Straight Arm Pull-aparts
– The body can be loaded in a variety of ways (barbell, vest, goblet, suitcase).We will be using either goblet or suitcase today.
– Reduce momentum and assistance of the lower leg.
– Drive the heal through the box and drive your hip into extension to raise the chest. (Squeeze your butt!).
– Avoid if knee pain is present and reduce load and box height when beginning.

Another 6 Week Pull-up program has come to an end. I hope you were able to get that very first bodyweight pull, started using a smaller band or were able to exceed your total from our initial test. Not only do I think strict pull-ups are very important to upper body development but they also improve strength and stability in the shoulder joint and help them become more durable, carrying over into kipping pull-ups.
