It's the issue of volume and rest. I am doing a ton of volume. Last workout I did 74 chins and pullups total (49 chins and 25 pullups). And time between sets was 90 seconds max and often less than that.

I also attempt to hold at the peak contraction to really hit the lats hard.

Same with my heavy workouts. Last heavy workout I did 8 sets of 3 with 55 pounds and only 60 seconds rest between sets. I could probably chin around 75 pounds for 3 reps for one or two sets (or a few more sets if I rest longer between sets).


228 days to gain 26 pounds - althought, it is 27.5 based on waking up light today, errgh!


Had to run an errand and thus workout was EXTREMELY rushed, I did 10 hard sets in 20 minutes...brutal.

220, 230, 240, 250x5
265x5, 4 sets

When I got back to work, I did some rear leg elevated split squats in my office to finish off my workout

Rear leg elevated split squats
BWx12, 4 sets
