  1. Hi,

    Just wondering do you have any useful tips on the Horizontal Pullups? Currently on a night I can do 1×18, 2×12 at sternum height and then I am beat.

    I guess I just need to struggle on adding reps each time is what is the best suggestion.

    I have never lifted weights of any type before and have skinny arms (12′) so that may be my isssue as im beginning from a basic position.

    Any feedback or tips would be appreciated


    • Hey David,

      How’re ya brotha? Let me see, useful time on Horizontal Pulls … I’m assuming you’ve completed the Vertical Pulls prior to starting on these? I’m curious about your rest time’s man – as in rest time between sets and rest time between days? You may be overworking yourself, therefore not allowing enough time for complete recovery.

      If your allowing yourself enough time to recover ( sets & days ), there’s a few things you could do to potentially push you past your current plateau you seem to be stuck at.

      I’d say to try doing a few days worth of your pulls with a backpack full of weight, or anything really to add enough weight to you so you max out at ~ 10-12 reps. Give that like a week or two worth of training ( whatever your workout schedule may be ), then go back to the pure body weight Horizontal Pulls & you should see some increase in rep count.

      It’s no big issue that you’ve never lifted any weights before, if anything I’d have to say you haven’t developed any bad habits from it that way.

      I’ve never actually worked out with you, so I dont know what kind of person you are. That being said, mental blocks are extremely powerful my friend. If you get any crumb of doubt going on in your head, your body reacts to that – consciously or unconsciously. Week upon week of this crumb of doubt, has now snowballed into something much greater than you can imagine. Don’t give into it man, take control and most importantly don’t give up. Never give up man.

      Just keep at it my friend. You will keep getting stronger every time you do this routine. It may not be immediate, but the next time you do it, it’ll be easier and easier. That’s the beauty of it, as long as you don’t quit or allow your mind to setup its own barriers, you’ll always progress.

      There are no limits, only plateaus 🙂


      • Hi Big B,

        I have completed the vertical pulls quite easily but it seems like a big jump to Horizontal Pulls and luckily enough I am not getting any doubths about CC as I am loving it. I currently leave about 4 minutes between sets and as its the New Blood routine I am only doing HP’s once a week which I dont think is enough practice to be honest.

        Anyhow thanks for the tips and i will try adding weight. I also got another tip which was GTG if you have heard of it which seems like quite a good idea and which I started doing last night. I will let you know how I get on with it as it might be useful fo you too at a later stage. i stick to 50% of my max reps. Some more discussion on GTG here:



        I think my long term goal is to be able to do this which CC2 helps with too, very cool:
