I'm pretty chubby at 255 and I can do about 20 consecutive "nose ups" with no kip. If you ask for a "chin up" - you'll need to distinguish "which chin."

I can only do about 5 chest to the bar dead hangs. I could probably get the tip of my goatee over the bar for a good set of 10 to 15 dead hangs if I was fresh.

It's all relative and a function of years of training. And I'm proud of my ab/android. I've got a lot invested in him. Plus it matters less the more you approach middle age and the closer your children get to becoming legitimate teenagers.

all the best,
Lifting heavy stuff is fun and relative......
