    i started out aiming for 300; doing a set of 5 every 30 seconds. but after a while i needed more than 30 seconds rest. i'm going to try again in 2 weeks, we'll see how sore i am tomorrow.

    use a weight assisted machine and gradually lower the amount of assistance? or just do them more often.

    That's what I do. I use the assisted machine and it helps. it's how i'm able to do dips now.

    i can do dips, just not much pull ups. i prefer being a bitch and using underhand grip to hit the biceps, which is easier

    do kipping pull ups ... they help with normal pull up strength.


    did 100 kipping pullups last night, it was exhausting

    The first step is to make a separate thread about it.

    This is like saying do quarter squats, because it will help you get a bigger squat.

    no, it's not

    kipping pull ups will develop many of the same muscles used in regular pull ups

    be quiet ... if crossfit does it, it must be useless in any way towards getting stronger

    Quarter Squats won't? You're to quick to judge.

    Its the same thing. I see that you think I'm only hating on crossfit right now but If you can only do a kipping pull up rather than a regular pullup then do it. If you are doing kipping pull ups for cardio, then do it.

    If you do a quarter squat you will still fire all the muscles of an ATG squat yet you are only getting 1/4 of the benefit. Using momentum in a pull up takes away the full benefit. Not to be cocky or prove anything but just from experience Ive never done a kipping pull up in my life and I did 34 straight about a month ago, my genetics are average at best. Now you see why I am against them for pullup progression.
