REGULAR PULL-UPS

Exercise / Lats

How to perform the exercise

Grab the pull-up bar with your hands in an overhand grip a bit wider than shoulder width apart. Keep your body straight and feet together.

Exercise Tips

  • Inhale and pull your body up until your chin is over the bar
  • Exhale at the end of the pull
  • Lower your body until arms are fully extended.

Variations

  • EXERCISE REGRESSION. Regular chin-ups
  • EXERCISE PROGRESSION. Wide grip pull-ups

Recommendations

Your body should be straight throughout the motion and there should be no swinging during the exercise. Do not extend your
neck to reach the pull-up bar, because that shortens the range of motion and therefore the effectiveness of the exercise.
