satchmo satchmoWhat you can do today should have been done yesterday.
This morning, I attempted to set a personal record for pull-ups.

Pro skill :D
I can barely do 15.

Nicely done - try to get rid of the swinging motion, though, it's inefficient and probably prevented you from getting a solid 35.

Way to go!
I agree with Archie on the swinging.
Either cancel the swing, or learn to kip.

This makes me want to do pullups. I can do 7 at once but I'm not exactly skinny haha.

Crossfit helps :)

Never thought of doing the pull-ups like that. You're in good shape!

I tried not to swing, but when you are doing them fast, the swinging is almost inevitable. If I do them more slowly, I could eliminate the swing, but I wouldn't be able to do as many reps because it would take longer.

Around the fifth rep, you can see on the video that I tried to slow down to dampen the swing.
