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.

I'd treat it like progressing any other compound movement, a 5x5 template might work well.

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.

Definitely total weigh

>>35676681
may as well swap to chin up grip, that'll make your "pull up" a lot heavier

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
>>
>>35676681
any reasonable program out there will do, use the simplest progressions like texas method as long as you can
>>
>>35676681
Once upon a time I did 5/3/1 for pull-ups, using my weight + plates for the calculations. Worked okay.

My max was only two plates but I was a skinny twink.

>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?
