100 chin-ups. Yes, full reange of motion ie. locked arms.
I use a pyramid style because it's the easiest way to reach your goal of one hundred. Like this: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 and same route down to complete 100. I rest about 10 secs between first 5 sets, between those longer sets I rest up to 90 secs. My record so far is 22 minutes. My bodyweight is about 195lbs, so losing weight might help a little.
Do not try to throw after this workout

I've heard that 50 reps is the most you should do at one time. I don't know how that pyramid of increasing and then decreasing reps per set complies to that. I think the 50 rep bit concerns only one set. Wouldn't the pyramid scheme allow the muscles the time to recuperate enough to go into the sleep mode in some parts from too many reps?
I have no idea how J-La does pull ups and what the correct form would be. Any tips on the correct form?
