How to get the art of performing pull-ups right?

by Personal Trainer In Home Personal Trainer in Boston

Pull-ups! Regardless of being one of the most effective exercises to get a chiseled physique, not many people do it. Agreed, it’s intimidating and it’s tough, but once you're aware of how to lay the foundations, you can master it.

It’s important to remember you can’t master the art of pull-ups in just a short span of time. For that matter, it’s ludicrous to assume you could master any workout plan in a brief stint. So, you must only build your strength first and work your way up to mastering them.

Start with the Machine

Before you attempt to do a full-body pull-up, you must familiarize yourself with the machine. With the support of the machine, you’ll be able to counterbalance your own body weight so that it’s easier to lift.

Practice with the Dip Bars

Resorting to the dip bars or even the vertical knee raise station is a great course of action to work your way up to a full body-weight pull-up.

Here’s how you can work with dip bars

Stand in the middle of the dip bars while facing out, grip onto the bars and squat down. Afterward, bring into play your back muscles and lower limb strength to push yourself back up to the bars. As your strength increases, you can make the most of your back strength to pull yourself back up.

Once you’ve practiced enough, stretch out your legs directly in front of you with heels on the ground. This action will make the exercise a lot harder but help build up your back muscles even more. Make sure you always keep your chest and torso upright together with your hips below your shoulders.


 Use the Pull-Up Bar

You can take on a personal trainer in Boston to perform a pull up on your own. They will help you get the needed push to pull your weight up. Alternatively, you can also make use of a stool. Position the stool right underneath the bar and then grip the bar while pushing off from the stool with your legs. It is necessary to have your knee pointed downwards so you don't lose your balance.

Be patient

It doesn’t make a difference whether you have the strength and the equipment to work with, when it comes to doing a full body-weight pull-up, you must take your time and then work your way up. A number of exercises will help you strengthen your back muscles and improve your endurance so you can pull your weight up more effortlessly.

Again, it’s ideal that you work with a personal trainer as they can help you steadily progress to a complete pull-up while maintaining your proper form.
