comment Could a thicker pull-up bar explain my inability to do as many pull-ups?
I do have small hands compared to most. I suppose I'll find out if this is the case when I go back to school (where the other bar is) in a month.

This was very enlightening to me. I haven't been doing as many pull-ups because I figured that if I gained strength in curls that it would translate to more pull-ups. Thank you very much.

@DaveLiepmann I can do more for bicep curls, back exercises, chest exercises, and triceps exercises. The new bar is probably two inches in diameter. And going off of what posdef said, it could be my core. I haven't been working it out nearly as much as I have been my arms and back.

Yep, everything's the same in that respect.

I'm distinctly bigger (in terms of muscle), I can lift much more weight, I've been eating really well, my arm veins are more often visible, and I've lost a good amount a fat.

Yes, the diameter. I've gained probably 5 pounds of muscle but at the same time have lost around the same in fat, so no net weight gain.
