    Hello,

    I’ve been receiving your emails now but haven’t gotten started. I’m a veteran of pull-ups (66 now) and have been doing them since 1966. At that time( 5 years from then), I was able to do 24, including 10 weighted pull-ups with 25 lbs. Now I do 7-8, but the upper-end is difficult – even on the first rep. In the old days I would amaze people with how I would finish pull-ups with my shoulders above the bar. I’m sure if I followed your emails closely, I would already have found a solution. I use a lat machine regularly without much luck. BTW – I don’t think this survey was available when I signed up – it’s a good addition.

    Thanks

    Hi John – I just found your website about 4 weeks ago while searching for pull-up tips. I’m a 44yr old mother of 3 kids. I gave myself a goal of trying to get just 1 dead hang pull-up by my 45th birthday which is June 2. I kid you not, after reading and watching your technique video 4 weeks ago, I was able to do my 1st dead hang pull-up! I think I had the strength, just never knew the proper technique. 3 weeks after my 1st pull-up, I’m now on doing 3 comfortably! I can hardly believe it. I’m 3 weeks away from my 45th bday and now believe that I will be able to get to 5 by June 2nd. Just wanted to say THANKS for all the great information! I’ve been telling everyone about your site. All the best – Tracie

    I really want to be able to do a pull up and I’m looking for the best info I can find on how to make it happen. I’m a month away from 47, a 6’2″ female that is a good 30 pounds overweight. Been doing CrossFit for 9 months and have made great progress but the pull up is so elusive for me!! Help!!!

    Hi John. I am 61, and according to a trainer I worked with in June in great shape. Ha!

    Every year I try to set 2-3 goals to meet and learn something “new.” This year I have two goals: 1). Do 10 consecutive push ups … I’m getting close. 2). Do 10 consecutive chin-ups (eventually I’ll work towards pull ups). I have been very frustrated with the chin ups. However, with your tips regarding grip, hand placement, elbow position and shoulder pack I feel very encouraged!!!

    I cannot thank you enough for your time, energy and effort. Your information is the ABSOLUTE BEST I have found so far! Thank you, Nancy
