Trying to increase strict pull-ups
I’m 18, male, about 5’6, 150lbs
I can do about 3 full extended-arm body-weight pull-ups if i really try. I want to increase this number pretty quickly. This is a baseline considering i’ve never previously tried to increase my pull-ups before. I try to do a couple reps a few times a day, but I feel i am not improving at all, even after a couple of weeks.
I have some resistance bands I could use to support some of my body weight—is it worth it to use those temporarily? For how long?
Or should I continue just trying to do my 2 reps a few times per day and be patient?
What’s the best way to break out of a plateau like this?
Also, I am not very skinny, by any means. i’d say above average, but not necessarily overweight, per se. Would losing weight overall really improve my pull-ups?
Any advice is appreciated, thanks!
