Hey, Al - Sorry to get off-topic here, but you always inspire me! I have been a pullup machine for the past year, I have been doing literally hundreds a day, every day. 18 months ago, I couldn't do one.
Anyway, after reading Body By Science, where they recommend super slow weight lifting with Nautilus equipment and a one week recovery time, I got to thinking I should try that with body weight stuff.
A couple weeks ago, I started doing body weight exercises just one day a week. I do pullups, chinups, pushups on one day and squats and sprint the next. Then rest a week.
I'm doing the pullups/chinups from dead hang, 30-60 seconds up and 30-60 seconds down. I can do about 2 or 3 of these, and it makes my arms burn for a couple days. Doing 'regular' pullups, I could do about 30 in pretty good form.
Have you ever tried super slow pullups? How many can you do on a 30 second count? Just curious because I know you are the pullup champ of New York, or something like that. ha
