The Pull Up is a fantastic bodyweight exercise that primarily targets the muscles in the back but also hits the biceps as well.
Watch the PULL UP: exercise demonstration video above.
To perform PULL UP:
1. With a shoulder width, overhand grip, grab a pull up bar with both of your hands and hang with your arms fully extended and your legs straight. If the bar is not high enough to hang with straight legs, interlock your feet and bend your knees behind you.
2. Initiate the move by contracting your back muscles to pull your chest up to the bar.
3. Keep your core tight, your glutes contracted, and your body in a straight line when pulling.
4. Then under control, slowly lower your body back to the starting position with your arms fully extended.
