    what is this crap? I can only do like 15 pull ups yet some vegan dude just straight busts out 20 like nothing?

    my friend who is a vegetarian sent this to me cuz i always diss him and other vegans for being weak.
    Most all vegans looks skinny like diaz bro's this guy is pretty thick i wonder if diaz bros just do too much cardio cuz sheilds its pretty ripped too

    I didnt know vegans were weak. Hell theres a ton of alternatives. dont you just need to make sure your getting enough protein with enough essential amino acids and your good to go.

    Give it some years yet. All that stored B12 will run out, and his brain will ooze out his ears.

    Figuratively.

    its called a kipping pull up. not as impressive as a strict pull up.

    Yeah, kips are a bit like push press compared to military press.

    Still an exercise. Just not as hardcore. So you can always do more / go heavier.

    Still not impressed. I can add 40lbs to my bodyweight (that would roughly make it the same as his BW) and rep 22 while on an extreme calorie deficit, and I'm not exactly special, at all.

    It's called kipping, and he does it for a reason. He's also 275lbs and does nearly 3x the amount of the guy in your video. My point is that outliers can't be used to prove anything.

    The vegan guy is also cheating by not going down all the way with elbows locked out.

    I dont think you can compare kips with stricts.

    That kid's pull ups weren't strict. He did 3/4 reps for most of them.

    is that how to do them properly? personal trainer at my gym said go like 85% of the way down to keep constant tension on the muscle and take stress of the elbow joint at lockout. Is that BS? or what?

    As far as I know, it's fine (and maybe better) to go for the full ROM, *if* you don't slam into the full hang at speed, and *if* you don't hang around in it, so to speak. One smooth motion, really.
