How to Do a Pull Up

A pull up is a very challenging exercise. If you're new to pull ups, try using an assisted band to help you achieve a pull up.

  1. Grab hold of the bar and let your body hang. Make sure your hands are a little wider than your shoulders.
  2. Engage your core and begin to pull yourself up toward the bar.
  3. Once your chin is above the bar, hold for 1 to 2 counts and slowly lower down.
  4. As you lower, don't extend your arms completely. This will keep your body engaged.
