    Hello fellow trolls.
    I'm on a mission to hit 100 pullups total in one day.
    I could probably do it today if I really tried but taking my time.
    I started with 20 pullups. Adding 1 everyday. Im currently at 42 pullups.

    Anyone ever try this or does currently ~100 pullups a day.

    Sounds like you're doing something like "Grease the Groove."

    I only do them 3 times a week. Seems like if I do more(especially wide grip) I tend to start to get tennis elbow in my left arm.

    Single best exercise you can do for any form of grappling strength, especially if it's rope pull-ups.

    Something i like doing is doing 1 pull up taking a break and adding 1 pull up every set.

    it sounds easy but gets pretty difficult pretty quick.

    Weighted pull ups is good as well start light just 10lbs add 5lbs every week

    It's actually pretty easy to do. Do 1 pullup rep, then drop. Rest 2 seconds. Rinse repeat. You literally have unlimited pullup energy doing this method. Lifehack yo

    A good way to build up volume (until you can just bang out 10 sets of 10) is going 1 rep, then 2 etc up to your rep max then back down to 1 rep. You can also do 10 sets of 5 (once you can do a solid 5 reps for sets) and add sets each week.

    I started rock climbing a year ago and have added pull ups to the end of sessions at the rock climbing gym. I used to get tennis elbow but that seems to have gone away. Pull ups are great, I mix them up sometimes using 3 finger holds or bombs on pegboards. I recommend trying pegboards -- if you've never used them.

    I've done 100 pull-ups a day before. I'm a bigger guy so it was a lot of sets.

    I loved doing 10x10 burpee pull-ups.

    I haven't done pull-ups in about ten years, though. I've spent the last couple of years doing physio and gymnastics work and am overjoyed to say that my shoulders are starting to work in ways i never thought they would again. I can't wait to one day be a doing pull-ups again!

    Nice. I have rock climbing at my gym. I should try it. Do you feel pullups have helped with it?
    How many pullups can you pop out all at once?

    Im currently at 47 pullups a day broken up into groups.

    Nice. When you did 100 pullups did you feel physically stronger? Did you notice any improvements on an olympic lift or anything? I weigh about 185lbs and im 6 ft tall.

    Yeah, you're going to notice benefits everywhere. And according to scientific studdies you'll even be able to run faster because you'll be pumping your arms faster

    Two programs that might really help are Pavel's Grease the Groove and Ethan Reeves' Density Training.

    Pavel also has a specific program for pull-ups called The Fighter's Pull-up Challenge. It's free online and might help you.

    Definitely helps. I'm working on all kinds of stuff but grip strength is a big one. I still can't climb up campus board but I'm getting close.

    I do a full 90 minutes of climbing before going to the workout room I do sets of 9 -13 pull ups but kep in mind I'm using 3 finger grips or squeezing a ball/sloper. With ball holds a lot of the challenge is keeping your body still and your weight directly onto the ball so that you have enough grip to do the pull up.

    I highly suggest trying some of the rock climbing workout stuff.
