>>35601181 op here and same. I would feel like a true sir if I could do the same amount of pull ups in a set. they take a much longer time to progess compared to pushups too I've noticed. and fuck dips, they hurt my shoulders.
So i'm fat.... I weigh 230 i'm 6'0 tall. I don't currently have money for the gym but I do have an old pullup bar and a treadmill in the basement. I have been walking on it for about an hour 5 days a week and my diet is in tact (i'm prescribed adderall so I barely eat more than a chicken breast a day with a glass of milk). My question is how can I begin to progress in pullups, as I currently can't even do 1?
I used to be able to do like 8 when I was in shape in high school. I've read to try to do negatives (only go down), however I can only do like 3 of these before my form is so terrible that i'm sure there is no benefit to flailing around while I lower myself.....thanks bros for any pointers
>>35602270 >I have been walking on it for about an hour 5 days a week and my diet is in tact (i'm prescribed adderall so I barely eat more than a chicken breast a day with a glass of milk) first off calculate your macros and eat as much as you need to. keep walking and lose it without starving yourself. if you're on addies this shouldn't be too hard. you'll get lose skin if you starve yourself. worry about the pull ups when you've lost the fat man. I was at your weight last year, down to 160. what I did was just walk walk walk walk. 15 miles a day sometimes.
>>35601553 Damn nice. I'm kinda torn between going for 30 reps in a row on pullups or doing weighted pullups. Tryina get to that +100lbs for 5 reps pullup, but also wanna be able to hit 30+ in a row... Guess I could alternate heavy and light days.
thanks for the advice. I don't know how accurate my scale is, it says I weigh 230 but in clothes I don't look fat, just a little chubby. I have a small beer gut. I haven't been counting calories (which is stupid ik) but as long as I continue to lose weight i'm going to stick with it. I have been eating only 1 big meal a day, chicken breast, glass of milk, and a cup of greek yogurt. Its hard for me to eat a lot because of my adderall, I ordered some protein and fiber from ON so that will help me get more calories in I was thinking of drinking 2 protein shakes a day which would be an extra 50 g protein and 300 cals. Any advice for my diet, basically i'm just trying to get as much protein as possible? Also how much weight would I have to lose say per week to start getting loose skin? I really don't want loose skin... I know every persons body is different and a healthy weight loss is about 2 pounds per week but does anyone have any experience with how much weight loss is too much too fast? Also I have a bench press but only have the bar (45 pounds) and then 80 pounds of weight with it, what can I be doing with that?
>>35601130 With pushups you're moving only about 60% of your bodyweight at best With pullups, not only are you doing a movement for a muscle group that most people don't really give any attention too, but you're moving about 95% of your bodyweight.
