Weighted dips/pull-ups/chin-ups
 
How many pounds do you guys add to your body weight when doing weighted dips/pull-ups/chin-ups and how many reps?

From leangains site, if you can do +40lbs 5 reps of chin-ups then you're in the very fit/strong scale.

I find dips/pull-ups/chin-ups as a good measure of strength.

I'm adding 30-40lbs depending on which it is and doing 3x8-10

Damn, every one is so strong around here.

Do you use weighted dips/chin-ups/pull-ups as primary exercises or secondary? Would make it easy if you just post your workout plan on days when you do them.

I mentioned it on a thread of mine. Tho I do:
Chest/Tris on Mon/Thu
Back/Bis on Tues/Fri
Legs on Wed/Sat

On lifts such as bench, incline, EZ bar curls, skull crushers, over head extensions, squats, dead lifts, lat pull downs, low pulley row, etc I've been trying to do 5 sets of 5 reps.

Dips and pull-ups I do more as a secondary lift. Maybe once a week if that. Usually on my secondary lifts tho I try and do 3-4 sets of 8-12 reps depending on the workout

I have also noticed I don't have **** on a few of these guys hahaha I might can lift a significant amount of weight compared to my friends tho the physiques of a few E46ers is crazy!!

BreakMyWallet 12-06-2012 02:50 AM

My workouts consist of:
Explosive

Upper body push
Superset
Lower body pull

Lower body push
Superset
Upper body pull

Core finisher

Pull/chins go on my upper body pull. I've integrated them a lot the last few years

Also do density and interval circuits.

You can see most of my workouts in the "post a workout" thread. Along with videos

Do you recover with your program? Twice a week per muscle group is a bit excessive. No? I read mixed opinions but most splits I have seen involve one muscle group per week. If it's working out for you it's great.

I tried the one group a week thing fooooor about a week. I felt sluggish idk just didn't feel like I was pushing enough. But anyways. With my current routine I've been moving up in weight 5 to 10 lbs every day and see size gains prettyyyy damn fast. Don't plan to change a thing except eat a little cleaner. But twice a week with Sunday off I'm never sore except leg days and never feel weak on second days. Always moving up so far

ATU2010 12-06-2012 03:07 AM

Today I lifted at 8:30 tho. Huge no no for me. Never can fall asleep till after 2:00 am which equals maybe 5 hours of sleep tops

Green_Shine 12-06-2012 08:40 AM

45lbs for both chin and dip.

I'm far ahead of pretty much all my buddies... then you come here. Majority of regular posters push serious weight. I was thinking I was getting decently strong, then I read the workouts guys post... :cry:

Gives you something to strive for at least

z00 12-06-2012 10:54 AM

I know, was thinking the same thing. Maybe it's time to switch to a six-day split. Many of prof body builders workout 6 days a week. But we ain't no prof builders. :banghead:

Interesting. Can you post a full workout sample of a week? I'm sure you change it. I wanna get an idea of sets/reps and type of exercises.

I tweaked a 4 day split in my progress thread (near end) recently that may interest you as well, split out by muscle groups / exercises / reps & sets.

6 day splits... remember that working out is HURTING your body, where as rest days + proper nutrition are HEALING and GROWING... if you workout 6 days, when do you have time to heal? Going to these extremes are only necessary for those who have 5+ (more likely 10+) years of lifting, where gains only come to the seriously dedicated.

I'm at 3x6 reps with 40lbs in my weight vest on ring dips. I'm assuming that's harder than regular dips. I got 9 the first set last week. Tomorrow I attempt 45lbs. I don't foresee a problem.

On chinups I'm at 25lbs for 3x5

pull ups, never tried yet.

Glight 12-06-2012 02:14 PM

I've done a pullup with 88lbs, a set of 3 chins with 88 and a set of 2 dips with 135. That was many lbs ago though. I'm a lot heavier now and dont work them exclusively....

M3Inline6 12-06-2012 02:26 PM

Right now I'm regularly using 50 lbs. for my pull/chin-ups and dips, but I do heavier, low rep sets with 60 lbs. in an attempt to break a plateau. I regularly can muster 4 sets of 8-10 pull-ups/chin-ups - depending on how taxing my workout was - using 50 lbs. on a weight belt. I do them at the end of my workout, so some days I feel stronger and more capable than others. I've never attempted anything higher than 60 lbs.

z00 12-06-2012 02:40 PM

I was prod of myself for doing chins 5 reps with 30lbs. Then I come to read this. I'm only 163lbs. :banghead:

We should call you guys El Diablos.
