I don’t make these kind of posts often, if ever, but shown here is my client, who trains at thepitsingapore, hitting her first pull up! (actually third because this is the third set) She goes on to do 2 more sets of 2. It’s only been 3 weeks since we decided to make pull ups a goal and start focusing on technique.
Michele has already been lifting very consistently and has gotten pretty strong from all the strength work we’ve been doing. You will be amazed at what technique, proper programming, and consistency can bring you. No shit, strength work gets you stronger. It’s basic stuff: compound lifts for low reps, compound lifts for high reps, isolation work to address weaknesses and lagging parts. Every now and then we’d put in some variation for fun but the fundamentals were largely the same; squat, hip hinge, push and pull, with linear progression.
I’m not a miracle worker, I can’t make just anyone do a pull up in three weeks. Michele was already strong, so all I had to do was reinforce proper technique. Moral of the story: do your strength work.
