I can also do 38 pull ups with out stoping.


That is the measure of a man. I've seen guys in the gym bench 300+ and can't do one pullup. I can do about 12-15 but I'm talking real pullup. Overhand, all the way up and all the way down.

I'm working on trying to do this.



I did 225x5 a few weeks ago on bench but I'm scared to try more without a spotter.

back in high school, i bet i could have hung with most of you guys. and i was a twig (6'0, 160 lbs) i was thisclose to doubling my body weight on the bench. I got 305 on two different occasions.

last time i tried benching 225, i got one rep. that was 2009, so i'll probably get 0 now.

IDK how many total pull ups I could do... every other back day, I do 3 or 4 sets of the pull downs then go do 3 sets of 6-8 pull ups with strict form, no cheating. I could probably get 12-14 or so pull ups if I just warmed up and did it. Not too bad at 225 lbs, but could be better...

Those "muscle ups" are pretty impressive.

Off cycle - I do 3 sets of 8 @ 225.
On cycle - I do 3 sets of 6 @ 275.

Not a big fan of bench though. If I'm trying to tear and build chest muscle I much prefer to do any variation of a dumbell fly. You can feel your chest getting torn apart on the very first rep with flys. I love it.
