Pull-Ups Power

Pull-ups are a great way to test your strength-to-weight ratio and build your core and upper-body power.

They require a simple overhead bar as equipment, which is easily available.

Our Mind is the Obstacle

Our Mind is the Obstacle

Many of us are stopped from being able to do pull-ups is our mistaken belief that we can't do itThe notion inside our mind that we can't do a pull-up is a major reason for our incapacity to do it.

Another reason most people cannot do pull-ups is the lack of regular practice. The gym-goers use equipment that narrows their muscle variations and doesn't replicate the real action of a pull-up.

Start Doing Pull-ups

Get your mind to doing pulls by these three essential variations: 

  • The Partner-assisted pull-up in which a partner 'spots' you around the back area. 
  • The Negative Pull-up in which you start from the top and slowly move down, using the same set of muscles. 
  • The Jumping Pull-up in which you give yourself a head start by jumping for the first one.

Pull-Up by Machine Assist

Some people are unable to do pull-ups, even on a pull-up assist machine in the gym.

The 'assist' part of the pull-up aid machine might be the reason for the inability, as it can act as a 'crutch'.
