This makes life a bit easier...

I had a school schedule like that in my 3 years as a freshman.

I know right I usually run for at least 90 minutes backwards on a treadmill before setting the speed to sideways. For pullups I usually just try to work my calves into the swing before I finish the negative portion of the set. It's just much easier that way. You should try it too, I hear it boosts your t-levels up to a point where doing 64 pullups is easy on 90 minute cylce. Man if I had the link I would share it because the internet has everything you need to know about balancing time and space in a continuim while steadly increasing the strength you need to do 64 pullups. Good luck!

i understand. i once had to miss finals to get in my pullups and sprints. my prof totally understood and just gave me an A for "awesome"

Re: combining pullups with school
 
Maybe he could take an iron gym to school. Just hang it in the doorway and knock out some reps as the professor blabs about some constanints and vouls on the whiteboard.
I bet the chicks would dig it too.

It's adult high school, so where I live(Canada), it's not the same thing in regular high schools.

I don't know the school schedule for you americans... That, or you're pulling my leg.

So, there's NO professor.

I don't know if you're a real person or a total troll. On the off chance that you are actually real, here we go. This is the last I'm contributing to this thread or any other you may start.

Doing pullups should not be a life priority. It should not take away from your sleep. It should not take away from your school. Your life should not revolve around pullups, walking, or any kind of exercise.

Doing sets of pullups should not take a great deal of time. You can do a pullup on anything you can safely hang off of. Anyone that performs the frequency method of pullups should not be doing sets of anything more than 20 seconds. 20 seconds x maybe 8 sets = less than 3 minutes of total time.

Finally, you should not live your life according to what people on the internet say. They've never met you, they don't know you. How can they (and by they, I mean we) possibly know what is best for you?

If taking this last point to heart means you ignore me and go back to missing sleep so you can cramp up on a treadmill, then so be it. Besides the fact that you've created a logical issue by listening to me about ignoring me (beside the point), at least you are doing what you think is best for you. Perhaps someone you actually talk to in real life will be able to get into your head.

Goodbye, and good luck.

well hell why waste time if theres NO professor, just take a portable pull up bar to class and rip out some reps in the doorway. If theres no prof. he cant send you to the principal. And even if he does, just tell him youre not really sure why youre there but you really need to get back to that pull up bar. Then go scoop up some hot "adult high school" chicks for being a total bada$$ and getting sent to the proncipal :kicking0: Maybe even find some handcuffs to wear and see if you can work out a deal with your school officer to pull you off the pullup bar kicking and screaming to make you look even harder to the honeys.

Abdi, do you have a primary language other than English? This is the only way I can fathom you don't see the leg pulling or rather sarcasm dial cranked up to 11 here.

Either you are a troll OR you you need to take Jeff's advice, strip down and start from scratch with your decision making and reasoning skills because they are not good right now.

I noticed the sarcasm. I just don't see what the big deal is. I get to 10 pullups, and then instead of doing pullups everyday, I just do 3x5 weighted sets 3 times a week.

Why am I a criminal for taking a few weeks for myself?

what about trying grease the groove with weighted pullups? do you think that might work?

Bill M. Hesse 02-21-2013 06:01 AM

Re: combining pullups with school
 
Your not a criminal, but it would seem you are making poor choices. Define reasonable goals i.e I want to do 20 pullups, and then look for a program: http://www.lamarineofficerprograms.c...ng_Workout.pdf WFS

You are making this too hard. You are reinventing the wheel and you don't have to. Go to school and do this simple programming. If you are spending greater than 30 minutes a day doing pullups, you are wrong unless you are being paid to do it. Consider you should really be able to do pullups and sprints in 30 minutes neither of which should interfere with a single aspect of your life.

(No Sarcasm)
For your sleep and routine, you probably are going to have to choose something and stick to it. It's not unlike the pull-up program.
So, decide on what time you want to go to bed. Decide on what time you want to get up. And stick to it. Go to bed at 11:30pm and get up at 7:45am. Regardless if you have slept, or are tired, or can't sleep, or what.
Much like everything else in life, including pull-ups, you have to do it. It will be hell for a week or two, sure, but after a couple of weeks you will form some habits that should start to become easier. In theory, because you are going to bed and getting up at the same time, you'll set your circadian clock. So don't nap on the couch at night either while you are trying to establish a habit.
Also, take a look at your bedroom. Is it dark ? Do you like your pillows ? Is it noisy ? What keeps you up ? Is it that coffee you had two hours ago?
You have to try and fix some of these things. Like get some heavier blinds, buy a pillow (and/or pillow case) that is comfortable etc - it may cost some $$ but is worth it. You just have to change.

Ok I will try again. Really, lay out your day,

Fill in the blaanks
I get up?
I do what for how long? (shower, eat, get ready, get on the internet)
I go to class from, to, ?
After class what time is it?
What do you do till you go ti bed?
What time do you got to bed?

