  • Rack Chins if your too heavy?

    I know I've asked a few question today already, but I got one more to ask.

    I can do only about 4 to 5 pullups, and probabily not to many rack chins when I try to attempt them tommorow. My question is what if I can only get like 4 or less, should I just keep at them, there damn hard to do when you weight 295lbs.

    Doesn't matter how much you weigh. I can only do a certain amount of chins too, but I can do LOTS of bodyweight Rack Chins. It's a very different movement.

      what's the diff. b/tw chins & rack chins?

      personally i find that i am stronger on chin-ups (bw+30 x 10) than pull-ups (bw x 8) and that i get a much better biceps pump than back pump.

            training partner puts it on your lap-----Hey im 290 and my record is 120lbs in the lap for 17 RP but Dave Henry is going to beat that very very soon because he is flying up the rack chin poundage ladder faster than Ive ever seen anyone

            (actually its 17 not 21 i just checked)

              Just out of curiosity, do you guys think its easier to use a loaded EZ curl bar in your lap? Do the grooves help it stay in place?

              By the way, Dave Henry might want to wear a cup with that kind of weight . . .

                    Ez bar works good. Also, if your just starting out, a plate works and fits fine too. I've been using a 25 and 35lb plate across my lap with no problem.

                      When I got to the two 45 lb plates with the lat pulldwon bar stuck in the holes, I decided to go to the bars instead, we go up to 130 welded cambered, small straight bars...
