Is there a recommended strength progression type program for weighted pull ups?
Most I've done is 3 plates (pictured) for a single.
My back is big/wide enough and instead of wining it, I'd like to focus on getting bigger numbers now; but idk what kind of programming is optimal for a lift like weighted pull ups.
Also, do you just go by the added weight? or your total weight + the added weight? etc.
Nice work breh.
>1 plate for 5 at 240 here.
Obviously you'd know a bit more about this than me but doing paused sets really seemed to help. Hanging at the bottom, and pausing at the top holding for a few seconds each rep with the chest to the bar.
Using pull up globes is top tier as well.
I was thinking that, but the issue comes with what weight to go by.
If I go by body weight + added weight versus added weight, the percentage increase changes drastically.
80% of 135 is +108
but if you take my body weight 165 and add 135 = 300
80% of 300 = 240; take off my body weight of 165 = +75 lbs
(though squat programs don't take your body weight into account); so I'm just confused overall
I'll try the pauses and see how it goes. Old vid (about 2 years old) but this is pretty much my pull up form
That was 2 weeks before I got hit by a fucking bus on my bicycle (side swiped, point of contact was my left shoulder)
Fucked my weighted pull ups for a long time; and had to work my way back up from almost just one plate.
Posted a video a couple posts up, lol
I just like the pic from the OP, lol. I have a home gym though, was just a guest at my friend's gym that day. The side grip isn't available to me at home, so I did it there
>squat programs don't take your body weight into account
When I aggressively cut weight my chin ups go up and my squat goes down. Definitely count total body weight.
What other back work are you doing?
