thanks guys! Great advice.
I would suggest to do negatives like Jack said or to use resistance bands for assistance as those are a much better way to increase your strength than kipping (since kipping uses momentum). I am not a fan of kipping...

Kipping is a good skill to have but if you want to improve your strict pull ups then you need to stay away from kipping for now. Kipping is more efficiency based rather than strength based. Try some negatives e.g....
I can do three solid pull ups with chin completely over the bar but then after that I slowly lose height.
Hi so i can do multiple pull-ups, but i cannot do them consecutively. For example i do one pull-up, then have to release from the bar before i can do another, although i can do another straight after that. does anyone have any advice on how to do...

Randy B I currently do 3 sets at 8X6X4 on the dips. I use a belt to add weight to the dips, and I do 90X135X160. I have done 180 for 3, but that made me really sore for a few days. That is my goal, to do 180 on the last set for 4 or better.

Albert M Love my weighted vest! 20 lbs. I have a 30 lb concrete filled back pack at home in California, might have to do some walks using both. hmmmm :)
When I wanted to crack pull ups I downloaded an app. Basically you did as many as possible to establish your max in my case it was 5. It then had me do 4, rest 45 seconds, do 4, rest do 4, rest do 5, rest do 4. The next day it was 5,4,5,4,4 with s...
I think this is an excellent idea because it will give women a more realistic point of view on this topic. I think too many women are frustrated because they can "only" do a "few" pull-ups. A few pull-ups for a woman is pretty impressive! Average...
