    The 20 pull up club! Anyone wanna join?

    In the quest to simplify my workouts and focus on upper body strength, I came across the elite club.

    The 20 pull up club!!!

    Started today lifting half my weight as a pull up x 20 reps.

    Going to gradually getting it to my full weight over the next few weeks.

    Anyone on here wanna get on the 20 pull up club train?

    I'd like to be able to do it but I think it's beyond my capabilities.

    Its not. I can do them now and I have to shoulder 95kgs

    'Walking the Plank.'

    Get a chair walk off it onto the pull up bar(walk the plank) or get a friend to lift you up l, then slowly lower yourself down. Over a few weeks of doing that reverse exercise you will be able to go the other way and pull yourself up.

    You can do 20 pull ups at 95kg Dill?

    Nice one Ant! Proper arms stretched pull ups? Not chin ups?

    There was a time when I thought upper body strength would be useful.

    It isn't!

    The only useful thing in life is big balls, and no amount of exercise is going to give you bigger balls.

    I can do 8. When I go out for a ciggie, there's a pipe framed motorbike shelter for the apartments next door and I sometimes test myself. 8 is all I can manage these days, but it's a consistant 8. Maybe if I wasn't sucking CO and CO2 as I do them? Or maybe take my flipflops off...added weight there.

    There is a bit of technique involved doing pullups. Clenching your 'core' -stomach and glutes (arse), helps. Just in case anyone behind you in the gym get the 'orn, like.

    Strengthening the lats with other exercises (pull downs, rows, etc) should get your tally up a bit more. 20 pullups is a pretty serious challenge, tbh. I can't do more than 12 now, so might have a go at this..

    When I was in my twenties the most pull-ups I could do was 15. But I'm talking about a starting position of hanging down with my arms straight.

    They are much easier to do if you never let your arms get past ninety degrees.
