Pullup Problem

So I'm finishing L3 stuff pretty fast, but I still can't do pullups (which I guess means I'm not finishing them at all). ie. I'm damn strong but still really fat. Help me please oh wise ones.

I dont want to drop to a lower level cause its too easy for pushups and squats, but I can't do a damn true pullup and don't know how it will be until I can.

I'm in the same situation. I'm gonna stay at level 3, and maybe, for day 1 mix it up w/ level 1 day 1. And stay on your diet. As you lose the weight you'll be able to do the pull ups unassisted. Your not alone so don't let it get you down.

Your still developing strength even with the pull-ups being assisted. Hang in there!

Wow thanks. For the most part thats what I've been eating, I just haven't been vigilant on IF timing and weights. I grabbed a kitchen scale a few days ago so I'm going to buckle down on serving sizes as well.

Cool, in the interim maybe do body rows at as steep of an angle as possible.

Outstanding exercise you can do this pretty well with a large towel or rope over your pull up bar if you don't want to make or buy rings.

Kill ALL refined carbs in your diet and you should progress quickly on the diet side.

Cheers!
