pullups

  1. Off-Topic Hypertrophy

    Hi, Is it possible to get a good amount of hypertrophy while doing grease the groove? My main goal is to make the muscle bigger. Let's say for something like pullups to make my back bigger. I read some lactic acid is needed for hypertrophy but with grease the groove I always leave some reps...

    Hi! first post here and i hope some of you could help! I am 35 years old, have been training on and off for the last 15 years, now i am based in Tanzania, Africa.

  3. Bodyweight What % of bodyweight is actually lifted during a pull-up?

    I'm trying to calculate percentages of 1RM for a weighted pull-up to figure out what poundage I'm actually pulling. I realize that I'm not lifting my entire bodyweight (e.g., forearms are staying static). Should I worry about a "percent of bodyweight" calculation or am I overthinking it?

  6. Bodyweight Double Reps in 2 Weeks

    I want to keep my question short: I' am training 5/6 times per week for a few months now (mostly strength training). So I can do ~25 pushups, ~10 pullups, ~10 dips and ~10 pistol squads with perfect form in one set. My goal is to double those reps in the next two weeks. (50 pushups, 20...

    Bodyweight Goal Pullups

    Hi all. I cannot do pullups. Never have been able to do it. I didn't have a place to hang from when I was a kid. Maybe someone could argue the point that I didn't look hard enough, which might be true, but I have not done pullups. Squats, pushups, etc. yes, but no pullups. Ever. So, my huge...
