5 Ways To Get REALLY Good At Pull-Ups (Thread):

Getting good at pull-ups will get you:

- A great v-taper
- Functional strength
- Python arms
- A broad back

And into the top 10% of Men Over 40 (if you're in this category).

Here's how to get it all - the best is last:
#1) Practise

You need to practise pull-ups frequently.

Ideally, 3+ times per week, if this is an area of focus for you.

It's IMPOSSIBLE to get good at these, without frequent practise.

#2) Dead Hangs

These are tough.

Mentally and physically challenging.

But they'll strengthen all the muscles you need to perform a FULL pull-up.

Simply hang there for time - seek to increase this week on week.

#3) Negatives

Same benefits as above, but potentially a little better for your Central Nervous System as the movement pattern is identical.

Start from the top, and SLOWLY drop down to the bottom.

#4) Assisted Machines

These are great for getting some volume and repetition in.

VERY helpful if you're on tight schedule, and want to do many sets of many reps every workout (following on from point #1).


Sure, you need a certain muscular infrastructure and a certain amount of strength.

But it's going to be VERY difficult to get good at pull-ups if you have tons of dead weight on you (A.K.A fat).

Get lean.

Pull-ups will get easier.
