    Chin Ups:How many can you do?

    How many chin ups (palms facing in) can you complete in a single set?

    Chin-ups are not the part of my routine workouts. I have tried it a couple of times and was able to do a set of 6 chin-ups (palms facing in).

      That's more than most people can do on their initial attempts.

    None. I have never been able to do these but again, I never practised them either. Maybe a bit late to start trying now - but hey, never say "never"!

      You are probably in the majority Dreamer but you're right it's never too late :-)

    Well the Marines had a booth at a water park and were giving away t-shirts if you did 25 chin-ups. I ended up doing 50, 25 at a time with a few minutes rest in between (both of my kids wanted a t-shirt). So in one set, probably around 35-40

    Unassisted I can't do any but with a chair or band I can do 8-10. I really need to work on my upper body strength though.

    20 with perfect form! That's a perfect score on the Marine Corps physical fitness test.

    I start to get tired at fifteen, but I can push through to twenty.  I do pullups/chinups just about every day.

      Thanks Rob.  I honestly think I could stay in shape with just jogging, chip-ups and chest dips

    I don't normally do chin ups with my workout, but after reading this question I was curious to see how many I could do.  I did 5 - actually more than I thought I could.  Looks like I need to do some more lat pull downs.

      5 is better than most for a first attempt.Mix a set or 2 into a few of your workouts per week and you'll make good progress.Doing them regularly is key to getting the numbers up.