I have greased the groove and still do with pullups ext.

Once I had a pull up bar that i passed a lot every day going back and forth through out my day. I made it a point that every time I pass that bar I would put down what ever I had and knock out a few reps, all day. It took seconds, I was on my way.

Like Jeff( I think) said find a place where you can do a pull up and do some. Do them when you can, does not have to be every day, just when you can.

My morning warm up is
3x10
HSPUs
pullups
GHDs
situps
pushups
squats

it does not take more then 10 to 20 mins if i don't drag it out. That is before work, before food.

It is hard to think you are serious with out you posing your days plan. You give me nothing to work with. You make is sound like you have no time for anything really. With out seeing what you day/ week looks like, I and everyone thing you are just messing around.

I get up? 1:30 I couldn't sleep.
I do what for how long? (shower, eat, get ready, get on the internet) I got on the internet for 3 hours. I felt too full to do pullups so I took my time. Then I did 17 pullups basically resting 7 minutes between each set(sometimes would do cardio between each set)
I go to class from, to, ? 9:30 to 12
After class what time is it? 12 I got home at 1:30. I did 3 more pullups today.
What do you do till you go ti bed?
What time do you got to bed? I went to sleep at 10:30 yesterday.

Ok now we're getting somewhere. We DO want to help you but hopefully you understand it has been difficult.

When you say you did 17 pull ups, how did you break that up? 6-6-5? Something like that?

Regardless of that, I feel that 7 minutes rest is a little more than what you need if you are crunched for time, but I guess it doesn't really matter as long as you are getting them done.

Now about the 3 hours between eating and pull ups. Did you feel nauseous or like you would puke if you tried doing pull ups? They aren't exactly a vigorous exercise, and I think if you tried doing some pull ups while being full you would be surprised to find out that they are no more difficult. Sure, you'll be a little heavier, but that is really no reason to stop you. Give it a try.

I know you and I aren't the same person, but just to give an example: I wrestled in college. We were required to be a certain weight, which meant we would starve ourselves for periods of time to make a certain weight. On days we had to wrestle, we would weigh-in (usually 10+ lbs lighter than we were a couple days ago), then we would eat and drink so much we felt like we couldn't move. Despite that fact, we had at most 1 hour after weigh ins until we had to warm up and wrestle a match. By the time we were done eating and drinking it was only about a half hour. Again, I understand we aren't the same people, but I still think you could manage some pull ups after eating. Give it a try, if you puke, my apologies.

I did 17 singles before school. You think I could cut it down to 5 or 6 minutes between sets? I'm just scared I won't recover well enough.

It's just that sometimes when I eat, I will binge. I end up downing a big bowl of cereal and 4 waffles covered with Nutella. I'd try to do pullups and I couldn't do any.

If I eat cleaner, it's much harder for me to overeat. But if I eat clean, by the time I've finished all my pullups I feel like binging again.

Ok, I'm gonna try to keep this on topic and not really go into the nutrition side, although that would help tremendously. To put it shortly, don't binge. It's as simple as that, really. Try to get some more protein. Moving on...

So you're saying you would do 1 pull up and then wait 7 minutes to do another one? That is probably not giving you much benefit. Do them in sets of 3-4 at a minimum, if you can.

Doing it the way you say you did means it took you 2 hours to do 17 pull ups. If you did 4 per set with the same rest cuts you down to about a half hour, which would be a start.

You are not going to over train pullups at your volume.

I would like to see a video of your sets and reps, that would help alot to be able to coach you.

Do them on the min for 10 or 15 min. I do on the min pullups x3s , you may not be up to that level, so that is where the video comes in.

oh and on your day. You poster, you got up at 1:30, I take that to be A.M. and said you were done again ( with the sets of pullups) by 1:30 I take that to be P.M. That leaves alot of time for pullups unless you forgot something or I read it wrong.

That reps as best I could see looked easy. Try to do 1 reps every min for 15 mins ans see how it goes. I bet you will be surprised at how well you do.

Brad Allen Jones 02-21-2013 08:30 PM

Re: combining pullups with school
 
Yeah it looks like you could definitely get more. Listen to Nik. Try it every minute on the minute for as long as you can go, I'd guess you'd get to at least 15.

So I tried it every minute on the minute. Seemed to help a lot(apparently, I can recover better). Got my last 5 pullups for a total of 65 pullups.

I always thought I needed more rest time, not less. Less rest time might actually work better.

Gotta give people a chance my man. We don't know him at all. He seems to be responding to the thread. So it really is not a big deal to me to try to help him.


Gotta extend that grace, that is what makes this community so good, we all want to help each other as best we can.

Good, ok, net question. What is you goal with the pullups? What do you want to be able to do. Think short term goal and long term goal.

Like

short term goal. I would like to add 3 more pullups to my total to my 65 rep daily count.

long term goal, knock out 10 reps in a row like a champ.

You get the idea.

This will help us know how to coach you in your daily efforts.
