Re: Best exercise to increase pull up strength for Parkour

I started by trying to pull as much as possible for how many hours in the day I could get a pull up in - sometimes six, some times eight. I soon strained my biceps and didn't do pull ups for a while. Now I am trying a different approach... Six sets of 50% Rep Max, one set every hour, and 75%+ Rep Ma...

Re: Best exercise to increase pull up strength for Parkour

My question was more toward whether it is OK or would I injure myself, as opposed to whether I'd sweat, but thanks for sharing your input. It's some info.

Re: Best exercise to increase pull up strength for Parkour

I am planning to try the volume work out - do a couple of pull ups every hour, for 7-8 hours, five days a week. Right now, I can only do three pull ups at a time. Since I won't be pulling till failure, mostly even technical failure, do I still need to warm up? I normally do for my other workouts, bu...

Re: Feedback for Workout Appreciated!

You are pretty much like me, only younger and slightly heavier. From my experience, I'd recommend you this: 1) Don't forget your legs, your legs have the biggest muscles and will produce the most growth harmones 2) Try to do more of compound exercises which predominantly hit the upper body 3) Start ...

Re: Best exercise to increase pull ups

What if I am able to wrap it around my waist or Knees in such a way that it does help me vertically... at least by a small factor? I also bought an adjustable Hand gripper that will let me set 10-40 kg of force. Will practice endurance and strength alternatively on it. My wrists are very weak too, n...

Re: Best exercise to increase pull ups

Thanks! I actually noticed the thread on Pull Ups after I posted my question. I placed an online order for a resistance band to help me in the initial stages.

Best exercise to increase pull up strength for Parkour

I am training in Parkour and my pulling (pull ups) strength is pathetic. Apart from simply doing more pull-ups, is there any way I can speed up my progress? I guess I need to train my shoulders and upper back.

In addition, what would be an efficient way to train pull-ups or associated strength?

Re: Muscle Building and Body Fat

Hi stuward. I turned 30 this year. I used 5-6 months as a duration because in between the last six months that I have been working out, I could not do so properly for a month, month and half due to Ramadan fasting and a couple of weeks after that to get back in the mood/routine. I was really thin at...

Re: Workout Routine For Post-Pregnancy

Can you suggest a couple of exercises or muscles she needs to target more. She is thin/normal overall, except for some extra fat in the lower abdomen because of the Stretching effect during pregnancy... bit like a pillow texture.

Workout Routine For Post-Pregnancy

Hi - I really like the workout routines/directory and articles on this website. Helps me decide what areas to choose during my workout. This question is for my wife who delivered our first child last year and still has a slightly bigger than normal stomach due to streching. Otherwise, she is thin an...
