comment 2 workouts a day, supplementation
By "workouts" you mean some kind of hypertrophy or strength training I guess?

comment Does muscle strength (rather than muscle mass) also depend on food consumption?
Very good answer! Would be great if you could also elaborate on food affects the neural factors of strength.

comment Position of weight during weighted pull ups
"If you start adding external weight to other exercises, you want to try and keep the weight in line with the motion of the limbs." Could you elaborate a bit on that? Doesn't it rather apply to open kinetic chain exercises?

This is not an answer to OP's question, is it?

comment Why not just increase the number of sets?
... Or you use bodyweight exercises.

comment Why not just increase the number of sets?
No that's not what I meant :) I meant you should aim for sets of equal number of reps. Once you've reached 5 or so sets, you should increase intensity, meaning weights.

Consider buying a pair of gymnastic rings or a pull-up bar. There are a ton of bodyweight exercises that are easily scalable and as effective for building muscle mass as training with weights.

comment Why not just increase the number of sets?
Ok, but that doesnt contradict with anything i stated, does it? Being able to perform x reps in a single set does not imply you can do arbitrary many of those sets consecutively, especially if your breaks are short. Chose the number of reps per set such that each set has the same number of reps and you finish the last one short of failure.

comment What happens if I substitute different exercises for my warm-up sets?
@Lego Stormtroopr: if I understand you correctly, you would like to utilize your squat warm up as some sort of skill or strength work for the core etc?

@Freakyuser: it's the maximum weight you are able to do 5 reps with.

comment Bodyweight inverted row - where do the elbows go?
Why do you think hitting the lats is "the point of the exercise"?
