THE ULTIMATE PULL-UP PROGRAM
The Secret to a Sculpted Upper Body
AND Untapped Strength
You CAN achieve both, either at the gym or in the comfort and safety of your home.
Let me tell you about Evelyn. When you surf through Instagram and see women doing pull-ups, what do you normally see?
Unfortunately, you see very few women banging out pull-ups, as many women have been falsely led to believe that they are not capable of performing them. Many others are not training for pull-ups in a way that is conducive to success. Most of the women you tend to see thriving at pull-ups are elite athletes in their twenties or early thirties.
Not Evelyn, though. She happens to be in her late fifties, and can routinely perform a minimum of six pull-ups on a dime. At a time when most people attribute their lack of ability to aging, Evelyn is putting them to shame.
When Evelyn first came to me, she was suffering from debilitating neck and back discomfort.
Life certainly wasn’t easy for her. Forget doing pull-ups. Getting groceries, walking her dog, and performing regular daily tasks were, quite literally, a pain in the neck.
So, when Evelyn and I started working together, not only did I have the challenge of helping her reach her goal—the ability to do a pull-up—but I was also on a mission to help her rebuild her body so that she could properly achieve this goal for the first time in her life. Evelyn accomplished her goal, and we did so as a team.

What did this involve?
Proper Body Positioning
Before Evelyn touched the pull-up bar, we practiced the raw technique of a proper pull-up and worked on mastering the basics.
Think of your body as a chain. When all of the links in this chain are strong, your ability to perform most exercises, including pull-ups, should dramatically improve. You do not want a weak link in your chain, and this applies to your entire body. If your core is weak, and the core includes all of the muscles in your body aside from your arms and legs, your ability to perform pull-ups will likely suffer.
Mastering The Fundamentals
And Following The Key Steps
Many people make the mistake of trying to go from A-Z, and do not follow the essential steps that will actually help them improve their pull-up technique, full body strength, controlled mobility, and stability/tension. As a result, they fail to excel at achieving their pull-up specific goals. Depending on where your starting point is, performing the appropriate pull-up regressions, horizontal pulling exercises, scapula/shoulder controlled mobility exercises, lumbo-pelvic stability exercises, grip exercises, and even lower body exercises, and only progressing when you are ready, will better prepare you to conquer the pull-up. Many people skip key steps and wonder why they aren’t making progress, get frustrated, and quit. Don’t make this mistake. Be patient, and the results will pay off.
So back to Evelyn, all of her training was done progressively, systematically, and consistently, and she reached her goal. In fact, she blew her goal of one pull-up out of the water. Now she is able to perform six. As an unintended bonus, her debilitating back and neck discomfort were gone. She also sculpted the muscles in her upper body, and felt more empowered than ever. With that in mind, it’s time to reevaluate your game plan.
