12x8 1x4+25lb then 5 reps on rings. Well not actually rings, I took a pair of D rings off a cable machine, and wrapped the chains around a pull up bar. Basically the same, just wanted to see if they felt any different. Don't think im ready for the 25lb plate, will probably get up to 15 or so in a set before I start using one. 360 done so far this week, feels good man.

Rings are not *harder* than regular pullups on the major muscle groups involved, but they require a period of adjustment while those balancing muscles strengthen up. It's not that you need that much strength in those muscles, it's more that if you do not do full body exercises, plyometrics, etc.., and are big into isolation, you can end up with a big imbalance (which also goes a long way towards explaining why some guys who looked yoked seem to move so awkwardly.)

A 25 lb plate is a lot to put on all at once. I would suggest the 15, then go up from there. You will feel a bit like a pussy when there are guys pulling up with 45 lbs + strapped, but like many of these exercises, it's a matter of getting your body to acclimatize. There is, of course, a plateau, no matter what you do. Otherwise, there would be a lot of monstrously strong people.

Anyway, rest day today, but I cranked out 125 yesterday:

10481 + 125 = 10606.

Awesome for us to be at over 10K, given how few members are actually doing this. (Where are guys like Nils and Neo who are supposedly yoked up and super strong?)

BTW, I weigh just over 175 lbs right now, and I could lose those spare tire, so most guys should be able to do my output.

Yeah...I've had to drop weighted pullups for now since I've switched to wide-grip and gained weight. I can do em just fine with a normal grip, but I realized my biceps might be overdeveloped and my lats way underdeveloped...so it's wide grip for now!!

Anyways, +30 this morning =

10636!

I have only 2 more days this week, before I go to a family reunion and probably won't be staying in a place with a gym with a decent pullup station, but I'll try my best.

Did 5x9, didn't feel like doing too many today. Adding 1 rep a week is getting hard.

5x9 was surprisingly easy. Only took me like 15 minutes.

Gonna progressively overload weighted pull ups. Keep rep range the same, but just add 1.25kg plates. I figure thats how I increase squats, should work the same for pull ups. Means my numbers are gonna stay low though. I reckon I'll be doing reps with a 20kg plate by the end of the month.
