I guess I’ll never understand why people complicate their lives.
Start with 3x12 then. 1 minute rest. Once you can perform 3x15 with minimal rest, add weight.
Why do you want to know the 1rm of a pull up? Big pull up meet coming up?
Also, quite a few articles on pull ups, including a few challenges. Look them up. BTW, finding all kinds of “excuses” with the chin up project tells me you didn’t really read the article and made up your mind before.
Taken from the article:
Perform your regular workout as you always would. If you have an “arm day” and need to cut volume back slightly, that’s fine. But most lifters won’t need to if they’re using a solid workout nutrition protocol and optimizing recovery in their regular workouts.”
Do it, don’t it. No matter to me, but don’t put excuses (disturbing your focus?) on something you have never tried.[/quote]
No need to be a douche, if i was to do 15 pullups in one set i would be working with maximally 65% of my 1rm, which accordingly to everything i read is NOT even close to optimal for hypertophy and will do almost nothing for strength.
That’s why i want to know my 1rm, so i can calculate with that.
Now on finding “excuses” for the chin up project, mister give nonsense advice and assume a lot, i train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu 5 times a week which is very demanding on my lower arms and work a lot behind a computer, i have issues with tennis elbow and inflamed lower arms, so i cannot tax them any more. So i am not about to go do pullups every day, or even a couple of times per week.
And i take my training and sets seriously, i like to get my heart rate as much down as possible between sets and i’m not the type to talk to others during my sets, i am constantly focussing on my technique being aware of it and yes, focussing on it. So doing other exercises in between doesn’t work for me.
I really appreciate a lot of the advice i have gotten and am getting here, but if you’re not even reading my questions or go on assuming all kind of nonsense please dont bother responding.[/quote]
You have already been told to pick a program.
You have been given advice on all the questions you have asked and you still are not doing anything about it. Saying you are grateful and not following thru is actually not very grateful.
Getting your heart rate down as much as possible between sets is a factor of conditioning. Nothing else.
And again, I am just telling you what everyone else has been telling you in the numerous questions you have asked: Get on a different program. One that actually complements your Jiu-Jitsu training.
Or get a coach if finance let you.
Don’t worry, this is my last post to you. Good luck.
