  • To pull up efficiently, you almost have to think about pulling the apparatus down to you. What does this mean? It means you have to start from a strong stable position and then "just" bend your arms. .
    First "set" your scapula - basically enhance your perfect hanging position. You should feel your middle and lower trapezius working between your shoulder blades and your core muscles are keeping your ribs down and in.
    .
    Next, initiate your pull by bending your elbows and trying to make them point in front of you. This initiation is the hardest part! The transition from hanging to pulling takes the most control and strength. Here you should feel your arms rotate at the joint (go rotator cuff go!) to bring your elbows forward and your lats start working hard to bring your arms towards your body (and your body up) and the biceps and triceps join in to help you complete the movement.
    .
    Struggling with your pull up? Get a spotter or a heavy band to help you reduce the load. Or, Start at the top of the motion and practice lowering down. Don& #039 ;t forget to give the moment that you initiate the pull a little extra attention. Try transitioning from hanging to pulling with your feet on the ground and see if you can keep your shoulder blades stable while you do it.
    .
    Later in the week I& #039 ;ll go over common errors involved with pull ups, so check back if you& #039 ;re still finding problems stabilizing. .
