Does this pressure go something like this ?

"Son, It's time to grow up and find your own place to live. Why don't you get out and try to stand on your own two feet for a while. You can take those rubber bands with you too"

So, unless you want to me to turn into a 200 pound bodybuilder that can military press 2 plates, I'd rather take care of the pullups NOW and then worry about all the other stuff.

Also: I tried assistance bands with my little brother(who is much taller and bigger than my little sister). It didn't work. So I KNOW that the assistance is not enough, even if my little sister is not tall enough to use the bands.
I don't really think I can help you, because I don't know where you are getting these totally outlandish and incorrect interpretations of articles and advice. Nowhere in that link does it say anything about strength being the only thing. Nowhere does it say you should be trying to gain weight and look like a bodybuilder.

I've said this in response to you before: Correlation does not equal causation. Pullups strengthen certain muscles. Those muscles can marginally improve the ability to run, once the foundation for that ability (i.e., legs, core, metabolic systems) is established. The act of doing a pullup in itself is not the cause of running faster. I feel like your problem at this point is more one of logical fallacy than pullup ability.

He is not wasting everyones time, he is posting, replying may be a waste in your eyes, in that case stop posting and let him be/or do what he wants. No waste of time.

I dis agree here and there with Abdi on points, so I don't always post, easy enough.

I would agree, insults to ANY ONE is uncalled for though. Regardless of the post.
