    Pull-ups only or does this also include chin ups?

    I personally think that chinups should only count for 1/2, tops. I can crank out 25 chinups in a set without hitting failure. No way I can do that with pullups.

    Well I guess for the sake of keeping the math simple we can just count pull-ups.

    Ha, for the life of me I can't do chin-ups. It just feels like such an unnatural movement to me.

    1317 + 52 = 1369

    Chinups are so much easier. I suppose that it depends on what you are used to though, and your particular body type.

    Just out of curiousity, do you do any compound exercises, or a lot of isolation exercises? That may be the difference.
