how many pull ups can you all do who are super ripped without it being weighted?? Is there a number to strive for?
Most people do not do pull ups correctly period.
Start from dead hang, Arms shoulder width apart, Chin over the bar, squeeze your traps/lats at the top and keep your core activated. No rounding and no kipping
. If you can do one of those you're already 'relatively' stronger then a lot of people.
If you can do ten of those with proper form start adding weight, that is good.
Calisthenics are hard to gauge given the whole relative strength vs absolute strength dynamic. I can do 16 consecutive pulls with a 25 lb plate between my legs, but that is my absolute max
and i'm fried after that. Greasing the groove got me there and now i'm working on muscle ups and my planche. That said I am very lean and naturally leaned towards calisthenics training. A guy way bigger then me might not be able to do more than one proper form pull up, but he could pick my a** up and throw me like its nothing. It's all relative to your body composition and weight. Big dude will outlift me everywhere, but in bodyweights lean and mean is king.
What are you benching,squatting, dl? What's your weight and height?
