    Can you do (I don't get technical and differentiate between chip up and pull up. Just get the chin up there any way you can):

    1. in one go?
    2. In 30 minutes?

    I can do 12 (the 12th is getting pretty rough) in one go.
    And in 30 minutes I do 50.

    I find them a very good exercise for traps and bicepts.

    I could barely do 3 a year ago.

    After maxing out on 12 for more than a decade, I managed to pull out 13 last year - pull ups though.

    I generally aim for 50 in about 25 min.

    Legit used to do 150-200 over the course of an hour and a half gym session (not all at once obviously). 10-20 in a set. But they were always semi-supinated grip because I've had shoulder problems from bowling, so it's a bit of a cop out cos they were definitely not as hard.

    Then my shoulder really f**ked out 18 months or so ago and now I can do zero.

    When I came back in think I went down to 8 for the first set, then 5-6 for every set onwards.

    And the next day I was in incredible pain, haha. Just keep at it.
