Re: Is there any value in subbed pull-ups?

Had the same problem, takes time to build up strength. What worked for me is doing 3 to 5 sets of 1 and gradually worked up - done this in conjunction with another program called maxcapacitytraining before I switched to simplefit and I can now do 8 pullups quite easily. Patient persistence (unfortun...

Re: simplefit levels

Re: Form vs intensity

Thanks!
