>pullups for sets
Are these "experts" fucking retarded? Do they really expect weak beginners to not only do ONE pullup, but actually SEVERAL SETS of pullups?
Usually they're accessory lifts and the amount of reps is "to failure" so after you're done with lifting you should to try like hell to get one pull up and then try again as each new "set". Cmon son.
I can only do like one... So, that's exactly what I do. One, struggle trying to get two, just kinda hang there at half ROM for as long as I can... Repeat for 4 "sets".
Losing 30 pounds made this easier (I couldn't even do the one when I first started) but I've got about 20 more to go.
We didn't have pull-up bars at my school outside of the weight racks, so even though the coaches put us through mostly well-programmed and strenuous workouts, we almost never did pull-ups. That's how I could bench 2 plates at 160 but barely do 6 pull-ups.
I could do 2 when I was much lighter in high school.
Now I just do assisted.

I felt pretty low about pull-ups and steered clear of them for awhile. But somewhere along the way, towards the end of highs hill maybe, I was able to do them. I guess I was a late bloomer but now I can bust out 22 dead hang pull-ups
This is how I lookd before
I'm doing some clean slow bulk at the moment + 2-3 months then will start cutting.
Wtf lads its ok. Just use a chair bands or the assisted machine.
Grab chair. Do pull ups with one foot on the chair providing slight assistance. Slide chair farther back every workout until you can do unassisted. It's that simple families

Nigger, you need to start cutting right fucking now.
