PULL UPS!!! – I love love LOVE them!
Yep that’s right, one of the hardest moves to do in training! Pull-ups are a compound movement and if you want to drop body fat, build strength and muscle definition in your upper body, shoulders and arms- then you should be including them in your workouts!
Over the years at The Evolution Project, Camberley I have coached a lot of men and women of all sizes and ages to achieve pull-ups! I believe anyone can master this move and when you do, it is hugely rewarding and satisfying!
What most people do not fully realise, is the benefits from achieving such a tough move! Look at a body of a gymnast, their physique, strength and definition is incredible and the majority of them do a lot of pull-ups!
Pull-ups help increase the intensity of a workout, which aid in fat loss
Increase muscle definition
Increase strength in your back, arms and your grip
When performed correctly, they help aid your posture and flexibility
If you want to move from Rows or TRX pull-ups to Bar Pull-ups but are having trouble mastering the exercise, negative pull-ups are the best way to start to build strength and muscle to help you!
Negative Pull-ups – Jump up or use a box to bring you to the top of the pull-up bar. Maintain good form and slowly control your descent for 10 seconds on the way down until your arms are straight. Repeat 6-8 times. When you can control your descent for 20 seconds, you should be able to try 1 full pull-up.
If you are not already doing so, start introducing pull-ups into your workouts on a regular basis! To further your training and increase your results, contact us for access to The Evolution Project where we can take your journey to the next level!
