What weight do you use for weighted chins to be able to hit 30 bw reps?[/quote]
Dunno, four years ago I remember that for 2 weeks I was doing 5 sets of 5 with 40kg, but now I try to train higher reps because I injured myself doing it, then didn’t do chin ups for a long time.
But it’s very odd - I didn’t train to use that weight, I started off already being able to do it, just like I started off already being able to do 30 bodyweight reps. Seriously, from completely untrained (as in not working out in any form), I always knew that I could do a lot of chin ups, so one day, I thought I’d see how many I could do, and it was 30. And then, I figured that if I could do lots with no weight, I might be able to do a few with a lot of weight, and I added 40kg to me, and could handle that pretty easily. It’s not like I built up to that weight.
However, since I started training, I have not improved.
It feels like I started from a good level of baseline strength, but my body somehow does not respond to training…?
I’m on 15kg for 3 sets of 10 reps now, and struggling to improve. I don’t believe I have peaked yet, so my progressive overload system and/or recovery probably sucks.
