I've started doing bodyweight exercises at home, but it feels like my muscles give out neurologically before I really get to tear into the muscle? I don't know how to explain it. But its left my workouts feeling unfulfilling, like mentally I can do more and I'm not getting the pump I'd like. This might be because I used to lift weights a lot years ago, and my mind & body still remembers it but is just considerably weaker now.
Anyway, what's the optimal way to increase training volume on bodyweight exercises such as pullups and pushups for example? Would doing low reps and high sets get my body used to moving its own weight.. Or should I just continue to aim for a higher number, going to failure and doing less complete sets?
