Video: Exercise to Notice for March 2018

Pullup Routine

Member Reinhardt Seyffertitz is demonstrating our exercise of the month. The pullup will work at building your back, arms, chest and shoulders. When you do a pullup, you engage your lats, mid-back, rear delts, biceps, forearms, and core. 

Another benefit of body-weight training is that it’s low-impact. As a result, you can train more frequently than if you were using heavy weights, and the more often you work out, the greater your potential to build muscle.

Pull-Up Instructions

  • Grasp the bar with a wider-than-shoulder-width pronated (overhand) grip.
  • Hang with your arms and shoulders fully stretched
  • Exhale as you pull your body up until your chin rises above the bar
  • Hold for a count of two and squeeze your back muscles.
  • Inhale as you lower your body until your arms and shoulders are fully stretched.
