How to Really Do a Pull Up

by Joe

When performing a pullup, focus on pulling with your ELBOWS instead of your hands to get up there.

When you pull with your hands, you will cause your biceps to come in play.

You should think of your hands are merely 'HOOKS', to hold onto the bar.

As you pull up, arch your back and squeeze you shoulder blades together at the top.

Lower yourself back down to the starting position but keep tension on the lats in the bottom position.

You do NOT want to relax the lats. Now go back up for the next rep.

You must learn to pull with your elbows and back muscles and not with your hands.

This is the key to making sure that the back gets worked mostly and not the biceps.
