When you perform a complete pull-up, you are literally lifting your entire body weight up and down with only your upper body.
That’s why it’s such an incredible exercise that I not only do myself, but recommend to almost anyone.
But like a movie, the pull-up movement has a beginning, middle, and end. If you don’t know how to do each part the right way, you’ll struggle to get higher than a few inches.
(Thinking it’s just “pull yourself up” is one of the biggest reasons so many don’t get anywhere with this exercise.)
You’re not going to make that mistake, though. Over the next 10 weeks, you’ll pick up, improve, and perfect your technique - and upper body strength - to where you can keep pumping out pull-ups again and again.
