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

We should call you guys El Diablos.

On chinups I'm at 25lbs for 3x5

pull ups, never tried yet.

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.
