Coach's Tips


How to

Starting Position

1. Stand in front of a pull-up bar with your hands slightly wider than shoulder width apart. 2. Reach up and grab the bar firmly with an overhand grip. 3. Hang from the bar with your arms straight and your feet off the ground.

Proper Form

1. Pull your body up towards the bar until your chin is over the bar. 2. Slowly lower yourself back down to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. As you pull your body up towards the bar, exhale. 2. As you lower your body back down to the starting position, inhale.


1. Make sure to keep your elbows close to your body as you pull yourself up. 2. Don't swing your body or use momentum to help you lift yourself up. 3. Don't use a grip that's too wide as this can cause shoulder pain.
