How to Perform Pull Ups

Pull-ups are an extremely effective exercise for growing upper body muscles and maintaining a healthy posture. This is one of the favorite exercises for many men. Usually, they pay attention to the classic version, but in fact, there are a lot of them, and each has a different effect on muscle development. Pull-ups have their own technical characteristics that must be considered in order to get the most out of your workout.

Perform Pull Ups

If you do not have physical activity, this can lead to the fact that the muscles become small and weak. We gain excess weight, and the load falls on the joints, ligaments, bones, and vertebrae. The result of this is back pain, crooked posture, osteochondrosis, pinched blood vessels, and an unattractive figure. With pull-ups, you can improve your overall fitness level and eliminate these unpleasant factors.

What works during pull-ups?

  • Wide muscle: lower back, trapezius, rhomboid, round;
  • Muscles of the chest: pectoralis major and minor, serratus anterior;
  • Arm muscles: biceps, triceps, delts, forearms;
  • Core muscles.

These exercises will help you build an aesthetic body. If you can’t go to the gym, do it on street sports grounds.
