    Default Pull up: Evaluation of Expectations

    Hi guys, will be having my PFT in 2.5weeks time. I need some evaluation from experts. I am aiming for 5, which is the minimum for a silver. I am now doing only 3.

    My training schedule.
    Everyday will try to do pullups. In no particular order, just try as many as i can. But most of the time, i can do 3.5. And after that, i can't do anymore.

    On Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday,
    after the pull up, i will do 10 log-carrying on both hands, and on individual hands. After which, 20 bench press, 20 flex arm hang.

    2 sets of the above paragraph.

    May i know is it realistic to aim to add 2 more chinups in 2.5 weeks time?

    Any tips and advices?

    Thank you.


    Please help help.

    From my personal experience, just concentrate on doing pull-up would do. Sometimes, it just not a matter of strength but rather confidence. if you believe u can do it, you might just do it. Sounds silly but that happened to me.

    U gotta train in cycles i.e., do as many pulls ups as u can (set a min num), rest 5 mins, do again.

    Do a few cycles and u should see yourself progessing.

    I used this method and jumped from 8 to 19 in a month

    just keep doing pull-ups.... i progressed from 1 to 10 in two months when i was in JC. when doing pull-ups, keep your momentum. that's important.

    i will also do a set of dips after my pull-ups

    I think you may be over training. Are your arms perpetually sore?

    I feel that if you can do 3 standard pullups(steady slow pulls), you should be able to progress to 5 easily just by refining your technique by being more relaxed.

    Do flex arm hangs(asking a friend to support if necessary) when you've reached your limit for each set of pullups. About 2 sets a time, twice a day should suffice.

    Give it a rest if your arms seem tired.

    shoot wit a 600mm/F4 handheld

    in addition to all the types of interval/set/cycle training u may like to embark on, i believe u should strength-train these various parts of your body:

    deltoids(anterior, posterior, lateral)
    upper and lower back
    lats
    triceps, forearm
