I LOVE PULL UPS To me the Pull Up is the ultimate test of your fitness level. People always ask me how much can you bench. The TRUE WARRIORS…The ULTIMATE FIT BEASTS…THE ELITE AHTLETES can bang out a few rounds of pull-ups with ease. That is the true test of your total upper body strength and endurance. I’m talking FULL PULL UPS TOO! FUNK’S PULL UPS You can pretty much cheat your way through practically any exercise, but not pull-ups. You can either do them or you can’t. I starting to add more pull ups and chin ups to my Spartan Workout routines and that means for some men and women out there, my programs are unreachable for some. I want you to be able to do pull ups, I even want you to cheat. There I said it. It doesn’t sound right, but yes, if you want to learn how to do more pull ups, you need to cheat a little.

It’s quite amazing! In the fitness circles, Shawna is fondly known as the “Pull-Up Queen” and a she’s been teaching a method of training called ‘controlled cheating’ and it’s going to help get your first pull up or your tenth, or more. Check out the video below to see Shawna K provide three tips to mastering the pull up. These tips are all methods of ‘controlled cheating’ that you can use to help you improve your pull up power. The first pull up tip is to get into the best body position. The second pull up tip is to try an assisted pull up using a resistance band. The third pull up tip is to incorporate a ‘kip’.
