Chinups need to go up. I am sitting at around 15 dead hang right now. In 2 months, they MUST be 20.
I have never really went on a pullup program, although I have flirted a little bit with GTG, as well weighted chins and many variations.
My question is for the people who have done the programs below or know of others : What is best?
-armstrong program. 5 consecutive days a week. Failure for atleast 3 of those days.
-recon ron pullup program. 5 days a week with a set number of pullups per step.
-plain old GTG. 5-6 days a week never going to failure.
along with a specific pull program, I will be in the gym every OTHER day alternating upper with lower. Between those days I do some form of cardiovascular activity.
I read of people who have done the armstrong/recon ron program and met their goal, but it seemed like thats all they did coupled with running and crunches. With me, I will be adding lifting (low volume, compound lifts, 3-4 exercises a session)… so I dont want to overtrain.
The only set plan I have so far is increasing forearm work. I.e Captains of crush.
Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions, past experiences would be greatly appreciated.
