Today I decided to go all out on my first set of pullups. I got 17. Does anybody know what the average is for somebody with a BMI of 21?
Wow, no way to know what the average is for any BMI, I would guess. What's your height and weight? 17 is impressive.
Good job.. I recently found out I cant even do a single pull up starting from the ground.
Oh crap, never mind, I read pushups.

Soon you can start working on one armed pullups.

Yeah, I would like to do weighted pullups sometime soon, but it seems insanely hard, even with just 10 extra pounds.
If you can do 17 BW pullups, then a little extra weight shouldn' be too hard, though they are very different strengths. I doubt i could do 17 good pullups in one set right now, but extra weight is pretty easy. It's all about what you train for.Originally Posted by Mission
That's probably psychological, 10lbs is not that much harder at all when you can do your bodyweight 17 times, I bet if you put 2 5lb plates in a backpack and tried to do some pullups, you'd get at least 10Originally Posted by Mission
i finally made it to a plate..did 5 pronated with 50 lbs. I'm 6'0 170. Also did 6 dips with 70lbs....kinda wierd how I can move 240 lbs for a dip motion but I can barely do 185 3 times on flat bench
ROM is less in a dip, and arms are in a stronger position. My dip is probably 40-50lbs stronger than my bench in poundage terms.Originally Posted by KeMiKaL
