    Something like 35 kg, but the chinup was very wobbly.

    Sorry if I wasn't specific enough.
    My goal right now is to be able to chinup with 80 lbs or so for 1-2 reps.
  7. Best set x rep scheme for improving weighted chinups

    So I am kind of stuck at 27.5kg (~60lbs) on weighted chinups.
    Up until now, I've been doing 5/3/2 with 3 min rest, 3 times per week.
    But I read recently (by Pavel) that this isn't the best for...

    Just google "Fighter Pullup program pdf" and you'll find it. It was designed by Pavel but I'm not really sure if it's free (it looks that way though, it's all over the internet).

    Yes, a great exercise for sure but like you described, a bit hard to learn without proper coaching.
    I tried it, it didn't feel right, one of the reasons I was asking about the Side Press.

    Got it thanks, I actually like the minimalist approach to strength training.

    I was wondering though why not do both the Side Press and the Bench Press (does the side press work the chest?).

    So Pavel prefers the BP over the SP?

    So I was really interested in doing the Side Press for my shoulder exercise (discovered it from PTTP) and done it for the first time in the gym today (loved it).

    It's safer than a military press...

    I'm far from an expert but from what I read and learned, if your hands are torn, you better stop snatching or they won't heal as fast.

    As for the snatch test, no gloves (of any kind) are allowed.
