How many pull-ups/push-ups did you do today? - Page 2

post #16 of 46
My lovely, and chronic, neck injury is back again with a vengeance. Sick of not working out for a month, I went to the workout station at my condo and was very suprised to knock out 34 pull-ups (12X, 12X and 10X). Haven't done a single push up as it puts on a strain on your neck muscles to stablize your head.

Pull-ups = strength that doen't go away.

It's going to be 28 push ups every 20 minutes today (oh no).

I don't seem to be adding muscle mass by doing pull-ups every other day. I think a large portion of the problem is I'm not actually straining my muscles that much. Should I do two days on-one day off to increase the incentive of my muscles to repair and enlarge?

/\ Try the Evil Russian program for 2 weeks. I'm seeing noticeable advancements in very short time. Try it in conjunction with Pullups/Chinups.

Download Snaptimer to count down until it's time to do more reps

Do you already have decent muscle mass?

I find body weight stuff add to muscle density in the arms rather than size. For the back, it adds thickness and width. I used to do a lot of pull-ups and work on the monkey bars. My back is really wide at the top and thick too. I don't dead lift, nor do I row often. I attribute this to pull-ups/ chin-ups and all its varieties.

Arms respond best to hammer curls where you can really load up the weights.

Did 6 sets of 5 pull-ups and 3 sets of 20 knuckle-ups.

Only strength training for the week, figured a week of rest would do me good... thinking that I'd come back energized. Turns out it didn't. frown.gif

30 pull ups and 30 pushups were incorporated into my longer gym routine, 50 pushup set before bed.

Did 20 sets of:

2 pull-ups
4 knuckle-ups
6 bw squats

in 20 minutes. Guess that break last week really helped out. Felt like I had heaps of energy today.

Push ups and chinups are part of a fitness test my PT goes through with his clients every once in a while, did that today. 95 pushups and 63 pullups (3 sets, 30 seconds rest in between). Bunch of other stuff in between the two of them though. And did 50 pushups after I woke up this morning so 145 to now, probably go for 55 before I hit the hay for an even 200.

you did 63 pullups in three consecutive sets? Impressive.

Something like 30-20-13. I do about 50 of them every day so that helps, same with dips, did I think 57 of those after as part of the same test.

EDIT: Actually I just realized I said pullups when I meant chinups. So no, I didn't.

I believe I posted this elsewhere, but it deserves another look

How hard are clapping pushups? I can do a lot of regular pushups (typically do 10x10) but never tried clapping.
