    skip to week 11 and put weights around your feet

    i was thinking about going to week 14 but no weights, i think i like ur idea more. how much weight should i be using??, it feels like 4 pounds per ankle makes a HUGE diff. like 10 times harder.

    At my school, I do some pullups with a weight belt, first starting with 25lbs. Do as many As I can, then drop the weight to a 10lb on the belt, do as many as I can, then take off the belt, and do as many as I can.

    Weighted pullup are awesome to improve on getting more pullups. But I recommend people doing this if and only if they have over 10 pullups.

    I am pretty sure I nailed 9 with it, but it was tough. Do not worry, as long as you are feeling it with what you are doing then you should improve. ANND, other back exercises help you do more pullups. Back extensions, dumbbell rows, lat rolls. Grip exercises help with gripping the bar. Stuff like that.

    I managed to get from 16 to where I'm at from doing other exercises that help strengthen the muscles you use to do pullups.

    There is no need to rush, as long as you are improving on your last IST then you should be fine. Other than that, also follow the pullup program that is on this thread because I believe it can work for you.

    Your number of pullups will go down, not up.
