good advice there from renee. 1. many sets of less reps and 2. do then first in your pulling day, and i'll add one more: 3. negatives.

So when your last rep approaches pull yourself up and sloooooowly lower yourself down fighting every inch of the way, count to 15 or 20 on the way. Negatives are the best way to learn the first reps a lot of people say. Those who cannot do one single good rep should give negatives a serious try.

Pete once told me to do ladders when i was strugling with my pull ups, basically do 1 rep, then 2 reps, 3, 4 etc to your max and back again. Can't remember exactly, but i think i had very short breaks in between, perhaps about 30 secs. Before you know it, you have done 15+ reps in total - not a bad result for a person who is struggling with pullups!
