Well done. I'm just a little behind you. 20# for 3 reps at 195.

twenty pounds. And yes, I'm being sarcastic. I'm a long way behind you and have always found these hard. Still, it's all relative. I'm stronger than I was.

ohok I was just wondering when I first started would do 5 sets of 5 with 25 lbs.
It just takes time to increase the weight.

The most i have ever done was 27 body weight pull ups but that was never something I focused on. I have to get a weight belt to see whats up.
