    The corrected:

    35169 + 60 = 35229


    I do 5 sets of 10-12 (dependent on grip), with about a 1/2 minute rest between.

    D'oh! I just stumbled across this thread. I do pull ups three times per week. I try to go with whatever my body says is OK to do that day. If I'm feeling good, that's 21 these days. If I'm feeling not so good, I stick to fewer, but never less than 15. Then two to three more sets of fewer than the first set. That's something like 3-4k that I haven't been adding to this thread. I'll try to be more dilligent in the future.

    I have to say that pull ups are a big source of frustration for me. When I was younger I used to do 30/20/15. Now that I'm middle-aged, it takes a lot of effort to even increase by 1 repetition, say from 20 to 21. And when I make the jump I find that I'm sore for about three days afterwards. Getting old sucks, but it's definitely better than the alternative.

    Feel you.

    35519 + 30 + 30 + 30 = 35609

    I'll be getting back to 100+ per workout next week. I do them in 15, 10, 7, over the course of about an hour, in between sets of other things. Clearly, how man sets of 15 and 10 I can get before I have to drop to 7 depends on what I am working that day. I dunno about increasing reps. I think that it's like pushups. You do more, and you can do more - with the ceiling being different for everyone.
