Can you do a pull-up??
If not, no biggie! I’m here to help. This is part one of a two part post designed to help you achieve your first full body weight pull up!
Here’s three different exercises to add to your workouts for the next couple weeks to go from where you are now to a perfect pull up. Those three exercises are:
1️⃣ TRX Assisted Pull-up - make sure to only use your legs as needed. The goal is to just use them for stability and only push through the leg if you need to
2️⃣ Band Assisted Pull -up- you can also use an assisted pull up machine at your local gym if you don’t have a band. Let the band help take away some BW. The stronger the band, the easier it will be. Use lighter and lighter bands as you get stronger.
3️⃣ Flexed arm hang. - this is great to develop strength at the top, where a lot of people fail. Use a boost to get up top and hold on for as long as you can! Make sure to use your back, and not your arms.
Use these three throughout your training program and keep the reps high. When just starting out you need to have a lot of reps to get your brain to understand how to be efficient in the movement.
If you have questions let me know and happy training! Part two coming out tomorrow for those of you farther along!
