Frankly, it doesn’t matter if you’re struggling to do one pull-up or if you’re banging out multiple pull-ups and just want to take your game to the next level… I can help you get there. Just watch the video to the right if you’re not convinced.
You see, there was a time where I could barely hang from the pull-up bar and do a single pull-up. My brain could NOT get my muscles to pull me to the bar no matter how hard I tried and how strong my back was. These days I can knock out rep after rep of pull-ups because of a unique and relatively strange new training method that I’ve discovered.
Before I tell you all about this strange new pull-up training system, let me first set the record straight on some things…
I’m a forty-nine year old former grade school teacher and a mother of two teenagers. And I refuse to let my age and gender define my performance.
And very much like you, I enjoy being active; I like challenging myself, and boring “gym” type workouts aren’t for me.
Well, first off, it’s the only exercise that I know of that defines what a true challenge workout is. Think about it… all other exercises require that you either pull or push only a portion of your body weight.
But pull-ups are the ONLY exercise where your entire bodyweight is hanging by your arms and ALL of your bodyweight serves as the resistance.
Plus unless you develop outstanding grip and forearm strength you’ll never maximize your pull-up prowess because your grip will always tire out before your back muscles do leaving you frustrated and disappointed.
Not to mention that the all-mighty pull up is something that less than five percent of the population can actually accomplish.
The pull-up is heralded as the ultimate challenge – the ultimate test of one’s total body strength and endurance, and the standard by which one’s level of fitness is ultimately judged.
Simply put… you can cheat your way though practically any exercise, but not pull-ups. Look, you aren’t really fit unless you are banging out a few rounds of pull-ups with ease.
But your body is NOT the only thing that changes with your mastery of the pull-up. Your sense of self-worth changes too.
People are naturally drawn to exceptional things. And the pull-up, as you are well aware, is no easy feat.
So you can just imagine all the attention you’ll get while effortlessly banging out one pull-up after another – from the gym staff, to the trainers, to the beginners getting back into shape, and even to those in single digit body fat. Your pull-up prowess will not only draw their attention, but earn their respect and admiration as well – especially if you are a woman.
In fact, that’s just what happened to me, you’ll find out how I stupefied a gym full of fitness professionals when I banged out a ton of perfect pull ups…read on…
See unlike all other exercises you can’t build your pull up strength and endurance using traditional progressive resistance training.
Take the bench press for example. If your goal is to rep out fifteen reps with 225 pounds, you wouldn’t go into the gym and load the bar up with 225 lbs and start pressing, would you?
What you might do however is to load the bench press bar up… Read more…
