Armostrong did a lot for me. I used it for Pull Dips and push ups. I saw increasments. I tested recon and the 20 pull ups challenge and it didnt help me. U have to experiment man because for others recon was very helpfull.

twentypullups is the program I used to get my max from 2 pull-ups to 20+. But you should focus on strength as well as endurance. Move onto harder pull-ups such as L-sit pulls, sternum pulls, etc.

I see.

I used the twentpullups program and it definitely worked for me - it's the only thing I used at one point Razz If you use it, make sure to stick to the required rest times (90s or 120s), don't rest too much.

Personally I recall starting the twentypullups program on week 1 column 2 with chin-ups (back in August 2011). I got to week 3 within about 4 weeks and then my max was 13 chin-ups. After getting stuck on week 5 for a while I switched to pull-ups and started on week 1 column 3

At the end of the day It depends what kind of training works for you. This program requires you to do a short workout only 3 times per week, which suited me. I think I'd get worse or plateau doing it every day. But I know a lot of people that train everyday (greasing the groove) programs like Recon Ron or Armstrong.

If you can do Week 3 Day 2 with 90s rests (6,5,6,5,6), then your max will be 12-14 I think.

I personally found the 120s rests workouts to be easy and then it'd be really intense on the Day 2s (90s rests) days.

I haven't tried the 50 program but it looks good.

There is another program called fiftypullups but it got taken down and changed slightly. I used that for a while. It's similar structure to twentypullups except every workout is 90s rests between sets.

The best programs to me are the ones you built yourself, think of something brutal and stick with it every day no matter what you do you will adapt even just maxing out 5sets daily for a few weeks will build your reps very fast.

I just started the 50 pull-ups program too. Not to get to 50, but just coz CTurner said it took him from 0 to 11 in 6 weeks. I'd like to get up to 20 - that would be pretty awesome. I thought at first it was going to be easy (max was 9 and the first session was 3, 3, 5, 3, max out) but realising it ramps up pretty quickly. Normally I do my own sets, but interested in seeing what a more structured routine will be like. Also will be nice not to have to think about pull-up routines for a bit whilst I focus on some other things.

It does ramp up the reps pretty fast. I reckon it's definitely worth sticking with though, at least for a couple of cycles. I think those of us at the lower end of the rep spectrum could potentially gain quite a bit.
