    Pull-ups workout??

    I can't really do a whole hell of a lot of pullups, so I am going to set some goals of being able to do about 30 or so. Being able to do that many will really define my lats. I am fortunate to have a pullup bar at home. Does anyone have a good routine so that it wont conflict with my regular lifting regimine?

    Wouldn't you place them in the rotation while doing back? I can't do pull-ups worth a **** so I've been doing negatives......seems to be working.....it's kicking my lats in the ass.

    i do wide grip pullups as the very first thing in my back workout.. my workout buddy and i do a total of 50... we do as many sets as it takes to get there.. and we remember how many it took to do, for the next workout we try to do it in less sets..usually takes me 5 sets..

    Try to space it out from your bicep workout. Your bis tend to get a good workout from pullups (either forward or reverse). Or you can do the pull ups as a pre exhaust for the bis.

    you will wanna focus on the quality of the pull ups, not the amount you do, nice slow with a good squeeze at the top...

    i can usually get out about 10 good pulls ups and then i use a 25 lb weight and put it in my belt. i usually will get 3 sets of 6-8 with the 25. do yall think thats a good way or should i just stick to no weight and try to do a bunch?

    I would wait until I can do 15 using perfect form and able to pull up all the way to the chest before adding weight. You can injur your shoulder by adding weight before your body is ready for it.
