    In my peak I could hit almost thirty. Several months of wine-inspired insulation later, I'd be lucky to hit half of that.

    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.

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

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