LA guy, I actually loathe situps, and they're not easy to do when I don't have an annoyed girlfriend handy to stand on my feet. What ab exercises do you recommend?

Crunches on a stability ball are a much better core workout than regular sit-ups. Reverse crunches are pretty good for abs as well.

never attempted but i will probably start working those in soon, a few guys do them but basically just swing themselves up, no upper body strength full cheat mode

Now it's 4 sets of 25 at the bare minimum. On a good day I can do 4 sets of 30 but I'm no longer trying to increase. My one set max is probably around 40 or so, underhand I did 50 about three weeks ago. I'm pretty much the pullup king at my gym nobody can touch me but there are some guys who are decent. I do them as a warm up every time I'm in the gym which is about 4x a week, but I haven't been in 8 days due to my NYC trip and being too lazy to go past couple of days.

Are those deadhangs? If so, more power to you. The only people I know who can do those types of numbers that are semi-pro climbers. I max out at 20, but then it'd be excruciating to get to 100 after that, so I don't go past 13 per set. Well, 15 on some brave days (not today, I am just getting ready to go to the gym, and feel tired already.) I expect that my max would go up if I lost 10 lbs of fat, and kept up my routines, but to hit 30, much less 4x30, I'm not sure that would be a realistic goal for me.

Muscle ups are interesting. I can do one, mainly because one of my best friends as a kid was a very good gymnast, and they do them routinely - and he showed me. However, I suspect that most dudes are doing them incorrectly, and probably using their muscles in an inefficient manner.

Was in Germany for a week without access to a decently equipped gym. It was good to get back to my gym for a workout.

Almost all the way down (no lock) and no swing even on the last reps my back is swole as fuck (my ex used to say that all the time). I can do 25 per set even on a bad day and I do various types of pullups each day, I've been doing them for years. My buddy used to do 6 sets of 18 when we'd have contests 7 years ago but it was a joke because he'd always win I could only do 4x12 back then...today I'd destroy him wherever he is.

25327 + 103 (8 sets of 10+ and then 3 additional sets to get to 103) = 25430

I have never had a swole anything. I can do 4x12, but no way I can do 4x20, much less 4x25 or 4x30.

Next week is a "rest week". Maybe I'll try something new.
