The next exercise that you shouldbe doing is the pull-up now I know that a lot of people can’t do pull-ups
when they first start but I’ve trained so many people men and women that I’ve taught how to master the pull-up.It really is easy as long as you do the right things and make small incremental progress over time.
the reason why the pull up is so important to master is because you might lose your footing and fall off a ladder, you might slip off a roof, or you might trip on a trail, in fact,
that’s actually happened to my dad when I was a kid and I watched him pull himself back up on to the trail using a tree.
So accidents really do happen and the pull up can help give you plenty of upper body strength to deal with many different emergency situations.
But let’s say that you’ve tried to do a pull-up and you just can’t even get your nose Over the Bar without jumping…..like I said that’s totally fine.
Most gyms have assisted pull-up machines where you can select a counterweight to help you up along the movement.
However, you want to select as little resistance as possible for assistance. And whatever amount of weight you need
when you first start you want to gradually work your way down until eventually, you don’t need any assistance at all.
If you don’t have an assisted pull-up machine don’t worry there are very cheap resistance bands that you can buy and attach to a regular pull-up bar.
I’ve used these bands on clients to help them progress to a regular bodyweight pull up so I know they work.I’ll include a link in the description below for a really cheap set of these bands.
