do you know how to do pull ups?any tips for starters like myself i want to do one and dont know what workouts will do to strengthen my upper body
Google 'inverted row' to see some pics/demos. When I started doing pullups I was doing inverted rows on a railing... There are many different ways to get a good height bar you can use.
Also 'negative pullup,' where you jump to the pullup top position and lower yourself down, is a really good one.
Keep a log to ensure progress. I use 'simple workout log.' Do like three to five sets, of a number that challenges you. It's okay if you have different numbers each set, but try to get an estimated idea of what number is a good one to start with so you are still able to perform well on your last sets. Each time, log your workout and try to increase your numbers. You'll soon be able to do a pullup if you work these two exercises.
