I was never a fan of pull ups. You know why because I was unable to do them. 🙂 That thing changed when I was able to do them.
When I was a teenager, I read Arnold Schwarzenegger’s bodybuilding book and I was inspired and motivated. In that book Arnold has mentioned that if we are not able to do pull ups initially, we can do one or two repetitions unless we complete 50 repetitions.
Now that was a challenge for me because I was unable to do even half a repetition. 🙂 You can always take help of a spotter but that’s not the right way to do pull ups and I won’t recommend this.
There are many spotters that can help you but the best way is to build your arms and also lose fat weight.
So I felt something was wrong and decided I need to change few things. The biggest problem that I was facing when I was doing pull ups was that I was overweight and I was not able to lift my body.
So the first step in doing pull ups is that you have to make sure that you are not overweight. This means that you don’t have any extra fat on your body.
Once this is sorted out, you will be able to do pull ups smoothly.
There are many benefits of pull ups. I will share few benefits of pull ups for men and women.
The first benefit is that it works on your latissimus dorsi muscle which is your upper back. You will get that V shape that all men want and all women like.
It is considered one of a best exercise for your upper back and it will help to sculpt your upper back. You will get that chiselled look for your upper back.
The other benefit is that you will be able to pull up your body easily and this is benchmark of true fitness.
Another great advantage of pull ups is that, it improves your grip strength. When your grip strength is good, you will be able to lift heavy weights in all other exercises. This will lead to significant increase in muscle mass and also help you in toning your body part.
