Four years back, I really did this for around 3 months. My precept in our society lifting group was “each day is pull-up day”, and each lifter in the clique knew me as the pull-up guy.
I would do 5 sets to the disappointment of full range dead-hang no-kip pull-ups each night and in some cases both morning and night. By then I wasn’t lifting whatever else.
Weighed 130 pounds, could scarcely seat my body weight, couldn’t squat even 100 pounds and never tried deadlifting before.
So this is what happened:
1. My maximum pull-ups per set expanded from 4 to 19 of every 3 months. My recuperation time between sets dropped radically too, and I could do 81 full range of movement reps in 5 sets with 5 minutes rest between each set.
2. With a gigantic swing and enormous kip, I did my first muscle up following 3 months.
3. My shoulders began building up some flimsiness that occasionally harms a bit on the off chance that I do too many pull-ups, or drops from a muscle-up too hard. I quit doing them consistently after this turned into an issue.
This generally turned into an issue since I would disregard any pain outside soreness. what’s more, do my pull-ups each day regardless.
4. My lats got quite big, while each other piece of me was still little and skinny. I had small legs, chest, and arms. Indeed, even the upper piece of my back and shoulders, trapezius, and deltoids, were little in contrast with my lats. This made me look really out of proportion.
5. My shirts stopped fitting admirably around my back, yet my arms weren’t big enough to fit any shirt sleeves. Once more, I grew extremely odd extents.
6. I went to the gym and grabbed a few dumbbells without precedent for months, and amazingly understood my twisting rep weight practically multiplied.
7. Seeing the noteworthy gains from devotion to pull-ups, I discovered that the body is extremely receptive to any diligent work you put into it. I applied similar devotion to different exercises (push-ups, deadlifting), and figured out how to try and out my physical make-up more.
8. Quit having issues with opening jugs with screw-on tops, and wasn’t especially thwarted when the wheels on my baggage broke.
9. I don’t have a before picture, yet here’s a photo taken two summers after all the pull-ups and furthermore after my brother drew a “palm tree” on my back with sunscreen at the beach. I am standing normally and weighed 145 pounds at the time:
All in all, I wouldn’t generally recommend doing pull-ups each day, but if you do you’ll see results fast. If you use good form and fight for those last reps, your lats will grow quickly.
I would say, doing pull-ups when you are extremely sore is no issue by any means. Your body will simply become much more and you will see increases quicker. In any case, on the off chance that you encounter joint torment in your shoulders and elbows, don’t ignore it.
Take a break, and tune in to your body, please. Indeed, even right up ’til today my shoulders still feel somewhat crazy now and again when I do pull-ups. Try not to commit a similar mistake I did. Happy pulling!
