The rep goal system is awesome.


As for those dips? Do more *sets* until you can do more *reps per set*, is my advice: start with 5 (or more!) sets @ max reps. Get at least 30 reps total - again, just my advice.

Your body will adapt, and grow, if you do it that way.


For pullups, you could try a resistance band. Or o a few reps, rest a while, do a few more, etc. - then follow that with a bunch of pullup negatives.

Or even do some lat pulldowns in the meantime (3 sets, with a 20 or 25 rep goal, say).
