Hey guys, I have a question and hopefully someone can help me out. It's tough for me to do a single pull-up.
I'm a fairly strong, well-built person. I weight 211lbs, 35-inch waist, 5'11. I can do 170lbs lat pull downs so far, but it's just very hard, nearly impossible to do a pullup. I've been exercising for a while, but it's always hard for me to meet that mark of being able to pull myself up. I respond very good to exercise and eating, and am able to gain muscle fairly fast. So it seems as I put on more weight, it becomes harder as my strength doesn't catch up. I have a well-built back too, and I wonder if I just hit some sort of plateau.
Can anyone advice me on what I should do in this situation? Do you recommend I do more reps with less weight to increase strength? Thanks.
