How to Archer Pull Up

Starting Position

1. Begin by standing in front of a pull-up bar. Reach up and grab the bar with an overhand grip, palms facing away from you.

2. Step back until your arms are extended in front of you and your body is in a straight line from your head to your heels. This is the starting position.

Proper Form

1. Keeping your body in a straight line, pull yourself up towards the bar.

2. Continue to pull until your chin is over the bar, then slowly lower yourself back to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. Exhale as you pull your body up towards the bar.

2. Inhale as you lower your body back to the starting position.


1. Make sure to keep your body in a straight line throughout the exercise. Do not swing your body or use momentum to pull yourself up.

2. Do not arch your back or allow your shoulders to shrug.

3. Do not lock your elbows at the top of the movement.
