How does [someone] prepare to do 110 pull ups in a row Start by recognizing this as an extreme goal. I bet the people achieving >75 pull-ups got there by doing gymnastics or bar calisthenics for years. Coming even close to this number of pull-ups in one set is such a rare skill that you shouldn't ask anyone who hasn't done it. (Elite training is so ...

You could keep your bodyweight mass down, lose fat if you have any, and do several lat exercises such as landmine rows with t bar, or lat bars, one armed rows, etc. Use an endurance type rep scheme(15-20). Working your forearm strength and grip as well as core and biceps to some degree with additional training. Try adding weight here and there but focus more ...

I don't see why you would generate swing during the hang, so I have to assume that you start the hang with some swing. In that case, just make sure you don't release your feet from the platform until you've ensured that your body is at equilibrium. In order to stop rotation, you're going to have to make an effort to counter the rotation. Hanging from one arm ...

If we're being strict about it, any time you come off the bar it's the end of that pull-up set. But for training purposes, of course those reps still count and their proximity should be recorded somehow. So how you count it is up to your own preferences. Personally I record things like this in my training log as 5+1+1 or something like 5, (micro-pause) 2. If ...

If it's literally only a few seconds, I'd count it as one set, but probably still strive for being able to do them without the rest. However if you begin pushing it up to 10 seconds or more, then you're getting in to rest-pause training, which is a technique where you effectively extend a set beyond failure by taking a very short rest, performing more reps, ...

One benefit of rings is that if you get a strap that can have multiple attachments points (I use a rogue strap looped upward and clipped to itself mid-way to capture the first pair of rings before continuing down again to capture more rings) so that the remainder goes back down even lower), you can have multiple pairs of rings along the length so that there ...

A spinning bar will be much harder to grip, this is why you will often see tourist scams that say "Hang 100 seconds for 100$" and will cost 5$ to attempt. Normally hanging for 100 seconds is fairly trivial for someone who is in shape. Rotating bars make it impossible to use false grip or regrip while also making it significantly harder to just hang ...

The function of all muscles depends upon the relative positions of the bones that they control. Most anatomy references analyse muscle movement from standard anatomical position, and hence fail document the full breadth of movement that some muscles can affect. And this is particularly true of the shoulder girdle, since it is comprised of a shallow ball-and-...

Don't. If you can do 100 pullups, unless you're doing it to prove a point or show off, training to do 110 is a huge waste of time, because the majority of your time is spent slowly reaching your limit, at which point gains can be made. Instead, make the exercise harder until you're reaching your limit at, say, ten reps. For pullups, perhaps make moves ...

So, it says that chin-up is a very effective biceps exercise since it forces you to barbell curl with you weight. I wouldn't read it like that. The author you quote stated: More weight is always better for gaining muscle. I think this claim is dubious, but it's also not claiming that a chin-up is equivalent to bicep curling your whole bodyweight, merely ...

Perhaps the most obvious sign of over-training is a reduction in performance. Whether it be strength, speed, or endurance, we are unlikely to be able to maintain the level of our previous performances. Over-training further presents itself in the form of general fatigue, weakness, elevated heart and/or breathing rates, poor quality sleep, and poor motivation....

Because chin ups are not pull ups. A pull up is, as the word says pulling up, straight up. The faster way from point A to point B is a straight line most of the time. And a pull up is just that a straight line, up and down. The chin up feels like 4 different motions because it is, a chin up due to wrist position can't be done in a straight line without ...

People who can only do a small number of pull-ups in a set should focus on doing as many sets as possible of one-half their maximum reps. In this case, that means (2 reps / 2) = 1 rep per set. Take a good minute or two between sets to rest, walk around, and gently shake out your arms. Try to accumulate as many sets as possible with good full pull-up form. It'...

It's no surprise that CrossFit would utilize kipping pullups in their program, as they also do likewise with athletic exercises like Olympic lifts and even some Olympic rings programming too. Besides being a somewhat more "athletic" movement (compared to strict pullups), kipping pullups also have the advantage of being able to recruit more lats in ...
