Thank you for all the replies. Hungry4More, why would I lie?
I think I posed the question poorly. Let me say it this way, if I saw a 225lb guy benching 315 8x and I saw he could only do 1 pullup, I would say he definitely had a much stronger chest. I have had friends that hated doing legs and could bench more than they could squat. Obviously they had much better developed chest than legs. We used metrics like 1.5x weight for bench and 2.5x for squat as metrics for goals, than 2x and 3x respectively. If one person was 2x for chest and under 2.5x for squat, we would say he was under developed in his legs. I am wondering what/if there is a similar thing for pullups (from knowing that you can 1.5x your weight in bench, you can infer your reps at 1x, etc).
Right now, I can do 7-8 neutral grip pull ups. I weigh about 215 (and thats about 40lb over what I weighed when I quoted what I used to be able to do, which was the mid to late 90s). I can bench my weight about 15 times (thats a guess, I haven’t tried, but I have done 1 set of 12 at 225 before going up and that wasn’t failure).
I just don’t know if that is balanced or not. I would definitely say if I could only do 1 or 2, that would be a sign that I was not very balanced.
Having said all that, the exercise the doctor wants me to to is a close grip pull down, but not straight up and down but rather at an angle. On these pull downs, I can get 8 of 230. I do seated rows, wide and close grip. I use an odd machine because the gym I work at is pain to chase down weights (nyc gym that is more for cardio/saying you go to the gym). I was doing 4 back/rear delt workouts to every 1 chest/front delt workouts, but I am trying to get an idea when I can go 2 to 1 and then back to 1 to 1. The other problem, is that though I am not fat anymore, I am targeting weight loss with muscle retention (my weight loss has been very steady but slow, I can say I have maintained strength, not sure on muscle mass though).
Oh I don’t think I can do pendlay rows. I have suffered disk degeneration in my neck and lower back. He is just now considering letting me dead lift.
Thanks again for any advice. I am sorry if I seem uniformed, I guess I am.
