There are several things you should be able to do as a human, one of the most essential is to pull your bodyweight. In todays society this doesn’t hold much weight, we no longer have to escape from many things, we don’t have to track and hunt our prey. However, this should be no excuse for not being able to pull your own body weight! Anyone familiar with my training techniques will no that bodyweight always comes first! If you can’t do 10 pull-ups you have no business doing dumbbell curls (sorry frat boys). So what can you do about it? Well, lets start bydoing more pull-ups, all kinds of pull-ups.
Here are some programs to help increase your natural bodyweight strength. Be sure to try different variations of grip and tempo as you go.
- Grab a 15lb and a 10 lb dumbbell and tuck it between your legs…
- Do 7 pullups with the 15
- Do 7 pullups with the 10
- Do 7 pullups at body weight
- Repeat for 3 sets of 21.
