The pull up is the most functional back exercise... wait did I say back? I meant to say pretty much whole body exercise there is. Packed with muscle building, functionality and calorie burning within this movement.
I know I’m doing a pull up on a wall not the most efficient way. But that shows that you can pretty much do a pull up anywhere without the hassle of getting a bar. Just make sure it is a safe and sturdy place before you carry out this exercise.
If you can’t do a pull up then work with the lat pulldown machine, assisted band pull-ups or reverse pull-ups these should help develop your pull up technique.
If you have the pull-up on or in Lockdown pardon the pun. Then you should aim for 10-12 reps 2-3 sets. Or you can do it to failure. If you want to build power then use a weighted vest. Build endurance then do 15 plus reps.
So start pulling up and get yourself to a more functional and strong body.
