What are your tips for someone who can't feel his Lats while doing pullups.
I can do at the max 3 pullups in a row. I think before my back gives up my biceps have already given up so I can't do any more body weight pullups. My best is usually 3-4 body weight pullups. I weigh 205lbs.
I have tried the following tricks already :
1. Pre fatiguing biceps : Extremely poor results.
2. Doing Pullups often.. something like 20 every day. They could be spread through the day and do them everyday. This makes me better at pullups but still I don't feel them in the back or lats.
3. Try to slap my lats before I pullup so that I can try to engange them.
None of these works well for me. After doing 10 or so pullups I am reduced to doing only singles. I can try to do as many as I want and usually that is not a problem. I have done 30 pullups in a workout doing mostly singles.
It seems I don't just know which Back muscles to use and how to use them.
Thanks in advance.
