Just for kicks, I'm going to have a friend video tape me tonight AFTER I dead lift, bench AND do four sets of 70 lb. weighted pull-ups. I guarantee that I'll STILL be able to yank 20+ pull-ups.....STRICT.
I'm guessing that's because to most of you strength and being fit equates to lifting and working out in a gym (not a bad thing, to each their own), if you really want to get better at calisthenics though then do calisthenics. Hang around people who do them and you'll know more people who can do 20 pull-ups, hell I've seen a few women get 20 before. Getting off topic but I think it likely has a lot to do with why many here seem to think 20 is some amazing's not, sorry to burst the bubble.
