PostSubject: Pull up question   Sun Sep 27, 2015 2:08 pm

So if the pull up is the back exercise, and hit your lats primary, then why I don't ever feel my lats? Just to know I do pull up perfectly good form, and full rom. I do every fu*king variation of pull ups. And when I hit my max number of pull ups, and maybe less its not the back that starting to fail, its my arms. Look picture below. This full red part is hurting greatest when i hit high reps, this and that circle part fails...



so i think after some higher reps 18 or more your arms have bigger role there, not your back, if i train that part i could easily crank muck more pull ups. Thoughts?

Are you gripping with your thumbs around the bar? If so you'll probably need to work on grip strength endurance.

Gripping as mentioned above actives your forearms muscles. Its constantly been used over that period of time.

I always tell people to do pull-ups with this grip to work the forearms. Most people will have there thumb over the bar.

A good routine is

1 pull-ups
5 sec dead hang
2 pull-ups
10 sec dead hang
3 pull-ups
15 sec dead hang

till you get to 6 pull-ups and 30 sec dead hangs. Then back down to 1 pull-up and 5 sec hang

Avoid breaking off the bar, with minimum breaks/rest

Highest I got up to was 6 pull-ups and grip just gave up.

I also cant remember if i even "felt" my back to fail before my arms or soemthing.
In general i think that back muscles are massive so they can pull much and they got pretty good endurance. So in worst case if they are dead u ll feel a general exhaustion and that will be the reason u wont be able to do pull ups for example.

Talking about pull ups except the back muscles u use a lot ur arms, forearms biceps etc.
And these muscles (especially biceps) are much smaller than back muscles so i guess its normal for them to be dead 1st or feel dead there 1st.

Maybe u can try once to do some iron cross work but instead of "hanging" from arms/hands hand from ur elbows, that way its easier cause of leverage, plus the biceps/triceps wont work, but i thnk ur lats will get some work. Then when u do 2-4 max sets take a small rest and try to do pull ups. My guess is that u wont be able to do more but biceps/forearmes wont be the problem.

Its a nice topic thought, i find sometime great pain there when i try do hold for max top position @ pull up.

thanks guys..Even if i do without my thumb around the bar, the outcome is the same...I recently found that my forearms is not that much strong, and after each workout I rape my forearms with bar holds and towel holds...related to my picture above, i found some good exercises to strengthen my biceps brachii and brachioradialis m. If u want I can post it here.

@brisbanebarstuds yea that's good and hard grip exercise.
