How to Do a Pull Up- Step Five

Are you ready?

Can you feel the excitement?

After all of your hard work over the last month is about to pay off.

To recap what you’ve done:

STEP ONE- Flexed Arm Hang

STEP TWO- Slow Descent

STEP THREE- Chin Up

STEP FOUR- Mixed Grip

I know you’re ready for it!

STEP FIVE- THE REAL DEAL

Start with one.

See how you feel.

See if you can add ONE more.

Go ahead.  You can do it!

 

What’s next?  Keep working at the pull up.  Even if you try it every other day now (rather than every day like you’ve been doing), see if you can add one rep each week.  You’re using muscles in your arms, shoulders, back, chest, abs, and legs.  What a great full body exercise!

Learning to do a pull up is a WAKE UP CALL for your kinetic chain.  You have to have all of your muscles firing together in order to be successful.  If you can carry over this awareness of muscle synchronicity to other exercises in your workout, you’ll develop a stronger, better coordinated, more efficient body.

And isn’t that what we’re all aiming for?

Want to make my day?  Leave me a comment and let me know of your pull up success.  I want to congratulate you on your hard work!
