Claire L Pull-ups and Dips  Tribe

Contributorsilver Claire L Pull ups are my new goal, I'm a complete wimp with these things argh! Great tips here thanks :-D


Ahh yes very helpful.. I do weights already so just need to work on the machine and keep trying. Thanks for the support! :-)


Slow negatives helped a lot. Get the chin over the bar, hold for as long as you can and then go down as slowly as you can.

Claire L encouraged this.


Thanks Keith, I can now manage two together but have to rest and do it in twos, progress at least :-D

Shandel F Pull-ups and Dips  Tribe

Contributorbronze Shandel F Pull-ups are so hard!


Yeah initially they may be...but with practice & consistency you can conquer them. A year & a half ago i could barely manage 2 pull-ups...but today i can do around 100 in a session. So don't give up even if you feel like to...keep workin on it....n thou shalt be the conquerer. For me, its my favourite exercise.

Shandel F encouraged this.


Thanks for the encouragement Vikas ! I'm tryn!!!! I have to get ready for the hard charge! Girls already don't have upper body strength. What exercises did you do?


You just have to go with a schedule...without a schedule you won't achieve much. I did it this way....everyday i decided how many reps i m gonna do...n in how many sets (usually 5 sets)....lets say i on some day did 40 it will be 5 sets of 8 reps...with some 60-120 seconds rest between the sets...initially u'll have to have more rest, but as u grow stronger shorten the rest period. To help you assist you can download some apps (for push-ups, pull-ups, squats & sit-ups) on your phone n seek its help to draw a schedule. Wish u good luck..!!! :)

Ramon F Pull-ups and Dips  Tribe

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...

Jack A Pull-ups and Dips  Tribe

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....

Randy B Pull-ups and Dips  Tribe

Contributorbronze 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.
