      Good call brother, definitely worth doing pull ups!

    I was stuck at 5 reps with the pull up, so what I did was do pull ups with a 35lb kettlebell between my legs (suspended from a dipping belt).
    At first I could do only one rep, so I did 10 sets of one rep. Within seven days I was up to three reps and when I tested myself without the weight I was able to do 10 pull ups easily. I continued with the weighted pull ups and by two months I could do 5 reps X 5 sets with a 53lb kettlebell, and without the kettlebell I could knock out 15 strict pull ups. For me the weighted pull ups was the way to add reps to by bodyweight pull ups.

      Hey Agustin,

      Good tip! Definitely adding more resistance will help you build the strength needed to do more body weight pull ups.
