I sucks at pull-ups. It’s just something I’ve never gotten a solid handle on, and it’s only more difficult given my long arms and tall frame.

I know I’m not the only one in the boat.

Found this on twitter today:

The Best Way to Improve Pull-Ups? Part III – The Results and The Verdict

The short version is that if you are like me and struggle, then doing negatives is the best way to get to those first few. After that, switch to a volume based system.

It sounds a bit like a “no duh” kind of thing, but it’s nice to see someone actually out in the research to find an answer.

Thanks for this Matt, I've been struggling with pull-ups as well. I have a fitness goal this year to pass the FBI fitness test with a score that would qualify me for the TRP program which requires a minimum of 2-3 pull-ups after situps, a 300 meter spring, puships, and a 1.5 mile run and a total point score for all event of 20 or more.

I can do 2 good form pull-ups currently, but that's before completing the other exercises.  So I think I need to get in and do some negative reps after completing the other 4 exercises.
