>beginner workout
>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?
>>
>>35709279
Like all scooby workout plans
>>
>>35709296

Like SS
Like Reg Park
>>
>>35709279
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.
>>
we did sets of pull ups in gym class

from elementary school to middle/junior high to high school

what happened that this is such an issue
>>
Lat pulldown machine.

Do pullups for reps like you were 50 lbs lighter.
>>
>>35709279
uuuuuuuuugh, unless you start fat as fuck, you can always do at least 3 to 5.
Source: personal experience, and I wasn't even that skinny.
>>
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.
>>
>>35709279
Just do them to failure. It took me just a few months to get from 1 pull up to 14 following Scooby's routine
>>
>>35709432

This, I started being a skinny fat bitch and still could do 2-3, now I can do at least 9 (still look like shit tho, less shittier but shit is shit)
>>

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.

What do you look like?

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. The experts aren't fucking retarded, OP, they're just not accounting for the fact that you apparently are.

thanks bro

This is how I lookd before

I'm doing some clean slow bulk at the moment + 2-3 months then will start cutting.
>>
>>35709707
whyd you shave the hair on your torso
>>
>>35709719

Dunno, but still my body hair grow really really fast so I don't really mind.
>>
>>35709719
To feel like a sexy little slut. Why do you shave yours?
>>
>>35709279
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
>>
>>35709742
I don't
