Default Pull ups

Hello!

i would like to know something about pull ups.I dont have a pull ups bar, especially pull ups bar is not thick.But near where i live there are gateways football.The bar is thicker. And after pull ups i have forearm muscle soreness. Should i do pull ups on a normal bar or thick bar? i know its harder to do on a thicker pull up bar but is that better? will not that slow my punches?

Use a thick bar if you want to improve your grip strength.

I don't see why you think using a thick bar would make you slower...?

You should switch your grip width up every 5 workouts or so. . . It will target different muscles (more, or less), and you'll keep making gains. Lets say "average" grip is right outside of your shoulders. . . Well for wide grip go about 5-6 inches wider for hand placement. . . Then for closer grip, go 5-6 inches closer. . .


Remember, pullups are important, so don't abandon them! You want to have a nice wide back, it will help you snap your punches back faster, and transition your combinations. . . Also, it'll make your jab more rangy. . .

So should i begin with standard grip? underhand at my shoulders width? and then after weeks overhand grip? but at my shoulders width too? beacus ei think that wide grip not good ... i will have more V body and elbows will not be close my body... you know what i mean. i dont know what you think...

There's no need to change that often at all. Choose either pull-ups, chin-ups or neutral grip chin-ups and keep training whichever you choose until you can do 10-15 reps for 4-5 sets then think about changing them up in some way or just adding weight.

You worked this out how? None of what you said here makes sense.

Just pick one and stick to it. Closer grip would be easiest.Pprobably best to stick to shoulder width to begin with.
