Course Description

In this course you will learn to work up to a pull-up, and then have an exercise routine that will help you train and become better at doing pull-ups so that you can work up to being able to do 10 pull-ups and beyond.

The pull-up is a great exercise that works your arms, back, shoulders and even your core. It is one of the best calisthenics exercises there is. In fact, we show you some advanced variations of how you can incorporate the pull-up in a larger workout routine to train your full body from your legs to your abs to your upper body.

If you have ever wanted to be able to do a pull-up, but were never able to, we show you how to train to build up to a single pull-up and go far beyond that.
