I can manage 26 proper pull ups at the moment, they have been a regular part of my routine for several years.

see now this is realistic and believable, youve been practising them for several years and achieve a respectable 26 properly formed pull ups

so why do people , like virus said, feel the need to bull shit about this exercise in particular?

At 220lbs I can do 12 true widegrip behind the neck pullups on a straight wide pipe.

As far as the pull up goes there is a lot of varience.

#1 the grip over hand is a true pullup anything else underhand or neutral is a chin-up.

#2 The width of the grip wide is much harder

#3 The bend of the bar a bent bar is much harder than a straight bar

#4 Whey you pull up to. Pulling up to your chest is much easier than behind your neck.

This is something we all know. The real point is that because of the variance in the way you can preform the exercise how many pullups you can do doesn't really matter. While I'm proud of all the strict behind the neck pullups I can do I do more pullups to my chest. Because I want to work the middle of my back where most of my mass and strength lies.

Vary everything keep the body guessing you only compete against yourself.

Why do you do behind the neck pull ups? There are safer ways to build your traps than that, anything behind the neck is just testing flexibility really while putting your rotator cuff at massive risk. If it works for you fine but I'm just saying this so others here don't go out and injure their cervical vertebrae and shoulders. You'll never find a strength and conditioning coach who works with professional athletes instructing behind the neck exercises.

Realistically, @160-165lbs I can do about 10 pullups and 16 chinups (give or take a few depending on how I feel that day).

In terms of this thread,

I can do like 80.
I can do them with my eyes closed too.

Beat that.

Weight is about 175lbs. I can do about 12-15 chinups and maybe 10 pullups, that's full reps, arms locked out after each, none of the silly down to 90 degree half ROM crap we all see at the gym on a daily basis.

<Waiting for aramini to post about how he can do 50, post videos and write a full story all about his weight, training, looks etc etc>
Thanks for taking care of the dirty work for me already

I won't say anything except incrementally weighted pullups done consistently really help you get past plateaus on normal numbers when you do them without the weight attachment. It helped my max numbers a whole lot, but you should up the weight attachment gradually over time.

When I do them I'm not trying to work my traps I'm trying to hit the ever edge of my lats. That is one of the reasons that it is a very weak position. You dont have that much power that wide. More power lies at the center of the back. And you are right it is a very risky exercise especially if you cant do them right. Most people don't have the power to do even a single behind the neck pull up pulling straight down. They have a lurchy motion where they throw their head under the bar at the very end. This is bad for your shoulders as it pulls the shoulders open. I don't have this motion but it took a lot of work to get to that point. I just didn't' start doing free behind the neck pullups. It took years on the gravity machine to get to the point that I could even do a few reps hanging free with correct form. I was inspired by Franco Columbu to get to the point that I could do them correctly. Franco was a great amature boxer BTW.

All that being said it makes up a minority of my back work. Most of my pullups are too my chest where the power of the back lies.

220 in 30 minutes is the pull-up world record.

What happened to that 60kg fighter Martin Ward you've been hyping up to beat Lomachenko? He's out already, lost to some no mark.
