Pushups, pullups, and squats and my favorite bodyweight exercises.

Is one better than the other?

If I had no choice, I'd do pull ups. But I have a choice, so I do both. Now get to work, son.

>>20003861 lat pulldown is nicer in keeping track of gains but you can do pull ups pretty much anywhere, and you feel like a boss doing weighted pullups. >take son to playground >get angry looks from parents when I'm doing pullups on swingset >they just jelly mirin

Both... I do pullups, close grip pulldowns, wide grip pulldowns, cable pulldowns one arm at a time, seated rows

>>20003861 Pullups all the way. Pullups are good if you can properly pull your scapula back. Lat pulldowns otherwise.

>>20003950 >>20003924 Does it help to do both if you work your muscles to failure on one of them? Do you really need 2 very similar exercises?

>>20003891 Don't forget your sit-ups and dips.

>>20003974 Yes, close grip works your lower lats more. I've been destroying my lats lately because they're lagging bad, so that's why I do so many different exercises.

pull ups without a doubt feels more natural, doesn't hurt my hands as much, and when I use the lat pulldown machine I usually do about 105kg, which makes it creak rather ominously

>>20003974 Yes, it's fine. >>20003999 ^ This guy has it correctly. In all honesty, you guys worry waaay to fucking much about this lifting shit, just go lift. Seriously. I'm getting tired of people at my gym always asking the stupidest shit, should I do this, should I do that, should I do this one like that, nigga, please just fucking lift and stop over thinking shit. This isn't god damn rocket science. Get in the gym, go fucking hard, lift your weights, do your cardio, go fucking hard. You'll get results.

>>20003968 >Pullups are good if you can properly pull your scapula back. Can you explain this? Why is that important?
