Coach's Tips

The stronger you push your legs, the more help you get. When you come down, it's recommended to hang slowly on the bar and come down!

How to

Starting Position

1. Lie down on a flat bench with your feet flat on the floor. 2. Place your hands on the barbell slightly wider than shoulder-width apart, palms facing away from you.

Proper Form

1. Take a deep breath in and as you exhale, pull the barbell up towards your chest. 2. Keep your elbows close to your sides and your back flat as you pull. 3. Once the barbell touches your chest, inhale and slowly lower the barbell back to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. Take a deep breath in before you initiate the pull-up. 2. Exhale as you pull the barbell up towards your chest. 3. Inhale as you slowly lower the barbell back to the starting position.

Precautions

1. Make sure to keep your back flat and elbows close to your sides throughout the entire movement. 2. Avoid jerking or using momentum to pull the barbell up. 3. If you are a novice gym goer, start with lighter weights and progress as your strength increases.
