    I do 10 of those with an extra 5kg weight. I'm 82kg. Close grip, I have no idea how many. Don't bother doing them anymore.

    Used to do 3x10.

    Doubt I'd be able to do 3x5 nowadays, haven't attempted a pull-up in a long time.

    Just had a go and managed to do eight before dropping. Narrow grip though, I find the wider grip much harder.

    PB is 10.

    Generally just do heavy chins for <5 reps now though.
