chin ups
My body type is Endomorph, I am 7months into it I notice the change. But I am not satisfied. My brother and others fom this site has been saying that i need to incorporate chin ups as a must. I have now kicked into a whole other gear. Now I am not afraid to train heavy now. I tired doing chin ups and I was only able to do 1 1/2 now I need to get stronger on that. My question is do I lift more weights that geared to the upper body or do I just keep at it. Any suggestions. PLUS I WANT TO THANK ALL OF YOU GUYS WHO HAS HELPED ME BY SUGGESTION AND COMMENTS, I LOOKING BETTER AND FEELING BETTER. NOTE*** EVERY PLEASE LISTEN AND FOLLOW THE SUGGESTION THEY DO WORK.

Keep at it.

Try jump chins with a long negative.

The way I got better at them was this:

Do 1 pull up. Then 2. Then 3. All the way until you can't get any more. Then do 1 less than the max you just did, all the way back down to 1.

Like this: 1, 2, 3, 2, 1.

You can do pull downs, too, but don't use them as a substitute.

If you force your body to get bigger in every aspect, you force the arm/back muscles that power chin-ups to get better as well. It's not really that different from any other exercise - eat a lot, hit the big three, and you as a person will explode. Then go do some chin-ups.

edit - what i really should have said was, post your routine/diet and that'll help

if your doing rows that'll help to. but you should do like 5x1 on pull-ups or something untill you can do more.
