So, does my dream sound familiar? Is it something that you've always wanted to do as well, but don't know the road to get there? Well, I'm on the journey and if you are up to the challenge, you are free to join me in my journey. I have the benefit of having my hubby train me and we've already started, but I will be sharing with you what I'm doing to get to me my goal. My wish is that I have pictures sent to me with tons of people performing unassisted pull ups for the first time.
The workouts I post for this training is specifically meant to get you to your goal of the pullup and can/should be done in conjunction with your normal workout routine. These exercises will be specifically targets to strengthening the muscles need to get your chin above that bar...that damn bar!
So, here is the first workout. It's simple, but tough. It left me sore for days and I loved it.
We are doing 20-15-10. That means the first set consists of 20 reps, the second 15, and the last 10. You may think this is crazy because doing 10 pushups for beginners is hard, but you can take breaks in between the reps. However, keep those breaks SHORT. Below you will find pictures of some of the exercises to help you understand what I am looking for and/or how you can use what you have around you to complete the exercises.
Once you have completed this workout, leave me a comment and let me know how it went and also how you felt the next day. I love hearing experiences.
You will need access to a pull up bar. There is no way around this when training for pull ups. Monkey bars will do as well. Get created and think outside the box.
- Rubber band
- Low bar
- TRX/Olympic Rings
These can be performed on a TRX or Olympic Rings, as well. If you look at the pictures below, your elbows come out wide, they should not be close to your body.
Together, we will get there.
Your Personal Trainer,
