Hello,

If one increases their dip number would this affect and increase their pull up number?

Thanks.

the dips hit the lats but in a very indirect way. think of it as supplemental training. the only way to get better at someting is to do it. so train pull ups. mess around with different routines, etc.

Maybe you can try dumbell bicept curls might help a bit.

Or pull up on a place wer u can rest ur legs on the ground so your body is diagonal so your lifting less weight

Hello,

Thanks for all the answers. Here is a training program I designed myself for todays workout.

Now I will go out to the park close to my home and implement this program. Then I want to come back to the forum and feedback if I was able to complete all the program/sets/reps and how it went.

I design similar programs for every workout season. My intention l is being good and pull ups and acquiring whole body strength and getting in good shape. My long time goal is being able to do muscle ups and human flag. Do you think that this is a good example training routine for my goals? Or should I include outher exercises ? Could you please give some example?

Thanks alot.

Pistol Squat 12-12=24
Sit-up 35-35-35=105
Pull-up 6-5-4-3=18

Ok I tried to complete my designated exercise program but I could not complete %100 of it. It too long for me (about 2 hours) and I really got so much tired and I had to skip some reps. So here is how it went :

Basic Plank 01:40
Side Plank 00:25
Squat 11-11-13=35
Push-up 21-17-14=52
─░ncline push up 12-9-8=29
Pistol Squat 12-12=24
Sit-up - I did not do this one becuase I thought I need not to do it where I will do hanging leg rises.

Pull-up 6-4-4-3=17 - I could not attain my goal here.
Push up on the h-bar 2-2=4
Dip Still working for this one.
Chin-up 3-2-2-2=9 I could not attain my goal here.
Bench Dip 11-11-11-9=42 I was better than my goal here.

I was so tired so I had to skip most of the Australian pull up part.

Standard Australian Pull Up-8
Wide Grip Australian Pull Up 16-8=24
Narro Grip Australian Pull Up-6
Hanging leg rise 8-8-8=24 I could not attain my goal here.
Pull Up Leg Rise 5-5-3-2=15

So maybe you can tell me how should I design my workout program to be better on pull ups and dips?

Thanks a lot. Smile

Your workout seems a bit too much of too many muscles. Why not concentrate on sections. Chin up and push up day (back and chest) then a legs day. Then abs. Etc

That way may seem longer but u may see faster results.


The body can only process a X amount of protein to muscle in a certain time frame. By working all the muscles in 1 sitting u will not process enough protein (muscle) for all the groups of muscles

activated effectively. Also different muscles for diff days ensures your resting a muscle while working others. Which avoids overworking muscles n injuries

Oh yea when I was working out today, I thought about this. It was too much for me. It seemed like the days work out will never end. Well so I needed to short cut some exercises.

So I think I must do what you tell me to do. I will think about this in detail.

Thanks.

Ok thanks for your message. I will try the close grip push up. Maybe I can try doing this putting some weight on my back. This way it would help more maybe?

You seem sufficiently strong in your legs.

Sure,add weight using a bagpack/weighted vest.

Getting stronger in pushups and Aussie pullups will supplement your dips and pullups.
