How many sets of negatives should I do?
Negatives work best if used for just 3 reps per workout; always the first rep of the set, and never on consecutive sets. Use for no longer than a month.
How many pull ups do you have to do to see results?
Adults – Data for adults is harder to come by, but my research has led me to conclude the following. Men should be able to perform at least 8 pull-ups, and 13-17 reps is considered fit and strong. And women should be able to perform between 1-3 pull-ups, and 5-9 reps is considered fit and strong.
Is 10 pull ups a day good?
If you can perform 15 or more pullups in a single set before failure, doing a few sets of 10–12 pullups without going to muscular failure is probably safe to do every day. If you already have some training experience, you likely fall somewhere in between those two levels.
Do negatives build strength?
“Focused negative exercise, the kind that occurs when you first do the slow lowering of a Push-Up, can cause microscopic tears, which ignite the protein-synthesis process.” Roig concluded that “negative training was significantly more effective in increasing muscular size and strength than positive-style training.”
Do negative reps build muscle?
In addition to building bigger, stronger muscles, negative reps also help make your connective tissue (ligaments and tendons) more resilient, fortifying them against strain and injury.
The minimum is eight pull-ups with no time limit, but you cannot touch the ground or let go of the bar. You should be able to do 15 to 20 to be competitive.

Why am I not getting better at pull ups?
There are a number of common reasons why people can’t do pull-ups: Not being able to hold onto the bar through lack of grip strength. A lack of latissimus dorsi (large back muscle), spinal erector (lower back stabilizer muscles), abdominal muscle, and biceps strength. A lack of “mind-to-muscle” connection.
