Just out of curiosity, how long did it take people to get to where they want to be as far as pullups are concerned? It took me about 3 months of pullups and pushups 4 days a week to get from 9 to 18. I will add as a caveat that I was kinda/sorta a vegetarian during that time. Also, 6' 4" and 195 lbs. This is doing about 50-75 pullups trying to follow Maj. Armstrong's workout, and maybe 100 pushups with occasional bench press.
