makes sense. I don't do bar chinups, but doing preacher curls, or standing barbell curls around my 5RM made my elbows hurt for days. If you don't want to do pronated-grip pullups, you could try ring pullups or neutral-grip pullups?

    Weak bullshit. I'm over 6ft and 210lbs, I can do 5 or 6 pullups with a 20lb weight. I couldn't even do half a rep for months at first, you just have to grind out negatives and get stronger through rows and lat pulldowns. It took me well over a year to get here, but just saying you can't ever do pullups because you're 'too muscular' is absolute rubbish.

    Where's everyone's point of failure? Logically the bottom should be the hardest part but thats never where I fail. I always fail near the top, just an inch or two before getting my chin over the bar. For reference I can do 20 reps from a dead hang without weight, 5 reps with 80lbs added

    • 2 months ago

      at the bottom the only point of failure is grip
      from deadhang most of the motion is actually a disguised version of swinging your legs and requires not much effort
      if you see ppl give up at the bottom is cos they dont have the balls to try for another rep

      this was my case until I started doing this

      Absolute garbage guides.
      They're obsessed with full ROM when all you should do to get good at them is partials at the top. Just do partials everyday, dont listen to muh deadhang morons, they're twigs.
      I went from not being able to do more than 5 to 3 sets of 8 in less than a month.
      That's the whole solution, doing progressive overload with ROM instead of resistance.

      It happens because the lats are stronger than the upper back muscles

      Is it just after your arms break even? See

      https://i.imgur.com/0NqLjoz.jpg

      I used to struggle with pull ups and chin ups, but figured out how to max out.
      I used to be a zogbot marine, the physical fitness test (pft) was based on pull ups/chin ups, 3 mile run, and sit ups, max score was 300 and reps were;
      >20 dead hang pull up/chin up
      >18 min 3 mile
      >100 sit ups in 2 min
      Every pull up was worth 5 points and I was stuck at 10 reps but maxing everything else out. I was pissed I couldn’t get the 300 points on the pft and kept getting sent to remedial pt every saturday.
      I realized that I kept getting stuck just below the point where my arms bend, that was my sticking point. I started working preacher bench really heavy, got up to one pl8 on the curl bar after a while. Pull ups shot up to like 30 reps. I was easily knocking out multiple sets of 10 with a 75lbs Alice pack on.
      I still, to this day, over 15 years later can rep out 30 wide grip dead hangs because of the preacher bench.
      So my advice to pull uplets would be to train your arms.

    Its not even about fat its about bodyweight.
    You only use lats and a little bit of your arms to lift up the rest of your body up basically.

    Say you have 100kg muscle in your legs hypothetically (obvious exaggeration), you couldn't make use of them but it isn't fat.

    As a beginner you cant do them then you learn how to do them and then you cant do them again the more advanced you get and the more muscle you have (unless you get stuck at a low bodyweight)

          its bullshit. people in the sub 70kg category are pretty much capped at +100kg, 70 to 80 +110kg seems to be the top. above 90 kg there are people pulling +115kg and above. there is a severe diminishing compared to other lifts but the muscles still help you.

    Anyone looking to increase their pullup numbers: grease the groove.
    I've been doing pullups for years, but I would always gas out at 10-12 (first set, full ROM). I started doing 5 pullups constantly throughout the day. I can now consistently hit 15-17 pullups on my first set after using this method for 3 months.

        When I grease the groove, I aim for a set every 45-75 minutes, for most of the day, up to 5-6 days a week. /Way/ more volume than just doing 3-5 max rep sets 3 days a week.
