If you are looking to train pullups, why not copy the best?

Re: 100 CLEAN pull-ups in a row

I wanted to say that doing only pullups for the past couple of weeks has really been good on my performance. The only bad thing is that I got really tired doing pullups every day and now I am doing pullups in every 2 days.

I really feel how pullups are getting easier and easier.

Apparently this is the record without letting go off the bar. 232 reps in 36 minutes.

It is worth noting that his reps weren't very strict, legs were swinging. In fact not even his first 20 looked THAT strict. But... the dude stayed on a bar for 36 minutes and that by itself impresses the HELL out of me, wow, talk about grip endurance. How can he REST while 1-arm hanging after a set of pull-ups? I gotta work on my grip. Impressive feat of course. I still say nobody is getting 100 consecutive pull-ups in the strict fashion described in the OP's video. Why have I not seen one youtube video of even 50 done that way?
Depends.

I'll bet that guy could do 100 consecutive even with that technique IF he was allowed to "rest" on one arm periodically. I mean, he did do more than twice that with like 95% of full extension and minimal moving of feet/legs. Without being allowed to "rest" on the bar, I'm not convinced even that guy could do it.

Regardless, what should be pointed out here is that the technique in the video is pointless and invites shoulder injury. Full arm extension is fine, and easy to judge. No moving of legs is a worthy goal but it's impossible to not swing a little, making it hard to judge. But fully relaxing the muscle around the shoulder joint each rep causes incredible stress on the joint and actually reduces the effectiveness of the lift as a strength-builder.

Re: 100 CLEAN pull-ups in a row

Another update. I have found out that I can do very many series with low amount of repetitions. Doing 100 dead hang pull-ups in 30 minutes is not a problem (eg 3x33), but it gets very difficult when I have to do long repetitions.

When doing a lot of series, it is easy at the beginning (first 15 series), then it gets difficult for a while (15-35 series) and then it is easy again! It is weird.

One day, after doing about 60 series in a row (about 1 hour), I was able to do again 8x reps in a row! Why is this like this? It got difficult and then easy again.

Thanks

Re: 100 CLEAN pull-ups in a row

Yeah I mean I could start a thread about having a 1000lb raw squat when I can presently squat 200lbs.

If this is your goal, then you should do a lot of pull-up ladders (search pavel pullup ladder or something) and a lot of pull-ups throughout the day. I think it would be mildly helpful to get your weighted pull-ups to about +150lbs. Once you get really good, you can work on arm-focus half-reps and lat focus half-reps. You'll need to train antagonist muscles or you'll have issues.
