My current weight is 160 lbs and I chinup with an additional 90 lbs (2 plates) for 5RM. I'm going to start a bulk soon and I expect this to go down. Just curious what you guys are at.

Why?

Because the IPF, APF, WPO, and USPLA are considering adding weighted chin-ups as a new lift.

Seriously? For a one rep max? Why not make it like a heavy row or something?

All I know is that when I was 170lbs I could do 20 pullups.That was chest toching bar.Now that Im over 200,I can do 3 sets of say,6 or 7 with some weight added.

I did one in a strongman competition. I was 300 lbs and strapped on an additional 150 for 1 rep. Ed Coan was judging. He told me I had to get both chins over the bar. Eddy is a very funny man.

LOL!! Was this in the same time as that trap bar DL you did? Was that an alternate lifting meet or something as opposed to the S/B/D?

Yes. And, what are these pull-ups you speak of? I wear pull-up diapers to work everyday. Is that what you mean?
