Why do pull-ups?
Are you serious about improving your health and fitness level?
Then do pull-ups!
This is one of the most important exercises you can do in the gym (or better outdoors if possible). It is a multi-joint compound exercise that involves multiple muscle groups at the same time. It is better than “regular” gym exercises for people who train with health and fitness in mind and don’t want to become bodybuilding champions. It saves time and creates functional strength applicable to other physical activities - work or other sports.
The benefits you will get from performing regular pull-ups include:
- functional strength increase
- posture improvements
- back pain alleviation
- a better looking physique
This site builds on the program used by Major Charles L. Armstrong, USMC to prepare himself to attempt to set a world record in number of pull-ups completed in a single exercise session. A program tailored for people interested in improving the number of chin-ups completed in a set can be found at chin-ups-training.com.
Users have achieved remarkable results in only 6 to 8 weeks. This means that most, if not all, have been able to meet the performance level they have set out to achieve, a single set of twenty repetitions.
You can already do 10 consecutive pull-ups. Great! You are among the few ones who can. By following this program you will probably be able to reach the 20 repetitions target in about 6 weeks.
Most people cannot do even one pull-up. No matter what your level is, this program will help you greatly improve your performance and will put you on your way to 20 pull-ups.
