How To Do Pull Ups
I get asked how to do pull ups by at least one fellow gym-goer nearly every time I train them. In most of these instances I am approached by women, to whom the ability to do pull ups seems like some kind of a superpower. Well, the truth is a few short years ago I was one of those women; in fact at that point I could do ZERO pull ups. Fast forward to today and my record for consecutive pull ups stands at 13, and I routinely train with multiple sets between 5 and 10 reps. So how did I do it? I assure you that no superpowers were involved. Hang tight with me for a few and I’m gonna lay it all out for you.
