Would you believe …“How to do a pull up” (or chin up) is among the most searched exercise related terms online.
Which surprises me. If so many people are searching for pull up tutorials, why aren’t they executed better in our gyms?
Rarely do I see someone complete reps with chest to bar, or start and end the rep at the bottom with elbows locked straight. Which represents the correct technique.
I believe it’s because most people have poor scapular control and tend to initiate the pull up using their biceps, instead of their lats, traps and rhomboids.
If you struggle to get your chest to the bar, then you likely fall into this cohort.
Alas, we’ve got you covered. Rad and the content team just dropped a brand new complete guide for beginner pull ups.
