He fails to help those of us who can't even do one pull up.

Start out by doing 12 sets of 1 pull-up with a 45-second break between sets. Do the routine two times a week. Once you can do two pull-ups, begin this routine:

Week 1: 6 sets of 2 reps. 45-second break in between sets. Twice a week.

Week 2: 5 sets of 3 reps. Twice a week.

Week 3: 4 Sets of 4 reps. Twice a week.

Week 4: 3 Sets of 6 reps. Twice a week. If you’re able to do more, go ahead. Like I said, by this time I was able to increase my reps to 10.

What do you mean? He started with the Reverse Pull-up for those that can't do one pull-up.

Okay then what about a person who can't do a reverse pull up?
