              SU DE 15: Dips: 8 x 4 sets
              Pull-Ups: 3/3/3/. I'm not satisfied with my form in the third set, especially #3, so I am staying with 3x3 until I am satisfied.

                  PETERMORRIS966, my you cents to improve your pull ups. They are general and thus you have to evaluate them considering you training.



                  *) Add you in your training Australian pull ups, as a complementary exercise. Since such an exercise does not work with all body weight, you can have a good volume in your sessions.

                  *) work also with chin up. The chin ups use more the biceps respect pull-ups, thus one can obtain "easily" a good volume during a workout.

                  *) work on negative pull ups. They help to the body to learn the movement. I am not a big fan of negative approach but they can help a lot.

                  *) work on your grip. e.g. dead hang and flexed arm hang, farmer walk. The importance of grip is underestimate by pullup novice.

                  *) use a back off approach. After the last set you do a descendent ladder till 1 and the rest time is decrease proportionally. This methodology helps to increase the number of repetitions avoiding an high stress. In your case, in my opinion, it can be useful (i.e. you add a set of 2 reps and one of 1 reps, and thus increase of 3 reps the total number of reps, that means +33%), but I will wait to perform set of 4 reps to have a "big" qualitative gain.

                          I planned to do more PullUps in december, but I went bouldering 4 times with only 3-4 days rest, my arms can definitly not handle additional pullups....

                            Even though I'm throwing snow at people in the Snowfight thread, I'm still doing pullups.

                              after a (medium) leg workout, I tried some weighted pull ups (20 kg and 25 kg)
