Want your first strict pull-up? Or your third?
Let’s get your shoulders feeling bulletproof and ramp you past your plateau!
TECHNIQUE MATTERS PEOPLE
Flaring those elbows and arching your chest may seem to help, but you'll likely plateau quickly or even start noticing some shoulder/elbow twinginess (I don't think that's a word but we're going with it).
Your body is ONE deeply interconnected system.
When we honor this and learn how to properly engage from head to toe, we get stronger and more resilient.
POINTS OF PERFORMANCE = TOP DOWN
Performing a pullup like this will be HARDER. But if you can check your ego at the door, you'll be struttin' around like a boss in no time.
One of my absolute favorite things is giving my people a plan when they're in the gym and helping them make it a place that forges their physical and mental strength. Movement is an integral part of our health, and I care deeply about helping people see it as something that can bring enjoyment - not something to dread.
Have you ever done a strict pullup? Can you do them now? I'd love to hear where you're at!
