Anthony, how long did it take for you to get your pull ups where their at? Over the last 3 months mine have only gone up 3 reps(one per set).

A while man. I've been training for almost a decade. Pull ups and push ups for me have always come natural as have dips when I put more effort into adding weight on them. What I would suggest is negatives...add some weight that you can't handle for one rep, and put a stool under your pull up station. Then just keep lowering yourself slowly and then use the stool to get yourself back up to the starting position. That'll boost your bodyweight pull ups!

Thats actually a really good idea bro. I've read people say to do BW negatives if they can't do a pull up, but i've never read anyone suggest weighted negs to increase your BW pull up. You think I should do the weighted negs before or after my regular pull ups? and how many sets?

Thanks bud!

I would do them after dude. Don't got overboard, maybe two extra sets after your work sets for lower reps, like 5 per set.

Asked how to get my pathetic chinupstrength up on another forum and some really advanced guys told me to do 2 sessions/week.

One session of bw chinups/pullups and one with added weight.
I have gone from ~7 chinups to 13-14 in alittle more than 1 month!!
Been stuck at 7-8 since I started training, years back.
