How can you do multiple pull ups and still be over weight?
By getting the chin over the bar...

The best advice my Coach ever gave me was "eat through the sticking points."

Electronically I gave him two mego thumbs up and made my way to Cici's Pizza.

Dialing it back in sucks mucho donkey ballz.

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

I am 255 and about 20% body fat and I can do pull ups. Work negatives and once you get one, grease the groove, do weighted sets, use bands for high reps, mix your grip and all of a sudden you start stringing them together. I just dropped 10 pounds and I got a few more in a lot easier than I did before. Being lighter helps, but it isn't a pre-requisite.
