Learn How to Do a Pull Up By Training These Muscle Groups

Banging out multiple pull-ups in a row looks impressive, and rightly so! Start your journey to the bar with three weeks of upper body exercises.

This functional exercise isn’t nearly as easy as it looks, and many people who can do hundreds of push-ups get wobbling Jello arms at the pull-up bar. If pull-ups are a fitness goal, step one should be training all of the core and upper body muscles that are necessary at the pull-up bar. Getting there takes some commitment — about three weeks of strength training. The good news is that with enough preparation, you should be knocking out pull-ups with ease.
