    Yep, that's what I do. Honestly when people say then can do a pullup I call bullshit. I only know 1 person that can do a perfect form full range of motion pullup. Which is why i use bands.

    Got my dl up to 140 kg (309 lb) * 3, hope to hit 150 soon. But I am abit worried about the shoulders when doing dl´s. Are you supposed to relaxe them, or slightly pull back the shoulder blades?

    bench seriously sucks (75 kg * 3, pathetic), and saddly all those pretty heavy sets on the pectoral fly machine doesnt contribute at all. Squats suck aswell...

    I've done 140kg when i was 180lb, so i would think i could hit 160+ now as my 5RM has gone up about 20kg. I've only just started DL again, i realise now that my build suits it much more than squatting.


    Nice find, probably the only gym i havent heard of.

    Upload a video of your pullup. Most people do one OK one, then the rest that follow the scapula is not retracted, chest sinks, elbows are not out properly, the chest never hits the bar, and descent isn't controlled.

    LOL was super bummed on my weighted PU/CU/dip numbers until reading the past two pages and realizing I gained a bunch of weight which makes lifting heavier. Feel hyped about plating up to BW+95 on dips yesterday. :slayer:

    I call bullshit. I'm doing BW+35 pullup and BW+45 chinup for reps and I'm not even that strong.

    Good enough, sure. But not perfect. It's not a straight bar, shoulders are not back and down the whole movement and she curls herself in the end to finish.

    Coldsnap is asking for a picture-perfect pullup for every rep which no one ever does.

    Here's a thought:
    You can try for 100% perfection on form, but you suffer greatly at strength output and gains. need to find a happy medium.

    Yea, but some/most are cringe worthy. Not touching your chest to the bar, not maintaining external rotation, and keeping your head up are like not squatting bellow parallel imo
