Nice work getting pullups in on vacation. I hate travel because I'm not creative enough to get in workouts without a gym proper.

NYR, it might be form related. Do you tend to bounce up and down on your pullups or do you keep control throughout the entire movement?

Good work amigo! Regular pullups have become easy for me, too. I switched it up to wide grip w/ a deadhang...DEFINITELY makes it a lot harder. But you get dem lats that way. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I've discovered that most hotel rooms have well hung doors for the bathroom, you can do pullups on that without a bar super easy. It's not quite the same as a real pullup, but it's a great, almost always available option.

If you've never seen one on a door, here's what it looks like (I just googled to get this, no affil)

Hope that helps!

I used to suck big nuts at pullups, and I still do for that matter, but I am getting much better very quickly ever since I started upping the volume. I used to do them 1x a week after deadlifting - 2 sets pullups to failure, 2 sets chinups to failure with #3+#2 bands assisting me. I topped out at 15/9/8/6 with 2 bands for assistance and stayed at this point for months and months.

Then I started doing them 2x a week when I lift, first session with #3 band assistance and second session unassisted. 2xpullups to failure, 2x chinups to failure with band assistance, 20 total pullup reps and 10 total chinup reps for unassisted. I am now repping the same assisted pullups with less band assistance on one day, and my unassisted numbers have shot up - a month ago my 20 total pullups were a sloppy 5,3,2,2,2,1,2,2,1.... now they are a strict dead hang 9,6,4,1 with a pause + squeeze at the top.

I just started "greasing the groove" too - yesterday I did 3x3 with strict form and a 4sec controlled descent. I am going to make a point to hit at least 20 daily split up into 5 sets of 4. We will see how it goes icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I would recommend band assistance for people having trouble with pullups. The way band tension works, it is stronger at the bottom and weaker at the top meaning you get a nice boost out of the hole but as you ascend, it gets much harder to lockout. Given that I have only ever seen people fail a pullup halfway up and not right out of the hole, this is an excellent way to attack a common sticking point. Obviously, don't rely solely on bands, but if you can add some volume that specifically attacks the weak point you'll probably see a boost in your numbers. Thats what happened IME anyways.

Haven't been here in a LONG time.

I've been slacking on hitting the gym with a PACKED social calendar during the summer. I'd estimate I've done at least 140 pullups, on the conservative side, since my last update.

18084 + 140 = 18224

I'm headed to south central Virginia to visit mom and dad, and there is no gym there. The closest one is nearly 60 miles away in Roanoke. ffffuuuu.gif
