Any, 39 for each of Sunday, Monday, and yesterday. So... +117 = 450.
BTW, kipping pullups are no joke. The upper core gets engaged, a lot. They look funny, but just trust me. I thought it was a cheat, and it sort of is, but you do 15 per set, and get up to 60, and it's like "woah" the next day.
Right, because feeling "whoa" the next day is the sign of an effective workout.
If your goal is to effectively train your back/arms, then kipping pullups are a joke, and not dissimilar to using elastic energy in your achilles tendon to bounce through a set of calf raises. If your goal is to do a high capacity of work for the sake doing a lot of work, then have fun with that.
back day today, gonna crank out around 80 pull ups, reverse grip, side to side, wide and narrow and regular grip, 8 sets of 10, as long as your form is right you are all set. best excersice you can ever do as far as your back is concerned.Edited by dacia1300 - 4/30/12 at 11:30am
