Hey guys, I’m on week 2 of ABBH and I’ve run into a little problem with the 5x10 day for pullups and weighted dips. The first day, I did:
10, 10, 10, 9(+1 single),6(+4 singles at bodyweight)
Pullups (Body weight)
10,10,9(+1 single),5(+5doubles/singles), 4(+6 doubles/singles)
Today, I did the following:
10,10,10,8(+2 singles),6(+4 at bodyweight)
Pullups (bodyweight again!)
Ok, obviously I am weak on my pullups. I can do them weighted, but not for sets of 10. Should I start hitting the pullups twice a week? Consider doing the “perfect 10” program for my back? Should I start adding weight anyway?
With the dips, is that common to start to fail around set 4/5? I plan on moving up the weight again next time as the program says to do.
I’m progressing well with all of the other lifts, but this is my problem area. Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks a lot!
