A pull-up is an upper-body compound pulling exercise. Although it can be performed with any grip, in recent years some have used the term to refer more specifically to a pull-up performed with a palms-forward position. A traditional pull-up relies on upper body strength with no swinging or “kipping” (using a forceful initial movement of the legs in order to gain momentum).
Muscles integrated into the exercise:
- Latissimus dorsi
Your Health Coach recommends a daily routine of 3 rounds and 10 repetitions of:
