How are you training for the chinup challenge?

I had started a thread to discuss chinup/pullup training for the current challenge. Some people found it a little confusing, posting results of the pre-test max and their goals for the challenge there, instead of the challenge thread. So I thought I'd change the title of the thread to make it less confusing. I managed to do it, actually splitting all the posts from the thread into a new thread with a different name, and deleted the old thread, or so I thought. Actually I deleted the new thread, and all the posts. Moderator powers don't allow retrieving a thread after it has been deleted, so here's a new thread to discuss training.

Sorry to have lost the contributions you made.

I'm getting an MRI on my left shoulder this month to hopefully finally solve the mystery. Since I've gotten a bit of a better handle on it, my goal is to actually ramp up my upper body training and gain some of the weight I've lost since the mystery pain started. As much as I'd like to do sets of 3-5 with the 20.4kg plate, I'm going to stick to rep ranges for everything involving that shoulder of 8+. Otherwise, lots of weighted chins, and lots of food.

I'm doing 5/3/1 of which the 5s will be today, so I'll update over the weekend. As for goals I don't really know as I haven't plateaued on this yet because I've only done a couple of cycles.

Yesterday I did 5 sets of chins, 5-across the first 4 sets, then going to failure at 7 reps on the last set. Next time I'll try for 6-across 5 sets.
