I just did 18. How about you? If I switched my grip to palms back I could have done 10 more.


UPDATE: Ok, that was yesterday, but today fiirst I did 16 in boots, uniform, then did 3 more with a large ruck with 5 gallons of water and some other gear. I think the ruck was 60 pounds, making my effective weight 230. (160 plus 10 pounds uniform/boots plus 60 pound ruck)

This was done for fun, but also because someone asked about it and got my interest up.....I challenge you guys to try it!

not sure, but i can run 5 miles straight in 40 mins and throw up only once.

The average for GD will probably be around .5 with a chair to help.


I did 12 yesterday in the gym.
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 9:40:20 AM EDT
Between 14 and 17 depending on the day. And I'm 65 years old.

I did 9 this morning at the gym. I can lift weights all damn day, but pull ups kill me.

11-12

I can do 5 corncob pullups though
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 9:41:48 AM EDT
did 5 sets of 15 yesterday super setted with dumbbell press
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 9:42:31 AM EDT
I think I got 15 last week. I've got a pullup bar at the house so I do quite a few pullups
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 9:42:45 AM EDT
42 is my best

10 with 90 lbs hanging from a dip belt
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 9:42:59 AM EDT
The last time I tried I got 14, but I weigh about 50 lbs. more than I did when I could do 20+. Pushing weights filled me out a bit. Upper body has always been my (retard) strength and I can max push-ups on the PT test without ever doing any. Always been like that. Running? I have to do a LOT of that to stay in the 90% range for age group.
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 9:43:48 AM EDT
Yeah, 1/2 sounds about right. But what do you want? I weigh 350 pounds!

So thats like 10 regular size people pull ups, right?
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 9:44:10 AM EDT
20 dead hangs pull-ups here. I can do over 30 kipping pull-ups.

I broke my academy record when I was there with 41. Last time I tried to max them out unweighted, I did about 20 or so. I'm a lot heavier now, a lot stronger too, but a lot heavier than I was back then (1999). I was about 165 lbs. when I was able to do 40 plus, I'm now about 200-205.
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 9:44:17 AM EDT
Three the last time I tried.

I dunno, lets see. I'll be right back.........



23 just now. Not bad for a 33 y/o with a messed up hip/elbow/ankle/neck.
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 9:45:08 AM EDT
I can usually eak out 8-10 when I'm this out of shape. Pulls have always been my nemesis though. Something about the mechanics of the move coupled with shoulder problems. Never been able to really grease that groove too well.
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 9:45:09 AM EDT
10-12 easily. I did 15 a couple months back when I was doing them everyday. Wide grip palms away from you.
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 9:47:28 AM EDT
Only around 7.

I am kind of a big guy and even though I have good upper body strength, they are definitely harder for me than someone with a thinner build.
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 9:47:35 AM EDT
Maybe half a dozen.
By then I would need a donut.
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 9:47:55 AM EDT
I did 1 from a dead hang the other day...

But that is an improvment from 6 months ago when i could do none... I have lost about 30 lbs in the past year, need to loos about 20 more.
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 9:50:08 AM EDT
No idea. Probably none. Is it a bad thing that I don't care?

Depends on how badly you want to be liked by a bunch of people on a mostly anonymous internet forum from around the world.......
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 9:57:01 AM EDT
Two , I've just started weight training..
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 9:57:16 AM EDT
7 today, each from full dead hang,steady consistent pull..Not bad for an old guy,but ass is definately kicked from it.

This is GD - round up to the nearest whole number and multiply by the number of Victoria Secret models you currently date.

I just did 6 on the garage door rail.

12-14 dead hang, palms facing away. I envy those that are doing 20+ in one set.

[Last Edit: 2/1/2011 10:24:39 AM EDT by tyman]
42.
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 10:24:17 AM EDT
I'm curious as to the height and weight of you guys doing this.

I can bench, squat, and dead lift a shit ton of weight, I can do cardio until the cows come home, but freaking pull ups just kick my ass.

When I was in HS, I could do 15. Today many kids can't do any, which is illustrates how weak they are.
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 10:25:45 AM EDT
All of them.
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 10:25:52 AM EDT
87 of course
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 10:26:09 AM EDT
30, if in sets of 10. Maybe 12-14 without a break.

Like so....

31 y.o., 183 lbs. Did 21 palms facing me (underhand) dead-hang pullups yesterday; haven't tried to do overhand in a while, but I typically do about 5 less than my max underhand.
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 10:28:20 AM EDT
record was 17.

i never let my abilities drop below the 10 mark

I'm 6'4" 218 lbs, and 40 yrs. old.

I can do about 12. I can do about 15 with palms in.

I tested myself recently and did 6 with 50 lbs. of gear and a rifle hanging off of my chest.

Pullups are my weakest exercise by far, but I do them anyway. I think having long arms makes it harder. I have an 84" reach.

No good, it would still be a fraction.

Link Posted: 2/1/2011 10:31:46 AM EDT
15 with IOTV ammo and rifle slung around me. Not sure how many unencumbered I stop at 25.
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 10:33:57 AM EDT
14 in one set is my max right now.

Link Posted: 2/1/2011 10:39:24 AM EDT
Palms outboard. 21.

37 y/o, 5'11", 214lbs. No longer-so-lean-and-not-so-mean-oldass-Marine.

And please...no body bring up run times.
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 10:42:08 AM EDT
At 6'6" 240 I can't do a single one. I'm a big strong guy, but that's a lot of weight to move that distance from a dead hang.

Much respect for the guy who is 6'4" and doing 6 of them with 50lbs. of gear on.

What this guy said.

I usually do 4-5 sets of 10 twice a week as part of my workout. I only test myself to max on my birthday. Last birthday I did 14. I'm 5'10", weigh 220 and I'm 55.

I like working pullups and overhead pressing together.
Link Posted: 2/1/2011 10:44:46 AM EDT
Hell, I haven't done pull ups since I was in high school.

I'm absolutely positive I can do at least 1. Anything beyond that is sheer speculation.
