Default What is the most number of pull ups you can do?

What is it? I read in some other forum that this guy claims to have done 200 straight. Possible? I dont think it is.

You've got to be more specific. There's about fifty different ways to do pullups. Some ways are a hell of a lot easier than others. I've seen guys hanging from bars and rocking up and down a few inches, doing fifty of them and calling them pullups. That's complete bs.

Most military and law enforcement academies do them the old-fashilend way. Dead-hang, palms facing outward, arms shoulder length apart. You do them that way and few people in the world could crank out more than 20 at a time. My academy had an olympic weightlifter who maxed out at 17.

You guys are a riot. I just went back and read that other thread. There's some funny s**t on there. There's one guy who can do more pushups than Ron Lyle, there's another guy who posted a picture of his back muscles to prove that he can do 35 pullups, or whatever, and there's a whole bunch of guys who can do 20, 30, even 40 pullups.

First up, the only way that you are going to be able to do as many pushups as Ron Lyle is if you get sent to the state pen for a few years, like Lyle did. That's pretty much all they do there, all day long, burpees and pushups. You ask an inmate how many pushups he can do, chances are he won't know. He'll tell you the number of hours each day that he does them, though.

As for all you studs on the pullup bar, I'm in awe. A few years back I heard of a Navy SEAL cadet at the Oceanside NWT Center who managed 20 dead hang pullups on a wager with staff, but he's nothing compared to you guys.

Proper pull ups? From 180 degree straight arms, then bent up as far as they can go? I did fourteen of those a while ago.

im actually an avid climber. i do pullups in a lot of different ways. most of the time, i do three finger, open hand pullups where i just hang from the three large fingertips on each hand. i can crank out 3 sets of 12 of these without problem. i also do cheater one arm pullups, palm in and out, slow and 7 repeats. pullups are a great exercise and i get more done with them than a lot of other types of exercises. i have not maxed out lately, but my guess i that i could do around 20 full (complete dead hang to chin over the bar) right now.

by the way, there's a trick to fully going dead-hang. some people consider it to be the elbow straight. i like to think it is until you actually relax the shoulder joint and allow it to separate before contracting.
