Can I get a list of all workouts that include pull ups/chin ups?

Can I get a list of all workouts that contain pull ups or chin ups? I haven't been using my Perfect Pullup bar as much as I should (I highly recommend getting one though). The only workouts I have right now that include them are Cross Pit and the Navy Seal workouts with the late Scott Helvenston. I believe there's at least one P90x that has them, too.

I've been having a lot of success with my informal upper body/lower body rotation and the pull ups I've been doing give such incredible results. It'd be great to have some standard workouts that include them. tia

Cathe's STS Mesocycle 2 has chin-ups and pull-ups in the Back & Biceps DVDs (disc 15, 18, 21, and 24).

On a side note, how do you like the Perfect Pullup bar, pumptmuscle? I have a power tower but am thinking about selling it and downsizing to a bar I can put over my entryway to save space.

And if you don't want to buy the STS set, you can always download just the workouts you want for about 9.99 each. I got rid of STS a while back but recently downloaded PLYO legs Meso 3 and a couple of workouts from Meso 1.

Thanks Marcy and Dena for the suggestions. Geez, as time goes on, I keep feeling like I need P90x more and more.

As for the Perfect Pullup bar, I love it! The swing arm allows you to pull yourself up from varying positions to make it easier or harder. Although they say there are just 3 positions, depending where you put your feet, it's adjustable to wherever you want.

It's perfect for super setting up or down. You can begin with a hard version then quickly transition into easier ones by moving your feet backwards of forwards to adjust. It's a really great way to work up to full pull ups or get in an incredible back workout.

I got mine at Target around the summer for $19.99 on clearance. I'm not sure if any stores would still have it but it's so worth it if you can find one. I believe it was originally $100 and I'd say even $50 would be a great deal for what it does. Of course, paying only $20 was much nicer than $50.

Thanks for the info. I'll check around on-line and at local stores to see if I can find it.

This is only on vhs, and I offered it in the Share the Wealth thread last month, as well as its sister tape: Chest, Shoulders and Triceps. If anyone is interested, let me know.
