Building Stronger Pull-Ups

The importance of fundamentals can’t be stressed enough at the Sweat Shop. They are important for developing the necessary strength to perform basic movements and to reduce the likelihood of injury. They also help make skill transfer to more advanced movements easier. I made this short video to give you all some easy tips for strengthening your pull-ups. Wether you are someone close to getting your first unassisted pull-up, or have hit a wall in your performance of all things pullup, you will benefit from doing these drills and mindful habits on a regular basis. You’ll notice that all of these are done STRICT. Contrary to popular belief, strict work, NOT EXTRA CHALK, is the key to success! Hope you all enjoy. Try some of these out the next time you are in the gym.
