Like burpees, doing pull ups isn’t many people’s favorite exercise. That doesn’t mean it can’t be done! The most traditional pull up is using your body weight, which is often the most challenging option.
This exercise offers a great upper-body workout that can tone the back, arms, and chest. Need more incentive? Not only will pull ups help make you stronger, executing this move can also give you the extra boost of confidence you need to feel like you can do anything.
With your palms facing away from you, grip a pull-up bar with your arms extended. Keep your core tight while engaging your back and lats, bring yourself up until your chin passes above the bar, and then lower yourself down into the starting position. Make sure to avoid swinging your body or using your neck for added momentum.
