Pull Up

To perform a pull-up, you need a safe place 🙂 If you have not a bar, be creative… and be careful! Grab with the palms facing forward. Your hands at a distance wider than your shoulder width.
Extend both arms as you inhale. This is your starting position.
Exhale, contract your lats and pull your torso up by drawing the shoulders and the upper arms down and back. The forearms should do not work.
Inhale and slowly back to the starting position when your arms are extended and your lats stretched.

Great traditional back exercise. Super for developing that wonderful “V” shape. A must part of anyone works out!
Great exercise to share.


I think it’s quite rare for a girl to be able to do a pull up, but boy I want to! x

One of my new goals is to be able to do pull ups! Working hard towards it!


Those, I cannot do because my joints are stiff and my fingers no longer curl well enough to support my weight, so is there something else? I do push ups rather well, (the straight legged kind) so would that be good enough?

This is the exercise that got me dreaming as a kid. I just need to find a suitable place. The door frames at home are no good.
