Re: Pull-ups hate me

if you can do 13 strict, you're flogging a dead horse continuing at bodyweight.
Adopt a simple program of weighted pullups, 5 x 3 or similar, increasing the weight a little each set.

When you do bodyweight PUs, mix your grips; wide, narrow,mixed, towel, one hand on bar and one on towel, use the close grips from the seated row cable pulley machine over the bar.... the key is in the variety, and in steadily increasing your strength, not continuing on at the same (body)weight
