Gymnast pullup routine

I had read about this routine from one of Charles Poliquin's articles. He is a very well known strength coach/ trainer. It is a routine that gymnasts use to build their impressive backs. I did take the original and made some adjustments. Just make sure you are strong enough to do 12 chin ups and at least 10 pull ups before trying this. Basically if you are not advanced than I would not attempt this.

Wide grip pull ups-as many as possible
10 second rest
Narrow grip pull ups-as many as possible
10 second rest
Neutral grip chin ups ( palms facing each other )-as many as possible

Rest 3 minutes and repeat 2-3 more times. You will be in pain!
